Microcalorimetric, gasometric, and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) methods have been used to evaluate heat production, gas exchange, and root membrane permeability in dandelion of different morphological forms from populations exposed to different levels of air pollution. The results show that these forms differ in the level of energy metabolism and that the form with a higher metabolic level (T. off. f. dahlstedtii) is more tolerant of air pollution with motor vehicle exhausts.

TLDR
It was found that the average values of effective copper sulfate concentrations inhibiting root growth in seedlings by 10, 50, and 90%, did not differ between the study areas and between the morphological forms of dandelion.

Analysis of adaptive capacities of plants in the zone of technogenic impact

TLDR
The processes involving considerable expenditures for repair, transcription, and translation were shown to be of critical importance for the formation of radiosensitivity in the seed progeny of dandelion seedlings exposed to contamination with cement dust.

Analysis of Local Dandelion (Taraxacum officinales.l.) Cenopopulations from Radioactively Contaminated Zones

TLDR
Local dandelion (Taraxacum officinales) populations were studied in the areas of the Eastern Ural Radioactive Trace and the floodplain of the Techa River in its upper reaches for both stimulation and inhibition of growth processes.

A comparative study of the seed progeny of dandelions was performed with samples from cenopopulations growing for a long time under conditions of radioactive contamination (the zone of the Eastern

Viability of Taraxacum officinale seeds after anthesis

TLDR
The management of Taraxacum officinale in lawns can be improved by understanding the timing of seed maturation, which increased with elapsed time since the end of flowering and decreased when calendar time was converted to thermal time expressed as day degrees above a 0°C base temperature.

Adaptations to Environmental Stresses.

TLDR
Investigating plants under stress can learn about the plasticity of metabolic pathways and the limits to their functioning, and questions of an ecological and evolutionary nature need investigation.

TLDR
Isothermal microcalorimetry is a promising method for convenient and rapid determination of varietal differences in response to increasing salinity.

TLDR
Antixenosis was confirmed to be a factor in the resistance of S. alba, but this species also proved to be most tolerant of feeding damage and showed rapid compensatory growth at three early growth stages, which probably accounts for its resistance to moder...
