    • Water Deficit Modulates the Relationship between Temperature and Unsaturated Fatty Acid Profile in Soybean Seed Oil 

      Carrera, Constanza Soledad; Dardanelli, Julio Luis (Crop Science Society of America, 2017-08-23)
      Soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.], a major source of vegetable oil worldwide, contains unsaturated fatty acids (UFA) beneficial for human health, leading to the use of soybean oil in nutraceuticals. The objective of this ...
    • Wheat curl mite, Aceria tosichella, and transmitted viruses: an expanding pest complex affecting cereal crops 

      Navia, Denise; Mendonça, Renata Santos de; Skoracka, Anna; Szydło, Wiktoria; Knihinicki, Danuta; Hein, Gary L.; Pereira, Paulo Roberto Valle da Silva; Truol, Graciela Ana Maria; Lau, Douglas (Springer, 2013-02)

    • Why are Chloris gayana leaves shorter in salt-affected plants? Analyses in the elongation zone 

      Ortega, Leandro Ismael; Fry, Stephen C.; Taleisnik, Edith (Society for Experimental Biology, 2006-11)
      Reduced hydraulic conductance calculated from growth data was suggested to be the main reason for reduced leaf expansion in salt-stressed Chloris gayana (Rhodes grass). In this work, xylem vessel cross-sections and wall ...
