A Comparative Study of Plasticity in Seedling Rooting Depth in Drying Soil
Maximum depth of vertical root penetration into the soil (i.e. rooting depth) and shoot growth were measured for seedlings of 42 species of vascular plants in both unwatered and watered soil columns.… Expand
Seed size, shape and persistence in the soil in an Iranian flora
Previous studies on several floras have shown that species with small, rounded seeds tend to accumulate persistent seed banks in the soil, while species with larger, less compact seeds do not. The… Expand
Stomatal vs. genome size in angiosperms: the somatic tail wagging the genomic dog?
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Genome size is a function, and the product, of cell volume. As such it is contingent on ecological circumstance. The nature of 'this ecological circumstance' is, however, hotly… Expand
Essential oil composition of three Artemisia spp. from Iran
The essential oils were isolated by steam distillation from the aerial parts of A. aucheri Boiss., A. santolina Schrenk and A. sieberi Besser. The oils were analyzed by capillary GC and GC–MS. The… Expand
Soil seed banks in the Arasbaran Protected Area of Iran and their significance for conservation management
The Arasbaran Protected Area is an important but little studied nature reserve in NW Iran. In the past habitat heterogeneity and biodiversity have been threatened by over-exploitation; in the future… Expand
