Temperature increases affecting crop yields - Scientists discover the ‘why’ of heat tolerance in peas
From the Canadian Light Source:
A recent collaboration between the Canadian Light Source and the University of Saskatchewan Plant Science Department is proving the
potential for molecular imaging in plant research that could produce
greater yields, healthier varieties, and more food for a hungry planet
with a rising average temperature.
U of S plant scientist Dr. Rosalind Bueckert and CLS scientists Dr.
Chithra Karunakaran and Dr. Rachid Lahlali used the Mid-infrared
beamline to examine the development of pollen grains during the
development of two pea varieties exposed to heat stress.
