Modelling of plant organs remains an open problem due to the complexity of plant architecture. In a new study, researchers aim to address this problem using elastic "beams" to model the shape of the Epipactis leaf.
A better understanding of viral expression systems is important to both basic and applied research. A new study in PeerJ advances our knowledge of the baculovirus promoter system with cross-disciplinary consequences.
37th AMLC Meeting Collection
The 37th AMLC scientific meeting was held in May 2015 on Curacao. This five day meeting focused on the ecological complexity of the Caribbean that provides countless opportunities for students of community ecology, as well as a similar number of challenges for managers of these ecosystems. Participants were encouraged to share new findings on the fundamental workings of intact or degraded coral reef ecosystems, and adjacent ecosystems such seagrass beds, mesophotic communities, and mangrove areas.
