Seedling Germination: Seedlings Follow Sunshine and Fresh Air



Seedling Germination: Seedlings Follow Sunshine and Fresh Air



Current Biology 25(13): R565-R566



The journey from seedling to plant requires guidance in the dark to establish which directions the roots and shoots should grow. A new study shows that, after germinating in darkness, plant seedlings sense the oxygen content of the surrounding airspace to guide further development.
