Beyond a warming fingerprint: individualistic biogeographic responses to heterogeneous climate change in California
TLDR
Whether recent biogeographic patterns across California are consistent with a warming fingerprint is examined and a number of potential direct and indirect mechanisms for these responses are identified, including the influence of aspects of climate change other than temperature.
Punctuated plastome reduction and host–parasite horizontal gene transfer in the holoparasitic plant genus Aphyllon
TLDR
This work reports phylogenetic evidence based on an rbcL gene tree and assembled 60+ kb fragments of the Aphyllon epigalium mitochondrial genome indicating host-to-parasite horizontal gene transfers (hpHGT) of several genes originating from the plastome of an ancient Galium host into the mitochondrial genome of a recent common ancestor of A. epIGalium.
Comparative and Interactive Effects of Reduced Precipitation Frequency and Volume on the Growth and Function of Two Perennial Grassland Species
TLDR
This study provides new insights into differential and species-specific effects of changes in water frequency and volume and suggests that trying to understand plant responses to changing or heterogeneous precipitation regimes based solely on a single parameter of water availability might mask important dynamics governing these phenomena.
Unique bacterial assembly, composition, and interactions in a parasitic plant and its host
TLDR
Investigation of the leaf and root bacterial communities of the root holoparasite Orobanche hederae and its host Hedera spp.
Parallel Pleistocene amphitropical disjunctions of a parasitic plant and its host.
TLDR
Although Grindelia and Aphyllon both dispersed to South America recently, Grindelia appears to have diversified more extensively following colonization, and recent Pleistocene glaciations probably have also contributed to patterns of diversity and biogeography of temperate northern hemisphere Orobancheae.
Pleistocene radiation of the serpentine-adapted genus Hesperolinon and other divergence times in Linaceae (Malpighiales).
TLDR
Hesperolinon is an excellent example of edaphic neoendemism, in support of Raven and Axelrod's hypothesis for the genus, and the diversification of Linaceae is more recent than previously estimated.
Phylogeny and historical biogeography analysis support Caucasian and Mediterranean centres of origin of key holoparasitic Orobancheae (Orobanchaceae) lineages
TLDR
It is found that the Western Asia (particularly the Caucasus) and the Mediterranean are the centre of origin for large clades of holoparasitic Orobancheae within the last 6 million years.
Therapieoptionen der perioperativ erworbenen Thrombozytopathie
TLDR
Investigation of bedside-tests for platelet function in the peri-operative period is desirable according to the results of retrospective studies, and potentially represents a low cost alternative to platelet transfusions with minor side effects.
[Therapeutic options for perioperatively acquired platelet dysfunctions].
TLDR
Following adequate adjustment of basic conditions of haemostasis a pharmacological approach with desmopressin (1-desamino-8-d-arginine vasopressin; DDAVP) or tranexamic acid potentially represents a low cost alternative to platelet transfusions with minor side effects.
Cryptic host-specific diversity among western hemisphere broomrapes (Orobanche s.l., Orobanchaceae).
TLDR
Host-switching is an important driver of diversification in western hemisphere broomrapes, where host specificity has been grossly underestimated, and probably play fundamental roles in the speciation of parasitic plants.
