Adaptive flexibility of enzymatic antioxidants SOD, APX and CAT to high light stress: The clonal perennial monocot Iris pumila as a study case.
High solar radiation has been recognized as one of the main causes of the overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and oxidative stress in plants. To remove the excess of ROS, plants useExpand

Phenotypic plasticity in response to environmental heterogeneity contributes to fluctuating asymmetry in plants: first empirical evidence
Fluctuating asymmetry (FA) is widely used to quantify developmental instability (DI) in ecological and evolutionary studies. It has long been recognized that FA may not exclusively originate from DIExpand

How do plants cope with oxidative stress in nature? A study on the dwarf bearded iris (Iris pumila)
Oxidative stress results from incongruity between the generation of toxic reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the availability of their scavengers—antioxidants. Although the short-term effects of thisExpand

Differential expression of heat-shock proteins Hsp70 and Hsp90 in vegetative and reproductive tissues of Iris pumila
Tissue-specific variation in Hsp70 and Hsp90 expression was studied in vegetative (leaf) and reproductive organs (floral tube, ovary and stamen) of Iris pumila plants originating from a sun-exposedExpand

Toxic, Oviposition Deterrent and Oxidative Stress Effects of Thymus vulgaris Essential Oil against Acanthoscelides obtectus
Simple Summary Compounds of botanical origin, including essential oils (EOs), which coevolved as plant defense mechanism against herbivores and pathogens have been proposed as a promising strategyExpand
