Caption: Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, in collaboration with scientists from Tufts University and Stony Brook University, have applied some of the same techniques used in medical imaging to track the distribution of nutrients in poplar trees in response to a simulated insect attack. The research provides new insights on a long-debated theory about how plants respond to environmental stress, and shows that radiotracer imaging can be a big help in unraveling plant biochemistry.
