Root anatomical phenes associated with water acquisition from drying soil: targets for crop improvement.
- Biology, MedicineJournal of experimental botany
Root anatomical phenes represent a promising yet underexplored and untapped source of crop breeding targets, and may have strong interactions with the spatiotemporal dynamics of soil water availability, and with root architecture and other aspects of the root phenotype.
Arterial Hypertension and Serum Uric Acid in Elderly- SEPHAR III Study.
- MedicineArquivos brasileiros de cardiologia
Age represented one of the factors contributing to the increased level of serum uric acid, and an increasing prevalence of arterial hypertension with age, together with a poor control of blood pressure was obtained.
What evidence exists on the effectiveness of the techniques and management approaches used to improve the productivity of field-grown tomatoes under conditions of water-, nitrogen- and/or phosphorus-deficit? A systematic map
