Limitation of plant water use by rhizosphere and xylem conductance: results from a model
Comparison of model results with drought experiments in sunflower and water birch indicated that stomatal regulation of E reflected the species' hydraulic potential for extracting soil water, and that the more sensitiveStomatal response of water Birch to drought was necessary to avoid hydraulic failure.
Genetics of soybean agronomic traits: I. Comparison of three related recombinant inbred populations
Comparison of QTLs between the three RI populations established that for the majority of the traits, only two alleles could be identified, and an almost equal number were found in only one population, suggesting that a dependence on the genetic background for expression was common.
Epistat : a computer program for identifying and testing interactions between pairs of quantitative trait loci
A computer program, Epistat, which combines statistical methods and color-graphic displays to facilitate the analysis of interactions between pairs of quantitative trait loci (QTLs), has been used to find numerous interactions between QTLs in soybean.
How to make a biological switch.
Quantitative analysis shows that the existence of two stable steady states depends on the details of the system, and that functions describing positive cooperativity of binding, non-additive effects of multiple operator sites, or depletion of free repressor can lead to working switches.
Genetics of Soybean Agronomic Traits: II. Interactions between Yield Quantitative Trait Loci in Soybean
The data from the MA population support the concept that interactions between QTLs also can result in location-specific effects on quantitative traits.

A validated 5-year survivorship model is created that provides insights into the complex nature of cystic fibrosis and supplies a rigorous tool for clinical practice and research.
Interactions between quantitative trait loci in soybean in which trait variation at one locus is conditional upon a specific allele at another.

A large recombinant inbred population of soybean has been characterized for 220 restriction fragment-length polymorphism (RFLP) markers and interactions show that interactions between QTL are frequent and control large effects.
Water transport in plants obeys Murray's law
Computer simulations of the hydraulic conductance of a branched transport system and measurements of plant xylem indicate that these conduits conform to the Murray's law optimum as long as they do not function additionally as supports for the plant body.
Filling key gaps in population and community ecology
Predicting the strength and context-dependence of species interactions across multiple scales; identifying the importance of feedbacks from individual interactions to ecosystem dynam- ics; and linking pattern with process to understand species coexistence are focused on.
