Plants with labile sex expression often regulate the production of pistillate and staminate flowers on the basis of developmental and environmental conditions. In many monoecious plant species, developing fruits inhibit pistillate flower production and promote staminate flower production. Because the phytohormone ethylene promotes pistillate flower production in a variety of wild and cultivated plant species, we examined the influence of fruit development on internal ethylene production and… Expand
Effects of herbivory on internal ethylene production and sex expression in Cucurbita texana.
TLDR
Damaged plants produced fewer pistillate buds than undamaged plants, indicating that stress ethylene from simulated herbivory does not induce femaleness, and a second messenger that suppresses Pistillate bud production may be produced during damage. Expand
Effect of modified endogenous ethylene production on sex expression, bisexual flower development and fruit production in melon (Cucumis melo L.)
TLDR
Results provide a direct demonstration of the importance of endogenous ethylene production for female reproductive processes in melon. Expand
Involvement of Ethylene Biosynthesis and Signalling in the Transition from Male to Female Flowering in the Monoecious Cucurbita pepo
TLDR
The expression of the ethylene receptor and CTR-like genes in the apex of Veg and Bog plants indicates that these genes negatively regulate female flower transition during the earlier stages of plant development. Expand
Growth and Resource Allocation in Cucurbita pepo ssp. texana: Effects of Fruit Removal
Recent theory indicates that plants may be able to increase their fitness by adjusting the relative investment of resources in growth and reproduction, through the male or female function, inExpand
Effect of CRC::etr1-1 transgene expression on ethylene production, sex expression, fruit set and fruit ripening in transgenic melon (Cucumis melo L.)
TLDR
Insight is provided into the role of ethylene perception in carpel-bearing flower production, fruit set, fruit development, and ripening in cucurbits. Expand
Effects of the Spatial Pattern of Leaf Damage on Growth and Reproduction: Whole Plants
TLDR
Very few traits were affected by foliar damage, regardless of the spatial pattern of distribution, suggesting that these plants have a high tolerance to simulated herbivory. Expand
Pollinators and Reproductive Success of the Wild Cucurbit Cucurbita maxima ssp. andreana (Cucurbitaceae)
TLDR
This wild cucurbit is a generalist with respect to pollinator guild, and flower visitors seem to be highly efficient in pollen transference, and it is well adapted to disturbed habitats because plants ripened fruits successfully, regardless of the group of insects visiting flowers. Expand
New Insights into Reproductive Development in Melon (Cucumis melo L.)
TLDR
This review examines melon flower development with an emphasis on sex expression and development of carpelbearing flowers and discusses fruit development and ripening processes, including factors that contribute to production of high quality fruits such as sweetness, flavor, texture, and aroma. Expand
Hormonal interactions and gene regulation can link monoecy and environmental plasticity to the evolution of dioecy in plants.
TLDR
This review explores the roles of environmental stress and hormones on sex determination, and proposes a model that can explain the evolution of dioecy through monoecy, and the mechanisms of environmental sex determination. Expand
On the Impact of Zucchini Yellow and Watermelon Mosaic Viruses on the Production Rhythms of Transgenic ZW-20 and Nontransgenic Squash (Cucurbita pepo L.)
TLDR
The outcomes of this study sustain the hypothesis that ZYMV and WMV have no impact on the production rhythms of virus-resistant transgenic ZW-20 squash, but they do alter those of nontransgenic cv Pavo. Expand

Environmental and Physiological Effects on Pistillate Flower Production in Silene noctiflora L. (Caryophyllaceae)
TLDR
Results of this study show that plasticity in pistillate flower production in S. noctiflora is influenced by changes in temperature and ethylene, which may represent an adaptive mechanism to increase outcrossing when conditions are more favorable for pollinator activity. Expand
Sex Expression and the Production of Ethylene induced by Auxin in the Cucumber (Cucumis sativum L.)
TLDR
Evidence is found that cucumber plants treated with auxins or CEPA also produce ethylene, which, it is suggested, alters the sex expression of the treated plants. Expand
Leaf Carbohydrate Status and Enzymes of Translocate Synthesis in Fruiting and Vegetative Plants of Cucumis sativus L.
TLDR
The lower galactinol pools may be associated with an activation of the terminal step in stachyose biosynthesis in leaves in response to the high sink demand of a growing cucumber fruit. Expand
Architecture and Gender Allocation: Floral Sex Expression Along Branches of the Monoecious cucurbit, Apodanthera undulata
TLDR
Data indicate that male plants probably experience less favorable growing conditions than monoecious plants, and the distributions of staminate and pistillate buds along branches and the length of their associated internodes indicate that floral bud production is affected by the same factors that determine branch growth. Expand
MOVEMENT OF ETHYLENE FROM ROOTS TO SHOOTS, A FACTOR IN THE RESPONSES OF TOMATO PLANTS TO WATERLOGGED SOIL CONDITIONS
TLDR
Ethylene supplied to the roots is shown to promote adventitious rooting and downward rolling of the young leaf laminae and to modify the orientation of shoot growth in the tomato mutant‘diageotropica’. Expand
Ethylene evolution from cucumber plants as related to sex expression.
TLDR
The data suggest that ethylene participates in the endogenous regulation of sex expression by promoting femaleness. Expand
The Role of Ethylene in Interorgan Signaling during Flower Senescence
TLDR
Investigation of orchid (Cymbidium) flowers found ethylene produced in the stigmatic region following pollination or emasculation serves as a mobile factor responsible for senescence symptoms observed in other flower parts, but the results do not confirm the presumed role of ACC as a signal in interorgan communication during flowersenescence.
