Tradeoff between biomass and flavonoid accumulation in white clover reflects contrasting plant strategies
(Public Library of Science, 2011-04-19)
An outdoor study was conducted to examine relationships between plant productivity and stress-protective phenolic plant metabolites. Twenty-two populations of the pasture legume white clover were grown for 4½ months during ...
Exotic plant species are locally adapted but not to high ultraviolet-B radiation: A reciprocal multispecies experiment
(Ecological Society of America, 2019-04-29)
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation intensities differ among global regions, with significantly higher levels in the southern hemisphere. UV-B may act as an environmental filter during plant invasions, which might particularly apply ...
Investigating the consequences of trimming and crop removal on soluble solids and titratable acidity for Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir
(Winetitles Media, 2015-09)
Trimming vines and crop removal are vineyard management practices grapegrowers use to manage yield, control vegetative growth and vigour. However, these techniques may impact on berry composition at harvest. Trimming ...
Native distribution characteristics rather than functional traits explain preadaptation of invasive species to high-UV-B environments
Aim: Alien species successfully colonize new ranges if they encounter favourable environmental conditions there and possess traits that match new challenges. Climate-matching approaches comparing native and exotic ranges ...
Pedigree analysis of pre-breeding efforts in Trifolium spp. germplasm in New Zealand
(BMC (part of Springer Nature), 2020)
Background: Prebreeding in plants is the activity designed to identify useful characteristics from wild germplasm and its integration in breeding programs. Prebreeding aims to introduce new variation into the populations ...
