Plant organ development and polarity establishment is mediated by the action of several transcription factors. Among these, the KANADI (KAN) subclade of the GARP protein family plays important roles in polarity-associated processes during embryo, shoot and root patterning. In this study, we have identified a set of potential direct target genes of KAN1(More)
Riparian areas are noted for their high biodiversity, but this has rarely been tested across a wide range of taxonomic groups. We set out to describe species richness, species abundance, and community similarity patterns for 11 taxonomic groups (forbs & grasses, shrubs, trees, solpugids, spiders, scarab beetles, butterflies, lizards, birds, rodents, and(More)
Salt evaporation ponds are used in place of lost natural estuarine habitats for foraging and roosting by waterbirds around the world, but have started to be decommissioned in some areas due to low profitability. In San Francisco Bay, three former salt pond complexes (Alviso, Eden Landing, and Ravenswood) have been decommissioned, i.e., taken out of(More)
Salt evaporation ponds have played an important role as habitat for migratory waterbirds across the world, however, efforts to restore and manage these habitats to maximize their conservation value has proven to be challenging. For example, salinity reduction has been a goal for restoring and managing former salt evaporation ponds to support waterbirds in(More)
A quarterly review of wetland, waterfowl, and conservation literature Current Citations is produced quarterly by the library of Ducks Unlimited Canada's Institute for Wetland and Waterfowl Research as a service to Ducks Unlimited staff. Citations are extracted from a wetland/waterfowl-related keyword search of over 200 published journals and screened for(More)
