Abstract

Nitrogen (N) limits plant growth in many ecosystems and denitrification is a major source of N loss from soils. Fallopia spp. is an invasive plant species complex adapted to low-fertility soils, which is responsible for biological denitrification inhibition (BDI) through the production of...

Abstract

Plant invasion succeeds because of such invader characteristics as fecundity and high-efficiency multiple reproduction modes. The acquisition of individual resources and the benefits of individual fitness are driven by optimum patterns of life history and trade-offs of reproductive allocation (RA)...

Abstract

Over the years surface water quality of Pakistani rivers has been degraded. The current study aims to investigate the water quality and fish diversity at Rasul Barrage in the Jhelum River. A total of six sampling sites were assessed for pollution levels and fish fauna of the Barrage....

Abstract

Alternanthera philoxeroides is a perennial invasive species worldwide which can greatly affect native ecosystems and agricultural production. Our research studied the allelopathic effects of aqueous extracts of A. philoxeroides on the growth and antioxidant enzyme activities of Zoysia matrella, and ...

Abstract

Wildfire is a key disturbance factor in terrestrial ecosystems that greatly influences not only ecosystem patterns and processes, but also maintaining of diversity, productivity and nutrient cycling throughout global ecosystems. Fire is the result of interaction between natural and anthropogenic...

Abstract

As a form of plant interaction, allelopathy plays a critical role in agriculture and forestry production, including biological invasion, continuous cropping obstacle and weed suppression. Consequently, it is important to guide production if we take advantage of plant allelopathy in crop production. ...

Abstract

PREMISE OF THE STUDY: The red flesh of some papaya cultivars is caused by a recessive loss-of-function mutation in the coding region of the chromoplast-specific lycopene beta cyclase gene (CYC-b). We performed an evolutionary genetic analysis of the CYC-b locus in wild and cultivated papaya to...

Abstract

The vectorial and dispersal capacities of flies make them a biosecurity and food safety risk on egg farms. The design of optimal control and biosecurity programs requires knowledge of species composition and patterns of abundance of the fly populations present. Although there have been many studies ...

Abstract

Ecological niche modeling has emerged as a notable tool in invasive species risk assessment. However, the advances of the ecological niche theory, the basis of ecological niche modeling, are not matched by availability of detailed biological data. Thus, we proposed a conceptual framework to refine...

Abstract

Most remote sensing approaches for mapping invasive plant species focus on species in a prominent phenological stage, such as during flowering, and do not systematically evaluate the performance for mapping lower cover fractions. In this study, we used airborne imaging spectroscopy (also known as...
