Plant root systems and associated symbiotic organisms act as critical links between the growing shoot and the rhizosphere, providing both vital nutrients and water to sustain growth. Many tools have been developed to study plant root systems; however, the efficient quantification of root traits remains a key bottleneck to effectively utilizing expanding collections of genomic and germplasm resources during the study of root system development and function. This dissertation presents results from root system phenotyping research where root phenotyping platforms were developed and used to investigate the genetic components of root system architecture and development in crop plants. It begins with a review chapter that discusses the importance of root system architecture (RSA) during resource acquisition and provides an overview of established root growth and measurement techniques while highlighting modern root phenotyping approaches that have been developed for genetic mapping studies. ...
ROOT HAIR DEFECTIVE SIX-LIKE4 (RSL4) is necessary and sufficient for root hair elongation in Arabidopsis thaliana. Root hair length is determined by the duration for which RSL4 protein is present in the developing root hair. The aim of this research was to identify genes regulated by RSL4 that affect root hair growth. To identify genes regulated by RSL4, we identified genes whose expression was elevated by induction of RSL4 activity in the presence of an inhibitor of translation. Thirty-four genes were identified as putative targets of RSL transcriptional regulation, and the results suggest that the activities of SUPPRESSOR OF ACTIN (SAC1), EXOCSYT SUBUNIT 70A1 (EXO70A1), PEROXIDASE7 (PRX7) and CALCIUM-DEPENDENT PROTEIN KINASE11 (CPK11) are required for root hair elongation. These data indicate that RSL4 controls cell growth by controlling the expression of genes encoding proteins involved in cell signalling, cell wall modification and secretion.
When entering the differentiation zone, the elongating root cells that are programmed to become trichoblasts drastically add a new growth pattern to allow the highly localized emergence of root hairs. The initiation of a root hair is characterized on the level of gene expression patterns (for review, see Schiefelbein, 2000). On the level of cell physiology, specific enzymes or proteins need to restructure a defined spot of the apical outer periclinal cell wall to allow local wall loosening and bulging. At the time of root hair initiation, inside the cytoplasm actin and microtubules rearrange (Emons and Derksen, 1986; Baluška et al., 2000a, 2000b). A highly localized acidification (pH 4.5) of the cell wall is associated with the initiation process (Bibikova et al., 1998). Once the initiation is completed, the wall pH returns to the pH (approximately 6) found in the rest of the trichoblast. Besides pH changes, other factors are likely to be important to predict the future site of root hair ...
We found both altered root epidermis specification and cortex cell fate in the hda19 mutant. Based on the results of additional cortex cell divisions (Fig. 1, A and B), the disappearance of the cortex marker CO2pro:NLS-YFP signal, and altered expression level of cortex-specific gene expression in hda19 (Fig. 3, A-F), we conclude that HDA19 affects root cortex cell fate. Our results indicate that the abnormality of epidermal cell patterning is derived from abnormal cortex differentiation. In particular, no direct link was found between HDA19 and multiple epidermal pattern genes (Supplemental Figs. S2 and S3), and a ground tissue-specific promoter driving HDA19 was able to fully rescue the epidermal phenotype (Fig. 3, K-N). This supports the hypothesis that positional information originating in the cortex plays a role in determining epidermal cell fate in the Arabidopsis root.. HDA19 acts through interaction with SCR and by directly binding SCR target genes. Interaction between HDA19 and SCR is ...
Limitation of immobile nutrients, such as iron (Fe) and phosphate (P), induces the development of additional root hairs that lead to an increase of the absorptive surface of the root. The increased root hair frequency of Fe- and P-deficient Arabidopsis was realized by different strategies. Phosphate-deficient plants increased the number of root hairs while in Festarved plants root hairs were branched. The Fe and P starvation responses in plants are thought to be regulated by a systemic signaling mechanism that communicates the nutrient status of the shoot to the root and by a local signaling mechanism that perceives the Fe or P availability in the soil. The influence of local and systemic signals on the respective root hair phenotype was investigated in split-root experiments. This treatment was combined with either a nutrient-sufficient or -deficient shoot. The root hair branching typical of Fe-deficient plants only occured in the presence of both a local and a systemic Fe-deficiency signal. As ...
In Arabidopsis, lateral root formation is a post-embryonic developmental event, which is regulated by hormones and environmental signals. In this study, via analyzing the expression of cyclin genes during lateral root (LR) formation, we report that cytokinins (CTKs) inhibit the initiation of LR through blocking the pericycle founder cells cycling at the G2 to M transition phase, while the promotion by CTK of LR elongation is due to the stimulation of the G1 to S transition. No significant difference was detected in the inhibitory effect of CTK on LR formation between wild-type plants and mutants defective in auxin response or transport. In addition, exogenously applied auxin at different concentrations could not rescue the CTK-mediated inhibition of LR initiation. Our data suggest that CTK and auxin might control LR initiation through two separate signaling pathways in Arabidopsis. The CTK-mediated repression of LR initiation is transmitted through the two-component signal system and mediated by ...
Image: A Simplified Model for Jasmonate-Stimulated Root Hair Development in Arabidopsis. (Image by HAN Xiao) They also discovered that the endogenous CORONATINE-INSENSITIVE1 (COI1) and JASMONATE ZIM ZIM-DOMAIN (JAZ) -mediated jasmonate signaling pathway is critical for root hair development. The disruption of the COI1 receptor or accumulation of a JAZ repressor (e.g. JAZ4 or JAZ8) decreased root hair length. Further investigation showed that several JAZ repressors interactedwithRHD6 and RSL1, two bHLH transcription factors crucial for root hair development. JAZ proteins repressed the transcriptional function of RHD6 and interfered with the interaction between RHD6 and RSL1. Phenotypic analysis showed that jasmonate promoted root hair growth in a manner dependent on RHD6and RSL1. It also showed that overexpressing RHD6 largely rescued the root hair-defective phenotypes of coi1-2 and JAZ8-ΔJas-9 plants. "Our study provides a mechanistic understanding of how JAZ repressors directly regulate ...
Visual examination of roots from 12,000 mutagenized Arabidopsis seedlings has led to the identification of more than 40 mutants impaired in root hair morphogenesis. Mutants from four phenotypic classes have been characterized in detail, and genetic tests show that these result from single nuclear recessive mutations in four different genes designated RHD1, RHD2, RHD3, and RHD4. The phenotypic analysis of the mutants and homozygous double mutants has led to a proposed model for root hair development and the stages at which the genes are normally required. The RHD1 gene product appears to be necessary for proper initiation of root hairs, whereas the RHD2, RHD3, and RHD4 gene products are required for normal hair elongation. These results demonstrate that root hair development in Arabidopsis is amenable to genetic dissection and should prove to be a useful model system to study the molecular mechanisms governing cell differentiation in plants.. ...
The root epidermis is involved in nutrition and defense against pathogens. This tissue is composed of only two cell types. These cell types can be distinguished from the differentiation zone where trichoblast cells are producing root hairs and atrichoblasts are remaining non-hair cells. Root hairs are thought to be important in water and nutrient uptake. The differentiation of trichoblast involve positional information from the cortex.. ...
A balanced supply of essential nutrients is an important factor influencing root architecture in many plants, yet data related to the interactive effects of two nutrients on root growth are limited. Here, we investigated the interactive effect between phosphorus (P) and magnesium (Mg) on root growth of Arabidopsis grown in pH-buffered agar medium at different P and Mg levels. The results showed that elongation and deviation of primary roots were directly correlated with the amount of P added to the medium but could be modified by the Mg level, which was related to the root meristem activity and stem-cell division. High P enhanced while low P decreased the tip-focused fluorescence signal of auxin biosynthesis, transport, and redistribution during elongation of primary roots; these effects were greater under low Mg than under high Mg. The altered root growth in response to P and Mg supply was correlated with AUX1, PIN2, and PIN3 mRNA abundance and expression and the accumulation of the protein. ...
Author summary Plants thrive in highly heterogenous soils. How they compute a multitude of contrasting stimuli and mount an adaptive response without a centralized information processing unit is an intriguing question. For instance, below ground, roots can sense and respond to the single or multiple nutrient stresses, and adjust its growth rate accordingly. Nevertheless, the genetic architecture of root growth responses under single and combined stress remains poorly understood. To fill this gap in our understanding about such crucial phenomenon for plant survival, we explored the natural variation of root growth rate (RGR) in Arabidopsis grown under single and combined nutritional stress, including deficiencies of iron (-Fe), zinc (-Zn), phosphate and iron (-P-Fe) and phosphate and zinc (-P-Zn). Our GWAS revealed distinct genetic architectures underlying root growth responses to single or combined nutrient stresses. By integrating GWAS and coexpression networks, we identified and validated genes
During the post-embryonic development of plants, new axes of growth emerge through lateral or adventitious organogenesis, and the reiteration of this process builds up the complex pattern of a plant body. Regulation of such lateral or adventitious organogenesis provides a flexible way for plants to alter their form and resource allocation in response to environmental changes or after injury. In this context, lateral or adventitious organogenesis plays an essential role in the post-embryonic development and survival of plants.. Among the processes of lateral and adventitious organogeneses, lateral root formation has been extensively studied by various approaches using the model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana. Lateral root formation is considered to consist of two distinct phases: lateral root initiation and the establishment of the root apical meristem (Laskowski et al., 1995; Celenza et al., 1995). The histology of both these phases have been described in detail (Malamy and Benfey, 1997). During ...
Non‐destructive methods to quantify the root system architecture of a plant grown in soil are essential to aid our understanding of the factors that impact plant root development in natural environments
Methylation of lysine 4 in histone 3 (H3K4) is a post-translational modification that promotes gene expression. H3K4 methylation can be reversed by specific demethylases with an enzymatic Jumonji C domain. In Arabidopsis thaliana, H3K4-specific JUMONJI (JMJ) proteins distinguish themselves by the association with an F/Y-rich (FYR) domain. Here, we report that jmj14 mutations partially suppress reduced root meristem size and growth vigor of brevis radix (brx) mutants. Similar to its close homologs, JMJ15, JMJ16 and JMJ18, the JMJ14 promoter confers expression in mature root vasculature. Yet, unlike jmj14, neither jmj16 nor jmj18 mutation markedly suppresses brx phenotypes. Domain-swapping experiments suggest that the specificity of JMJ14 function resides in the FYR domain. Despite JMJ14 promoter activity in the mature vasculature, jmj14 mutation affects root meristem size. However, JMJ14 protein is observed throughout the meristem, suggesting that the JMJ14 transcript region contributes ...
Maize (Zea mays) is not only a key human food and animal feed crop throughout the world but also an important raw material for the food industry and energy production plants [1]. Low phosphate concentrations are frequently a constraint for maize growth and development, and therefore, enormous quantities of phosphate fertilizer are expended in maize cultivation, which increases the cost of planting. Although the total amount of phosphorus (P) in the soil may be high, plants mainly absorb P in the inorganic form (Pi), which is present at a low concentration, limiting plant growth and development [2].. Phosphorus is an essential macronutrient for all living organisms and plays important roles in energy metabolism; biosynthesis of nucleic acids, phospholipids and membranes; cellular signal transduction and the regulation of many enzymes [3, 4]. Plants have evolved two broad strategies to cope with phosphate starvation, which involve changes in physiology, biochemistry and root morphology that ...
Taproots develop from the radicle of a seed, forming the primary root. It branches off to secondary roots, which in turn branch to form tertiary roots. These may further branch to form rootlets. For most plants species the radicle dies some time after seed germination, causing the development of a fibrous root system, which lacks a main downward-growing root. Most trees begin life with a taproot,[3] but after one to a few years the main root system changes to a wide-spreading fibrous root system with mainly horizontal-growing surface roots and only a few vertical, deep-anchoring roots. A typical mature tree 30-50 m tall has a root system that extends horizontally in all directions as far as the tree is tall or more, but as much as 100% of the roots are in the top 50 cm of soil. Soil characteristics strongly influence the architecture of taproots; for example, deep rich soils favour the development of vertical taproots in many oak species such as Quercus kelloggii, while clay soils promote the ...
Soil nutrients are essential for plant growth and metabolism. Plant roots acquire nutrients from soils and have developed adaptive mechanisms to ensure nutrient acquisition under the varying nutritional conditions in soil. When plants are deprived of nutrients such as potassium, roots activate two important adaptive mechanisms for the uptake of nutrients that help support growth and survival. One adaptation involves deploying additional nutrient acquisition and remobilization systems, such as transporters (Ashley et al., 2006; Gierth and Maser, 2007) or channels (Lebaudy et al., 2007). The other adaptation involves changes in developmental processes of roots, including primary root growth, lateral root formation, and root hair elongation (Lopez-Bucio et al., 2003). Architectural changes in root systems, in response to nutrition deprivation, help plants to take up more nutrients by increasing the absorptive surface in specific regions of the soil.. Plants require potassium in large quantities for ...
FERONIA (FER) is a receptor-like kinase (RLK) involved in a large number of processes in Arabidopsis. FER plays a role in cell elongation, mechanosensing, regulation of seed size, immunity and root hair development. A common theme in many of these processes is the involvement of FER as a regulator of location-specific growth (often called polar growth) and consistent with this observation FER is also known to interact with proteins that regulate the cytoskeleton (called Rho of plants, ROPs). The peptide, Rapid- Alkalinisation Factor 1 (RALF1), has been shown to elicit FER dependent signalling. Focusing within root tissue and using RALF1, we seek to explore early signalling events upon FER elicitation and clarify the interaction between FER and ROPs, using co-immunoprecipitation (CoIP) and mass spectrometry (MS). We have identified potential FER interactors, including Receptor for Activated C kinase 1B (RACK1B) and have identified two proteins, CAND1 and ILITYHIA, which are common between FER, ...
Soil pollutants may affect root growth through interactions among phytohormones like auxin and jasmonates. Rice is frequently grown in paddy fields contaminated by cadmium and arsenic, but the effects of these pollutants on jasmonates/auxin crosstalk during adventitious and lateral roots formation are widely unknown. Therefore, seedlings of Oryza sativa cv. Nihonmasari and of the jasmonate-biosynthetic mutant coleoptile photomorphogenesis2 were exposed to cadmium and/or arsenic, and/or jasmonic acid methyl ester, and then analysed through morphological, histochemical, biochemical and molecular approaches.In both genotypes, arsenic and cadmium accumulated in roots more than shoots. In the roots, arsenic levels were more than twice higher than cadmium levels, either when arsenic was applied alone, or combined with cadmium. Pollutants reduced lateral root density in the wild -type in every treatment condition, but jasmonic acid methyl ester increased it when combined with each pollutant. ...

The geometrical and topological structure of a plants root system is crucial for the success of soil exploration and for the survival of the individual. For this reason, the genetic control of root development is under enormous selection pressure at various scales, from tissue patterning at the cellular level, to the 3D branching pattern of the entire below-ground root system, which can be more extensive than the above-ground shoot system. Root apical meristems (RAMs) produce cells that will form the root system. A group of seldom-dividing cells in the root apex, known as the quiescent center (QC), is crucial for RAM activity. The cells adjacent to the QC, initial cells/stem cells, divide asymmetrically to produce two cell populations, one for self-renewal and another population that will undergo transient amplification within the RAM, or meristematic zone, and later will be displaced into the elongation zone. After anisotropic expansion, cells that reached their final size leave the elongation zone.
We describe a novel robotic facility that makes it possible to conduct high-content, miniaturized screens for the effects of small molecules on both root and shoot development in a 96-well microtitre plate format. At the heart of this automated platform is a novel seedling growth device, the Phytostrip, which has been specifically designed to allow detailed analysis of the effects of chemical treatments on root system architecture. Roots are a particularly attractive subject for phenotyping studies because of the large number of individual traits that can be readily visualised (Fig. 4) and the extent to which each of these traits is responsive to environmental factors [30, 50]. Many previous investigations into the genetic control of plant responses to abiotic and biotic stresses have focussed on root development [51, 52] and powerful robotic and imaging technologies have been developed to streamline the quantitative analysis of root growth and architecture of soil-grown roots [53, 54, 55]. ...

Root hairs, tubular structures that emerge from plant root epidermal cells, grow through localized exocytosis of cell-wall matrix, a process involving actin-dependent delivery of Golgi-derived vesicles containing matrix material to the growing tip. Researchers have long recognized that the cell nucleus maintains a fixed distance from the apex of the growing root hair. The mechanisms by which the nucleus maintains this position, however, and how it pertains to tip growth, remain unclear. Ketelaar et al. used time-lapse photography of Arabidopsis root hair tips to investigate nuclear behavior during root hair growth and did pharmacological analysis to implicate the actin cytoskeleton in nuclear localization. During active growth, the nucleus maintained a fixed distance from the tip, moving backwards when growth ceased to a random position in the root hair. In mutants with branched hairs, branches emerged from the site at which the nucleus was located; thereafter, nuclei moved between growing ...
The chemical interaction between plants and bacteria in the root zone can lead to soil decontamination. Bacteria which degrade PAHs have been isolated from the rhizospheres of plant species with varied biological traits, however, it is not known what phytochemicals promote contaminant degradation. One monocot and two dicotyledon plants were grown in PAH-contaminated soil from a manufactured gas plant (MGP) site. A phytotoxicity assay confirmed greater soil decontamination in rhizospheres when compared to bulk soil controls. Bacteria were isolated from plant roots (rhizobacteria) and selected for growth on anthracene and chrysene on PAH-amended plates. Rhizosphere isolates metabolized 3- and 4-ring PAHs and PAH catabolic intermediates in liquid incubations. Aromatic root exudate compounds, namely flavonoids and simple phenols, were also substrates for isolated rhizobacteria. In particular, the phenolic compounds - morin, caffeic acid, and protocatechuic acid - appear to be linked to bacterial ...
The second part of this work has explored the role of tissue geometry in determining root phosphate levels and flux. Multi-cellular vertex-based models of published Arabidopsis and rice root cross-sections were produced using CellSeT, into which equations for phosphate uptake, flux and utilistion were embedded using OpenAlea. Simulations suggest that Arabidopsis trichoblasts have lower cytosolic phosphate levels than neighbouring epidermal cells, because they have a larger area through which phosphate flows into the inner tissues. This implies that trichoblasts are more sensitive to phosphate stress and reduced phosphate levels could therefore be part of the trigger for initiating root-hair growth. Adding root hairs of varying lengths into this geometry shows that a hair does not have to grow much before the phosphate levels in this trichoblast exceeds those in the neighbouring cells and that phosphate flows to them. This potentially suppresses root-hair formation in nearby trichoblasts. The ...
Although we dont typically see them, roots are perhaps the most expansive part of a plant. Not only do they account for as much as a third of the plants mass, but they spread both deep and wide. For instance, if all the branching segments of a rye plants root system were cut and arranged into a straight line, it would extend about 380 miles. The plant invests a lot of resources into developing such intricate root systems, and this is because the roots are the plants sole source of minerals and water, which it leaches directly from the ground. At the same time, the root system stabilizes the plant so that it cannot be easily blown over by winds. This is a problem for some trees, which might have an extensive but shallow root system. If the roots dont dig deeply enough, then not only will they lack access to the water table, theyll also risk getting uprooted in a storm, killing themselves and damaging anything crushed by their descent.. ...
This is simply the whole root version of Ashwahanda. Whole roots preserve more of the volatile oils, but require more time to steep. Usually, a big spoonful is stirred into the liquid of your choice with a pinch of honey and cinnamon, but with the Whole Root, you can put several roots into boiling water, bring to a simmer, and steep for several hours for full effects. You can also put 1 oz at a time into a pot of water, and let it steep all day. Then, you can simply re-heat as you need it throuhgout the day ...
Researchers have just documented how plants use underground fungal networks to warn neighboring plants of impending insect attack, uniquely illustrating the complex and highly designed interconnected cooperation found in nature.. The research study-just published in the July, 2013 issue of Ecology Letters-is the first such report that confirms and reveals how plants have uniquely co-designed physiologies that internetwork with other plants using an underground fungus as an information conduit.1 This amazing and intricate system allows the plants to readily and effectively communicate as a community, like a natural biological internet.. Prior to this study, scientists were aware that mutually beneficial relationships existed between plants and certain fungi that colonize the soil surrounding the plants root systems. These beneficial soil microorganisms are called mycorrhizal fungi and are known to promote overall plant growth and help them cope with insect attacks, pathogens, and drought ...
The decade since the publication of the third edition of this volume has been an era of great progress in biology in general and the plant sciences in particular. This is especially true with the advancements brought on by the sequencing of whole genomes of model organisms and the development of omics techniques. This fourth edition of Plant Roots: The Hidden Half reflects these developments that have transformed not only the field of biology, but also the many facets of root science. Highlights of this new edition include: The basics of root research and their evolution and role in the global context of soil development and atmosphere composition New understandings about roots gained in the post-genomic era, for example, how the development of roots became possible, and the genetic basis required for this to occur The mechanisms that determine root structure, with chapters on cellular patterning, lateral root and vascular development, the molecular basis of adventitious roots, and other topics

Nitrogen is the nutrient that may be fixed in plant roots. What happens is the presence, but unavailability, of nitrogen in the environment. In the case of the ground below surface level, nitrogen must be in soluble form in order to be used by the plant. Nitrogen fixing bacteria and nematodes may do this job on, in or around plant roots.

Curry played by actor Michael David Simms might look familiar to horror fans as one of those actors who has appeared in several horror films over the years. He leads the team as they all search the fields for the stolen loot. The camera keeps panning onto a particular set of scarecrows who we believe to be residual from the former residents. They stay unmoved, while of them suspiciously is always seen slightly breathing. The mood here is one of the best Ive seen in horror for setting a strikingly appropriate atmosphere. This also provides the scarecrows a gloomy backdrop to lurk about and kill off its unlucky victims. The lighting in the film was always presented as a moonlit cast.. "Scarecrows" always keeps a sense of the supernatural per way of walking straw-filled bodies, zombies and ghostly voiceover radio broadcasts. The intent here is to play mind games with the crew in addition to actually coming to life. The climax of Scarecrows reveals one bad-ass scary smiling scarecrow corpse that ...

Bare-root plants are available during the dormant season, usually beginning in January to March, depending on where you live. Once the weather warms up they begin growing, and must be planted quickly. To keep the roots from drying out, nurseries usually store bare-root trees and shrubs in beds of damp sawdust.. When selecting a bare root plant, look for the thickest stem or trunk. Since tops have sometimes been pruned, height is not a good indication of vigor. The roots should look plump and healthy. Many are necessarily cut or broken when they are dug, but the major roots should be intact. Since much of the plants energy is stored in the roots system in the form of starch, plants with larger root systems will get off to a faster start in the spring.. If the roots have just begun to grow, its OK, but plant the tree or shrub as soon as you get home. If the new roots have grown long enough that they begin to look like spaghetti, they will be difficult to handle, and many will break; new roots ...

Start: 2019 - End: 2021. A proper and steady supply of vital nutrients to plant crops is one of the most important goals in local and global agricultural industries. This supply is usually performed through the plant roots, which has been proven as less than effective due to unwanted reactions with various soil components. The nutrients are therefore lost in great amounts with low delivery yields, and their loss continues as they are many times washed away by rainwater. An alternate strategy of delivering these nutrients through the plants foliage has been attempted as well, yet with only limited success. The reason for this is the plant leaves coating material, and its physical repellence from the applied nutrients. Side implications are also present in this strategy as the nutrients were seen to get caught in interactions with certain plant tissues which act as a sort of an anatomical obstacle. The outcome from this is low delivery yields that directly affect the availability and ...

I am currently a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow based at the Centre for Plant Integrative Biology at the University of Nottingham, with joint affiliation to the School of Biosciences and the School of Mathematical Sciences.. My research group develops multiscale models to understand plant growth and development.. Biological interests. Hormone transport The dynamic spatial distributions of plant hormones play essential roles in controlling plant growth and development. These distributions depend, often unintuitively, on the spatial arrangement of proteins (e.g. PIN, AUX1/LAX and ABCBs) on the cell membranes as well as the dynamics of biosynthesis and degradation network within individual cells. We are developing models to understand how these cellular and subcellular scale processes control dynamic hormone distributions at the organ scale. In the root tip, for example, auxin dynamics affects growth rates, growth direction and lateral root initiation, and therefore our auxin-transport models ...
Interactions between individuals that are guided by simple rules can generate swarming behavior. Swarming behavior has been observed in many groups of organisms, including humans, and recent research has revealed that plants also demonstrate social behavior based on mutual interaction with other individuals. However, this behavior has not previously been analyzed in the context of swarming. Here, we show that roots can be influenced by their neighbors to induce a tendency to align the directions of their growth. In the apparently noisy patterns formed by growing roots, episodic alignments are observed as the roots grow close to each other. These events are incompatible with the statistics of purely random growth. We present experimental results and a theoretical model that describes the growth of maize roots in terms of swarming.

Population dynamics of ring, mint and stubby-root nematodes are basically similar and appear to be related to the dynamics of root growth. Densities of all three species increase in the spring after the peak in root growth, decline after the decline in root weight, increase again after the summer flush in root growth and decline after the drop in root biomass following harvest. There is also some indication that stubby-root nematodes increase again in late fall but they probably decline rapidly again during the winter. ...

The ground tissue of plants contains three main cell types called parenchyma, collenchyma, and sclerenchyma. These cells types primarily support storage, mechanical support, but can also serve for food production in the photosynthetic cells, or serve in wound healing and regeneration, depending on which class of cells they belong to.. ...
My main challenge that I have faced as I have become increasingly interested in exploring education is how to serve. I feel that there is so much I have to learn before I can actually address this issue; however, I feel that I have many strengths that may be useful. First, I consider myself to have an ability to listen, assess, and then focus on a specific root. If I could find an organization and professor that would be willing to help me find a root, I think that I would be an asset in conducting research. I also think that writing is a particular strenth of mine. In addition, I think that I am extremely empathetic but also have the ability to step back and think about the bigger picture ...
The hierarchic indexed sequential access method (HISAM) database organization adds some badly needed capabilities not provided by HSAM. Like HSAM, HISAM databases store segments within each record in physically adjacent sequential order. Unlike HSAM, each HISAM record is indexed, allowing direct access to each record. This eliminates the need to read sequentially through each record until the desired record is found. As a result, random data access is considerably faster than with HSAM. HISAM databases also provide a method for sequential access when that is needed.. A HISAM database is stored in a combination of two data sets. The database index and all segments in a database record that fit into one logical record are stored in a primary data set that is a VSAM KSDS. Remaining segments are stored in the overflow data set, which is a VSAM ESDS. The index points to the CI containing the root segment, and the logical record in the KSDS points to the logical record in the ESDS, if ...

Before daylight decreases and temperatures drop, August is the time to take cuttings or "slips" from summer plants you want to reproduce. Later timing reduces your chance for success. What is a cutting or slip? It means that you take a stem of new, healthy growth to stimulate root production resulting in a true clone of a parent plant. Why would you want to reproduce a plant when so many new and different ones are available in the spring at nurseries? 1. It may not be available next year.. ...
