Details zum Produkt: The Alternative Growth and Defense: Resource Allocation at Multiple Scales in Plants

Articles of an international symposium take on the conflict of balancing different eco-physiological requirements of plants in the process sequence of resource allocation. Focus is on the trade-off between growth and stress defence with respective cost/benefit assessments. Growth is the precondition to ensuring competitive resource acquisition, and defence is the precondition to retaining these resources for the plant after incorporation. Recognizing the plant’s intensive exchange of resources with its abiotic and biotic environment, this integrated approach requires spatial and temporal process scaling. This is tested with regard to both the mechanistic and ecologically relevant clarification potential. The analysis of the process integration of the functional and structural plant and ecosystem-inherent biological organization levels (scales) is identified as the precondition for spatial and temporal pattern disclosure during the allocation sequence. These articles thereby achieve a new quality in a comprehensive, process-based, integrative understanding of “system biology”.

A monograph of Enterographa and Sclerophyton Sparrius, L: Monograph of Enterographa and Sclerophyton
A monograph of Enterographa and Sclerophyton Sparrius, L: Monograph of Enterographa and Sclerophyton
A monograph of the lichen genus Enterographa (Arthoniales: Roccellaceae) is presented. In its new circumscription, the genus comprises 35 species, including corticolous, foliicolous, saxicolous and lichenicolous species. It is mainly distributed in the tropics and shows a high degree of endemism in especially the foliicolous species. Spore ontogeny, size, septation, excipulum structure, secondary compounds and thallus structure proved to be the most important characters for delimitation of the species and genera. The genus Sclerophyton (Arthoniales: Roccellaceae) is enlarged to accommodate species with hyaline, macrocephalic spores, relatively thick septa, clavate-cylindrical asci and ascomata in pseudostromata formerly included in Enterographa and comprises 14 species. The genus Sclerophytonomyces (Arthoniales: Roccellaceae) is reinstated to accomodate species with wide paraphysoids and pigmented ascospores. The genus Llimonaea (Arthoniales: Roccellaceae) is enlarged with two species formerly included in Sclerophyton that possess ascomata with a well-developed and carbonized excipulum and pigmented ascospores. The following 18 new species are described: Dirina insulae-howensis, Enterographa albopunctata, E. elixii, E. kalbii, E. pertusarioides Groenhart ex Sparrius, E. seawardii Lücking & Henssen in Sparrius, E. sipmanii, E. tropica, E. zephyri, Sclerophyton aptrootii, S. desertorum, S. fluorescens, S. madagascariense, S. murex Egea & Torrente ex Sparrius, S. murifome, S. syncesioides, S. trinidadense and S. vertex. The following 10 new combinations are proposed: Dirina follmannii (C. W. Dodge) Sparrius, D. neozelandica (Redinger) Sparrius, Enterographa multilocularis (Müll. Arg.) Sparrius, Llimonaea californica (Tuck.) Sparrius, L. cerebriformis (Egea & Torrente) Sparrius, Mazosia leptosticta (Nyl.) Sparrius, Sarcographa maculata (A.W. Archer) Aptroot & Sparrius, Sclerophyton extenuatum (Nyl.) Sparrius, S. seriale (Ach.) Sparrius and Sclerophytonomyces circumscriptus (Taylor) Sparrius & P. James.

The genus Amphora is one of the larger genera belonging to the family Naviculaceae and includes about 350 taxa. It is a widespread genus with a few species occurring in freshwater and brackish water, and many species in marine habitats. Members of the genus are clearly distinguished from related genera. The characteristic, strongly dorsiventral frustule has raphe systems which lie close to the ventral margins of the valve. There is no taxonomic revision and clear definition of the genus Amphora based modern taxonomic criteria covering both freshwater to marine species. This study deal with the taxonomy the subgenus Amphora, for freshwater and marine species in Japan. In addition to the characters observable by light microscopy, characters revealed mainly by scanning and transmission electron microscopy, such as raphe system and the shape of dorsal marginal costa, were employed to establish the taxonomy of the taxa considerd herein. Eighteen taxa are recognized in this work. First, each taxon was observed in detail using SEM to expand current knowledge of its fine structure. Taxonomic identification was then confirmed with reference to type material or other historic collections. Among the taxa investigated here, four are new to science, one is a new combination and one is a new name. Ten of the taxa investigated here (Amphora barrowiana (Patr. et Freese) Nagumo comb. nov., A. copulata (Kützing) Schoeman et Archibald, A. hiromuii Nagumo sp. nov., A. inariensis Krammer, A. liriope Nagumo sp. nov., A. macedoniensis Nagumo sp. nov., A. ovalis Kützing., A. pediculus (Kützing) Grun., A. rotunda Skv., A. sibirica Skv. et Meyer) are from freshwaters habitats. Three (A. arenicola (Grun.) Cleve, A. javanica Schmidt, A. libyca Ehr.) are from brackish-water habitats and five (A. gigantea Grun., A. immarginata Nagumo sp. nov., A. marina W. Smith, A. plativalvata Nagumo nom. et stat. nov., A. schmidtii Grun.) are from marine habitats.

Taxonomic studies on saxicolous species of the genus Rinodina (lichenized Ascomycetes, Physciaceae) in the Southern Hemisphere with emphasis in Australia and New Zealand Kaschik, M: Taxonomic studies on saxicolous species of the g
This study revises the cosmopolitan saxicolous lichen species of Rinodina (Ascomycetes) in Australia and New Zealand, including maritime southern South America and subantarctic islands, based on morphological, anatomical and molecular data. The cosmopolitan genus Rinodina used to comprise 200 species (Hawksworth et al. 1995). In the meantime, approximately 250 species are known (Kirk et al. 2001), which are widely distributed in both hemispheres, from (ant)arctic to tropical regions. 29 saxicolous species occur in Australia and New Zealand. We expand on the revision of saxicolous species of Rinodina (with exception of the xanthone containing species R. thiomela and R. xanthomelana with yellow thalli) in southern Africa, carried out by Matzer & Mayrhofer (1996). The genus Rinodina belongs to the Ascomycetes, the biggest fungus group worldwide, where the ascus represents the most important character. The usually lichen-forming order of the Lecanorales includes 40 families, being characterised by apothecial ascomata and very variable ascospores. Within the family of the Physciaceae nom. cons. (Eriksson et al. 2003), the large genus Rinodina is heterogeneous (e.g. Hafellner et al. 1979, Mayrhofer 1982) because of a multitude of ascospore types. Different ascus types were described by Rambold et al. (1994). In recent years these results are confirmed by molecular phylogenetic studies by Grube & Arup (2001) and Helms et al. (2003).
Population Biology of Typha latifolia L. and Typha angustifolia L.
Population Biology of Typha latifolia L. and Typha angustifolia L.
Typha latifolia L. and T. Angustifolia L. are closely related emergent wetland plants native to Europe with a distribution in the temperate northern hemisphere. Both Typha species are common and widespread in Europe and often build mono-dominant stands. Because of their extensive distribution and commonness Typha communities form an important and widespread wetland type under more eutrophic conditions. The fast growth and biomass production makes Typha an alternative crop on fen soils under flooded conditions to harvest raw-material for the production of insulation products for the building trade. This study investigates the population biology of Typha latifolia and T. Angustifolia by performing different experiments and by observing the development of a planted stand in a constructed wetland in southern Germany. The population biology approach enables not only to study the effect of environmental factors but also to quantify them and to compare the dimension different factors have on growth and reproduction. Typha was studied following the plant´s life cycle from germination, over seedling establishment and growth to reproduction and death. The focus was set on the colonisation of new habitats, the population establishment and the first years of population development. Both species expressed high germination percentages and vegetative reproduction. Water depth and temperature had a significant effect on the germination percentage9eb and the establishment of seedlings. Both species displayed a fast clonal growth and colonised the surface rapidly within the first year after planting. The regression analyses suggested a strong dependence of proportion of generative shoots on shoot density in T. Angustifolia, while in T. Latifolia the percentage of generative shoots was predicted best by mean stand height in May. Typha spp. produced 800 to 1200 g dry-mass m-2 at harvest-time in winter. Combining the collected data on the different phases of the life cycle to a simple model enables to quantify the colonisation potential of the species. The colonisation model shows that Typha latifolia and T. Angustifolia differ in their reproductive success. Typha latifolia produces a ten-fold higher number of offspring under optimal conditions in the first season after establishment. Generally Typha latifolia expresses the characteristics of a pioneer with a very efficient generative reproduction, while T. Angustifolia is adapted to a more competitive strategy.
Il fiore blu di Anterivo
Il fiore blu di Anterivo
Questo bellissimo opuscolo traccia un profilo botanico e descrive la storia di una rara pianta locale da coltivazione. Per la precisione si tratta di una pianta che in Alto Adige porta il nome di ' Caffè di Anterivo ' e fra i botanici è conosciuta come Lupinus pilosus L. La coltivazione abituale di Lupinus pilosus L. come pianta endemica succedanea del caffè è documentata a partire dalla metà del XIX secolo nel paesino alpino di Anterivo, che si trova a ca. 24 km a sud di Bolzano, all’imbocco altoatesino della Valle di Fiemme. Questa pianta veniva coltivata per uso proprio o commerciale come surrogato del caffè e come pianta medicinale per problemi digestivi del bestiame. Con la diffusione del ' vero ' caffè in chicchi, a partire dagli anni 1950 e 1960, il fiore blu di Anterivo scompare dal paesaggio e con esso la bevanda ricavata dai suoi semi. Tuttavia la pianta è sopravvissuta in alcuni orti casalinghi di Anterivo e gode ora di grande interesse sia all’interno che al di fuori di Anterivo. La reintroduzione della coltivazione locale del caffè di Anterivo è avvenuta su iniziativa della Ripartizione per la formazione professionale agricola, forestale e di economia domestica della Provincia Autonoma di Bolzano. Per la ricerca sulle piante coltivate la ' scoperta ' del caffè di Anterivo in questo paesino altoatesino è stata una vera sorpresa. L’articolo, inizialmente edito in inglese nella rivista scientifica ' Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution ' e destinato agli esperti del settore, è stato ora pubblicato anche in tedesco e italiano per renderlo accessibile ad un pubblico di lettori più vasto.

Untersuchungen zur Mikromorphologie und chemischen Zusammensetzung der Cuticularwachse bei den Gattungen Calicorema, Arthraerua und Leucosphaera (Amaranthaceae) in Namibia
Untersuchungen zur Mikromorphologie und chemischen Zusammensetzung der Cuticularwachse bei den Gattungen Calicorema, Arthraerua und Leucosphaera (Amaranthaceae) in Namibia
Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit an den Amaranthaceen-Spezies der Gattungen Calicorema, Arthraerua und Leucosphaera sind die rasterelektronenmikroskopischen und chemischen Untersuchungen der Epi- und Intracuticularwachse. Die Materialentnahme soll in aufeinander folgenden Jahren an den natürlichen Standorten der Pflanzen in der Republik Namibia im Südwesten Afrikas erfolgen. Durch geeignete Auswahl der Standorte soll versucht werden, die auf sie einwirkenden Umweltfaktoren (abiotische Umwelt nach ELLENBERG 1996) entsprechend zu berücksichtigen. Mögliche Unterschiede zwischen den einzelnen Standorten, zwischen benachbarten Pflanzen und Wuchstypen wie "Alt- und Jungpflanze" 9b6sollen erfasst und vergleichend untersucht werden, einerseits im Hinblick auf die Mikromorphologie und die chemische Zusammensetzung der Cuticularwachse und andererseits, um die Zusammenhänge zwischen Chemie und Feinstruktur aufzeigen. Ein weiterer Gesichtspunkt ist die ökologische Bedeutung epicuticularer Wachse, denn diese Oberflächenstrukturen bilden eine "funktionelle Grenzschicht zwischen der lebenden Pflanze und ihrer Umwelt" (BARTHLOTT & WOLLENWEBER 1981). Mit der vorliegenden Arbeit wird daher gleichfalls das Ziel verfolgt, durch detaillierte Untersuchungen zur Oberflächenstruktur nicht nur die Zusammenhänge zwischen Mikromorphologie und chemischer Zusammensetzung der Cuticularwachse zu zeigen, sondern auch gleichzeitig einen Beitrag zu leisten zum besseren Verständnis der Ökologie dieser Arten, ihren Anpassungs- und Überlebensstrategien unter ariden Bedingungen.

Photosynthesis
Photosynthesis
Photosynthesis: Photobiochemistry and Photobiophysics is the first single-authored book in the Advances in Photosynthesis Series. It provides an overview of the light reactions and electron transfers in both oxygenic and anoxygenic photosynthesis. The scope of the book is characterized by the time frame in which the light reactions and the subsequent electron transfers take place, namely between =10-3 second. The book is divided into five parts: An Overview; Bacterial Photosynthesis; Photosystem II & Oxygen Evolution; Photosystem I; and Proton Transport and Photophosphorylation. In discussing the structure and function of various protein complexes, we begin with an introductory chapter, followed by chapters on light-harvesting complexes, the primary electron donors and the primary electron acceptors, and finally the secondary electron donors. The discussion on electron acceptors is presented in the order of their discovery to convey a sense of history, in parallel with the advancement in instrumentation of increasing time resolution. The book includes a large number of stereo pictures showing the three-dimensional structure of various photosynthetic proteins, which can be easily viewed with unaided eyes. This book is designed to be used as a textbook in a graduate or upper-division undergraduate course in photosynthesis, photobiology, plant physiology, biochemistry, and biophysics; it is equally suitable as a resource book for students, teachers, and researchers in the areas of molecular and cellular biology, integrative biology, microbiology, and plant biology.

Asymptote
Asymptote
Asymptote, an award-winning New York City -- based architectural firm, expands the boundaries of traditional architectural practice with work that ranges from buildings and urban design to computer-generated environments. Recognized internationally as both leading-edge architects and virtual-reality artists as well as sought-after critics and teachers, Asymptote partners Lise Anne Couture and Hani Rashid have emphasized research into cultural trends and technological influences as the core of their practice. The firm has completed or is overseeing projects around the world, with commissions as diverse as a trading floor for the New York Stock Exchange; a multimedia research park in Kyoto, Japan; a modular furniture system for the Knoll furniture company; a music theater in Graz, Austria; and a new center for art and technology for the Guggenheim Museum in SoHo, New York. Designed and written by the partners, Asymptote is the first book to fully document their "real world" (as opposed to virtual) projects.In mathematical terms, the word "asymptote" is defined as a line that a given curve gets closer and closer to, but never touches, as it gets further from the origin towards infinity. In architectural terms, Asymptote is the Manhattan-based architectural design and research practice established by Lise Anne Couture and Hani Rashid in 1989.Rashid and Couture's work is intriguing because it draws inspiration from a wide range of sources not traditionally associated with architecture -- among them the design of airline interiors, sporting equipment, and organic systems like seashells and honeycombs; and various means of communicating and disseminating information. Their projects areconcerned as much with light, speed, and traversing virtual boundaries as with "real-world" geometries and building systems. Hani Rashid is one of the founding instructors in the "paperless studio" curriculum at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, a progra
