    • Weed Management in 2050: Perspectives on the Future of Weed Science 

      Westwood, James H.; Charudattan, Raghavan; Duke, Stephen O.; Fennimore, Steven A.; Marrone, Pam; Slaughter, David C.; Swanton, Clarence; Zollinger, Richard (Weed Science Society of America, 2018-02-21)
      The discipline of weed science is at a critical juncture. Decades of efficient chemical weed control have led to a rise in the number of herbicide-resistant weed populations, with few new herbicides with unique modes of ...
    • What is the "real" impact of invasive plant species? 

      Barney, Jacob; Tekiela, Daniel R.; Dollete, Eugene S. J.; Tomasek, Bradley J. (Ecological Society of America, 2013-08)
      Invasive plant species should be evaluated and prioritized for management according to their impacts, which include reduction in native diversity, changes to nutrient pools, and alteration of fire regimes. However, the ...
    • What We Talk about When We Talk about Soil Health 

      Stewart, Ryan D.; Jian, Jinshi; Gyawali, Ayush J.; Thomason, Wade E.; Badgley, Brian D.; Reiter, Mark S.; Strickland, Michael S. (American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, 2018-11-01)
      Despite a nationwide emphasis on improving soil health in the United States, current measurement protocols have little consistency. To survey assessment practices, we conducted a meta-analysis of cover crop (n = 86) and ...
    • Wind-driven spume droplet production and the transport of Pseudomonas syringae from aquatic environments 

      Pietsch, Renee B.; Grothe, Hinrich; Hanlon, Regina; Powers, Craig W.; Jung, Sunghwan; Ross, Shane D.; Schmale, David G. III (PeerJ, 2018-09-26)
      Natural aquatic environments such as oceans, lakes, and rivers are home to a tremendous diversity of microorganisms. Some may cross the air-water interface within droplets and become airborne, with the potential to impact ...
    • XcisClique: analysis of regulatory bicliques 

      Pati, Amrita; Vasquez-Robinet, Cecilia; Heath, Lenwood S.; Grene, Ruth; Murali, T. M. (2006-04-21)
      Background Modeling of cis-elements or regulatory motifs in promoter (upstream) regions of genes is a challenging computational problem. In this work, set of regulatory motifs simultaneously present in the promoters of a ...
    • Zoospore interspecific signaling promotes plant infection by Phytophthora 

      Kong, P; Tyler, BM; Richardson, PA; Lee, BWK; Zhou, ZS; Hong, C (Biomed Central Ltd, 2010-12-07)
      Background Oomycetes attack a huge variety of economically and ecologically important plants. These pathogens release, detect and respond to signal molecules to coordinate their communal behaviors including the infection ...
