Localized responses to changes in the red to far-red ratio (R:FR) allow plants to efficiently forage for light in patchy canopies, and to fine-tune physiological activities to the local light environment. Recent studies are elucidating the molecular mechanisms that mediate localized responses to R:FR and the functional implications of these responses.
