Evolutionary principles and their practical application
Evolutionary principles are now routinely incorporated into medicine and agriculture. Examples include the design of treatments that slow the evolution of resistance by weeds, pests, and pathogens,Expand

Fasciclin-like arabinogalactan proteins: specialization for stem biomechanics and cell wall architecture in Arabidopsis and Eucalyptus.
The ancient cell adhesion fasciclin (FAS) domain is found in bacteria, fungi, algae, insects and animals, and occurs in a large family of fasciclin-like arabinogalactan proteins (FLAs) in higherExpand

Eucalyptus has a functional equivalent of the Arabidopsis floral meristem identity gene LEAFY
Two genes cloned from Eucalyptus globulus, Eucalyptus LeaFy (ELF1 and ELF2), have sequence homology to the floral meristem identity genes LEAFY from Arabidopsis and FLORICAULA from Antirrhinum. ELF1Expand

Gene expression in Eucalyptus branch wood with marked variation in cellulose microfibril orientation and lacking G-layers.
In response to gravitational stresses, angiosperm trees form tension wood in the upper sides of branches and leaning stems in which cellulose content is higher, microfibrils are typically alignedExpand

Allelic Variation in Cell Wall Candidate Genes Affecting Solid Wood Properties in Natural Populations and Land Races of Pinus radiata
Forest trees are ideally suited to association mapping due to their high levels of diversity and low genomic linkage disequilibrium. Using an association mapping approach, single-nucleotideExpand

Quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis of wood quality traits in Eucalyptus nitens
To identify the chromosomal regions affecting wood quality traits, we conducted a genome-wide quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis of wood quality traits in Eucalyptus nitens. This information isExpand

Review of gene movement by bats and birds and its potential significance for eucalypt plantation forestry
Summary Pollen-and/or nectar-feeding lorikeets and bats and nectar-feeding honeyeaters, while less frequent visitors to eucalypt flowers than insects, may make a unique contribution to eucalyptExpand

Quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis of growth and vegetative propagation traits in Eucalyptus nitens full-sib families
Tree growth and vegetative propagation are complex but important traits under selection in many tree improvement programmes. To understand the genetic control of these traits, we conducted aExpand

beta-tubulin affects cellulose microfibril orientation in plant secondary fibre cell walls.
Cellulose microfibrils are the major structural component of plant secondary cell walls. Their arrangement in plant primary cell walls, and its consequent influence on cell expansion and cellularExpand
