The plant age influences eggplant fruit growth, metabolic activity, texture and shelf-life
(Elsevier Science, 2020-10)
Vegetable quality shows extensive variation along a single production cycle depending on the harvest season. So far, these effects have been mostly attributed to variations in preharvest climatic conditions, resource ...
Plant-derived products with antiglycation activity
(CRC Press - Taylor & Francis Group, 2018)
Plant extracts and phytochemicals evidenced the capacity to prevent some diseases associated with oxidative stress and advanced glycation end product (AGE) formation. • Polyphenols are the main group of compounds with ...
Conservation values of understory vascular plants in even- and uneven-aged Nothofagus antarctica forests
Usually, stands with aging trees are considered forests with higher conservation values, regardless their structural diversity and other functional attributes. Natural stands present a wide range of age structures, from ...
Enhanced molecular visualization of root colonization and growth promotion by Bacillus subtilis EA-CB0575 in different growth systems
(Elsevier GmbH, 2018-01-01)
Bacillus subtilis EA-CB0575 is a plant growth-promoting bacterium (PGPB) associated with banana and tomato crops. Root colonization is an important trait for PGPB microorganisms and potentiates the bacterial effect related ...

Plant and herbivore ontogeny interact to shape the preference, performance and chemical defense of a specialist herbivore
The amount of damage that herbivorous insects impose on plants varies as a function of plant ontogenetic trajectories in tissue quality and defenses, and the herbivores’ own developmental trajectories in body size, mandible ...
The interplay between ovule number, pollination and resources as determinants of seed set in a modular plant
Background. A classical dichotomous perspective proposes that either pollination or plant resources limit seed production. However, ovule number could also be limiting when pollination results in complete ovule fertilization ...
Ectomycorrhizal fungal communities in Nothofagus nervosa (Raulí): A comparison between domesticated and naturally established specimens in a native forest of Patagonia, Argentina
Due to its overexploitation during the past century, Nothofagus nervosa is currently included in conservation and domestication programs, in which ectomycorrhizas play an important role. We aimed to describe the abundance ...
