Endocytic trafficking towards the vacuole plays a key role in the auxin receptor SCFTIR-independent mechanism of lateral root formation in A. thaliana
(Oxford University Press, 2012)
Plants' developmental plasticity plays a pivotal role in responding to environmental conditions. One of the most plastic plant organs is the root system. Different environmental stimuli such as nutrients and water deficiency ...
Nitrogen loading of Eucalyptus globulus seedlings: nutritional dynamics and influence on morphology and root growth potential
Achieving successful outplanting of trees on increasingly harsher sites is a global concern. In Chile, for example, new Eucalyptus globulus plantations are being targeted to poorer, low fertility sites where additional ...
Defoliation affects chemical defenses in all plant parts of rye seedlings
(Kluwer Academic/Plenum Publishers, 1999)
The effect of defoliation and consecutive defoliation (condefoliation) of rye seedlings on the allocation patterns of biomass and hydroxamic acids (Hx) was evaluated five days after treatment. Growth of condefoliated ...
Arabidopsis thaliana AtUTr7 encodes a golgi-localized UDP-glucose/UDP- galactose transporter that affects lateral root emergence
(Oxford University Press, 2012)
Nucleotide sugar transporters (NSTs) are antiporters comprising a gene family that plays a fundamental role in the biosynthesis of complex cell wall polysaccharides and glycoproteins in plants. However, due to the limited ...
The multi metal-resistant bacterium Cupriavidus metallidurans CH34 affects growth and metal mobilization in Arabidopsis thaliana plants exposed to copper
Copper (Cu) is important for plant growth, but high concentrations can lead to detrimental effects such as primary root length inhibition, vegetative tissue chlorosis, and even plant death. The interaction between ...
Genetic and biological characterization of Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goid. causing crown and root rot of strawberry
(Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias, INIA, 2017)
In recent years, crown and root rot of strawberry (Fragaria×ananassa Duchesne ex Rozier) caused by Macrophomina phaseolina (Tassi) Goid. has affected strawberry production areas worldwide, and in developed ...
Respuesta en el desarrollo radicular de Arabidopsis thaliana al extracto foliar de Moringa oleiferaResponse in root development of Arabidopsis thaliana to leaf extract of Moringa oleifera
(Universidad Pedagógica y Tecnológica de Colombia, 2017)
Effect of crop load on the phenological, vegetative and reproductive behavior of the ‘Frantoio’ olive tree (Olea europaea L.)
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, 2017)
The aim of this study was to characterize the phenological, vegetative and reproductive behavior variables of ‘Frantoio’ olive trees in an “off” year (with a low crop load) and an “on” year (with a high crop load). To ...
Acacia caven nurses endemic sclerophyllous trees along a successional pathway from silvopastoral savanna to forest
The successional pathways linking the Acacia caven-dominated savanna habitat '' espinal '' and the closed sclerophyllous forest of central Chile have long been debated. Previously, espinal was considered an invasive ...
Rootstocks modulate the physiology and growth responses to water deficit and long-term recovery in grafted stone fruit trees
The effects of climate change have forced to search quickly new strategies to achieve sustainable agriculture in the context of a growing demand for food. Rootstocks have shown to have a key role in the resistance and ...
