Clonal plants could modify phenotypic responses to nutrients heterogeneously distributed both in space and time by physiological integration. It will take times to do phenotypic responses to modifications which are various in different growth periods. An optimal phenotype is reached when there is a match between nutrient conditions and foraging ability. A(More)
Perennial ryegrass is an important turf grass and also used as a forage plant. However, abiotic stresses such as salt and drought are main limitations to its cultivation. In the present work, we cloned the gene encoding pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthetase (P5CS) from Lolium perenne, which is responsible for proline biosynthesis. This gene had a coding(More)
Soil nutrients are commonly heterogeneously distributed at different spatial scales. Although numerous studies have tested the effects of soil nutrient heterogeneity on growth of clonal plants producing either spreading ramets or clumping ramets, no study has examined the effects on the growth of clonal plants producing both spreading and clumping ramets(More)
