How to be the first in the plant kingdom
More than a third of the species of temperate perennial angiosperms choose an interesting strategy for a successful spring start – preformation of the inflorescence. The plants prepare an inflorescence in the bud on the wintering organ, which quickly develops with the arrival of spring and thus attracts the first pollinators. This procedure is mainly chosen by plants with large genomes. These results were obtained by a team of scientists from the Institute of Botany and published in the New Phytologist journal.

Synchrony matters more than species richness in plant community stability at a global scale
Synchrony matters more than species richness in plant community stability at a global scale. These results were obtained by an international team of scientists, including scientists from the Institute of Botany, and published in PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America).
