Physiology is concerned with the functioning of plants. This is largely interactions between plants and their environments. As such plant physiology bridges the gap between biochemistry and ecology.
This site lists Plant Hormones and their characteristics and goes on to try to provide unifying 'reasons' for their effects. It is not part of current scientific thinking.
Summary of research exploring the physiological basis for high accumulation of cadmium (Cd) in durum wheat grain.
The Flowering Newsletter is an online publication from the International Working Group on Flowering and aims to speedily report on research dealing with the flowering process.
News involving NERC, funding opportunities, details of NERC funded science and research centers.

The CPL is primarily funded by NASA and most research is dedicated towards optimizing the growth of several plant species, including wheat, soybean, rice, lettuce, tomatoes, radishes, and carrots for use in bio-regenerative life support systems. The lab is also involved in several non-NASA related research projects, including phytoremediation and phytotoxicity experiments.
