New article on plant resource transport and metabolism

Book CoverNew article on plant carbohydrate and nitrogen metabolism published with colleagues from the University of Missouri’s Bond Life Science Center.  The article describes our work with poplar seedlings and older trees, showing that wound responses include the rapid import of sugars but not extra nitrogen-based resources to wound sites such as grazed leaves.  The response is faciliated by jasmonic-acid induction for the activity of extracellular invertases and sugar importing proteins.  See the article here: http://www.landesbioscience.com/journals/psb/article/21900/
