Blushing plants reveal when fungi are growing in their roots
(University of Cambridge) Scientists have created plants whose cells and tissues 'blush' with beetroot pigments when they are colonised by fungi that help them take up nutrients from the soil. This is the first time this vital, 400 million year old process has been visualised in real time in full root systems of living plants. Understanding the dynamics of plant colonisation by fungi could help to make food production more sustainable in the future. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
