Mycorrhizal Types Control Biodiversity Effects on Productivity
Mycorrhizal symbiosis helps plants expand their root surface area, giving plants greater access to nutrients and water. Although the first and foremost role of mycorrhizal symbiosis is to facilitate plant nutrition, scientists have not been clear how mycorrhizal types mediates the nutrient acquisition and interactions of coexisting trees in forests. To address this issue, Prof. LIU Lin...
Researchers Uncover Key Codon Repeats Regulating Chilling Tolerance in Rice
A recent study by Prof. CHONG Kang’s group from the Institute of Botany of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has revealed a novel cold domesticated repair mechanism for DNA damage in rice, providing corresponding elite modules for the improvement of chilling tolerance trait in rice with the codon repeats at a single site. Results were published online in Science Advances. Glob...
Researchers Find Positive Legacy Effects After Grassland Droughts
Global change-induced extreme droughts are increasing in grasslands worldwide. Severe droughts not only reduce current-year grassland productivity substantially, but also have a legacy effect on productivity in subsequent years. Such drought legacies can greatly affect the response of grassland ecosystems to climate change. In general, severe droughts tend to have a negative legacy effect ...
