The effects of phenotypic plasticity on photosynthetic performance in winter rye, winter wheat and Brassica napus.
Photosynthetic performance in wild type compared to the BNCBF17-overexpressing transgenic B. napus indicated that CBFs/DREBs regulate not only freezing tolerance but also govern plant architecture, leaf anatomy and photosynthetics performance. Expand
Influence of Citric Acid and Glycine on the Adsorption of Mercury (II) by Kaolinite under Various pH Conditions
This investigation was carried out to study the effect of different concentrations of citric acid and glycine, which are common in freshwaters, on the kinetics of the adsorption of Hg by kaoliniteExpand
Tillage responses of wheat in relation to irrigation regimes and nitrogen rates on an alluvial sand in a semi-arid subtropical climate
Abstract A 3 year field study was conducted to evaluate the effects of conventional tillage (CT, uniform soil disruption to 10 cm depth) and deep tillage (DT, sub-soiling to 40–45 cm depth withExpand
Paraurosomoida indiensis gen. nov., sp. nov., an oxytrichid (Ciliophora, Hypotricha) from Kyongnosla Alpine Sanctuary, including note on non-oxytrichid Dorsomarginalia.
Molecular analyses consistently place P. indiensis with soft bodied oxytrichids, and morphology, morphogenesis, and molecular phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA sequence are consistent. Expand
Assessment of genetic diversity among 125 cultivars of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) of Indian origin using ISSR markers
Assessment of genetic diversity in 125 cultivars of chickpea of Indian origin revealed high genetic variability among the studied cultivars, indicating more variability among these cultivars in comparison to resistant and susceptible cultivars. Expand
Bioefficacy and mode-of-action of some limonoids of salannin group fromAzadirachta indica A. Juss and their role in a multicomponent system against lepidopteran larvae
In nutritional assays, all three comounds reduced growth and consumption when fed to larvae without any effect on efficiency of conversion of ingested food (ECI), suggesting antifeedant activity alone, and where the three compounds were co- administered, no enhancement in activity was observed.

Found in translation: high-throughput chemical screening in Arabidopsis thaliana identifies small molecules that reduce Fusarium head blight disease in wheat.
The Arabidopsis-based liquid assay represents a biologically relevant surrogate system for high-throughput studies of agriculturally important plant-pathogen interactions and significantly reduced the severity of F. graminearum infection in wheat. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Urosomoida agilis, and new combinations: Hemiurosomoida longa gen. nov., comb. nov., and Heterourosomoida lanceolata gen. nov., comb. nov. (Ciliophora, Hypotricha).
Molecular phylogeny inferred from maximum likelihood, neighbour joining and maximum parsimony methods has adequately removed ambiguity over the systematics of U. agilis and U. longa and Oxytricha, respectively, and two new generic combinations are proposed, Hemiurosomoida longa gen. nov., comb. Expand
Morphology, ontogenesis, and molecular phylogeny of an Indian population of Cyrtohymena (Cyrtohymenides) shii, including remarks on the subgenus.
18S rDNA sequence of the Indian population matches with those of two populations of C. citrina; it also clusters with Afrokeronopsis aurea, a neokeronopsid, with which it interestingly shares some morphological features, supporting the CEUU hypothesis. Expand
Bioefficacy and Mode-of-Action of Aglaroxin B and Aglaroxin C from Aglaia elaeagnoidea (syn. A. roxburghiana) against Helicoverpa armigera and Spodoptera litura
Findings indicate that aglaroxins do not absolutely follow the activity pattern of azadirachtin or more related compound rocaglamide known in lepidopterans and act as both antifeedant and chronic toxins. Expand
