Light signal perception in Arabidopsis rosettes
Keywords: Arabidopsis, light signaling, shade avoidance, competition
AbstractLight signals are important cues for future and current competition. We used an architectural model of Arabidopsis development to show that vertical growth of neighboring vegetation is more important than proximity for early detection of competition. Self-signaling is greatly enhanced when own organs grow more vertically, and signal strength differs between signal perception at the apex compared to the leaves.
