During the summer, I solicited advice of
papers to assign students to read and present in
my plant phys class. I had quite a good response.
I append a list of the submitted papers, in no
particular order. Thanks to everyone who gave me
suggestions. If you missed my post during the
summer and you have some favorite papers that are
not on the below list, please don't hesitate to
send me the citations.
