    Bi-directional Dual-flow-RootChip for Physiological Analysis of Plant Primary Roots Under Asymmetric Perfusion of Stress Treatments
    Authors:  Claudia Allan, Blake Elliot, Volker Nock and Claudia-Nicole Meisrimler, date: 08/05/2023, view: 316, Q&A: 0

    Due to technical limitations, research to date has mainly focused on the role of abiotic and biotic stress–signalling molecules in the aerial organs of plants, including the whole shoot, stem, and leaves. Novel experimental platforms including

    Quantification of Ethylene Production in Leaf and Bud Tissue of the Subtropical Tree Crop Litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) Using Gas Chromatography and Flame Ionization Detection
    Authors:  Regina B. Cronje and Arnoldus J. Jonker, date: 03/20/2023, view: 416, Q&A: 0

    Ethylene is an important plant hormone that is involved in the regulation of numerous processes in plant development. It also acts as a signaling molecule in response to biotic and abiotic stress conditions. Most studies have investigated ethylene

    Design and Construction of Repacked Soil Columns for Measuring Solute Transport, Plant Growth and Soil Biota
    Authors:  Israel Ikoyi and Achim Schmalenberger, date: 01/20/2021, view: 2658, Q&A: 0

    Researchers face a number of challenges in the construction of soil columns which can affect the outcome of their experiments. The use of intact soil cores closely mimics actual field conditions. However, the excavation of large intact soil cores is

    A Low-volume Hydroponic Protocol for Maize and A Sensitive Bud-length Assay for Root-to-Shoot Impacts of The Strigolactone Analog, rac-GR24
    Authors:  Jiahn-Chou Guan and Karen E. Koch, date: 08/20/2020, view: 2517, Q&A: 0
    Hydroponic approaches have been a boon for root research by facilitating root-feeding studies as well as secretion analysis. Results have aided our understanding of root-shoot signaling, transport, hormone function and more. However, existing ...
    Accelerated Snowmelt Protocol to Simulate Climate Change Induced Impacts on Snowpack Dependent Ecosystems
    Field studies that simulate the effects of climate change are important for a predictive understanding of ecosystem responses to a changing environment. Among many concerns, regional warming can result in advanced timing of spring snowmelt in ...
    Experiments for in silico evaluation of Optimality of Photosynthetic Nitrogen Distribution and Partitioning in the Canopy: an Example Using Greenhouse Cucumber Plants
    Authors:  Yi-Chen Pao, Tsu-Wei Chen, Dany Pascal Moualeu-Ngangue and Hartmut Stützel, date: 03/20/2020, view: 4355, Q&A: 0
    Acclimation of leaf traits to fluctuating environments is a key mechanism to maximize fitness. One of the most important strategies in acclimation to changing light is to maintain efficient utilization of nitrogen in the photosynthetic apparatus by ...
    In vitro Conditions for Dark Growth and Analysis of Maize Seedlings
    Authors:  Jeffrey Farrow, Marschal A. Bellinger and Carolyn G. Rasmussen, date: 03/20/2020, view: 2963, Q&A: 0
    Maize is an important model organism for understanding plant traits essential for proper growth and germination. One type of growth, skotomorphogenesis, occurs in the absence of light. Seedlings grown in the absence of light exhibit dramatic ...
    Cell Wall Compositional Analysis of Rice Culms
    Authors:  Lanjun Zhang, Baocai Zhang and Yihua Zhou, date: 10/20/2019, view: 3797, Q&A: 0
    The plant cell wall is a complicated network that is mainly constituted of polysaccharides, such as cellulose, hemicellulose and pectin. Many noncellulosic polysaccharides are further acetylated, which confers these polymers flexible physicochemical ...
    Hormone Treatments during Maize Vegetative and Reproductive Development
    Authors:  María Jazmín Abraham-Juárez and Harry Klein, date: 05/20/2019, view: 3300, Q&A: 0
    Plant hormones are a group of organic natural compounds that can influence physiological processes when present at low concentrations. Plant biologists frequently use exogenous hormone application to modify plant physiology or to rescue mutants with ...
    I Plate-based Assay for Studying How Fungal Volatile Compounds (VCs) Affect Plant Growth and Development and the Identification of VCs via SPME-GC-MS
    Authors:  Wenzhao Wang, Ningxiao Li, Xingzhong Liu and Seogchan Kang, date: 02/20/2019, view: 6264, Q&A: 0
    Biogenic volatile compounds (VCs) mediate various types of crucial intra- and inter-species interactions in plants, animals, and microorganisms owing to their ability to travel through air, liquid, and porous soils. To study how VCs produced by ...
