Economically important crop chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is sensitive to chilling stress, and breeding for chilling tolerance is the economic option even in countries with a high risk for drought and heat stresses. In this study, we have analyzed chilling-induced responses of ten chickpea accessions under field and growth-chamber conditions in order to(More)
Spreading depression (SD) is pronounced depolarization of neurons and glia that travels slowly across brain tissue followed by massive redistribution of ions between intra- and extracellular compartments. There is a relationship between SD and some neurological disorders. In the present study the effects of repetitive SD on neuronal damage in cortical and(More)
Plants require the proper balance of zinc (Zn) for normal growth and optimum yield. Interest in Zn has risen in the last decade because Zn deficiency stress is extensive in many areas, causing decreases in crop yields. Zn deficiency also decreases the amount of Zn in cereal grain and diminishes its nutritional quality. Hence, increasing the Zn content of(More)
Zinc deficiency is a critical nutritional problem in soils, restricting yield and nutritional quality of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.). Some genotypes (Zn-efficient) can produce greater yield and accumulate more Zn in seed under Zn deficiency than standard (Zn-inefficient) genotypes. However, there is little information regarding the genetics of Zn(More)
In this paper, a method for extracting edges from Imperialistic competition evolutionary algorithm is used. The edges of this method are obtained in two distinct ways: The first method of imperialistic competitive algorithm for optimizing the parameters of a decision threshold. The method is useful to derive the standard Sobel edge operator and improved(More)
Zinc (Zn) is an important micronutrient for the growth and development of plant and humans, and dietary Zn shortage is a global wide nutritional problem. A field experiment was conducted to investigate the effects of foliar Zn application at different growth stages on grain yield, grain mineral nutrients and its relation to phytic acid content in spring(More)
Many traits play essential roles in determining crop yield. Wide variation for morphological traits exists in Hordeum vulgare L., but the genetic basis of this morphological variation is largely unknown. To understand genetic basis controlling morphological traits affecting yield, a barley doubled haploid population (146 individuals) derived from Clipper ×(More)
