A phylogenetic analysis and revised classification of the Monocotylidae Taschenberg, 1879 (Monogenea)
The Monocotylidae Taschenberg, 1879 is revised based on a cladistic analysis of relationships between the constituent species and genera. The monophyly of the family is supported by three apomorphicExpand

Ecology in the age of DNA barcoding: the resource, the promise and the challenges ahead
Ten years after DNA barcoding was initially suggested as a tool to identify species, millions of barcode sequences from more than 1100 species are available in public databases. While several studiesExpand

Cotton GhBAK1 mediates Verticillium wilt resistance and cell death.
Virus-induced gene silencing (VIGS) offers a powerful approach for functional analysis of individual genes by knocking down their expression. We have adopted this approach to dissect gene functionsExpand

Influence of Landscape Position, Soil Series, and Phosphorus Fertilizer on Cotton Lint Yield
Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) response to P fertilizer can vary within fields, making P recommendations difficult. Phosphorus response may be more predictable with variable-rate fertilization, whichExpand
