Leaf nitrogen and phosphorus stoichiometry of Quercus species across China
Principal component analysis (PCA) revealed that the first PCA axis, which reflected the temperature and evaporation variations along the altitude and longitude, had good relationships with leaf N and P concentrations and N:P ratio. Expand
Leaf nitrogen and phosphorus stoichiometry across forty-two woody species in Southeast China
The results provide a theoretical guideline for the construction and management of coastal shelter forests in Southeast China and find that 27 species were found to be limited by N, one by P, one co-limited by N and P, and the rest not limited by either N or P. Expand
Latitudinal patterns of leaf N, P stoichiometry and nutrient resorption of Metasequoia glyptostroboides along the eastern coastline of China.
It is suggested that leaf N, P stoichiometry and NRE displayed similar latitudinal patterns at regional scale when studied for a given species (this study) or multi-species (previous studies). Expand
Tree stoichiometry and nutrient resorption along a chronosequence of Metasequoia glyptostroboides forests in coastal China
Abstract Variations in carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) stoichiometry and nutrient resorption during stand development are essential indicators for assessing forest degradation. Yet, theirExpand
Effects of iron toxicity on the morphological and biological characteristics of rice root border cells
Fe2+ toxicity hindered the development of root border cells of both rice cultivars, but the Fe2+ sensitive variety experienced thickened the root cap cell walls that led to programmed cell death. Expand
Photosynthetic and physiological responses of native and exotic tidal woody seedlings to simulated tidal immersion
Findings indicate that H. hamabo has a better ability to keep the reduction of photosynthesis at a minimum through soluble substance regulated osmotic potential and avoiding excess light damage to the photosynthetic system through increased photorespiration, heat dissipation, chlorophyll fluorescence. Expand
[Latitude variation mechanism of leaf traits of Metasequoia glyptostroboides in eastern coastal China].
The results showed that the leaf length, leaf width and leaf perimeter increased with increasing latitude, while the leaf area and SLA firstly increased and then decreased, with the increase of soil N content. Expand
Potential Mechanism of Detoxification of Cyanide Compounds by Gut Microbiomes of Bamboo-Eating Pandas
A comparative analysis of 94 gut metagenomes revealed that bamboo-eating pandas’ gut microbiomes were significantly enriched in putative genes coding for enzymes related to cyanide degradation compared with the gut microbiome of typical herbivorous mammals, which might have coevolved with their special bamboo diets. Expand
Patterns of leaf nitrogen and phosphorus stoichiometry among Quercus acutissima provenances across China
There were significant differences in leaf N and P concentrations as well as in N:P ratios among 31 Quercus acutissima provenances, and a lower variation in leaf stoichiometry within the species when environmental influence was exclude in a common garden. Expand
Effects of stand structure on wind speed reduction in a Metasequoia glyptostroboides shelterbelt
In a Metasequoia glyptostroboides coastal forest shelterbelt near Shanghai, China, we studied relationships between stand structure and wind shelter effect. We located 16 plots at intervals of 500 mExpand
