Are Red Lists really useful for plant conservation? The New Red List of the Italian Flora in the perspective of national conservation policies
“The New Red List of the Italian Flora” includes all the Italian policy species and other species of known conservation concerns for a total of 400 taxa, 65% of which are threatened with extinction.
Growth pattern of Bidens cernua L.: relationships between relative growth rate and its physiological and morphological components
Seedlings of Bidens cernua L. emerged when mean air temperature was 17.0±1.3 °C and the senescence phase was characterised by 79, 58, and 18 % decrease of PN, chlorophyll content, and leaf area, respectively, from the maximum values.
The conservation of the Italian Crop Wild Relatives in the RIBES seed-banks: first data to establish national inventories and conservation priorities
Banca del Germoplasma della Tuscia, Viterbo, Italy, andLaboratorio per the conservazione della diversità vegetale ligure, Genova, Italy.
A randomized controlled trial of mesentericocaval shunt with autologous jugular vein.
A mesentericocaval shunt does not appear to offer effective advantages compared with the portacaval anastomosis, and it should be performed in particular instances in which, for anatomic reasons, a portacAVS cannot be performed.
Temperature responsiveness of seedlings maximum relative growth rate in three Mediterranean Cistus species
Variations in temperature responsiveness of RGR up to RGRmax have a significant role in shaping the early growth for the investigated species and quantitatively define provenance dependent strategies by which the selected species cope with daily air temperature variations during early growth.

Strategies for ex situ conservation of Centaurea cineraria subsp. circae (Asteraceae), an endemic plant from Lazio (Italy)
In vitro studies demonstrated that micropropagation, acclimatization and the transfer outdoors of C. cineraria subsp.
