Bi-Weekly Speakers And Topics

A day of connecting. Of pushing comfort zones. #plantbiology15 day 1.

I went for a run this morning at 6:15am. It is now 20 past midnight. In between was day one of Plant Biology.

And yes, I was there the whole day, or interacting with people at the conference that whole time. 813 more words

Auxin keeps stomata in the dark

Posted by Seema Grewal

The development of stomata – the epidermal pores on plant leaves that regulate gas exchange – is tightly regulated by various environmental factors. 137 more words

Plant Tropisms: A* understanding for iGCSE Biology

Plant Sensitivity

Sensitivity is a characteristic of all living organisms.  It means the ability to detect and response to changes in the environment. When most students think of sensitivity they immediately think of receptors and the nervous system of mammals.   699 more words

Plant Tropisms - I can't make myself do it.....

Is there a single topic more likely to strike fear into the heart of a GCSE Biology student?  Everyone hates plant tropisms – students because it seems dull, and teachers because it seems like 19th century science and none of us can see for one second why it should appear in 21st century specifications…..   33 more words

The Auxin Receptor(s).

A few weeks ago, I wrote about auxin. And how auxin signaling works. As promised in my last post, I’m going to tell the story of identifying the auxin receptor and a recent development in the story. 1,724 more words
