Histologically, there are variations in the distribution of the types of elastic fibers within the tissues of the masticatory mucosa. For example, the alveolar mucosa has heavy deposits of elastin which decrease in quantity and size as it merges with the attached gingiva. These differences in elastin content may result from the tissues' different(More)
Plant–microbial interactions may play a key role in plant invasions. One common microbial interaction takes place between plants and fungal endophytes when fungi asymptomatically colonize host plant tissues. The objectives of this study were to isolate and sequence fungal endophytes colonizing non-native Phragmites australis in the Great Lakes region to(More)
