Older and Stronger
Abstract: A close relative of aspirin helps plants fight disease once they're mature, according to a new report. The results provide insight into a way in which some organisms get robust rather than feeble as they grow old. Some researchers caution, however, that salicylic acid's place in this so-called age-related resistance system is not yet clear.
