    ABSTRACT: This study was conducted to investigate the photosynthetic characters of Populus albaglandulosa cuttings in response to elevated concentration and air temperature for selecting tree species adaptive to climate change. The cuttings were grown in environment controlled growth chambers with two combinations of concentration and air temperature conditions: (i) + 380 (control) and (ii) + 770 (elevated) for almost three months. The cuttings under the elevated treatment showed reduced tree height and photosynthetic pigment contents such as chlorophyll and carotenoid. In particular, the elevated treatment resulted in a marked reduction in the chlorophyll a closely associated with fixative reaction system. Different levels of reduction in photosynthetic characters were found under the elevated treatment. A decrease was noted in photochemical reaction system parameters: net apparent quantum yield (7%) and photosynthetic electron transport rate (14%). Moreover, a significant reduction was obvious in fixative reaction system parameters: carboxylation efficiency (52%) and ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate(RuBP) regeneration rate (24%). These results suggest that the low level of photosynthetic capacity may be attributed to the decreased fixative reaction system rather than photochemical reaction system.

    ABSTRACT: This study aimed to investigate the growth and physiological characters of Liriodendron tulipifera seedlings in responses to two different levels of elevated air temperature and concentration. The seedlings were grown in environment-controlled growth chambers with two combinations of air temperature and conditions: (1) + ambient and (2) + . Physiological characters such as growth, photosynthesis, and water use efficiency, were monitored for 85 days. The seedlings under the elevated treatment showed a greater amount of growth in tree height, compared with those under the control. Regarding the characteristics of assimilatory organs, the elevated treatment resulted in a greater amount of total leaf area, leaf unfolding, and dry weight per leaf area. No significant differences were found in photosynthesis capacity between the two treatments. The increase in water use efficiency with increased intercellular partial pressure appeared overall lower in the seedling under the elevated treatment, compared with those under the control. The total leaf area of the seedlings under the elevated treatment was larger than that under the control, indicating a higher amount of photosynthesis. In addition, an increase of root growth was noted under the elevated treatment. A resistance mechanism of water stress may be attributed to a higher amount of organ growth as well as the tree height under the elevated treatment than the control.

    ABSTRACT: A novel fluorescent sensor 1 (1 = 10-(2-(((pyridin-2-yl)methylamino)methyl)phenol)methyl-anthracene) for trivalent cations has been synthesized and characterized. Both UV-vis and fluorescence spectroscopic studies demonstrated that the new receptor 1 was highly sensitive and selective toward trivalent cations, while there was no response to monovalent and divalent cations in methanol. Upon binding with trivalent cations, the emission bands of 1 red-shifted for all the trivalent cations from 411 nm to 421 nm and their fluorescence intensities were enhanced. In particular, Fe3+ could be obviously discriminated from Fe2+. The binding modes of 1 and the trivalent cations (M3+ ions) were found to be 1:1 and confirmed by Job plot, H-1 NMR titration and ESI-mass spectrometry analysis.

    ABSTRACT: To investigate the responses of yellow poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera L.) seedlings to the interactive effects of the elevated atmospheric level and nitrogen addition, we measured biomass, photosynthetic pigments, photosynthesis, and the contents of nitrogen (N) and carbon (C) from the seedlings after 16 weeks of the treatments. Yellow poplar seedlings were grown under the ambient () and the elevated (560 and ) CO2 concentratoins with three different N addition levels (1.2, 2.4, and ) in the Open Top Chambers (OTC). The dry weight of the seedlings enhanced with the increased N levels under the elevated concentrations and the increment of the dry weight differed among the different N levels. Photosynthetic pigment content of the yellow poplar leaves also increased with the increase of the concentration levels. The effects of the N levels on the photosynthetic pigment content, however, were significantly different among the levels. Photosynthetic rates were affected by the levels of and N concentrations. Stomatal conductance and transpiration rates increased with increasing concentration. The carboxylation efficiency of the seedlings without N addition increased under the higher concentrations whereas that with N addition decreased under the elevated concentrations. Nitrogen and carbon uptake in leaf, stem, and root increased with the elevated concentration level and N addition. In conclusion, under the elevated concentrations, physiological characteristics and carbon uptake of the yellow poplar seedling were improved and increased with N addition.

    ABSTRACT: This study was carried out to investigate the effect of slurry composting and biofiltration (SCB) liquid fertilizer amendment on the growth, photosynthetic rate, stomatal conductance, transpiration rate, heavy metal uptake and pigment concentration of Populus alba × glandulosa grown on Cd-and Pb-contaminated soil. Plants were grown under four test conditions: control, Cd-Pb treatment, SCB fertilization and combination of Cd-Pb treatment and SCB liquid fertilization. SCB fertilization enhanced the above-ground dry matter of P. alba × glandulosa grown in Cd-Pb treated soil. On the other hand, physiological parameters such as photosynthetic rate, stomatal conductance and transpiration rate of Cd-and Pb-treated seedlings showed lower values than those seedlings grown under controlled condition. Higher contents of photosynthetic pigment were observed in the leaves of SCB-treated seedlings and the positive effect of SCB fertilization on Cd uptake implying phytoextraction potential of Cd, but not with Pb which was considered less mobile in soil. In conclusion, the application of SCB liquid fertilizer significantly affected the mobility and bioavailability of metals in soil as reflected in the altered Cd and Pb uptake, which in turn affected the phytoextraction potential of P. alba × glandulosa grown in Cd-Pb treated soil.

    ABSTRACT: 3D surface profiling and high resolution imaging were performed to refine the Florin rings and epicuticular wax crystals of Pinus koraiensis needles. Needles were collected from four-year-old seedlings and air-dried for surface observations. Field emission scanning electron microscopy revealed that stomata were found on the abaxial (lower) surface of needles. Measured as ca. 40 μm long, they were largely elliptical or oval-shaped. Epicuticular wax crystals were present in the epistomatal chambers as well as on the surrounding epidermis. Rodlets were prevalently found on the stomatal bands and furrows as well as within the epistomatal chambers. The presence of wax tubules was ascertained by the distinct terminal openings at their ends. The occurrence of wax ridges was evident on the epidermis near the saw-tooth margins (nonstomatal areas). No distinct wax ridges were detected on the dewaxed needles. Raised Florin rings were distinct on the stomata. White light scanning interferometry showed that the diameter and width of stomata were ca. 44.02 ± 3.33 μm and 32.10 ± 3.30 μm, respectively. Measured from the neighboring epidermis to the stomatal aperture, the mean height of the stoma reached ca. 6.23 ± 1.28 μm. Focus variation metrology allowed measuring the mean elevation angle of the stoma, reaching ca. 41.41 ± 11.25°. This is the first report on a novel approach to the establishment of quantitative criteria of Florin ring classification by nontactile 3D surface profiling beyond the previous qualitative descriptions of Florin rings of coniferous species.

    ABSTRACT: The main purpose of this study was to examine the influence of treatment amounts of Slurry Composting and Biofiltration liquid fertilizer (SCBLF) on biomass growth of Yellow poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera) and to compare bioethanol production from the harvested wood. Relative growth rate, biomass production and leaf characteristics were significantly enhanced by SCBLF treatment and medium treatment plot showed highest value. Nitrogen compounds and water content in SCBLF affected to increase chlorophyll contents which led improving biomass production (64.67%) and glucose contents (6.07%) than control. Organosolv and dilute acid pretreatments were preliminarily carried for bioethanol production, and the pretreatment processes were conducted at all the same solid to liquid ratio (1 : 10), reaction temperature (), preheating time (40 min) and residence time (10 min). The water insoluble solid recovery of Organosolv pretreatment with 1% sulfuric acid as a catalyst was the lowest and that of medium treatment plot was 44.81%. Exchangeable cations in SCBLF might be affected to increase pretreatment effect. The simultaneous saccharification and fermentation process was followed to determine the ethanol production of the pretreated biomass. The highest ethanol production yield based on initial weight was obtained from high treatment plotby Organosolv pretreatment with 1% sulfuric acid (16.11%). But regarding biomass production, medium treatment plot produced most, and bioethanol production was increased by 72.93% than control.

    ABSTRACT: Morphology of foliar trichomes was analyzed in Quercus variabilis by electron microscopy and three-dimensional surface profiling. Leaves from suppressed or dominant sprouts of the oak species were collected after a forest fire to unravel the effects of the disturbance factor on sprouting of the oak species. Scanning electron microscopy revealed two types of trichomes depending on the leaf surface. The trichomes on the adaxial surface were branched and constricted, and possessed a single row of thin-walled cells with a collapsed morphology (glandular branched uniseriate trichomes). Meanwhile, the trichomes on the abaxial surface were star-shaped, unfused with each other, and had 6 to 10 rays (nonglandular simple stellate trichomes). An apparent proliferation of trichomes was evident on the adaxial surface of the dominant sprouts. Uniseriate trichomes could be discernable as an elevation from the surface by white light scanning interferometry. By transmission electron microscopy, thin and convoluted cell wall, degenerated cytoplasm, and a single row of cells were characteristic of the trichomes on the adaxial surface. The thick cell walls of the mature trichomes on the abaxial surface represented the nonglandular nature. This is the first report on the morphological and ultrastructural characterization of foliar trichomes of the oak species.

    ABSTRACT: Effects of seawater spray on leaf structure were investigated in Quercus acutissima by electron microscopy and X-ray microanalysis. Two-year-old seedlings of Q. acutissima were sprayed with seawater and kept in a greenhouse maintained at 25°C. The most recognizable symptoms of seawater-sprayed seedlings included leaf necrosis, crystal deposition, stomatal clogging, and chloroplast degeneration. Field emission scanning electron microscopy revealed that the leaf surface was covered with additional layers of remnants of seawater spray. Composed of sodium and chloride, cube-shaped crystals (halite) were prevalently found on trichomes and epidermis, and formed aggregates. Meanwhile, wedge-shaped crystals were deposited on epidermis and consisted of calcium and sulfur. As a result of stomatal clogging by crystal deposition on the abaxial surface, it was conceivable that plant respiration became severely hampered. Transmission electron microscopy showed degenerated cytoplasm of seawater-sprayed leaves. It was common to observe severe plasmolysis and disrupted chloroplasts with a reduced number of thylakoids in grana. These results indicate that foliar applications of seawater were sufficient to induce necrosis of Q. acutissima seedlings as an abiotic disturbance factor.

    ABSTRACT: In the title compound, {[Ni(C(12)H(10)N(2))(H(2)O)(4)](NO(3))(2)}(n), the Ni(II) ion, lying on a crystallographic inversion center, has a distorted octa-hedral coordination sphere comprising four water ligands and two N-atom donors from the trans-related 1,2-bis-(4-pyrid-yl)ethene ligands, which also have crystallographic inversion symmetry. These ligands bridge the Ni(II) complex units, forming chains extending along the [110] and [[Formula: see text]10] directions. The nitrate counter-anions stabilize the crystal structure through water-nitrate O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds.

    ABSTRACT: Three-dimensional surface topography of needle stomatal complexes was investigated in Pinus rigida, Pinus taeda, and their interspecific hybrid Pinus rigitaeda. The stomatal complexes of P. rigida appeared to be sunken and ca. 15 microm deep by white light scanning interferometry. Stomatal grooves were evident in P. taeda along the stomata and amounted to ca. 5 microm deep. The centers of stomata maintained the similar height to the stomatal apertures. Meanwhile, the stomatal complexes of P. rigitaeda (ca. 15 microm deep) were characterized by distinct stomatal grooves and sunken stomatal chambers. In addition, field emission scanning electron microscopy revealed the stomatal complexes of P. rigida partially filled with epicuticular waxes. It was common to observe distinct stomatal grooves and chamber-filled stomata on P. taeda needles. The stomatal complexes of P. rigitaeda had the distinct stomatal grooves and were partially filled with wax tubules and rodlets. Surface roughness measurements of stomatal complexes showed higher levels of roughness from P. rigida and P. rigitaeda than that from P. taeda. These results indicate that the hybrid species P. rigitaeda showed intermediacy in surface characteristics between the parent species, suggesting the genetic control of needle stomatal complexes in the hybrid species.

    ABSTRACT: In the title compound, [Zn(4)(C(11)H(9)N(2)O(2))(4)(C(7)H(5)O(2))(4)]·2(CH(3))(2)CO·CH(3)OH, the tetra-nuclear mol-ecule lies on a fourfold inversion axis. Zn(II) ions and μ(3)-O atoms in the cubane core occupy alternating vertices, forming two inter-penetrating tetra-hedra. Each Zn(II) ion is further coordinated by two N atoms from two different (py)(2)C(OH)O ligands (py is pyrid-yl) and one O atom from a monodentate benzoate ligand, forming a distorted octa-hedral environment. The (py)(2)C(OH)O ligand acts in an η(1):η(3):η(1):μ(3) manner, forming two five-membered ZnNCCO chelating rings with two different Zn(II) atoms sharing a common C-O bond, and an alkoxide-type bond to a third Zn(II) ion. There are four symmetry-related intra-molecular O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds between the two types of ligands. In the asymmetric unit, there is a half-occupancy acetone solvent mol-ecule and a half-occupancy methanol solvent molecule that lies on a twofold rotation axis.
