Mechanism of Salinity Tolerance in Plants: Physiological, Biochemical, and Molecular Characterization
Salinity is a major abiotic stress limiting growth and productivity of plants in many areas of the world due to increasing use of poor quality of water for irrigation and soil salinization. Plant… Expand
Involvement of antioxidants and lipid peroxidation in the adaptation of two cool-season grasses to localized drought stress.
In natural environments, drought often occurs in surface soil while water is available for plant uptake deeper in the soil profile. The objective of the study was to examine the involvement of… Expand
Drought and Heat Stress Injury to Two Cool-Season Turfgrasses in Relation to Antioxidant Metabolism and Lipid Peroxidation
Drought and high temperature are two major factors limiting the growth of cool-season lurfgrasses during summet in many areas. The objective of the study was to examine whether the adverse effects of… Expand
Heat Stress Injury in Relation to Membrane Lipid Peroxidation in Creeping Bentgrass
Understanding physiological and biochemical factors involved in heat-stress injury would help improve heat tolerance of cool-season grasses. The objective of this study was to investigate lipid… Expand
Thermotolerance and antioxidant systems in Agrostis stolonifera: involvement of salicylic acid, abscisic acid, calcium, hydrogen peroxide, and ethylene.
This study investigated whether pre-treating plants with specific putative signaling components and heat acclimation would induce tolerance of a cool-season grass, creeping bentgrass (Agrostis… Expand
Growth, physiological and anatomical responses of two wheat genotypes to waterlogging and nutrient supply
In order to investigate the responses of plant genotypes to waterlogging and nutrient supply, physiological, morphological, and anatomical features were determined for two genotypes of winter wheat… Expand
Research Advances in Mechanisms of Turfgrass Tolerance to Abiotic Stresses: From Physiology to Molecular Biology
Turgrfass used on landscapes, parks, sports fields, and golf courses has significant ecological, environmental, and economic impacts. The economic value of seed production of turfgrasses is second to… Expand
Drought-resistance mechanisms of seven warm-season turfgrasses under surface soil drying. I. Shoot response
Knowledge of drought-resistance mechanisms in turfgrasses would improve management strategies and facilitate turfgrass breeding for drought resistance. The experiment investigated root morphological… Expand
Effects of Salicylic Acid on Heat Tolerance Associated with Antioxidant Metabolism in Kentucky Bluegrass
Turf quality of Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis L.) often declines during summer when temperatures exceed its optimum range. This study was designed to determine whether application of salicylic… Expand
Nitric oxide is involved in abscisic acid-induced antioxidant activities in Stylosanthes guianensis.
Previous studies suggest that abscisic acid (ABA) stimulates the activities of antioxidant enzymes under normal and chilling temperature and enhanced chilling resistance in Stylosanthes guianensis.… Expand
