How do flowers know when it's time to bloom?
T in the plant’s vascular tissue, called the phloem, which carries sugars and nutrients from leaves to the rest of the plant. FT travels to the shoot apex, the highest point of new leaves and stems, where it promotes the formation of flowers.Flowering regulation is complex, with the release of FT controlled by more than 30 proteins in interacting cascades. “There’s a complicated network and you can’t unravel it until you realize what is going on with these particular cells, so the geography is very important,” says Turgeon.Because leaf veins are very small and covered by photosynthetic cells rich in green chlorophyll, identifying the FT-producing cells was difficult. In the study, Turgeon and colleagues used fluorescent proteins to identify the cells in the phloem (veins) where FT was produced.Finally, the mysterious first part of photosynthesis comes into viewThe researchers discovered that FT was also produced in the same type of companion cells in the phloem of Maryland Mammoth tobacco. Furthermore, when they killed these companion cells, it delayed flowering in both Arabidopisis and the tobacco plants.When they looked more closely at the pathways that lead to flowering, they found that killing these companion cells stopped the process downstream of FT, but not upstream, confirming that FT originates in these cells and that the synthesis of FT is regulated by an extensive intercellular signaling system.The findings appear in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Funding for the study came from the National Science Foundation and Purdue University.Source: Cornell University...Apr 6, 2018

Bernstein's genius flowers at Bard
Among Bernstein’s many notable compositions, his Candide stands near the apex.James Bagwell’s conducting of the chorus was magnificent. The large chorus added impressive impact to the libretto and offered wider social implications on how the central plot concerning the two star-plagued lovers carries wider social significance. Tenor Eric Finbarr Carey, a Walter W. Naumburg International Vocal Competition 2014 winner, in the role of ever-optimistic Candide, was resonant, mellifluous, and deft with dramatic nuance. The famous “Glitter and Be Gay” solo (perhaps the most fiendishly difficult run in all of opera with its high E-flats) was nailed with exuberant aplomb by Danika Felty in a stunning tour-de-force performance. Nathaniel Sullivan as Voltaire/Pangloss/Martin supplied dramatic panache with his amusing and enthusiastic phrasing of the prose parts of the libretto. Luke Macmillan as Maximilian was suave, debonair, and convincing as a villain. Elaine Daiber as gypsy Paquette invigorated the role with zest as she sang in high gear, especially in her duo with dynamic Felty.The overall effect of hearing an operetta sung in such clear English was a special pleasure since each word was distinct in its musical adornment.Throughout this comic, synoptic version of Voltaire’s novella, the libretto’s self-conscious jokes highlight the wandering absurdity of Voltaire’s ridiculous plot, which satirized the then-popular picaresque form, as well as fundamentalist optimism, and Christian persecution of innocents over “heresy.” Despite the brutal humor of Voltaire’s unrelenting cynicism, the final climatic chorus somehow conveyed a message of hope, which may be one of the few transformative, cathartic moments in operatic comedy. Despite the rampage of cynicism, one left the performance with lilting smile.I cannot recall such a long-standing audience ovation at the conclusion of a performance at Sosnoff Theater.

MYSTERY PLANT: Wildflower blooms in summer for as long as it can
In this case, all of the flower parts appear to arise at the very end, or apex of the ovary, and so the ovary is in a position below or inferior to the floral parts.
Other plants exhibit an alternative "superior" ovary, with the floral parts at the base of the ovary. A good example would be what happens with a tomato flower.
The tomato, as it swells, has a “blossom end” where it is attached to the flower. The position of the ovary, from species to species, is very important in separating different plant families.
Once pollination has occurred, the ovary of our mystery plant elongates considerably, often swelling somewhat toward the end. Plenty of tiny, pale tan seeds will be produced, and these will fall away once the matured ovary, now a capsule, splits open.
This plant is common in wet places, often in ditches or at pond edges or other marshy spots. It's found from Maryland to West Virginia and well into southern Florida, as well as Texas and the lower Midwestern states. It has plenty of near relatives, many of which are most common in South America.
Some of these are reasonably aggressive and are considered serious pests in wetlands. Otherwise, it is more distantly related to some very popular ornamental plants, including evening-primrose, as well as the cultivated fuchsias. This yellow-blooming wetland herb probably won't win many competitions in the flower shows, but it's nice to see on a mid-autumn day, bravely blooming up to the bitter end.
