Competitive ability and environmental sensitivity in nicotiana rustica. In the first part of this thesis the effects of natural selection on two contrasting synthetic populations, of known initial genetical composition, after successive generations of mating in isolated, competitive conditions, are investigated for a number of ?uin= This prediction has been tested by two cycles of selection initiated in the F3 of a cross between varieties 2 and 12 of Nicotiana rustica for the mean performance and environmental sensitivity of H.

Abstract. In this paper, we discuss the role of genotype by environment interactions (GEI) in crop improvement, especially the following: (1) Implications of GEI in crop improvement, (2) Nature and causes of GEI, (3) Approaches for studying GEI, and (4) Strategies for using GEI in crop :// The evolution of increased competitive ability (EICA) hypothesis is an extension of the ODH, which proposes that when plants are introduced to a new geographical area, relaxation of selective pressure from natural enemies will favour the evolution of reduced ://   Conclusions.

Polyploidy can be an important factor in species invasion success through a combination of (1) ‘pre-adaptation’, whereby polyploid lineages are predisposed to conditions in the new range and, therefore, have higher survival rates and fitness in the earliest establishment phase; and (2) the possibility for subsequent adaptation due to a larger genetic diversity that may assist   Joint selection for both extremes of mean performance and of sensitivity to macro-environmental variable.

Introduction Overview. Cytochrome P, or CYP genes, constitute one of the largest family of genes, with representatives in virtually all living organisms, from bacteria to protists, plants, fungi, and animals (Werck-Reichhart and Feyereisen, ).An ever-growing number of P sequences is available, and the role of P enzymes is being documented in an increasing number of   Precise allocation of limited resources between growth and defense is critical for plant survival.

In shade-intolerant species, perception of competition signals by informational photoreceptors activates shade-avoidance responses and reduces the expression of defenses against pathogens and insects.

The main mechanism underlying defense suppression is the simultaneous downregulation of Metabolic engineering [74, 75] is a powerful tool for reconstructing cellular metabolic networks for improved production of chiral nopoulos and coworkers [76] successfully applied the concepts and tools of metabolic engineering in creating a recombinant Rhodococcus strain capable of completely converting indene to trans-(1R, 2R) chiral indandiol (Fig.

was strictly related to the growth, whereas hairy roots of Beta vulgaris L. exhibited non-growth-related product accumulation.

In the case of the hairy roots of Scopolia japonica Jacq. and H. muticus, the secondary products only started to accumulate after growth had ceased [ 36 Archived Publications.

Some plants are subjected to death of all aboveground parts at the end of growing season (top senescence) or loss of entire leafy cover leaving the stem and roots bare for stipulated time period (deciduous senescence); and still another form is the die back of oldest leaves in the normal development of annual plants (progressive senescence).

Abstract. Drought stress is among widespread environmental problems limiting plant survival, growth, and productivity. However, plants adopt a number of strategies such as osmotic adjustment, which could help maintain water uptake, cell turgor, and functions of stomata by accumulating large quantities of :// 8 Positive Interactions Among Plants Not all plant–plant interactions are competitive.

Plants often ameliorate the environment of neighbors and increase their growth and survivorship (facilitation), particularly at the seedling stage and where the physical environment or water and nutrients strongly constrain growth (Callaway ).
