Biochemistry and physiology of raffinose family oligosaccharides and galactosyl cyclitols in seeds
Raffinose family oligosaccharides (RFOs) are of almost ubiquitous occurrence in plant seeds. They accumulate during seed development and disappear rapidly during germination. The biosynthesis ofExpand

Who is who in litter decomposition? Metaproteomics reveals major microbial players and their biogeochemical functions
Leaf-litter decomposition is a central process in carbon cycling; however, our knowledge about the microbial regulation of this process is still scarce. Metaproteomics allows us to link the abundanceExpand

Population history and its impact on medical genetics in Quebec
Knowledge of the genetic demography of Quebec is useful for gene mapping, diagnosis, treatment, community genetics and public health. The French‐Canadian population of Quebec, currently about 6Expand

Seasonality and resource availability control bacterial and archaeal communities in soils of a temperate beech forest
It was hypothesized that seasonality and resource availability altered through tree girdling were major determinants of the phylogenetic composition of the archaeal and bacterial community in aExpand

Experimental drought reduces the transfer of recently fixed plant carbon to soil microbes and alters the bacterial community composition in a mountain meadow
Drought affects plants and soil microorganisms, but it is still not clear how it alters the carbon (C) transfer at the plant–microbial interface. Here, we tested direct and indirect effects ofExpand

Global tropospheric NO2 column distributions' Comparing three-dimensional model calculations with GOME
Tropospheric NO2 columns derived from the data products of the Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment (GOME), deployed on the ESA ERS-2 satellite, have been compared with model calculations from twoExpand

Long-Term Change in the Nitrogen Cycle of Tropical Forests
The ratio of stable isotopes in leaves and wood reveals an increase in nitrogen availability in Panamanian and Thai tropical forests. Deposition of reactive nitrogen (N) from human activities hasExpand

Microbes as Engines of Ecosystem Function: When Does Community Structure Enhance Predictions of Ecosystem Processes?
Microorganisms are vital in mediating the earth’s biogeochemical cycles; yet, despite our rapidly increasing ability to explore complex environmental microbial communities, the relationship betweenExpand

Convergence of soil nitrogen isotopes across global climate gradients
Quantifying global patterns of terrestrial nitrogen (N) cycling is central to predicting future patterns of primary productivity, carbon sequestration, nutrient fluxes to aquatic systems, and climateExpand
