Sound the alarm! Roots and systemic plant defence
05 December 2016

When we’re threatened we tend to alert everyone around us, and it’s the same at the cellular level. The recent Journal of Experimental Botany paper from Agut et al. takes the specific case of two-spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae) attack on citrus, and in so doing brings new insights to the idea of a ‘shoot–root–shoot’ (SRS) loop in defending a multitude of plants against a similarly large variety of pests and pathogens. See also the separate Insight article from Simon Groen for an independent perspective on this vitally important area of research.
