Active proton efflux, nutrient retention and boron-bridging of pectin are related to greater tolerance of proton toxicity in the roots of two Erica species [Article]
Background and aims Tolerance to soil acidity was studied in two species of Ericaceae that grow in mine-contaminated soils (S Portugal, SW Spain) to find out if there are interspecific variations in H+ tolerance which ...
Population genetics of self-incompatibility in a clade of relict cliff-dwelling plant species [Article]
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the Annals of Botany Company, 2016)
The mating systems of species in small or fragmented populations impact upon their persistence. Small self-incompatible (SI) populations risk losing S allele diversity, responsible for the SI response, by drift thereby ...
Phylogeography of cliff-dwelling relicts with a highly narrow and disjunct distribution in the western Mediterranean [Article]
(Botanical Society of America, 2015)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY: The high biodiversity in the Baetic-Rifan hotspot of Mediterranean region is shaped by complex geological and climatic histories and has been a subject of recent intensive studies. However, very little ...
High Correlated Paternity Leads to Negative Effects on Progeny Performance in Two Mediterranean Shrub Species [Article]
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Anthropogenic habitat deterioration can promote changes in plant mating systems that subsequently may affect progeny performance, thereby conditioning plant recruitment for the next generation. However, very few studies ...
Divergence between phenotypic and genetic variation within populations of a common herb across Europe [Article]
(Ecological Society of America, 2014)
Analyzing the pattern and causes of phenotypic and genetic variation within and among populations might help to understand life history variability in plants, and to predict their responses to changing environmental ...
