ONLINE COVER This week features a Research Article that describes a mechanism involving signaling from the endoplasmic reticulum to brassinosteroid signaling that may allow plants to optimize growth during challenging environmental conditions. The image provides a representation of some of the extreme conditions that plants can face. In particular, it shows a hot, dry period, and the dark clouds imply an impending deluge.
