Biosynthesis, Metabolism and Function of Auxin, Salicylic Acid and Melatonin in Climacteric and Non-climacteric Fruits
Climacteric and non-climacteric fruits are differentiated by the ripening process, in particular by the involvement of ethylene, high respiration rates and the nature of the process, beingExpand

A defect in BRI1-EMS-SUPPRESSOR 1 (bes1)-mediated brassinosteroid signaling increases photoinhibition and photo-oxidative stress during heat stress in Arabidopsis.
Heat stress has negative effects on plant performance, especially in photosynthesis and photoprotection. To withstand heat stress, plants modulate steroid phytohormones, brassinosteroids (BRs).Expand

Cell wall structure and composition is affected by light quality in tomato seedlings.
Light affects many aspects of cell development. Tomato seedlings growing at different light qualities (white, blue, green, red, far-red) and in the dark displayed alterations in cell wall structureExpand

Sexual dimorphism in response to herbivory and competition in the dioecious herb Spinacia oleracea
Sexual dimorphism is common in dioecious plant species and is usually attributed to different cost of reproduction associated with male and female functions. Differences in growth and performanceExpand

Leaf Orientation as Part of the Leaf Developmental Program in the Semi-Deciduous Shrub, Cistus albidus L.: Diurnal, Positional, and Photoprotective Effects During Winter
Mediterranean ecosystems harbor a very important part of Earth’s biodiversity, and they are a conservation priority due to the effects of global change. Here, we examined the performance of theExpand

An Enzymatically Hydrolyzed Animal Protein-Based Biostimulant (Pepton) Increases Salicylic Acid and Promotes Growth of Tomato Roots Under Temperature and Nutrient Stress
Biostimulants may be particularly interesting for application in agricultural and horticultural crops since they can exert a growth-promoting effect on roots. This may be important for promotingExpand

Aging, stress, and senescence in plants: what can biological diversity teach us?
Aging, stress, and senescence in plants are interconnected processes that determine longevity. We focus here on compiling and discussing our current knowledge on the mechanisms of development thatExpand
What Is the Minimal Optimal Sample Size for Plant Ecophysiological Studies?
Dear Editor, Although significant advances have been made toward elucidating the most appropriate sample size for studies in many fields ([Meere and Mulchrone, 2003][1]; [Fiske et al., 2008][2];Expand
Contrasting patterns of hormonal and photoprotective isoprenoids in response to stress in Cistus albidus during a Mediterranean winter
Seasonal accumulation of hormonal and photoprotective isoprenoids, particularly α-tocopherol, carotenoids and abscisic acid, indicate their important role in protecting Cistus albidus plants fromExpand
Linking jasmonates with vitamin E accumulation in plants: a case study in the Mediterranean shrub Cistus albidus L.
MAIN CONCLUSION Jasmonic acid positively modulates vitamin E accumulation, but the latter can also partly influence the capacity to accumulate the jasmonic acid precursor, 12-oxo-phytodienoic acid,Expand
