The seesaw effect of winter temperature change on the recruitment of cotton bollworms Helicoverpa armigera through mismatched phenology
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2015)
Knowing how climate change affects the population dynamics of insect pests is critical for the future of integrated pest management. Rising winter temperatures from global warming can drive increases in outbreaks of some ...
A geometrical model for testing bilateral symmetry of bamboo leaf with a simplified Gielis equation
(Wiley Open Access, 2016)
The size and shape of plant leaves change with growth, and an accurate description of leaf shape is crucial for describing plant morphogenesis and development. Bilateral symmetry, which has been widely observed but poorly ...
Spatial segregation facilitates the coexistence of tree species in temperate forests
Competition between plants has an important role during the natural succession of forest communities. Niche separation between plants can reduce such interspecific competition and enable multispecies plant to achieve ...
Why does not the leaf weight-area allometry of bamboos follow the 3/2-power law?
(Frontiers Media, 2018)
The principle of similarity (Thompson, 1917) states that the weight of an organism follows the 3/2-power law of its surface area and is proportional to its volume on the condition that the density is constant. However, the ...
Scaling relationships between leaf shape and area of 12 rosaceae species
Leaf surface area (A) and leaf shape have been demonstrated to be closely correlated with photosynthetic rates. The scaling relationship between leaf biomass (both dry weight and fresh weight) and A has been widely studied. ...
Effects of salt stress on the leaf shape and scaling of pyrus betulifolia bunge
Leaf shape can reflect the survival and development of plants in different environments. In particular, leaf area, showing a scaling relationship with other leaf-shape indices, has been used to evaluate the extent of salt ...
