AbstractFull Text

Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) increase soil organic carbon (SOC) deposition via secretion of glomalin-related soil protein (GRSP) and modulation of plant carbon partition. Two exogenous AMF inocula (Rhizophagus irregularis and Glomus versiforme) were applied to the roots of Populus × ...

AbstractFull Text

Interspecific crosses play an important role in gene introgression, plant improvement and speciation. However, poor fertility of F1 plants was commonly found, which hampered backcrossing and ideal progeny generation. To explore useful materials for further breeding programs, sterile hybrids (DD1,...

Ipomoea sect. Batatas (Choisy) Grisebach is comprised of 11 species mainly distributed in North and South America. Among them, 5 species have been recorded in Taiwan. A few years ago, an unrecognized taxon of Ipomoea was found during our field investigations in central Taiwan. After consulting the...

AbstractFull Text

Birds and bats are important insect predators. Herbivorous insects have negative effects on tree growth, and thus the health of trees may benefit from foraging by vertebrate insectivores on herbivorous insects. An exclosure experiment was used to examine the top-down effects of birds and bats on...

AbstractFull Text

Relationships between microhabitats and vegetation structure were examined in a 1-ha plot established in an evergreen broadleaf forest at Mt. Peitungyen, central Taiwan. Parameters of various growth types (trees, shrubs, and herbs) were recorded. The elevation, irradiance, soil organic matter, soil ...
