Role of plant glyoxylate reductases during stress: a hypothesis.
Molecular modelling suggests that a group of proteins in plants known as the beta-hydroxyacid dehydrogenases, or the hydroxyisobutyrate dehydrogenase superfamily, includes enzymes that reduce succinic semialdehyde and glyoxylate to gamma-hydroxybutyrate and glycolate respectively. Recent biochemical...
Effects of hay management and native species sowing on grassland community structure, biomass, and restoration.
We present results from a long-term experiment conducted in a recently abandoned HILD hay field in eastern Kansas to evaluate effects of fertilization, haying, and native species sowing on community dynamics, biomass, and potential for restoration to native LIHD hay meadow. Fertilized plots maintain...
Phenotypic plasticity and longevity in plants and animals: cause and effect?
Immobile plants and immobile modular animals outlive unitary animals. This paper discusses competing but not necessarily mutually exclusive theories to explain this extreme longevity, especially from the perspective of phenotypic plasticity. Stem cell immortality, vascular autonomy, and epicormic br...
Breaching the dispersal barrier to invasion: quantification and management.
We investigated the logistics operations of the South African National Antarctic Programme (SANAP) and quantified the initial dispersal of alien species into the region. We found that over 1400 seeds from 99 taxa are transported into the Antarctic each field season in association with SANAP passenge...
A fence line in time demonstrates grazing-induced vegetation shifts and dynamics in the semiarid Succulent Karoo.
We investigate this issue by assessing the impacts of two contrasting livestock grazing intensities associated with communal and commercial ranching systems on the dwarf succulent shrublands of the Succulent Karoo in Namaqualand, South Africa. We interpret the results in terms of vegetation dynamics...
Functional adaptation and phenotypic plasticity at the cellular and whole plant level.
The ability to adaptively alter morphological, anatomical, or physiological functional traits to local environmental variations using external environmental cues is especially well expressed by all terrestrial and most aquatic plants. A ubiquitous cue eliciting these plastic phenotypic responses is...
Phytosociological studies of Citrullus colocyanthis L., Growing in Different Altitudinal Sites in Saudi Arabia
The aim of the present study was to survey and record the plant species associated with Citrullus colocynthis in different altitudinal localities in the West of Saudi Arabia. Depending on the presence of Citrullus colocynthis L. species, seven stands on the West of Saudi Arabia; expending from 25 m...
The 'mother of thousands' (Kalanchoë daigremontiana): a plant model for asexual reproduction and CAM studies.
Two-phase functional redundancy in plant communities along a grazing gradient in Mongolian rangelands.
We know little about how local extinctions in real communities might impact functional diversity. Here, we examined the relationship between species and functional diversity in plant communities along a grazing gradient across Mongolian rangeland ecosystems. We applied a recently described measure o...
