Abscisic acid concentration and distribution during seed development of Cypripedium formosanum serves as the key inhibitor of germination.
A better understanding of germination and seedling establishment is needed for the conservation of vulnerable or threatened orchid populations.
A combined approach of asymptotic and transient dynamics expands the understanding of possible population changes for a rare epiphytic orchid.
This study finds that adventitious root formation is constrained in juvenile compared to mature plants, and is delayed by deep compared to shallow flooding.
The authors find that the coexistence of apomictic tetraploids and sexual diploids drives the production of novel polyploid cytotypes in S. austriaca.
This study reveals a new model for predicting root density which focuses on the spatial distribution of root density at the tree cluster scale.
This study investigates the conditions routinely used by genebanks and finds that standard practice may not be optimal for subsequent seed longevity.
Aluminum alleviates manganese toxicity by altering the properties of root cell membranes and cell walls in rice.
