In order to reveal the drought resistance and adaptation of the C4 desert plant Haloxylon ammodendron under artificially controlled soil moisture regimes, representative plants were selected to measure canopy photosynthesis using canopy photosynthetic measurement system. The results showed that appropriate soil moisture significantly enhances the canopy and(More)
C3 desert plant Reaumuria soongorica (RS-C3) and C4 desert plant Salsola passerina (SP-C4) may exist either in individual or in associated communities. Carbon isotope composition, leaf water potential, gas exchange and chlorophyll fluorescence characteristics of the individual and associated communities were compared with reveal, whether the associated(More)
To reveal the effects of ploidy level and haplotype on photosynthetic traits, we chose 175 genotypes of wild strawberries belonging to two haplotypes at two types of ploidy levels (diploidy and tetraploidy) and measured photosynthetic traits. Our results revealed that ploidy significantly affected the characteristics of light-response curves, CO2-response(More)
Understanding changes in the interactions between parasitic plants and their hosts in relation to ontogenetic changes in the hosts is crucial for successful use of parasitic plants as biological controls. We investigated growth, photosynthesis and chemical defences in different-aged Bidens pilosa plants in response to infection by Cuscuta australis. We were(More)
