Research into potato tuber initiation and development, which enables research into potato tubers of Solanum tuberosum to be developed, is supported.
Action of the fungicide phosphite on Eucalyptus marginata inoculated with Phytophthora cinnamomi
The effect of phosphite in controlling the pathogen is determined by the phosphite concentration at the host–pathogen interface, and when phosphite concentrations within the roots are low, phosphite interacts with the pathogenic at the site of ingress to stimulate host defence enzymes.
Chloroplast DNA evidence for reticulate evolution in Eucalyptus (Myrtaceae)
The cpDNA results provide the strongest evidence to date that hybridization has had a widespread impact on a eucalypt species and indicate that reticulate evolution may be occurring on an unappreciated scale in E. globulus.

It is concluded that sequestration of lactate within the shell represents a potentially major adaptation to anoxic acidosis for this animal and, together with the previously described release of shell carbonates, may account for up to two-thirds of the total lactic acid buffering in this animal.
Ionic exchanges of turtle shell in vitro and their relevance to shell function in the anoxic turtle
The results are consistent with observations on anoxic turtles in vivo and confirm the important role of the shell as a source of buffer and as a storage site for lactate.
Phytochrome B affects the levels of a graft-transmissible signal involved in tuberization
Grafting experiments between phy tochrome B antisense and wild-type potato plants provide evidence that phytochrome B is involved in the production of a graft-transmissible inhibitor of tuberization, the level of which is reduced in the antisense plants, allowing them to tuberize in noninducing photoperiods.
Functional association of bill morphology and foraging behaviour in calidrid sandpipers
High resolution microscopy was used to study gross bill morphology of Western Sandpipers and showed that bills of males and females differed with regard to length but not curvature or depth, despite clear differences in for- aging behaviour between the sexes.
In Vitro Effects of Secondary Plant Compounds on Germination of Blastospores of the Entomopathogenic Fungus Paecilomyces fumosoroseus (Deuteromycotina: Hyphomycetes)
Results indicate that the presence of allelochemicals on a substrate (e.g., insect cuticle or leaf) may be an additional constraint to the survival of entomopathogenic fungi.
