Soil organic matter stability plays a major role in regulating the priming effect
Soil is the largest carbon (C) stock in terrestrial ecosystems, with its pool size being determined by the balance between C inputs from plant production and C outputs through microbial decomposition. Of the various plant–soil interactions, the priming effect (i.e. alteration of soil organic matter (SOM) decomposition by labile C inputs) is a key mechanism regulating soil C cycle. Kno...

The workshop on development of grass-based livestock husbandry was jointly organized by the Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IBCAS) and AgResearch. The meeting was held in Beijing from November 5 to 6, more than 30 participants from AgResearch, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), Chinese Agricultural University (CAU) and LanZ...
Researchers discover a new regulator of Arabidopsis seed dormancy and germination
Seed dormancy and germination influence plant fitness and agricultural production. DELAY OF GERMINATION 1 (DOG1) has been identified as a dormancy-specific regulator in Arabidopsis, and DOG1 is conserved in the plant kingdom. Identification of DOG1 associated proteins will further improve our understanding of the molecular mechanism underlying seed dormancy and regulation. A resear...
