ABSTRACT: Japanese honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) was introduced outside of Asia in the early 19th century and is now invasive to varying degrees on every continent, except Anarctica, and many archipelagos. The basic ecology and life history of Japanese honeysuckle are well known and described here; however, research needs on the underlying causes of the voracity and subsequent ecological impacts of this species are many. Virtually all ecological experimentation with Japanese honeysuckle has been conducted in the southeastern U.S., thus more data are needed in other regions, particularly South America and Africa. Although Japanese honeysuckle is naturalized in many areas where it has been introduced, there still may be hope for the control of local infestations and its further spread in areas that have a fairly recent introduction history. Japanese honeysuckle may be secure throughout much of its introduced range, but land management principles that discourage its use and public education to prevent further dispersal are recommended strongly.Critical Reviews in Plant Sciences 08/2010; September-October 2004(Vol. 23):391-400.

ABSTRACT: Plant cells use various types of cell surface receptor molecules to sense extracellular signals and modulate cell-to-cell communication in many biological processes. Extracellular leucine-rich repeat (eLRR) receptor-like proteins (RLPs) represent an important class of such cell surface receptors. RLPs differ from receptor-like kinases (RLKs), which compose the largest class of cell surface receptors in many plant species, because they lack a cytoplasmic kinase domain. RLPs play roles in both developmental processes and disease resistance. A total of 57 RLP encoding genes has been identified in Arabidopsis. Two of them, CLAVATA2 (CLV2) and Too Many Mouths (TMM) have a function in meristem maintenance and stomatal distribution, respectively, whereas few others act in basal defense against pathogens. Although the function of most RLPs in Arabidopsis remains unclear, considerable progress has been made in understanding RLP functioning and signaling over the years. This review focuses on the function of RLPs in plants. Furthermore, the function of distinct RLP domains and the role of conserved residues important for perception and ligand specificity are discussed. The role of RLP proteins in multimeric complexes to sense biotic and abiotic extracellular signals is also addressed.Critical Reviews in Plant Sciences 01/2010; 29(5):285-299.

ABSTRACT: Improving food security, environmental preservation and enhancing livelihood should be the main targets of the innovators of today's farming systems. Conservation agriculture (CA), based on minimum tillage, crop residue retention, and crop rotations, has been proposed as an alternative system combining benefits for the farmer with advantages for the society. This paper reviews the potential impact of CA on C sequestration by synthesizing the knowledge of carbon and nitrogen cycling in agriculture; summarizing the influence of tillage, residue management, and crop rotation on soil organic carbon stocks; and compiling the existing case study information. To evaluate the C sequestration capacity of farming practices, their influence on emissions from farming activities should be considered together with their influence on soil C stocks. The largest contribution of CA to reducing emissions from farming activities is made by the reduction of tillage operations. The soil C case study results are not conclusive. In 7 of the 78 cases withheld, the soil C stock was lower in zero compared to conventional tillage, in 40 cases it was higher, and in 31 of the cases there was no significant difference. The mechanisms that govern the balance between increased or no sequestration after conversion to zero tillage are not clear, although some factors that play a role can be distinguished, e.g., root development and rhizodeposits, baseline soil C content, bulk density and porosity, climate, landscape position, and erosion/deposition history. Altering crop rotation can influence soil C stocks by changing quantity and quality of organic matter input. More research is needed, especially in the tropical areas where good quantitative information is lacking. However, even if C sequestration is questionable in some areas and cropping systems, CA remains an important technology that improves soil processes, controls soil erosion and reduces production cost.Critical Reviews in Plant Sciences 05/2009; 28(3):97-122.
