Plants do Math Overnight to Efficiently Use Food Stores

Nature World News: Plants perform precise arithmetic calculations to prevent starvation overnight, according to new research published in the open access journal eLife. Scientists working at the John Innes Centre (JIC) in Norfolk, England report that plants will make calculations that allow them to use up their reserves of starch so precisely that they are depleted at dawn, when a new round of photosynthesis begins.
