Impact of unusual fatty acid synthesis on futile cycling through beta-oxidation and on gene expression in transgenic plants. (1/9)

Arabidopsis expressing the castor bean (Ricinus communis) oleate 12-hydroxylase or the Crepis palaestina linoleate 12-epoxygenase in developing seeds typically accumulate low levels of ricinoleic acid and vernolic acid, respectively. We have examined the presence of a futile cycle of fatty acid degradation in developing seeds using the synthesis of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) from the intermediates of the peroxisomal beta-oxidation cycle. Both the quantity and monomer composition of the PHA synthesized in transgenic plants expressing the 12-epoxygenase and 12-hydroxylase in developing seeds revealed the presence of a futile cycle of degradation of the corresponding unusual fatty acids, indicating a limitation in their stable integration into lipids. The expression profile of nearly 200 genes involved in fatty acid biosynthesis and degradation has been analyzed through microarray. No significant changes in gene expression have been detected as a consequence of the activity of the 12-epoxygenase or the 12-hydroxylase in developing siliques. Similar results have also been obtained for transgenic plants expressing the Cuphea lanceolata caproyl-acyl carrier protein thioesterase and accumulating high amounts of caproic acid. Only in developing siliques of the tag1 mutant, deficient in the accumulation of triacylglycerols and shown to have a substantial futile cycling of fatty acids toward beta-oxidation, have some changes in gene expression been detected, notably the induction of the isocitrate lyase gene. These results indicate that analysis of peroxisomal PHA is a better indicator of the flux of fatty acid through beta-oxidation than the expression profile of genes involved in lipid metabolism.  (+info)

Properties of two multifunctional plant fatty acid acetylenase/desaturase enzymes. (2/9)

The properties of the Delta6 desaturase/acetylenase from the moss Ceratodon purpureus and the Delta12 acetylenase from the dicot Crepis alpina were studied by expressing the encoding genes in Arabidopsis thaliana and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The acetylenase from C. alpinaDelta12 desaturated both oleate and linoleate with about equal efficiency. The desaturation of oleate gave rise to 9(Z),12(E)- and 9(Z),12(Z)-octadecadienoates in a ratio of approximately 3 : 1. Experiments using stereospecifically deuterated oleates showed that the pro-R hydrogen atoms were removed from C-12 and C-13 in the introduction of the 12(Z) double bond, whereas the pro-R and pro-S hydrogen atoms were removed from these carbons during the formation of the 12(E) double bond. The results suggested that the Delta12 acetylenase could accommodate oleate having either a cisoid or transoid conformation of the C(12)-C(13) single bond, and that these conformers served as precursors of the 12(Z) and 12(E) double bonds, respectively. However, only the 9(Z),12(Z)-octadecadienoate isomer could be further desaturated to 9(Z)-octadecen-12-ynoate (crepenynate) by the enzyme. The evolutionarily closely related Delta12 epoxygenase from Crepis palaestina had only weak desaturase activity but could also produce 9(Z),12(E)-octadecadienoate from oleate. The Delta6 acetylenase/desaturase from C. purpureus, on the other hand, produced only the 6(Z) isomers using C16 and C18 acyl groups possessing a Delta9 double bond as substrates. The Delta6 double bond was efficiently further converted to an acetylenic bond by a second round of desaturation but only if the acyl substrate had a Delta12 double bond and that this was in the Z configuration.  (+info)

Molecular evidence for transcription of genes on a B chromosome in Crepis capillaris. (3/9)

Dispensable, supernumerary (B) chromosomes are found in diverse eukaryotic species. The origin and genetic consequences of B chromosomes have been the subjects of speculation for more than a century. Until now, there has been no molecular evidence that B chromosome DNA is transcribed and there is no unequivocal evidence as to their origin. B chromosomes are considered to be genetically inert although they appear to cause a variety of phenotypic effects. We report that members of one of two ribosomal RNA gene families that are confined to the B chromosomes of a plant, Crepis capillaris, are transcribed--thus providing the first molecular evidence of gene activity on B chromosomes. Sequence analysis of part of the A and B chromosome rRNA genes, together with comparisons with related species, indicates that the B chromosome rRNA genes originate from the A chromosome.  (+info)

Cloning and transcriptional analysis of Crepis alpina fatty acid desaturases affecting the biosynthesis of crepenynic acid. (4/9)

Crepis alpina acetylenase is a variant FAD2 desaturase that catalyses the insertion of a triple bond at the Delta12 position of linoleic acid, forming crepenynic acid in developing seeds. Seeds contain a high level of crepenynic acid but other tissues contain none. Using reverse transcriptase-coupled PCR (RT-PCR), acetylenase transcripts were identified in non-seed C. alpina tissues, which were highest in flower heads. To understand why functional expression of the acetylenase is limited to seeds, genes that affect acetylenase activity by providing substrate (FAD2) or electrons (cytochrome b5), or that compete for substrate (FAD3), were cloned. RT-PCR analysis indicated that the availability of a preferred cytochrome b5 isoform is not a limiting factor. Developing seeds co-express acetylenase and FAD2 isoform 2 (FAD2-2) at high levels. Flower heads co-express FAD2-3 and FAD3 at high levels, and FAD2-2 and acetylenase at moderate levels. FAD2-3 was not expressed in developing seed. Real-time RT-PCR absolute transcript quantitation showed 10(4)-fold higher acetylenase expression in developing seeds than in flower heads. Collectively, the results show that both the acetylenase expression level and the co-expression of other desaturases may contribute to the tissue specificity of crepenynate production. Helianthus annuus contains a Delta12 acetylenase in a polyacetylene biosynthetic pathway, so does not accumulate crepenynate. Real-time RT-PCR analysis showed relatively strong acetylenase expression in young sunflowers. Acetylenase transcription is observed in both species without accumulation of the enzymatic product, crepenynate. Functional expression of acetylenase appears to be affected by competition and collaboration with other enzymes.  (+info)

Two asexual density-dependent population dynamics models with age-dependence and child care are presented. One of them includes the random diffusion while in the other the population is assumed to be non-dispersing. The population consists of the young (under maternal care), juvenile, and adult classes. Death moduli of the juvenile and adult classes in both models are decomposed into the sum of two terms. The first presents death rate by the natural causes while the other describes the environmental influence depending on the total density of the juvenile and adult individuals.

Islands are pieces of land that are surrounded by water. Some islands are the tops of mountains rising up from the bottom of the ocean. Others, called continental islands, were once connected to the mainland nearby. They became islands when, long ago, the ocean rose around them.. Some islands are still being formed today. In 1967 a volcano off the coast of Iceland suddenly bubbled up from under the sea. It spewed mounds of hot lava that cooled and hardened in the water to form a rocky island called Surtsey. Today Surtsey is a favorite resting site for birds and seals.. Who lives on islands? Some islands are nearly deserted-only insects and scrub plants live there, although migrating birds may stop for a rest as they fly across the ocean. Other islands, like Manhattan in New York, are bustling with people.. Continental islands have much of the same wildlife as the mainland they were once joined to. But what about islands far out to sea? Strong, oceangoing birds can fly to these faraway islands. ...
Improved methods of cementing in subterranean zones penetrated by well bores are provided. The methods are basically comprised of the steps of preparing a cement composition comprised of a hydraulic cement, a biodegradable, substantially non-dispersing set retarder of low anionic character comprised of polysuccinimide and sufficient water to form a slurry, placing said cement composition in said subterranean zone and allowing said cement composition to set into a solid mass therein.
3. Das Nusch-Nuschi. Paul Hindemith. Hindemiths 1920 burlesque puppet play was intended to provide a contrast to his two other one-act operas: Murder, Hope of Women (where one man ends up slaughtering the entire company) and Sancta Susanna (in which a sexually disturbed nun is frightened by an oversized spider). Das Nusch-Nuschi is a bawdy comedy about castration, with little dramatic logic but plenty of musical jollity. Hindemith himself dismissed one of its dances as having "no purpose but to provide experts with an opportunity to bark about the bad taste of their creator. Hallelujah! - It is essential that this piece be danced(or rather wobbled) by two eunuchs with incredibly fat and naked bellies.". So Whats the Plot?. Tum Tum, servant of Lord Zatwai, is tasked with procuring a woman from the emperors harem. As Zatwai is a bit of all right, four royal ladies declare that they are up for it. Suddenly a flying Nusch-Nuschi (half giant rat, half crocodile) appears. Stumbling over the ...
E-Book: This thorough and meticulous study, the result of nearly a quarter-century of research, examines the island biogeography of plants on continental islands in Barkley Sound, British Columbia. Invaluable both because of its geographical setting and because of the duration of the study, Plants on Islands summarizes the diversity, dynamics, and distribution of the approximately three hundred species of plants on more than two hundred islands.
The main objectives of the modeling are to understand how these parameters aggregate and to study their links at different spatial scales. As the landscape is described at each scale by its radiative parameters, general equations linking the radiative parameters at a given high spatial scale to those at a rough scale are proposed. Then these equations are applied to several synthetic landscapes. An analysis based on a design of experiments is conducted to point out the influence of each of the input factors. The results show the importance of the intrinsic parameters (reflectance, emissivity, and surface temperature) of each surface element and also the directional and spectral behaviors of the aggregated parameters.. © 2010 Optical Society of America.

Hagia Sophia (/ˈhɑːɡiə soʊˈfiːə/; from the Greek: Αγία Σοφία, pronounced [aˈʝia soˈfia], "Holy Wisdom"; Latin: Sancta Sophia or Sancta Sapientia; Turkish: Ayasofya) was a Greek Orthodox Christian patriarchal basilica (church), later an imperial mosque, and is now a museum (Ayasofya Müzesi) in Istanbul, Turkey. From the date of its construction in 537 AD, and until 1453, it served as an Eastern Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople,[1] except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted by the Fourth Crusaders to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire. The building was later converted into an Ottoman mosque from 29 May 1453 until 1931. It was then secularized and opened as a museum on 1 February 1935.[2] Famous in particular for its massive dome, it is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture[3] and is said to have "changed the history of architecture".[4] It remained the worlds largest cathedral for nearly a thousand years, until ...
The oxidation of well-defined FA derivatives has been studied with real-time IR (RTIR) and chemiluminescence (CL) techniques. Both methyl esters and model oils based on different FA have been studied to reveal the effect of functionality. The FA used were linoleic and crepenynic acid, the latter with an alkyne functionality. The purpose was to reveal how structural differences affect the oxidation and how this is monitored with CL and RTIR. Both model oils had longer oxidation induction times than the corresponding methyl esters, as seen by both IR and CL. Generally, the induction times measured with IR were shorter than those determined by CL, but the rate of oxidation did not seem to differ much between the model oils and the corresponding methyl esters. The results also imply that the higher functionality of the model oils gives a greater possibility of intramolecular addition reactions instead of chain scission during oxidation, making the model oi Is emit fewer low-M.W. volatiles than the ...

These data are statistical model outputs for narrow-leaved psorothamnus (Psorothamnus fremontii var attenuatus) species distribution, completed by Frank Davisâ Biogeography Lab at UC Santa Barbara. The UCSB Biogeography Lab used Maxent to generate predictions of habitat occupancy for ~70 species for the CA Energy Commissionâ s project â Cumulative Biological Impacts Framework for Solar Energy in the CA Desertâ , 500-10-021. Species distribution models were produced at 270 m resolution using a subset of 22 environmental variables. Models were evaluated with 10-foldcross validated AUC scores. Results are preliminary and have notyet been reviewed by expert biologists. Both continuous probability surfaces and binary layers are available for each species modeled. Binary layers depicting predicted suitable habitat were derived using the equal training sensitivity and specificity threshold. For Psorothamnus fremontii var attenuatus (broad extent), Max Sensitivity + Specificity threshold = 0.229; best
But just as God is attracted by certain kinds of behaviors, so he is repelled by others. And in the Priestly system, grave sins generate an impurity, now a moral impurity, so now were coming to the second kind of impurity, moral impurity that repels the divine presence. Okay? So moral impurity is the second kind of impurity thats described by Klawans and others. In contrast to ritual impurity, moral impurity does arise from the commission of sins. Ritual impurity does not: theres nothing thats prohibitive about - youre never told not to become ritually impure, okay? Theres nothing sinful about it, inherently. But moral impurity arises specifically from the commission of certain heinous sins specifically. The three that Ive listed here are the biggies: idolatry, homicide and sexual transgressions. These are spelled out in Leviticus 18 and Leviticus 20, those two chapters. Besides defiling the sinner, moral impurity symbolically defiles various sancta, especially the sanctuary, but also ...
But looking out on the surface from the plane revealed a chaotic surface of ridges called sastrugi that are shaped by the howling winds blowing over the surface. Yet features such as these can be described in a simple numeric that distills the visual chaos into something more understandable. This then allows comparisons between different measurements at different spatial scales and times. That is, a point measurement may by itself may convey little information, but brought together in the form of a number (for ICESat-2 this is in the form of a mean difference or bias) it can be compared to a greater whole.. However, numbers can be misleading if cherry-picked to support a particular position. The descent into hair-splitting sophistry and (at heart) overly-emotional polemics so prevalent in many public forums today is evidence of this at work. This leads me to my final question, can numbers alone convey the truth such that their meaning is appropriately acted upon? Or does the associated ability ...

The difference between continental and oceanic islands: The continental islands are bodies of land that lie on the continental shelf, and most of them are result of rift of the continent or entrance of seawater in it. Oceanic islands sit on the oceanic shelf and they are result of volcanic activity or bending of the plates during the tectonic movements. One of the key to understand the special biodiversity on islands is the origin of them. Having already or not fauna and flora at the formation of island is a deciding factor of the future biodiversity. For example, think about bird species in UK (continental islands) versus Hawaii (oceanic islands).We discuss about this in a next post, but keep these ideas on your head ...

The Haveri Au-Cu deposit is located in southern Finland about 175 km north of Helsinki. It occurs on the northern edge of the continental island arc-type, volcano-sedimentary Tampere Schist Belt (TSB) within the Palaeoproterozoic Svecofennian Domain (2.0 - 1.75 Ga) of the Fennoscandian Shield. The 1.99 Ga Haveri Formation forms the base of the supracrustal stratigraphy consisting of metavolcanic pillow lavas and breccias passing upwards into intercalated metatuffs and metatuffites. There is a continuous gradation upwards from the predominantly volcaniclastic Haveri Formation into the overlying epiclastic meta-greywackes of the Osara Formation. The Haveri deposit is hosted in this contact zone. This supracrustal sequence has been intruded concordantly by quartz-feldspar porphyries.. Approximately 1.89 Ga ago, high crustal heat flow led to the generation and emplacement of voluminous synkinematic, I-type, magnetite-series granitoids of the Central Finland Granitoid Complex (CFGC), resulting in ...
The aim of GRI is to explore the potential of linking existing research projects within RD2 that investigate similar research questions at different spatial scales. Given differences in the level of detail in driving input data and mechanisms represented in the models, GRI facilitates model intercomparison across scales to evaluate where and to what extent model projections differ. In case of disagreement, GRI seeks to identify reasons for disagreement in driving data and mechanisms implemented in the models. Findings of the cross-scale model intercomparison will be published and serve as a basis for fund raising. Topics for the global-regional integration of impact studies covered by GRI include modeling of hydrology, agriculture, urban climate and land-use dynamics.. Team members: ...
A process for repairing the annulus fibrosus, and replacing the nucleus pulposus. Removal of the nucleus pulposus and only as much of the annulus fibrosus and intervertebral disk as is necessary is performed. The tissue so removed is replaced by a material which is resilient, but non-dispersing upon setting. After application of the material, and after the material is set, the resiliency of the material permits motion of the vertebrae and performs the cushioning and joint functions of the intervertebral disk. The material is physiologically acceptable to the human body.
GREENLAND (Danish, &c., Gronland), a large continental island, the greater portion of which lies within the Arctic Circle, while the whole is arctic in character. It is not connected with any portion of Europe or America except by suboceanic ridges; but in the extreme north it is separated only by a narrow strait from Ellesmere Land in the archipelago of the American continent. It is bounded on the east by the North Atlantic, the Norwegian and Greenland Seas-Jan Mayen, Iceland, the Faeroe Islands and the Shetlands being the only lands between it and Norway. Denmark Strait is the sea between it and Iceland, and the northern Norwegian Sea or Greenland Sea separates it from Spitsbergen. On the west Davis Strait and Baffin Bay separate it from Baffin Land. The so-called bay narrows northward into the strait successively known as Smith Sound, Kane Basin, Kennedy Channel and Robeson Channel. A submarine ridge, about 300 fathoms deep at its deepest, unites Greenland with Iceland (across Denmark ...
OBJECTIVES: To survey the frequency of use of indirect comparisons in systematic reviews and evaluate the methods used in their analysis and interpretation. Also to identify alternative statistical approaches for the analysis of indirect comparisons, to assess the properties of different statistical methods used for performing indirect comparisons and to compare direct and indirect estimates of the same effects within reviews. DATA SOURCES: Electronic databases. REVIEW METHODS: The Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects (DARE) was searched for systematic reviews involving meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) that reported both direct and indirect comparisons, or indirect comparisons alone. A systematic review of MEDLINE and other databases was carried out to identify published methods for analysing indirect comparisons. Study designs were created using data from the International Stroke Trial. Random samples of patients receiving aspirin, heparin or placebo in 16 centres were used

Poster Number: ENE-01. Authors: Zachary Curtis, Shu-Guang Li, Hua-Sheng Liao, Hassan Abbas. Title: General Groundwater Flow Processes Underlying Michigan Fens - A Multi-Scale Data-Driven Modeling Study. Abstract: Fens are groundwater-dependent ecosystems that provide critical habitats to many rare plant and animal species, resulting in the investment of substantial resources for their protection. Our recent process-based modeling of the underlying groundwater systems at a few different sites demonstrates that fens receive groundwater from multiple groundwater source areas, including distant regional groundwater recharge areas. In this study, we applied data-driven groundwater modeling of a large, contiguous region of Lower Michigan with 150 fen occurrences to generalize the groundwater processes important to these critical habits. In particular, groundwater source areas were investigated by developing and applying steady-state mean groundwater flow models at different spatial scales (basin-wide, ...
Although it is widely assumed that the evolution of jaw kinesis in the ray-finned fishes was an innovation to enhance suction feeding performance, the lack of phylogenetic replication of this event across fishes has hindered direct tests of this hypothesis. Our results reveal that within the East African cichlid radiations, multiple transitions between biting and suction feeding have occurred, and that these functional transitions are accompanied by evolutionary reduction of jaw kinesis over short evolutionary timescales of 4 Myr or less (figure 3). These rapid and repeated shifts are consistent with the hypothesis that high jaw kinesis is selectively maintained in suction feeding fishes and provides evidence supporting upper jaw protrusion as a major evolutionary innovation for ray-finned fishes.. Our power to detect associations between jaw kinesis and transitions in feeding mode is directly connected to the sheer number of dietary transitions that have occurred in these cichlid radiations, ...
Long-term (21-30 years) erosional responses of rainforest terrain in the Upper Segama catchment, Sabah, to selective logging are assessed at slope, small and large catchment scales. In the 0.44 km2 Baru catchment, slope erosion measurements over 1990-2010 and sediment fingerprinting indicate that sediment sources 21 years after logging in 1989 are mainly road-linked, including fresh landslips and gullying of scars and toe deposits of 1994-1996 landslides. Analysis and modelling of 5-15 min stream-suspended sediment and discharge data demonstrate a reduction in stormsediment response between 1996 and 2009, but not yet to pre-logging levels. An unmixing model using bed-sediment geochemical data indicates that 49 per cent of the 216 t km-2 a-1 2009 sediment yield comes from 10 per cent of its area affected by road-linked landslides. Fallout 210Pb and 137Cs values from a lateral bench core indicate that sedimentation rates in the 721 km2 Upper Segama catchment less than doubled with initially highly ...
Taiwan is a continental island lying at the boundary between the Eurasian and the Philippine tectonic plates and possesses high biodiversity. Southern Taiwan, viz. Hengchun Peninsula, is notably floristically different from northern Taiwan. The floristic origin and relationships of the Hengchun Peninsula have been rarely investigated in a phylogenetic context. In this study, data from six plastid and nuclear sequences were used to reconstruct phylogenetic relationships within Burasaieae (Menispermaceae), which mainly inhabits tropical rainforests. The tree-based comparisons indicate that the position of Tinospora sensu stricto conflicts significantly between the cpDNA and ITS trees. However, alternative hypothesis tests from the ITS data did not reject the result of the cpDNA data, which suggests that tree-based comparisons might sometimes generate an artificial incongruence, especially when markers with high homoplasy are used. Based on the combined cpDNA and ITS data, we present an inter ...
An indirect estimate of the contractility index, max LV dP/dt/LVEDP, has been examined in 32 patients following acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and in three patients with acute coronary insufficiency (ACI). The index was derived from arterial diastolic pressure (DP) obtained by sphygmomanometer, left ventricular filling pressure (LVFP) obtained by pulmonary artery balloon catheter, and preejection period (PEP) determined from the phonocardiogram, carotid pulse, and ECG. These data were used in the relation (DP-LVFP)/PEP/LVFP (i.e., ΔP/Δt/LVFP) as an approximation of the direct contractility index max dP/dt/LVEDP. While measurements of PEP, DP, and LVFP used independently were not useful in distinguishing patients grouped in surviving AMI, nonsurviving AMI, and ACI categories, the ΔP/Δt/LVFP index showed marked separation of these groups. Because of the simplicity of measurement and minimal intravascular intervention, the index provides a safe and practical means of assessing the degree of ...
Papaya oil is used exceptionally for cosmetic purposes - for skin and hair care. It contains significant amounts of vitamins A, C and rich in potassium. The oil together with all parts of the plant contains unique enzyme papain that has special cleaving properties. Oil is perfectly absorbed into the skin, easily penetrates into cells and moisturizes and revitalizes the face. An unusual fatty acid composition in total has remarkable softening properties and absorbed by the skin without putting down greasy marks on it. Papain contributes to the dissolution of dead cells of the top layer of the epidermis, thus improving a look of the skin and giving a healthy color and beauty. Papain also decomposes odd sebum regulating excessive oiliness and cleaning the pores. Papaya oil has a bactericidal action and can be used as a disinfecting agent for small skin lesions. It is suitable for the treatment of normal and oily skin, acne and other diseases. Papaya juice has a unique property - it cleaves keratin ...

Data from the IPD meta-analysis suggest that more women are dissatisfied following first-generation EA than hysterectomy. However, it is important to note that dissatisfaction rates are low after all treatments and hysterectomy is associated with an increased hospital stay and recovery period. In the absence of head-to-head trials, indirect estimates suggest hysterectomy is also preferable to second-generation EA in terms of patient satisfaction. In terms of cost-effectiveness, hysterectomy is considered the best strategy, but it carries a higher risk of complications and is perceived as a final option by gynaecological experts and consumers. Dissatisfaction rates were comparable between first- and second-generation techniques, although second-generation techniques were cheaper, quicker and associated with a faster recovery and fewer complications. There are few comparisons of Mirena versus more invasive procedures. The few data available suggest that Mirena is potentially cheaper and more effective
Cytokines produced by immune cells infiltrating pancreatic islets are important mediators of β-cell destruction in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Cytokines stimulate an inducible form of nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) expression and nitric oxide (NO) production, leading to insulin insufficiency. In the present study, the effects of Artemisia capillaris extract (ACE) on cytokine-induced β-cell damage were examined. Treatment of RINm5F (RIN) rat insulinoma cells with interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and interferon-γ (IFN-γ) induced cell damage. ACE completely protected IL-1β and IFN-γ-mediated cytotoxicity in a concentration-dependent manner. Incubation with ACE resulted in a significant reduction in IL-1β and IFN-γ-induced NO production, a finding that correlated well with reduced levels of the iNOS mRNA and protein. The molecular mechanism by which ACE inhibited iNOS gene expression appeared to involve the inhibition of NF-κB activation. The IL-1β and IFN-γ-stimulated RIN cells showed ...
Abstract: Aerosols directly and indirectly influence the surface energy balance and therefore have an important impact on weather and climate. The indirect effects of aerosols, associated with changes in cloud properties and lifetimes, remain poorly understood. Likewise, there are many uncertainties associated with aerosol-precipitation interactions, particularly in mountain regions where a variety of processes at different spatial scales influence precipitation patterns. Aerosol-precipitation linkages were examined in the southern Appalachian Mountains, guided by the following research questions: 1) How do aerosol properties observed during precipitation events vary by season (e.g., summer vs. winter) and synoptic event type (e.g., frontal vs. orographic); 2) how do they compare between summer (June, July, August) 2009 and 2010, and 3) what influence does air mass source region have on aerosol properties? Precipitation events were identified based on data from the Boone Automated Weather ...

Microclimatic gradients may have large influence on individual vital rates and population growth rates of species, and limit their distributions. Therefore, I focused on the influence of microclimate on individual performance and distribution of species. Further, I examined differences in how microclimate affect species with contrasting distributions or different ecophysiological traits, and populations within species. More specifically, I investigated the performance of northern and southern distributed forest bryophytes that were transplanted across microclimatic gradients, and the timing of vegetative and reproductive development among northern, marginal and more southern populations of a forest herb in a common garden. Also, I compared the landscape and continental distributions across forest bryophytes and vascular plants and, thus, their distribution limiting factors at different spatial scales. Lastly, I examined the population dynamics across microclimatic gradients of transplants from ...

Accurate estimation of terrestrial gross primary productivity (GPP) remains a challenge despite its importance in the global carbon cycle. Chlorophyll fluorescence (ChlF) has been recently adopted to understand photosynthesis and its response to the environment, particularly with remote sensing data. However, it remains unclear how ChlF and photosynthesis are linked at different spatial scales across the growing season. We examined seasonal relationships between ChlF and photosynthesis at the leaf, canopy, and ecosystem scales and explored how leaf-level ChlF was linked with canopy-scale solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (SIF) in a temperate deciduous forest at Harvard Forest, Massachusetts, USA. Our results show that ChlF captured the seasonal variations of photosynthesis with significant linear relationships between ChlF and photosynthesis across the growing season over different spatial scales (R2 = 0.73, 0.77, and 0.86 at leaf, canopy, and satellite scales, respectively; P , 0.0001). We ...
Aim: It is widely acknowledged that species distributions result from a variety of biotic and abiotic factors operating at different spatial scales. Here, we aimed to (1) determine the extent to which global climate niche models (CNMs) can be improved by the addition of fine-scale regional data; (2) examine climatic and environmental factors influencing the range of 15 invasive aquatic plant species; and (3) provide a case study for the use of such models in invasion management on an island. Location: Global, with a case study of species invasions in Ireland. Methods: Climate niche models of global extent (including climate only) and regional environmental niche models (with additional factors such as human influence, land use and soil characteristics) were generated using maxent for 15 invasive aquatic plants. The performance of these models within the invaded range of the study species in Ireland was assessed, and potential hotspots of invasion suitability were determined. Models were ...
