  • This is a very nice gift for anyone who cares about plant biology! (bio.net)
  • This essay and the series that follow is intended to help us as professionals in plant biology to listen to them and examine our own beliefs, values, and morals and then reconsider our choices from this new, more well-rounded perspective. (plantphysiol.org)
  • Recent advances highlight understanding of the diversity of peroxisome contributions to plant biology and the mechanisms through which these essential organelles are generated. (plantphysiol.org)

  • Stress
  • Stress from water loss, changes in air chemistry, or crowding by other plants can lead to changes in the way a plant functions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Therefore, a better understanding of the response of plants to heat stress is essential for improving their heat tolerance. (plantphysiol.org)
  • P 50 values, i.e. the sap pressures inducing 50% loss of hydraulic conductivity, are considered to be good proxies for drought stress tolerance in woody plants and have been published for hundreds of angiosperm and gymnosperm tree species. (plantphysiol.org)
  • biotechnology
  • The discoverers of new technologies, the gene cloners, the lawmakers who support farm subsidies, the plant breeders, the pesticide manufacturers, the organic farmers, and the globalization or protesters against agricultural biotechnology generally are unwilling to accept criticism for their actions, for all "know" that they have made the correct choice. (plantphysiol.org)
  • dormancy
  • At the largest scale are the processes of plant development , seasonality , dormancy , and reproductive control. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other compounds defend plants against disease, permit survival during drought, and prepare plants for dormancy, while other compounds are used to attract pollinators or herbivores to spread ripe seeds. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ultimately, the function of these varied dormancy mechanisms is to enable the seed time to disperse from the parent plant and to avoid germinating during unfavorable weather. (csbsju.edu)
  • Humans have attempted to breed dormancy mechanisms from our crop plants. (csbsju.edu)
  • Although an advantage for a wild plant, dormancy is a problem if a farmer who want the crop to germinate uniformly and immediately upon planting. (csbsju.edu)
  • Issue
  • A citation analysis of the literature confirms the general theme of this Special Issue: The cereal plants are, in their own right, an experimental model system of great merit. (plantphysiol.org)
  • Two articles in this issue shed light on various facets of long-distance mRNA transport in plants. (plantphysiol.org)
  • ultimately
  • Baby' refers to the embryo, or immature plant, that will grow and develop into the seedling and ultimately the mature plant. (csbsju.edu)
  • The purpose of this lab exercise is to make some predictions concerning trends in the evolution of leaf shape, which are ultimately determined by the physiology of the plant. (csbsju.edu)
  • Since plants are stationary they must respond developmentally, and ultimately evolutionarily, to their environment. (csbsju.edu)
  • physiologists
  • Plants have developed a number of ways to achieve this transport, such as vascular tissue , and the functioning of the various modes of transport is studied by plant physiologists. (wikipedia.org)
  • translocation
  • The long-distance trafficking of mobile mRNAs in grafted plants consists of multiple translocation steps, including intracellular trafficking of mobile mRNAs from the nucleus to cytosol, cell-to-cell movement in mesophyll cells and the companion cell/sieve element complex, translocation through phloem, and unloading into and cell-to-cell movement in the destination tissues. (plantphysiol.org)
  • manuscripts
  • While Reviews and Perspectives papers are usually invited by an editor, we also welcome proposals for such manuscripts on topics of high current interest to the physiology community. (elsevier.com)
  • cellular

  • Australian
  • This course uses a general teaching approach to provide an understanding of the physiological adaptations of Australian plants and the ecological circumstances in which they have developed. (edu.au)
  • nutrients
  • Plant cells also contain chlorophyll , a chemical compound that interacts with light in a way that enables plants to manufacture their own nutrients rather than consuming other living things as animals do. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vascular plants are the only organisms that transport water and nutrients using negative pressure. (plantphysiol.org)
  • rice plants
  • foolish seedling' disease (bakanae) - rice plants tall, weak and spindly with little grain - was observed early this century by Japanese farmers. (csbsju.edu)
  • Fifty transgenic rice plants carrying the cloned Xa21 gene displayed high levels of resistance to the pathogen. (plantphysiol.org)
  • functional
  • The functional organization of the plant nuclear pore, nuclear envelope, and nucleoplasm marks dynamically changing environmental cues and developmental programs. (plantphysiol.org)
  • crop
  • 3rd International Plant Physiology Congress (IPPCongress-2015) was planned to address the challenging issues concerning the crop productivity. (springer.com)
  • A ground-based platform enables high-throughput, image-based data and analysis to characterize plant architecture of a tall biomass crop species. (plantphysiol.org)
  • One of the drawbacks of our current preoccupation with model organisms and our inveterate focus on crop plants is that our natural curiosities about some of the more bizarre plants in the world go largely unsatisfied. (plantphysiol.org)
  • Because cereal grains account for more than one-half of all agricultural crop production, they have always been at the forefront of applied and basic plant research. (plantphysiol.org)
  • mechanisms
  • For instance, studies on agricultural plants that show new physiological mechanisms to improve agricultural efficiency are welcome. (elsevier.com)
  • However, there remains a paucity of information regarding the mechanisms of laticifer cell differentiation, their precise ontogenic origin, and the organization of the laticifer system within the plant body. (plantphysiol.org)
