Article
Depending on resource availability plants exhibit a specific suite of traits. At the interspecific level these traits follow the leaf economic spectrum (LES), traits related to slow turnover when resources are poor and fast turnover when resources are plentiful. Limited data shows that within species, CO2 availability, low in the recent geologic pa...

With climate change and an ever-increasing human population threatening food security, developing a better understanding of the genetic basis of crop performance under stressful conditions has become increasingly important. Here, we used genome-wide association studies to genetically dissect variation in seedling growth traits in cultivated sunflow...
Article
Carbon dioxide and water are crucial resources for plant growth. With anthropogenic fossil fuel emissions, CO2 availability is and has been increasing since the last glacial maximum. Simultaneously water availability is expected to decrease and the frequency and severity of drought episodes to increase in large parts of the world. How plants respon...

With rising food demands, crop production on salinized lands is increasingly necessary. Sunflower (Helianthus annuus), a moderately salt tolerant crop, exhibits a trade-off where more vigorous, high-performing genotypes have a greater proportional decline in biomass under salinity stress. Prior research has found deviations from this relationship a...

Disruption of ion homeostasis is a major component of salinity stress's effect on crop yield. In cultivated sunflower prior work revealed a negative relationship between vigor and salinity tolerance. Here, we determined the association of elemental content/distribution traits with salinity tolerance, both with and without taking vigor (biomass in c...
Article
Stomata and leaf veins play an essential role in transpiration and the movement of water throughout leaves. These traits are thus thought to play a key role in the adaptation of plants to drought and a better understanding of the genetic basis of their variation and coordination could inform efforts to improve drought tolerance. Here, we explore pa...

Plant symbiosis with arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi provides many benefits, including increased nutrient uptake, drought tolerance, and belowground pathogen resistance. To develop a better understanding of the genetic architecture of mycorrhizal symbiosis, we conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of this plant-fungal interaction in cu...
Article
Generalised dose‐response curves are essential to understand how plants acclimate to atmospheric CO2. We carried out a meta‐analysis of 630 experiments where C3 plants were experimentally grown at different [CO2] under relatively benign conditions, and derived dose‐response curves for 85 phenotypic traits. These curves were characterised by form, p...

Abstract In the face of resource limitations, plants show plasticity in multiple trait ca...

Cultivated crops are expected to be less stress tolerant than their wild relatives, leading to efforts to mine wild relatives for traits to increase crop tolerance. However, empirical tests of this expectation often confound tolerance with plant vigor. We assessed whether wild and cultivated Helianthus annuus L. differed for salinity tolerance with...

With rising food demands, crop production on salinized lands is increasingly necessary. Sunflower, a moderately salt tolerant crop, exhibits a trade-off where more vigorous, high-performing genotypes have a greater proportional decline in biomass under salinity stress. Prior research has found deviations from this relationship across genotypes; the...

Disruption of ion homeostasis is a major component of salinity stress’s effect on crop yield. In cultivated sunflower prior work revealed a trade-off between vigor and salinity tolerance. Here we determined the association of elemental content/distribution traits with salinity tolerance, both with and without taking this trade-off into account. We...

Developing more stress‐tolerant crops will require greater knowledge of the physiological basis of stress tolerance. Here, we explore how biomass declines in response to salinity relate to leaf traits across 20 genotypes of cultivated sunflower (Helianthus annuus). Plant growth, leaf physiological traits and leaf elemental composition were assessed...

Plant responses to resource limitations can be interpreted within an economic framework of maximizing uptake of the most limiting resource. Here we examine biomass allocation, the effect of allometry, and coordination among allocational, morphological and anatomical traits in response to above and belowground resource limitation in cultivated sunfl...

Developing more stress-tolerant crops will require greater knowledge of the physiological basis of stress tolerance. Here we explore how the variation among twenty cultivated sunflower (Helianthus annuus) genotypes for biomass decline in response to increasing salinity relates to leaf traits and leaf trait adjustments. Genotypes were grown in the g...

Introduction: By using a diversity panel of 287 inbred lines of cultivated sunflower as a model (Mandel et al. 2011 Theor. Appl. Genet.) we investigated whether there is a genetic basis to trade-offs in performance under low nutrient stress and whether above and below-ground morphological and physiological traits can be used to predict that trade-o...

Sustaining agricultural production under adverse environmental conditions, such as drought, low nutrient stress, and high salinity, is a major challenge. To solve this problem, we need actionable genetic information to enable breeding efforts. Here, we describe the development of a platform for genome-wide association studies (GWAS) in sunflower. C...

Plant responses to carbon (C) and water availability are strongly connected. Thus, we can learn much about the responses of modern plants to rising atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) by studying their performance under a range of carbon and water availabilities, including very low CO2 as in past glacial periods. We hypothesized that, especially in sh...

Evolutionary adaptation to variation in resource supply has resulted in plant strategies that are based on trade-offs in functional traits. Here, we investigate, for the first time across multiple species, whether such trade-offs are also apparent in growth and morphology responses to past low, current ambient, and future high CO 2 concentrations....

According to the Shifting Defense Hypothesis, invasive plants should trade-off their costly quantitative defense to cheaper qualitative defense and growth due to the lack of natural specialist enemies and the presence of generalist enemies in the introduced areas. Several studies showed that plant genotypes from the invasive areas had a better qual...

A general understanding of the links between atmospheric CO2 concentration and the functioning of the terrestrial biosphere requires not only an understanding of plant trait responses to the ongoing transition to higher CO2 but also the legacy effects of past low CO2. An interesting question is whether the transition from current to higher CO2 can...

Cheilolejeunea rigidula (Nees et Mont.) R.M.Schust. (Lejeuneaceae) is very abundant and widespread in the Amazon, providing a great opportunity to investigate how populations are connected through dispersal. We were interested in whether distance and micro-habitat play a role in the dispersal of Cheilolejeunea rigidula. Individual shoots of the spe...
