We thus conclude that conical epidermal cells probably play a role in plant reproduction other than providing grip or tactile cues, such as increasing hydrophobicity or enhancing the visual signal. Journal home; Volumes and issues; Search within journal. While redox regulation of the main cytosolic MDH isoform has been shown, knowledge about regulation of the other two cytosolic MDHs as well as NAD‐MDH isoforms from peroxisomes and mitochondria is still lacking. Phenotypic traits are generated by images of RGB, hyperspectral, near-infrared, thermal, fluorescence imaging and so on. Securing and augmenting agricultural yield in times of global warming and population increase is urgent and should, aside from ameliorating saline soils, include attempts to increase crop plant salt tolerance. Large‐scale restoration programmes in the tropics require large volumes of high quality, genetically diverse and locally adapted seeds from a large number of species. We show that the expression of 185 TF genes changes when leaves develop from half to fully expanded leaves and finally enter partial senescence. ), European beech (Fagus sylvatica [L.]) and sessile oak (Quercus petraea (Matt.) Plant Biology; Photosynthetic sea slugs induce protective changes to the light reactions of the chloroplasts they steal from algae. This review updates the current knowledge on MDH isoforms and the shuttle systems for intercompartmental dicarboxylate exchange, focusing on the various metabolic functions of these valves. This facilitation of beech in mixture with oak means a contribution to the frequently reported overyield of beech in mixed versus pure stands. - 160.153.244.221. A considerable number of the senescence‐regulated TF genes were found to respond to abiotic stress, and salt stress appeared to be the major factor controlling their expression. 112 20 59 3054. Part of The journal encourages publications with an interdisciplinary approach. Progress in this area is providing opportunities to revisit how, when and which way senescence is coordinated or decoupled by plant regulators in different organs and will provide a powerful tool for plant physiology research. How plants respond to changes in these atmospheric air pollutants, both directly and indirectly, feeds back on atmospheric composition and climate, global net primary productivity and ecosystem service provisioning. Habitat fragmentation and small population size can lead to genetic erosion in threatened plant populations. All issues from Acta Botanica Neerlandica and Botanica Acta/ Berichte der Deutschen Botanischen Gesellschaft are now available online, comprising 97,796 pages of content between 1884-1996. 1. However, in small populations, sex ratios may be strongly male‐ or female‐biased, leading to substantial reductions in effective population size. This journal aims to acknowledge and encourage interdisciplinary research in fundamental plant sciences with scope to address crop improvement, biodiversity, nutrition and human health. We are pleased to announce that Plant Biology authors can now purchase professional video abstracts from Research Square. Please read more details, Responses of European forests to global change-type droughts. Journal of Plant Biology and Agriculture Science is an international circulating peer-reviewed Open Access journal, provides limitless access to our literature hub presenting original research contributions and scientific advances in the field of Agriculture and Plant Biology. We discuss the far‐reaching implications that these differences in stress response under intra‐ and inter‐specific environments have for forest ecosystem dynamics and management under climate change. For each species, the seeds were from multiple generations of seed production. Please read more details. Small bees acted as pollen thieves or robbers. Minerals such as potassium, molybdenum and lead increased, while manganese, iron, cadmium and silicon decreased, suggesting that adjustments of agricultural practices may be required to retain current grain quality standards. Indices for resistance, recovery and resilience were applied for quantifying the tree growth reaction on the episodic drought stress in 1976 and 2003. CO2 enrichment obviously affected grain quality characteristics that are important for consumer nutrition and health, and for industrial processing and marketing, which have to date received little attention. Females dominated 11 populations, which overall resulted in a slightly female‐biased sex ratio (61.5%). If you have a great topic or idea, you can propose a special issue and you will have the opportunity to be the Lead Guest Editor of the special issue. It is often inseparable from programmed cell death (PCD), and a correlation between these processes has been confirmed during the senescence of leaves and petals. (ii) In mixture, spruce and oak perform as in pure stands, but beech was significantly more resistant and resilient than in monoculture. Despite its destructive character, senescence is a precisely controlled process that follows a well‐defined order. 8.508 Q1.
