    Photosynthesis sites - A collection of links to photosynthesis-related sites.

    Madore Lab - Plant Metabolism and Physiology - The Madore Lab, University of California, USA researches plant carbohydrate metabolism, especially the unusual form of translocated sugars,e.g. raffinose family oligosaccharides. These oligosaccharides have been found in many plant families, however, their roles and metabolism are not well understood. They also research amino acid metabolism in plants since it is closely related to carbohydrate metabolism in terms of substrates and energy resources.

    Photosynthesis Center - The Photosynthesis Center at Arizona State University is a multidisciplinary group doing research in several areas of photosynthesis. Also, links to many other related sites.

    The Phytochemical World - Multimedia introduction to plant secondary metabolism. An overview of alkaloids, flavonoids, terpenoids, and phenylpropanoids as well as QuickTime movies of the biosynthesis of selected compounds.

    Plant Hormones - A comprehensive site on plant hormones from the University of Bristol, UK.

    Plant Photobiology Notes - How plants respond to light, and the study of these responses. Links to suppliers, publishers, journals, etc.

    Plants-In-Motion - Well-executed, time-lapse, QuickTime movies of plant growth & development - from Indiana Univ.

    Abscisic Acid.Com - A resource for information on abscisic acid, abscisic acid analogs and other related phytohormones.

    Global Change and Terrestrial Ecosystems - Focus 1 Homepage - The ecosystem physiology program within the Global Change and Terrestrial Ecosystems Core project. Includes details of the program, conferences, publications and science highlights.

    Czech Laboratory of Growth Regulators - Joint facility of Palacky University, Olomouc and the Institute of Experimental Botany, Czech Republic. The laboratory is involved in study of both plant and animal growth regulators (cytokinin, auxin, CDK inhibitors - olomoucin, roscovitin).

    Photosynthesis and the World Wide Web - A directory of educational photosynthesis sites, includes list of researchers, research groups and other sites.

    Nitrogen Fixation Research Center - Studies on the biological fixation of nitrogen at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

    Institute of Plant Physiology at the Bulgarian Acadamy of Sciences - Acad. M. Popov Institute of Plant Physiology of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences is a research centre for plant physiology and biochemistry in Bulgaria. The main research areas are plant growth and development, regulation of photosynthesis, plant mineral nutrition and plant water relations, and regulation of plant metabolism and gene expression.

    The Seed Biology Place - Website of Gerhard Leubner (Albert-Ludwigs-Universität) on seed biology: seed germination, dormancy, afterripening, ß-1,3-glucanase during endosperm rupture and coat-enhanced dormancy of tobacco.

    Institute of Plant Nutrition at Hohenheim University - The Institute of Plant Nutrition at Hohenheim University in Stuttgart, Germany, conducts research on many aspects of plant nutrition. The focus is on plant soil relationships.

    Natural Environmental Reseach Council - UK - News involving NERC, funding opportunities, details of NERC funded science and research centers.

    The Department of Forest Genetics and Plant Physiology - Details on the Department of Forest Genetics and Plant Physiology at the Swedish University of Agriculture Siences.

    Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology in Golm - The mission of the MPI-MP institute is to study biological phenomena in plants at a molecular level using systems (whole plant) biology to create a holistic picture of metabolism in the context of growth and development.

    Plant Physiology Section of the Botanical Institute at the University of Basel - This sections contains research groups working on: ethylene, mycorrhiza, fructans and other areas.

    Laboratory of Plant Physiology, University of Groningen - Plant Physiology lab, headed by Prof. T. Elzenga at the University of Groningen. Includes individual pages by members of the lab.

    Plant Physiology Resources - A listing of plant physiology web resources from the Australian National University Department of Biology.

    Plant Physiology Links for Students and Teachers - A large number of links that might be useful to students of plant physiology.

    An Explanation of Plant Hormones - An alternative view of plant hormones. This opinion is not part of current scientific thinking but proposes a broad theory on the role of plant hormones in plant life. - Dedicated to plant environmental stress in agriculture and biology. The site contains news, announcements, events, original articles, a reference database, files and presentations, biotech issues, more than 400 linked web resources and a bulletin board.

    Flowering Newsletter - 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.

    Environmental Biology Group at the Australian National University - Details of this group in the Research School for Biological Sciences. Covers the group's current research into 'fundamental aspects of plant physiological responses and adaptations to environmental variation and environmental stresses, including global climate change.'

    Water Relations in Cactaceae - Technical discussion of cacti water relations with separate sections on seeds, shoots and roots.

    The Abscisic Acid Site - An informational resource for the phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) - initially focused on metabolism and signaling. It is maintained at the Plant Biotechnology Institute in Saskatoon, Canada and also includes descriptions of their research programs and related material.

    Phototropism - This page gives an introduction to phototropism (a plant's response to light).

    Utah State University Crop Physiology Lab - 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.

    Nitrogen fixation - This web site is not designed to be a comprehensive presentation on nitrogen fixation, but rather it is intended as a forum to present informative images that are not otherwise easily available.
