Silencing GhNDR1 and GhMKK2 compromises cotton resistance to Verticillium wilt.
It is shown that GhNDR1 and GhMKK2 are required for Verticillium resistance in cotton, and high throughput loss-of-function and gain- of-function assays for functional genomic studies in cotton are developed.
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 apomorphic
Towards a phylogeny of the flesh flies (Diptera: Sarcophagidae): morphology and phylogenetic implications of the acrophallus in the subfamily Sarcophaginae
Many of the clades in the analysis were supported primarily or exclusively by male genitalic character states, highlighting the importance of the male genitalia as a source of morphological characters for sarcophagine phylogeny.
Integrating Cotton and Beef Production to Reduce Water Withdrawal from the Ogallala Aquifer in the Southern High Plains
Agriculture in the Texas High Plains depends heavily on irrigation with water withdrawn from the Ogallala aquifer at nonsustainable rates. Our hypothesis was that integrating crop and livestock
Ecology in the age of DNA barcoding: the resource, the promise and the challenges ahead
An overview of potential uses of DNA barcoding relevant in the age of ecoinformatics is presented, including applications in community ecology, species invasion, macroevolution, trait evolution, food webs and trophic interactions, metacommunities, and spatial ecology.
Cotton GhBAK1 mediates Verticillium wilt resistance and cell death.
It is shown here that highly efficient VIGS was obtained in a cotton breeding line (CA4002) with partial resistance to Verticillium wilt, and GhMKK2 and GhVe1 are required for its resistance toVerticillia wilt.
Community assembly of Diptera following restoration of mined boreal bogs: taxonomic and functional diversity
It is suggested that active restoration is needed for the renewal of high species and trophic diversity in restored sites, although it is clear from environmental conditions and functional traits that the restored sites are not yet fully functioning peatlands 7 years after restoration.
Resistance to Thielaviopsis basicola in the cultivated A genome cotton
Comparative analysis was conducted on significant QTL regions to deduce the cotton–Arabidopsis synteny relationship and examine the correspondence between BRR QTL and Arabidopsis pathogen defense genes.
Remarkable fly (Diptera) diversity in a patch of Costa Rican cloud forest: Why inventory is a vital science.
The number of species of Diptera in tropical regions has been severely underestimated and the actual number may surpass the number ofspecies of Coleoptera.
Site-Specific Irrigation and Nitrogen Management for Cotton Production in the Southern High Plains
Upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) production in the Southern High Plains is usually limited by water and N. The most prevalent means of irrigation in this region is center-pivot, and injection
