    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.93, No.4, pp. 831-841, 2024, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2024.047560

    Abstract The responses of ecosystem nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) to drought are an important component of global change studies. However, previous studies were more often based on site-specific experiments, introducing a significant uncertainty to synthesis and site comparisons. We investigated the responses of vegetation and soil nutrients to drought using a network experiment of temperate grasslands in Northern China. Drought treatment (66% reduction in growing season precipitation) was imposed by erecting rainout shelters, respectively, at the driest, intermediate, and wettest sites. We found that vegetation nutrient concentrations increased but soil nutrient concentrations decreased along the… More >

    A Bibliometric Analysis Unveils Valuable Insights into the Past, Present, and Future Dynamics of Plant Acclimation to Temperature

    Yong Cui, Yongju Zhao, Shengnan Ouyang, Changchang Shao, Liangliang Li, Honglang Duan*

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.93, No.2, pp. 291-312, 2024, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2024.047281

    Abstract Plant temperature acclimation is closely related to maintaining a positive carbon gain under future climate change. However, no systematic summary of the field has been conducted. Based on this, we analyzed data on plant temperature acclimation from the Web of Science Core Collection database using bibliometric software R, RStudio and VOSviewer. Our study demonstrated that a stabilized upward trajectory was noted in publications (298 papers) from 1986 to 2011, followed by a swift growth (373 papers) from 2012 to 2022. The most impactful journals were Plant Cell and Environment, boasting the greatest count of worldwide citations… More >

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.92, No.11, pp. 3113-3131, 2023, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2023.029502

    Abstract Drought is one of the critical limitations to agricultural soils and crop plants. Scarcity of water is increasing due to climate change that lead to increasing threats to global food security. Therefore, ecofriendly and cost effective strategies are highly desirable for mitigating drought stress along with sustainable and smart agricultural production. The aim of the study was to mitigate DS using seed priming and exogenous supplementation of β-aminobutyric acid (BABA) in linseed (Linum usitatissimum L.). Different doses (0, 50, 100 and 150 µM) of BABA were used for seed priming agent and foliar spraying under three… More >

    Abstract Renewable energy exploitation is among the development strategies set by the government of Rwanda on the roadmap to 2023/2024 universal electricity access and the United Nations plans by 2030. Numerous previous studies on clean energy technologies in Rwanda have mostly focused on households’ usage but there are currently no studies describing the feasibility of clean energy technologies for financial institutions. The skepticism on renewable energy in Africa was previously reported by some personnel. Having realized that most SACCOs (Savings and Credit Co-Operatives) in Rwanda use diesel technology for backup/emergency electricity supply, taking consideration of abundant… More >

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.36, No.1, pp. 327-337, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.030910

    Abstract Climate change is the most serious causes and has a direct impact on biodiversity. According to the world’s biodiversity conservation organization, reptile species are most affected since their biological and ecological qualities are directly linked to climate. Due to a lack of time frame in existing works, conservation adoption affects the performance of existing works. The proposed research presents a knowledge-driven Decision Support System (DSS) including the assisted translocation to adapt to future climate change to conserving from its extinction. The Dynamic approach is used to develop a knowledge-driven DSS using machine learning by applying More >
