Our nitrogen 'footprint': the need for increased crop nitrogen use efficiency
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc. on behalf of the Association of Applied Biologists, 2013-09)
Nitrogen (N) is an essential element for the growth and development of all living organisms, as it is a constituent of DNA, RNA, ATP and protein. In plants, N is also an essential component of other key compounds including ...
Integration of molecular and physiological models to explain time of anthesis in wheat
(Oxford University Press (OUP) on behalf of the Annals of Botany Company, 2013-12-01)
Background and Aims - A model to predict anthesis time of a wheat plant from environmental and genetic information requires integration of current concepts in physiological and molecular biology. This paper describes the ...
Functional equivalence, competitive hierarchy and facilitation determine species coexistence in highly invaded grasslands
(Wiley on behalf of the New Phytologist Trust, 2015-04)
Alien and native plant species often differ in functional traits. Trait differences could lead to niche differences that minimize competitive interactions and stabilize coexistence. However, trait differences could also ...
Salinity stress effects on direct and indirect defence metabolites in maize
(Elsevier B.V., 2016-02)
© 2015 Elsevier B.V. In nature, plants are often exposed to multiple stress factors at the same time. The effects of single biotic or abiotic stresses on plant metabolism are well documented but how plants respond to a ...
