Scale invariance of daily runoff time series in agricultural watersheds
(Copernicus Publications, 2006)
Fractal scaling behavior of long-term records of daily runoff time series in 31 sub-watersheds covering a wide range of size were examined using the shifted box-counting method and Hurst resealed range (R/S) analysis. These ...
Genetic variants in root architecture-related genes in a Glycine soja accession, a potential resource to improve cultivated soybean
Background Root system architecture is important for water acquisition and nutrient acquisition for all crops. In soybean breeding programs, wild soybean alleles have been used successfully to enhance yield and seed ...
Using maize chromosome segment substitution line populations for the identification of loci associated with multiple disease resistance
(Genetics Society of America, 2019-01-09)
Southern Leaf Blight (SLB), Northern Leaf Blight (NLB), and Gray Leaf Spot (GLS) caused by Cochliobolus heterostrophus, Setosphaeria turcica, and Cercospora zeae-maydis respectively, are among the most important diseases ...
Registration of 'Secretariat' Winter Barley
‘Secretariat’ (Reg. No. CV-359, PI 673931) is a six-row hulled winter barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) developed by the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station and released in May 2014. Secretariat, formerly designated VA08B-85, ...
Facilitated iron reduction as a possible means of rejuvenating phosphorus removal performance of filtration substrates
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2011)
In order to mitigate nutrient pollution in surface runoff more sustainably, the finite capacity for phosphorus (P) sequestration in best management practices (BMP) that rely heavily on sorption processes must be addressed. ...
Fifty Years of Cereal Leaf Beetle in the U.S.: An Update on Its Biology, Management, and Current Research
(Entomological Society of America, 2011-10-01)
Cereal leaf beetle, Oulema melanopus L., is an introduced insect pest of small grains first recorded in the United States in the early 1960s. Since its introduction from Europe or Asia into Michigan, cereal leaf beetle has ...
CoSpliceNet: a framework for co-splicing network inference from transcriptomics data
Background: Alternative splicing has been proposed to increase transcript diversity and protein plasticity in eukaryotic organisms, but the extent to which this is the case is currently unclear, especially with regard to ...
Comparative genomics of the core and accessory genomes of 48 Sinorhizobium strains comprising five genospecies
Background The sinorhizobia are amongst the most well studied members of nitrogen-fixing root nodule bacteria and contribute substantial amounts of fixed nitrogen to the biosphere. While the alfalfa symbiont Sinorhizobium ...
