‘Stolen Genes’ for Plant Colonization：Chinese Scientists Find New Evidence
Bryophytes are a group of plants that include mosses, liverworts and hornworts. They are often referred to as the early land plants marking the transition from freshwater to a terrestrial ecosystem. The origin of land plants and the timing of the conquest of land have been contentious for a long time. In this context, hornworts have been the focus of much attention, since they exhibit ...
China’s rich plant diversity under human pressure: narrow-ranged losers, widespread winners
With intensifying human activities, many species have been threatened with extinction. However, many other species expand their ranges. Is there a general rule to identify which species are “losers” or “winners”? A research team led by Prof. MA Keping from the Institute of Botany of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in collaboration with scientists from the Center for Biodiversity D...
Beneficial and harmful fungi are at the root of forest diversity
by Jack J. Lee on 28 November 2019 from Mongabay A delicate balance between beneficial and harmful soil fungi associated with tree roots guides the diverse mixture of tree species that thrive in subtropical forests, according to a new study. Scientists had previously hypothesized that forest diversity resulted from a “rare-species advantage” driven by pathogenic, or harmful, fung...
