Abiotic Stress

The Climb

Plants need water in order to survive, but they don’t have a digestive and circulatory system to move liquid through their bodies. Instead they utilize the adhesive and cohesive properties of water with two structures called xylem and the stomata. 120 kata lagi


New paper published - Global effects of soil and climate on leaf photosynthetic traits and rates

/Here is a guest post written by Vincent Maire for his new paper in which Ülo Niinemets is one of the coauthors./

There is a longstanding debate among ecosystem ecologists to conclude if the soil has an independent impact on ecosystem productivity at global scale (Wang, Prentice and Davies 2014; Huston 2009, 2012). 1.039 kata lagi
