Gene Transcription in Conifer Branches under Gravity Stress

Pinus_radiata_Año_Nuevo_wiki

Trees can change their growth orientation in response to various environmental stresses (ie, wind, snow, light, gravity, artificial bending), and during this process reaction wood with modified characteristics and properties is formed. This paper is one of the first comprehensive investigations of tracheid characteristics, wood properties and gene transcription in branches of a conifer species in response to gravity stress.
