Characterization of the sequence and expression pattern of LFY homologues from dogwood species (Cornus) with divergent inflorescence archite...
Background and Aims LFY homologues encode transcription factors that regulate the transition from vegetative to reproductive growth in flowering plants and have been shown to control inﬂorescence patterning in model species. This study investigated the expression patterns of LFY homologues within th...
Nutrient reserves may allow for genome size increase: evidence from comparison of geophytes and their sister non-geophytic relatives.
Background and Aims The genome size of an organism is determined by its capacity to tolerate genome expansion, given the species' life strategy and the limits of a particular environment, and the ability for retrotransposon suppression and/or removal. In some giant-genomed bulb geophytes, this toler...
The tannosome is an organelle forming condensed tannins in the chlorophyllous organs of Tracheophyta.
Background and Aims Condensed tannins (also called proanthocyanidins) are widespread polymers of catechins and are essential for the defence mechanisms of vascular plants (Tracheophyta). A large body of evidence argues for the synthesis of monomeric epicatechin on the cytosolic face of the endoplasm...
Community-wide assessment of pollen limitation in hummingbird-pollinated plants of a tropical montane rain forest.
Although pollen limitation of reproduction (PL) has been widely studied, our understanding of its occurrence in tropical communities, especially for bird-pollinated plants, is underdeveloped. In addition, inclusion of both quantity and quality aspects in studies of PL are generally lacking. Within h...
Soybean leaf hydraulic conductance does not acclimate to growth at elevated [CO2] or temperature in growth chambers or in the field.
These results were validated with field experiments on soybean grown under free-air elevated [CO2] (FACE) and canopy warming. In chamber studies, Kleaf did not acclimate to growth at elevated [CO2], even though stomatal conductance decreased and photosynthesis increased. Growth at elevated temperatu...
Specificity of extrafloral nectar induction by herbivores differs among native and invasive populations of tallow tree.
These results suggest that constitutive and induced indirect defences are retained in juvenile plants of invasive populations even during plant establishment, perhaps due to generalist herbivory in the introduced range. However, responses specific to a specialist herbivore may be reduced in the intr...
Root-root interactions: extending our perspective to be more inclusive of the range of theories in ecology and agriculture using in-vivo ana...
We can apply the same conceptual framework to crop versus natural species. Conclusions The development of non-invasive methods to dynamically study root-root interactions in vivo will provide the necessary tools to study a more inclusive conceptual framework for root-root interactions. By following...
Identification and characterization of ten new water gaps in seeds and fruits with physical dormancy and classification of water-gap complex...
Physical dormancy (PY) occurs in seeds or fruits of 18 angiosperm families and is caused by a water-impermeable palisade cell layer(s) in seed or fruit coats. Prior to germination, the seed or fruit coat of species with PY must become permeable in order to imbibe water. Breaking of PY involves forma...
Independent effects of warming and nitrogen addition on plant phenology in the Inner Mongolian steppe.
Background and Aims Phenology is one of most sensitive traits of plants in response to regional climate warming. Better understanding of the interactive effects between warming and other environmental change factors, such as increasing atmosphere nitrogen (N) deposition, is critical for projection o...
A pollinators' eye view of a shelter mimicry system.
Background and Aims 'Human-red' flowers are traditionally considered to be rather unpopular with bees, yet some allogamous species in the section Oncocyclus (genus Iris, Iridaceae) have evolved specialized interactions with their pollinators, a narrow taxonomic range of male solitary bees. The dark-...
