    Liang Chai1,2, Cheng Cui1, Benchuan Zheng1, Jinfang Zhang1, Jun Jiang1, Haojie Li1,2,*, Liangcai Jiang1,*

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.92, No.3, pp. 645-663, 2023, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2023.024717

    Abstract Nitrogen (N) is one of the basic nutrients and signals for plant development and deficiency of it would always limit the productions of crops in the field. Quantitative research on expression of N-stress responsive proteins on a proteome level remains elusive. In order to gain a deep insight into the proteins responding to nitrogen stress in rapeseed (Brassica napus L.), comparative proteomic analysis was performed to investigate changes of protein expression profiles from the root, stem and leaf under different N concentrations, respectively. More than 200 differential abundance proteins (DAPs) were detected and categorized into groups More >

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.92, No.1, pp. 209-223, 2023, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2022.023050


    To evaluate the effects of nitrogen (N) and irrigation coupling on the soil N distribution, plant N utilization, and fruit yield of rabbiteye blueberries (Vaccinium virgatum), a field experiment was designed using two factors (water and fertilizer application) with four levels of irrigation and three levels of fertilization, and a control. Under the different water and fertilizer combinations, N primarily accumulated in the leaves. Irrigation and N application within appropriate ranges (pure N ≤ 29 g/plant and irrigation volume ≤ 2.5 L/plant) significantly improved the blueberry fruit yield. Increases in water and N within these ranges

    Abstract Aiming at the in situ and mobile observation of urban environmental air pollution, a portable instrument using ultraviolet spectrum retrieval algorithm was developed based on the basis of Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS) and multiple-pass cell technique. Typical trace gas pollutants, NH3, SO2, and NO2, were explored using their optical spectral characteristics in deep ultraviolet wavelength range from 210 to 215 nm. The gas concentration was retrieved by Lambert-Beer's law and nonlinear least square method. With an optimized optical alignment, the detection limits of NH3, SO2, NO2 were estimated to be 2.2, 2.3, and 36.2 ppb, respectively. The More >

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.91, No.10, pp. 2211-2220, 2022, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2022.021382

    Abstract Metasequoia glyptostroboides (M. glyptostroboides) is a unique plant species related to relic flora in China. It plays a positive role in afforestation and its long-term protection with high paleoclimate research value. However, due to the nutrients-supply deficiency, it is a big challenge to cultivate the high-quality seedlings of M. glyptostroboides. In this study, a pot experiment in a greenhouse environment was carried out to identify the effect of N-exponential fertilization on the growth and nutrient distribution of M. glyptostroboides seedling. The M. glyptostroboides rooted seedlings with 12-month growth were chosen. Different N fertilizer levels with conventional fertilization (CF: 5.0 g seedling−1),… More >

    Muhammad Junaid Nazir1,2, Xiuwei Zhang1,*, Daolin Du2, Feihai Yu1

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.91, No.9, pp. 2087-2097, 2022, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2022.021412

    Abstract The decomposition of soil organic carbon (SOC) plays a critical role in regulating atmospheric CO2 concentrations and climate dynamics. However, the mechanisms and factors controlling SOC decomposition are still not fully understood. Here, we conducted a 60 days incubation experiment to test the effects of physical disturbance and nitrogen (N) addition on SOC decomposition. N addition increased the concentration of NO3- by 51% in the soil, but had little effect on the concentration of NH4+. N addition inhibited SOC decomposition, but such an effect differed between disturbed and undisturbed soils. In disturbed and undisturbed soils, application of… More >

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.18, No.2, pp. 417-430, 2022, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.018012

    Abstract Detailed information is provided for the design and construction of nitrogen drilling in a coal seam. Two prototype wells are considered. The Guo model is used to calculate the required minimum gas injection rate, while the Finnie, Sommerfeld, and Tulsa models are exploited to estimate the ensuing erosion occurring in pipe strings. The calculated minimum gas injection rates are 67.4 m3/min (with water) and 49.4 m3/min (without water), and the actual field of use is 90–120 m3/min. The difference between the calculated injection pressure and the field value is 6.5%–15.2% (formation with water) and 0.65%–7.32% (formation without More >
