The effect of excess sulfate supply on iron accumulation in three graminaceous plants at the early vegetative phase
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2016)
In recent years it has been established a significant relationship between sulfur (S) and iron (Fe) nutrition. In particular, it has been demonstrated that S deprivation can hinder Fe acquisition in barley, maize and wheat. ...
How do plants - having different exudation patterns - shape a similar microbial community?
Microorganisms associated with plants have been shown to improve plant growth and yield participating in the biogeochemical cycles of elements in soil. For these reasons, the rhizosphere microbiome is considered one of the ...
Iron deficiency in barley plants: phytosiderophore release, iron translocation, and DNA methylation
All living organisms require iron (Fe) to carry out many crucial metabolic pathways. Despite its high concentrations in the geosphere, Fe bio-availability to plant roots can be very scarce. To cope with Fe shortage, plants ...
Selenium Biofortification in Fragaria x ananassa: Implications on Strawberry Fruits Quality, Content of Bioactive Health Beneficial Compounds and Metabolomic Profile
(FRONTIERS MEDIA SA, 2017)
Selenium (Se) is an essential nutrient for humans, due to its antioxidant properties, whereas, to date, its essentiality to plants still remains to be demonstrated. Nevertheless, if added to the cultivation substrate, ...
The effect of cover crops in alleviating copper toxicity in grapevine plants
(Future IPM 3.0, 2017)
Common reeds (Phragmites australis) as sustainable energy source: experimental and modelling analysis of torrefaction and pyrolysis processes
The aim of this study is to apply advanced analytical techniques and kinetic modelling to common reeds (Phragmites australis) to characterize its pyrolysis and torrefaction as possible environmental friendly and sustainable ...
Hydrothermal carbonization of sewage sludge: char characterization and reference to international legislations
(ECI conference, 2017)
The aim of this work is to apply Hydrothermal Carbonisation (HTC) to different kinds of sludge such as thickened sludge, digested sludge and dewatered sludge, and compare the composition of the solid produced by the process, ...
