Abstract

Charcoal rot, caused by the fungus Macrophomina phaseolina, is an economically important disease of soybean (Glycine max) worldwide. Objectives of the present research were to (i) study the genetic and pathogenic diversity in a collection of M. phaseolina isolates from Argentina and Paraguay and...

Abstract

Bacillus velezensis SQR9 (former B. amyloliquefaciens SQR9) is a plant-growth-promoting rhizobacterium (PGPR) that promotes plant growth and health. The colonization of PGPR strains along plant roots is a prerequisite for them to execute their specific functions. However, one problem of microbial...

Abstract

The xenohormesis theory postulates that animals, through the consumption of chemical cues, mainly polyphenols, synthetized by plants, are able to favorably adapt to changing environmental conditions. We hypothesized that the intake of fruits with a seasonally distinctive phenotype (in terms of...

Abstract

Drip irrigation under plastic mulch is a common agricultural practice for oasis agroecosystems in the extensive arid regions of northwest China, and it is widely used to improve agricultural production by suppressing soil evaporation. The widespread application of plastic mulch has also obviously...

Abstract

Molecular diffusion is commonly assumed as main physical process of gas transport in soils. However, non-diffusive gas transport processes like the so-called pressure-pumping effect can affect soil gas transport significantly. The pressure-pumping effect has only been detected indirectly and the...

Abstract

Trees can adjust their hydraulic architecture by adjusting vessel size and frequency in response to stressful environmental condition. Little is known about the long term adjustment of tropical moist forest trees to changing environment. Here we develop the standard chronologies of seven vessel...

Abstract

Leaf area index (LAI) is a key parameter of vegetation structure in the fields of agriculture, forestry, and ecology. Optical indirect methods based on the Beer-Lambert law are widely adopted in numerous fields given their high efficiency and feasibility for LAI estimation. These methods have...

Abstract

Extreme drought and precipitation are expected to occur more frequently due to climate change, which may influence the water uptake patterns by vegetation in the rocky mountainous area of northern China. In this work, dual stable isotopes were used to detect the water sources of mixed forest of...

Abstract

Understanding the responses of soil respiration (Rs) to thinning is essential to evaluate the effects of management practices on carbon cycling in plantation forest ecosystems. However, how Rs and its components (autotrophic, Ra and heterotrophic respiration, Rh) vary with thinning intensity and...

Abstract

Fog is a frequent phenomenon in tropical montane cloud forests (TMCFs). These ecosystems are important to the water supply of adjacent lowland regions which is largely determined by the effect of fog on TCMF evapotranspiration rates and hydrological balance. Understanding fog regimes at...
