AbstractPlant biotrophic oomycetes cause significant production problems and economic losses in modern agriculture and are controlled by fungicide applications and resistance breeding. However, high genetic variability and fast adaptation of the pathogens counteract these measures. As a consequence of the “arms race,” new pathogen phenotypes recurrently occur and may rapidly dominate the population when selected through the pressure of control measures. Intensive monitoring with fast and reliabl...

AbstractHuanglongbing (HLB), previously known as citrus greening disease, is a devastating disease caused by gram negative, phloem-limited, fastidious bacteria Candidatus Liberibacter spp. HLB exists in nearly all commercially cultivated citrus, causing losses to growers by affecting tree vigor, production, fruit development, and quality. Recently, some promising HLB-tolerant germplasm has been identified, and showed particularly high concentration of metabolites, such as flavone, flavanone, ald...

AbstractLife on earth depends on the presence of photoautotrophic organisms that are able to input carbon into the ecosystems through the process of photosynthesis which, with a few specialized exceptions, takes place within the chloroplast. This organelle contains the most complex redox system in plants being composed of numerous players including thiol reductases, peroxidases, and glutathione-related enzymes. It seems likely that these proteins act together to adjust redox metabolism enabling ...

ABSTRACTIntrogression of spontaneous or induced mutations has been used to increase the levels and diversify the profile of antioxidants in many fruits including tomato. The high-pigment (hp) and old-gold (og) alleles exemplify this approach as attractive genetic resources suitable to inbred elite high-lycopene (HLY) tomato lines with improved color and nutritional attributes. Although several studies have been published on HLY tomatoes, a systematic analysis of the information on their agronomi...

AbstractLand plants evolved from freshwater charophyte algal ancestors during a single transition to the terrestrial environment. The six major lineages of land plants are divided into two groups: the bryophytes (liverworts, mosses, and hornworts) and the tracheophytes (lycophytes, ferns, and seed plants); while the tracheophytes are thought to be monophyletic, the bryophytes have typically been considered as the direct ancestors of tracheophytes and therefore an artificial, nonmonophyletic, gro...

ABSTRACTIdentifying discontinuous entities within species complexes is a major topic in systematic and evolutionary biology. Comprehensive inventories describing and identifying species rapidly and correctly before they or their habitats disappear is especially important in megadiverse regions, such as South America continent, where a large part of the biodiversity is still unknown and remains to be discovered. Species complexes may account for a substantial number of plant groups in the South A...

ABSTRACTMany of the earth's species-rich floras are fire-prone and current research is showing a key role for fire in their evolution and diversification. However the mechanisms by which fire might direct evolution at the cellular level are unknown. Mutagenesis is the foundation on which speciation is based and our literature survey shows that burning biomass may be a major source of potent mutagens in the form of heat, combustion products and recycled metals and radionuclides. Even mild heat ma...

AbstractAllohexaploid Brassica hybrids (2n = AABBCC) have been the subject of plant breeding and research for many years, both to increase our understanding of polyploid plant evolution and to benefit plant breeding. This review summarizes and evaluates the different approaches to producing these hybrids using the six interrelated crop species (three diploids and three allotetraploids) of the famous “U’s Triangle” as starting material. Special emphasis is given to cytogenetic and marker-based an...

AbstractMosses (division Bryophyta) are characterized by the dominance of haploid, poikilohydric gametophytes, and relatively persistent sporophytes that are dependent on the gametophyte generation. Because they are poikilohydric, tend to be desiccation tolerant, and have primarily ectohydric water uptake mechanisms, the ecological requirements of mosses tend to differ from those of vascular plants. We review recent research on phylogenetic relationships and morphological and ecological diversit...
