Beneficial symbiotic microbes may contribute to plant invasions

Heat map of differentially abundant plant growth-beneficial functions

Plant-microbe interactions determine plant growth and productivity and therefore may mediate both the invasiveness of non-native plant species and the impacts that they have in invaded ecosystems. Previous research has shown that invasive Acacia dealbata populations in

Chemical priming: a way to increase plant protection against stress conditions in the field?

Abiotic stresses such as salinity, drought, flooding, heat, cold, freezing, excess light, UV radiation and heavy metal toxicity have a significant impact on plant growth and crop yield worldwide. Climate change continues to exacerbate the detrimental effects

Development of cheap, eco-friendly and sustainable amendments to improve plant growth

Phosphorus (P) is an essential nutrient for the growth and development of plants. Its limited availability due to the low solubility, often limits crop production. Therefore, soluble phosphate fertilizers are commonly applied to achieve maximum crop productivity.
