Rapid evolutionary responses to selection in heterogeneous environments among agricultural and nonagricultural weeds


, : Rapid evolutionary responses to selection in heterogeneous environments among agricultural and nonagricultural weeds. International Journal of Plant Sciences 166(4): 641-647

Agricultural settings are hypothesized to impose strong selection on invading weed species, and the direction of selection can be consistent across many generations, depending on crop-rotation schedules. Because the history of selection is often known, agricultural environments provide a useful experimental setting for studies testing mechanisms of adaptation and rates of evolutionary response.

In the circadian timing systems, input pathways transmit information on the diurnal environmental changes to a core oscillator that generates signals relayed to the body periphery by output pathways. Cryptochrome (CRY) protein participates in the...

The overall objective of this study was to investigate the potential impact on settled water quality of using cement kiln dust (CKD), a waste by-product, to replace quicklime in the active treatment of acidic mine water. Bench-scale experiments we...

The circulation of large amounts of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and its sulfated derivative (DHEA-S) suggests a physiological role in human physiology. In the central nervous system, DHEA is considered a neurosteroid with a wide range of functio...

The effects of vanadate on tension and on the Na-K pump in isolated guinea-pig aorta were investigated. Vanadates (NH4VO3 or Na3VO4 . nH2O) (10(-3) M) produced a sustained contraction (about 0.5 g) which was not influenced by phentolamine (10(-6)...
