Seed bank of seasonally flooded grassland: experimental simulation of flood and post-flood
Wetland seed banks comprise the propagules of plant species that have species-specific germination requirements for germination in either flooded or dry conditions. At the community level, wetland structure and succession ...
Morphological effects of flooding on Styrax pohlii and the dynamics of physiological responses during flooding and post-flooding conditions
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-10-01)
Styrax pohlii naturally occurs in flood-prone areas and its capacity to survive floods is intriguing. Here we checked whether flooded potted plants of this species develop adventitious roots with aerenchyma, how rapid ...
Leaf traits related to productivity in Populus deltoides during the post-flooding period
Key message: After a flooding period,Populus deltoidesplants compensate for the reduced growth under flooding by substituting the leaf area loss instead of increasing the leaf photosynthetic activity. Abstract: Flooding ...
Some physiological and morphological responses of Pyrus boissieriana to flooding
European pear is a flooding-sensitive species, and for its cultivation in lowland areas, it is necessary to carry out the grafting of scions of commercial pear varieties into rootstocks belonging to flooding-tolerant wild ...
Potential increase in floods in California’s Sierra Nevada under future climate projections
California’s mountainous topography, exposure to occasional heavily moisture-laden storm systems, and varied communities and infrastructures in low lying areas make it highly vulnerable to floods. An important question ...
Computing, a Powerful Tool for Improving the Parameters Simulation Quality in Flood Prediction
(Elsevier Science, 2014-06)
Floods have caused widespread damage throughout the world. Modelling and simulation provide solutions and tools which enable us to forecast and make necessary steps toward prevention. One problem that must be handled by ...
INFLUENCE OF ROOTSTOCK ON THE RESPONSE OF HASS AVOCADO TREES TO FLOODING STRESS
(INT SOC HORTICULTURAL SCIENCE, 2011)
In Chile, commercial avocado production has expanded to areas with poorly-drained soils that are low in oxygen. In these soils, improper irrigation design or management can limit fruit production and quality due to flooding ...
Sobre inundaciones y anegamientos.
(Universidad de Chile; Facultad de Arquitectura y Urbanismo., 2006)
Respecto a anegamientos e inundaciones, el autor realiza algunas precisiones conceptuales que afectan la gestión de acciones preventivas, la planificación y el ordenamiento territorial; además se ofrece una sistematización ...
MODELS FOR SPATIALIZATION AND FORECASTING OF FLOODED AREAS IN THE SÃO SEBASTIÃO DO CAÍ URBAN ZONE, RIO GRANDE DO SUL STATE, BRAZIL
(Instituto de Geociências /Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, 2011)
Food system vulnerability amidst the extreme 2010-2011 flooding in the Peruvian Amazon: a case study from the Ucayali region
Projections of climate change indicate an increase in the frequency and intensity of climatic hazards such as flooding and droughts, increasing the importance of understanding community vulnerability to extreme hydrological ...
