Title: Magnetoreception: an unavoidable step for plant evolution?
Title of journal: Trends in plant science
Series/Report no.: 1/19 (2014)
Publisher: Elsevier Science Limited
Issue Date: 2014
DOI: 10.1016/j.tplants.2013.10.007
Keywords: magnetoreception, plant, geomagnetif reversals
Abstract: The geomagnetic field (GMF) is steadily acting on living systems, and influences many biological processes. In animals, the mechanistic origin of the GMF effect has been clarified and cryptochrome has been suggested as a chemical magnetoreceptor. Here we propose a possible role for the GMF variations in plant evolution.
