Plant height is one of the most heritable traits in maize (Zea mays L.). Understanding the genetic control of plant height is important for elucidating the molecular mechanisms that regulate maize development. To investigate the genetic basis of the plant height response to density in maize, we evaluated the effects of two different plant densities (60,000(More)
Maize yield increase has been strongly linked to plant population densities over time with changes in plant architecture, but the genetic basis for the plant architecture response to plant density is unknown, as is its stability across environments. To elucidate the genetic basis of the plant architecture response to density in maize, we mapped quantitative(More)
This paper takes the non-irrigated plain areas in Xinjiang as the study area, where the natural vegetation draws water mainly from the shallow groundwater to satisfy its demands. Through interpretation of TM satellite images and hydro-geological investigations, understanding of the unsaturated strata, shallow water depth, distribution and coverage of(More)
Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder, and embryonic exposure to valproic acid (VPA) in rodents is the most frequently studied environmentally triggered autism models. Valproic acid can affect gene transcription as a histone deacetylase inhibitor, and thus may alter the expression of the most genes including reference genes. The aim of the current study(More)
A VDEAL (V is the lithology of the vadose zone, D is the groundwater depth, E is the degree of groundwater exploitation, A is the aquifer characteristics and L is the land use pattern.) model, which is suitable for a vulnerability evaluation of the groundwater in arid inland areas, and that is based on the GOD (G is the groundwater status, O is overburden(More)
In the plain irrigation districts in the Tarim Basin, Xinjiang where water resources are scarce, irrigation using brackish water is of great significance. The biggest problem with brackish water irrigation is salt accumulation in soil. The focus of concern of people is that, after 1-year application of brackish water irrigation, whether it is necessary to(More)
