Charles Darwin first proposed that the Venus flytrap (Dionaea muscipula Ellis) functions optimally by capturing and digesting large prey, the small prey escaping through openings at the trap margins. This hypothesis, although intuitively sound in the context of trap mechanics or plant allocation theory, has not been tested adequately with ...

Cells of the green alga Chlorella kessleri Fott et Novakova use a reductive mechanism for iron acquisition. Iron-limited cells acquired iron more rapidly from a chelator with a lower stability constant for [Fe.sup.3+] (hydroxyethylethylenediaminetriacetic acid (HEDTA)) than from a chelator with a higher stability constant (N,N'-di[2-hydroxybenzyl)ethylenediamine-N,N'- diacetic acid (HBED)). Furthermore, ...

Limited information is available on the effect of salinity on plant architecture; not only on final plant height, number of leaves, and leaf area, but also on plant growth and development from the leaflet to the whole plant scale. Tomato plants (Solanum lycopersicum L. 'Marmara') were grown in greenhouses at ...
Ambebe, Titus - - 2009
Abstract: To investigate the interactive effects of soil temperature ([T.sub.soil]) and nutrient supply on the responses of growth and biomass of white birch (Betula papyrifera Marsh.) to atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration ([C[O.sub.2]]), seedlings were grown under two [C[O.sub.2]] (360 and 720 [micro]mol x [mol.sup.-1]), three [T.sub.soil] (5, 15, and 25[degrees]C ...

Abstract: Expressed sequence tag--polymerase chain reaction (EST-PCR) molecular markers were used to infer spatial genetic structure of four lowbush blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium Ait.) fields in Maine. Genetic structure was quantified at three spatial scales: (1) within apparent clones (intrapatch), (2) among clones within a field, and (3) among fields separated ...

Abstract: Sequence data from the nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region and plastid gene ndhF of 95 species, represented by 147 accessions, were used to determine the tribal limits, monophyly status, and phylogenetic intratribal relationships of genera within the New World tribe Schizopetaleae (formerly Thelypodieae; Brassicaceae). Maximum parsimony, Bayesian, ...
