Abstract

Tree species in tropical dry forests employ a wide range of strategies to cope with seasonal drought, including regulation of hydraulic function. However, it is uncertain if co-occurring lianas also possess a diversity of strategies. For a taxonomically diverse group of 14 tree and 7 liana species,...

Abstract

Western white pine (Pinus monticola Dougl.) is an important forest tree species, which is intensively plagued by the fungus Cronartium ribicola. Resistance gene analogs (RGAs) are the most highly abundant class of potential resistance (R) genes sharing greatly conserved domains and structures....

Abstract

The leaf carbon isotope ratio (δ13C) is a useful parameter for predicting a plant's water use efficiency, as an indicator for plant classification, and even in the reconstruction of paleoclimatic environments. In this study, we investigated the spatial pattern of leaf δ13C values and its...

AbstractFull Text

Mycorrhizal symbiosis increases micro and macronutrients especially phosphorous. Ectomycorrhizal symbiosis is kind of mycorrhizal symbiosis, which occur between the roots of some forest trees and ectomycorrhiza fungi. In this symbiosis, energy transfers from plant to fungus and nutrient elements...
