Acute spinal cord injury (SCI) is two-step process that first involves the primary mechanical injury and then the secondary injury is induced by various biochemical reactions. Apoptosis is one of secondary SCI mechanisms and it is thought to play an important role for the delayed neuronal injury. The enhanced formation of nitric oxide (NO) via inducible(More)
Predicting species distributions with changing climate has often relied on climatic variables, but increasingly there is recognition that disturbance regimes should also be included in distribution models. We examined how changes in rainfall and disturbances along climatic gradients determined demographic patterns in a widespread and long-lived tree(More)
Mangrove trees tend to be larger and mangrove communities more diverse in tropical latitudes, particularly where there is high rainfall. Variation in the structure, growth and productivity of mangrove forests over climatic gradients suggests they are sensitive to variations in climate, but evidence of changes in the structure and growth of mangrove trees in(More)
We investigated the effect of water stress on yield and quality of tomato plants overexpressing Solanum lycopersicum thylakoid-bound ascorbate peroxidase gene (StAPX). APX activity, hydrogen peroxide content, net photosynthetic rate of tomato leaves, and yield and nutrition quality of tomato fruits were measured under soil moisture 70, 60, and 50 % of full(More)
