- At3g08030 transcript: a molecular marker of seed ageing. Garza-Caligaris, Luz Elena; Avendaño-Vázquez, Aida Odette; Alvarado-López, Sandra; Zúñiga-Sánchez, Esther; Orozco-Segovia, Alma; Pérez-Ruíz, Rigoberto V.; Gamboa-deBuen, Alicia // Annals of Botany;Nov2012, Vol. 110 Issue 6, p1253
Background and Aims Prolonged storage generally reduces seed viability and vigour, although the rate of deterioration varies among species and environmental conditions. Here, we suggest a possible ageing molecular marker: At3g08030 mRNA. At3g08030 is a member of the DUF642 highly conserved...
- How plants with patterned leaves compete. Timson, John // New Scientist;9/1/90, Vol. 127 Issue 1732, p25
Considers how the camouflage of patterned leaves makes the plants less likely to be eaten by herbivores according to Thomas Givnish of the University of Wisconsin. The environment of mottled and variegated leaves; Disadvantages of reduced photosynthesis.
- Himalayan tahr. // Encyclopedia of Animals;2006, p1
Himalayan tahrs live mostly in the Himalayan mountains of Tibet, but may also be found in South Africa and New Zealand. A group of them were sent to New Zealand in 1904 to develop a population there; the population in South Africa developed after two Himalayan tahrs escaped from a zoo.

- INSECT FOLIVORY IN Didymopanax vinosum (APIACEAE) IN A VEGETATION MOSAIC OF BRAZILIAN CERRADO. Varanda, E. M.; Pais, M. P. // Brazilian Journal of Biology;May2006, Vol. 66 Issue 2, p671
Susceptibility of Didymopanax vinosum (Apiaceae) to insect herbivores was investigated in three sites of a cerrado mosaic--composed of campu cerrado (a grassland with scattered trees and shrubs), cerradÃ£o (a tall woodland) and cerrado sensu stricto (intermediate between the two)--situated in...
- The Impact of Elevated CO2 on Forest Arthropod Communities. // CO2 Science;2/27/2013, Vol. 16 Issue 9, p7
The article focuses on forest arthropod communities and the impact of elevated CO2 on it. It notes the views of authors Tylianakis et al on the documentations that loss of foliage to arthropod herbivores decreases under elevated CO2 in woody communities. It also cites that Hamilton et al counted...
- Plant Architecture and Leaf Damage in Bear Oak II: Insect Usage Patterns. Wilkens, Richard T.; Vanderklein, Dirk W.; Lemke II, Richard W. // Northeastern Naturalist;2005, Vol. 12 Issue 2, p153
Bear oak bushes (Quercus ilicifolia) have an inside-outside architecture where there is a set of leaves partially or completely concealed within the bush by an exterior set of leaves. We examine the impact of this architecture on microhabitat differences that are important to insect herbivores....
- Broad-leaved beauties. Wood, Tim // American Nurseryman;01/15/2000, Vol. 191 Issue 2, p30
Discusses several broad-leaved evergreen shrubs that are adaptable to modern landscapes. Boxwood hybrids derived from crosses between B. sempervirens and B. microphylla var. koreana; Features of ilex spp. or holly; Blue holly; Drawback of I. glabra.
- Sarcozona Ruschioideae. Hartmann, H. E. K. // Illustrated Handbook of Succulent Plants: Aizoaceae F-Z;2002, p286
This article presents information on Sarcozona shrub from Ruschioideae family. It has erect to decumbent branches, rooting very tardily near the stem. The leaves are triquetrous to trigonous, often one side convex, convex, the other concave, basal part of sheath persisting as a collar,...
