Effects of soil fertility on early development of wetland vegetation from soil seed bank: Focusing on biomass production and plant species diversity
Predominance of perennials and exotics under eutrophic condition in early vegetation development seemed to lead a continuous decrease in plant species diversity as a result of competitive effect. Expand
Shade and physical support are necessary for conserving the Aristolochia contorta population
Aristolochia contorta is a perennial vine with a narrow distribution range; it is also the only host plant for Sericinus montela (the dragon swallowtail), a vulnerable species in Korea, and it is necessary to provide proper shade and physical support and install physical supports to improve the growth of A. contortsa in artificial habitats established for conservation.

Auxin mediates the touch-induced mechanical stimulation of adventitious root formation under windy conditions in Brachypodium distachyon
B Brachypodium distachyon, a model grass widely used for studies on bioenergy crops and cereals, efficiently adapts to wind-mediated lodging stress by forming adventitious roots (ARs) from nonroot tissues, which will be applicable to crop agriculture in extreme wind climates. Expand
An assessment of the ecological functions of a sustainable structured wetland biotope (SSB)
Abstract Urban treatment wetlands purify water and provide various ecological services such as food and habitat. We applied the sustainable structured wetland biotope (SSB) system, which considersExpand
Effects of habitat differences on the genetic diversity of Persicaria thunbergii
To understand the effects of habitat characteristics on the genetic diversity of Persicaria thunbergii, three sites of different environmental conditions in a water system were surveyed and Random amplification of polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis of ten P. thUNbergii individuals at each site was conducted to calculate population genetic diversity and genetic distance among populations.

Reduced host plant growth and increased tyrosine-derived secondary metabolites under climate change and negative consequences on its specialist herbivore.
It is suggested that both the quantity and the quality of host plants as a food would decline, and the growth performance of its specialist herbivore might be threatened as climate change progresses. Expand
Effects of microtopography and nutrients on biomass production and plant species diversity in experimental wetland communities
Abstract We performed a mesocosm study to examine the effects of microtopography and nutrients on biomass production, plant species diversity, and the relationships between these indices in wetlandExpand
Differences in functional traits of leaf blade and culm of common reed in four habitat types
This work compared the functional traits of leaf blades and culms of common reed in four habitat types of distinguished environments such as temperature, precipitation, water characteristics, and indices related to biomass production to find out the relationships within and among populations. Expand
