BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Sclerotinia stem rot (SSR, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum) is a damaging disease of oilseed brassicas world-wide. Host resistance is urgently needed to achieve control, yet the factors that contribute to stem resistance are not well understood. This study investigated the mechanisms o

The various effects of hydrodynamic cavitation (HC) on algal growth inhibition were investigated. The gas-vacuolate species Microcystis aeruginosa responded differently to the gas-vacuole-negative alga Chlorella sp. When M. aeruginosa was subjected to HC, both its cell density and photosynthetic act
Development and evolution of the female gametophyte and fertilization process in Welwitschia mirabilis (Welwitschiaceae).
American journal of botany.Am J Bot.2015 Feb;102(2):312-24. doi: 10.3732/ajb.1400472. Epub 2015 Feb 3.
PREMISE OF THE STUDY: The female gametophyte of Welwitschia has long been viewed as highly divergent from other members of the Gnetales and, indeed, all other seed plants. However, the formation of female gametes and the process of fertilization have never been observed.METHODS: Standard histologica
