Nitric oxide (NO) is an important biological messenger in plants, which has been implicated in response to abiotic stress. To study the effects of exogenous NO on drought menace, the tube seedlings of Dendrobium huoshanense were selected and treated with 10% polyethylene glycol (PEG-6000) to simulate drought stress. After application of sodium nitroprusside(More)
We describe a new remote sensing system called the Short Wave Aerostat-Mounted Imager (SWAMI). The SWAMI is designed to acquire co-located video imagery and hyperspectral data to study basic remote sensing questions and to link landscape level trace gas fluxes with spatially and temporally appropriate spectral observations. The SWAMI can fly at altitudes up(More)
Brown cotton is a kind of naturally colored cotton. Because of less processing and little dying, it is more friendlier to environment than white cotton. For brown cotton, pigment accumulation in fiber is one of the most important characteristics. In this study, we selected a brown fiber line and a white fiber cultivar to determine the factor that affects(More)
Canker caused by the Ascomycete Valsa mali is the most destructive disease of apple in Eastern Asia, resulting in yield losses of up to 100%. This necrotrophic fungus induces severe necrosis on apple, eventually leading to the death of the whole tree. Identification of necrosis inducing factors may help to unravel the molecular bases for colonization of(More)
The mechanism of biocontrol agent Saccharothrix yanglingensis Hhs.015 action against Valsa mali, a major apple Valsa canker pathogen, was examined using a novel, sensitive (minimum detection limit 100 pg/μL) and reliably RT-qPCR technique. Prior to lesion formation, total concentration of V. mali in the bark showed a significant decrease (p<0.05) after 24 h(More)
Mushrooms have the ability to accumulate high concentrations of heavy metals, which gives them potential for use as bioremediators of environmental contamination. The Pb2+ tolerance and accumulation ability of living mycelia of Flammulina velutipes were studied in this work. Mycelial growth was inhibited when exposed to 1 mM Pb2+. The colony diameter on(More)
BACKGROUND Tillage practices greatly affect carbon (C) stocks in agricultural soils. Quantification of the impacts of tillage on C stocks at a regional scale has been challenging because of the spatial heterogeneity of soil, climate, and management conditions. We evaluated the effects of tillage management on the dynamics of soil organic carbon (SOC) in(More)
