How potatoes could become sun worshippers If the temperature is too high, potato plants form significantly lower numbers of tubers. Biochemists have now discovered the reason why. If the temperature rises, a so-called small RNA blocks the formation of tubers. The scientists have now successfully switched off this small RNA and have produced potato plants that are more resistant to high temperatures, which is an important contribution to securing crop yields in the future in view of climate change.
How far are German municipalities regarding climate change adaptation Which impacts had the German Adaptation Strategy on cities and communities?
