Genome size coordinates cell sizes and packing densities throughout the leaf
New paper shows how multiple ecological axes contribute to gradients of selection
New paper proposes the primary dimensons of flower construction
A grant from NSF will support a collaboration with soft matter physicists to characterize and model 3D flower mesophyll tissue
The major driver influencing variation in 3D leaf mesophyll organization is the allometry of genome size and cell size
New paper explains how genome size limits maximum photosynthesis via its effects on cell sizes and packing densities.
Accepted paper explains how flower size and color have important effects on flower energy balance.
Published paper shows that flower physiological traits covary the same as leaves even though flowers are more hydraulically variable.
