Global plant–symbiont organization and emergence of biogeochemical cycles resolved by evolution-based trait modelling (Nature Ecol Evol)

Most plants depend on microbial partners (symbionts) to help them take up nutrients from the soil. Lu and Hedin set out to identify how these plant-symbiont partnerships contribute to plant distributions and biogeochemical cycles, using an evolution-based modelling approach. The model takes into account forest carbon and nutrient cycles, nutrient limitations and the exchange of […]

Mathematical modeling approaches in plant metabolomics

Mathematical modeling, as a series of useful methods for functional and causal interpretation of experimental high-throughput studies, enables us to explore the complex field of plant metabolism. The application of differential equations as a mathematical method has been developed and reviewed for decades and has been used to describe, analyze, and predict complex and nonintuitive […]
