In order to reveal the drought resistance and adaptation of the C(4) 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(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)
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)
