Plant Adaptation to Multiple Stresses during Submergence and Following Desubmergence
(Mdpi Ag, 2015-12-01)
Plants require water for growth and development, but excessive water negatively affects their productivity and viability. Flash floods occasionally result in complete submergence of plants in agricultural and natural ...
Phylogenomics Reveals Three Sources of Adaptive Variation during a Rapid Radiation
Speciation events often occur in rapid bursts of diversification, but the ecological and genetic factors that promote these radiations are still much debated. Using whole transcriptomes from all 13 species in the ecologically ...
Protoplast isolation prior to flow cytometry reveals clear patterns of endoreduplication in potato tubers, related species, and some starchy root crops
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2017-04-14)
Background: Endoreduplication, the process of DNA replication in the absence of cell division, is associated with specialized cellular function and increased cell size. Genes controlling endoreduplication in tomato fruit ...
The Divergent Roles of STAYGREEN (SGR) Homologs in Chlorophyll Degradation
(Korean Soc Molecular & Cellular Biology, 2015-05-31)
An aeroponic culture system for the study of root herbivory on Arabidopsis thaliana
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2011-03-10)
Background Plant defense against herbivory has been studied primarily in aerial tissues. However, complex defense mechanisms have evolved in all parts of the plant to combat herbivore attack and these mechanisms are likely ...
