  1. 1. Low temperature acclimation in plants alterations in photosynthetic carbon metabolism

    University dissertation from Umeå : Fysiologisk botanik

    Author : Maria Lundmark; Umeå universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Plant physiology; cold acclimation; carbon metabolism; photosynthesis; respiration; Växtfysiologi; Physiological Botany; fysiologisk botanik;

    Abstract : Although low temperature plays an important role in determining agricultural yield, little is known about the effect on the underlying biochemical and physiological processes that influence plant growth. Photosynthesis and respiration are central to plant growth and both processes are heavily affected by temperature. READ MORE

  2. 2. Unravelling the complexity of cold acclimation in plants

    University dissertation from Umeå : Fysiologisk botanik

    Author : Aakash Chawade; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bioinformatics; cold acclimation; winter; oat; arabidopsis; stress; freezing; genetic networks; metabolomics;

    Abstract : Many plants respond to low non-freezing temperatures by increasing their freezing tolerance in a process known as cold acclimation. Microarray studies have shown that hundreds of genes are differentially expressed during the cold acclimation process in Arabidopsis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Acclimation of plants to combinations of abiotic factors connecting the lab to the field

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Zsofia Réka Stangl; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nitrogen; carbon dioxide; temperature; thermal acclimation; mycorrhiza; boreal forest; climate change; C:N balance; allocation; respiration; photosynthesis; terrestrial biosphere model;

    Abstract : Increasing atmospheric CO2 and other greenhouse gasses coupled to the accelerated rate of global warming puts plants and ecosystems under the strain of a rapidly changing abiotic environment. Understanding the impacts of changing global climate is a strong focus of plant science and the establishment of more resilient crop variants is an important goal for breeding programs. READ MORE

  4. 4. Physiological responses of marine and brackish Fucus vesiculosus L. with respect to salinity

    University dissertation from Sundsvall : Mittuniversitetet

    Author : Maria Gylle; Mittuniversitetet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; acclimation; Bothnian Sea; compatible solutes; desiccation; fluorescence; F. vesiculosus; F. radicans; immunoblot; mannitol; photosynthesis; Rubisco; salinity; Algfysiologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi;

    Abstract : The intertidal brown alga Fucus vesiculosus L. is mainly a marine species (34 practical salinity units, psu), but the alga also grows in the sublittoral of the brackish Bothnian Sea (part of the Baltic Sea; 5 psu). READ MORE

  5. 5. Thermal tolerance in teleost fish –importance of cardiac oxygen supply, ATP production and autonomic control

    University dissertation from Sundsvall : Mittuniversitetet

    Author : Andreas Ekström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; acclimation; coronary; CTmax; enzyme; global warming; heart; mitochondria;

    Abstract : Temperature tolerance is a key determinant of the resilience and adaptability of fish facing a warmer and more thermally variable future with climate change. Yet, the underlying physiological mechanisms determining the critical thermal maximum (CTmax) are poorly understood. READ MORE
