Morphological and functional characteristics of Plantago media L. leaves were compared for plants growing at different light regimes on limestone outcrops in Southern Timan (62°45′N, 55°49′E). The plants grown in open areas under exposure to full sunlight had small leaves with low pigment content and high specific leaf weight; these leaves exhibited high(More)
Morphophysiological characteristics of rhizomes and growth relationships between underground shoots and aboveground orthotropic shoots were studied in two species of perennial monocotyledonous plants—Hungarian brome (Bromopsis inermis (Leyss.) Holub.) and reed canary-grass (Phalaroides arundinacea (L.) Rauschert.). The underground metameric complex was(More)
A quantitative approach to the evaluation of source–sink relations in Ajuga reptans plants grown under the forest canopy (shade plants) and on an open plot (sun plants) was worked out in terms of growth characteristics, CO2 exchange, and carbon balance. Shade plants developed leaves with the relative and specific areas twice exceeding those of sun plants.(More)
The specific features of the structural and functional organisation of the photosynthetic apparatus (PSA) were studied in wild halophytes representing three strategies of salt tolerance: euhalophyte Salicornia perennans, crynohalophyte Limonium gmelinii, and glycohalophyte Artemisia santonica. The sodium content in aboveground parts of the plants(More)
Accumulation of biomass, the respiration rate, and the contents of total nitrogen and nonstructural carbohydrates were studied for 14 perennial long-rhizome-forming species differing in the type of adaptive strategy. Fast-growing species with well expressed competitive-ruderal properties (CR plants) were characterized by a higher productivity, a better(More)
Seasonal changes in the anatomical and morphological structure and metabolic activity of rhizomes were studied in a perennial grass reed canary-grass (Phalaroides arundinacea (L.) Rauschert). An active formation of the underground stock of meristems and a rhizome weight accumulation were shown in the later half of a growth period, after a decline in the(More)
The elemental composition and the content of pigments, proteins, lipids, free amino acids, and antioxidants of five wild halophyte species in Prieltonye were investigated. Plants differed in systematic location (Chenopodiaceae, Plumbaginaceae, Asteraceae), the type of regulation of salt metabolism (eu-, cryno, and glycohalophytes), life form (annual(More)
Structural and functional parameters and redox homeostasis in leaves of Artemisia santonica L. under environment conditions of Elton lake (the southeast region of the European part of Russia) were measured. The highest photosynthetic apparatus (PA) activity in A. santonica leaves on CO2 gas exchange as well as the highest content of green pigments was(More)
Applicability of a new substrate for crops cultivation in bioregenerative LSSs with a high degree of mass-exchange closure was tested. Optimization of leaf cabbage nutrition by supplementing the basic substrate fabricated of plant and animal residues with ion-exchange resins proved to have a success.
Polar glycerolipids and photosynthetic pigments of Plantago media L. plants, growing on limestone outcrops of the Southern Timan, have been studied. Leaves of plants growing on well insolated and heated slopes are characterized by an intensive lipoperoxidation; the accumulation of chlorophylls and carotenoids in these plants is 1.5–2 times less and the(More)
