The effect of air-polluting gases on plant metabolism

The "refereed" or "peer review" status of a journal comes from the Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory (http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com/), as supplied by the publisher. The term refers to the system of critical evaluation of manuscripts/articles by professional colleagues or peers. The content of refereed publications is sanctioned, vetted, or otherwise approved by a peer-review or editorial board. The peer-review and evaluation system is utilized to protect, maintain, and raise the quality of scholarly material published in serials. Publications subject to the referee process are assumed, then, to contain higher quality content than those that are not.

Competitive exclusion in herbaceous vegetation

Author: Grime, JP (1973) Nature 242:344-347. HERO ID: 3354688

[More] In maintaining or reconstructing types of herbaceous vegetation in which the density of flowering plants exceeds 20 species/m2-the so-called ``species-rich'' communities, success is often frustrated by competitive exclusion. Here I describe an attempt to identify criteria with which to assess or anticipate the effect of competitive exclusion both at individual sites and in different types of vegetation.

Changes of pH after addition of increasing quantities of acid and base to homogenized needles of spruce (picea abies [L.] Karsten) are tested and compared as expression of their buffer capacity. Above all buffering is considered in the pH range of homogenisates. 2. Buffer capacity showes in its formation a characteristical fluctuating course the year round: one maximum in May and a second in July. Furthermore there is a third but small one against H⁺ before young needles are peeping out. 3. Buffer capacity is diminishing when needles growing older. 4. Needles fumigated with SO₂ are usually less buffered than not damaged ones. Trees growing in city atmosphere are showing also a less buffer capacity compared with controls during a year. A resistant tree has been distinguished by high buffer capacity. 5. Buffer capacity and amount of organic acids alter in the same way. 6. Change of buffer capacity is probably produced mainly by COOH-groups of organic acids, phenolic OH⁻ and amphoteric electrolytes. 7. Alteration of buffer capacity is not to be comprehended as neutralization, because buffering against H⁺ and OH⁻ is changing equally (especially in the range of pH of homogenized needles). 8. SO₂ resistance determined by cellphysiological methods during one year and variation of the resistance with the age of needles agree well with the alteration of buffer capacity.

Eutrophication of Lake 227, Experimental Lakes Area, northwestern Ontario, by addition of phosphate and nitrate

[More] Addition of 0.34 g P as Na2HPO4 and 5.04 g N as NaNO3 per square meter to a small unproductive Canadian Shield lake over a period of 17 weeks caused a severalfold increase in phytoplankton standing crop, and a change in dominant species from Chrysophyceae to Chlorophyta. Reactive phosphate concentrations remained at undetectable levels in the epilimnion after fertilization, and inorganic nitrogen concentrations remained low. Most of the added phosphorus and nitrogen was rapidly taken up by phytoplankton and sedimented with the seston.Although concentrations of total CO2 decreased to less than 20 μmoles/liter and pH values increased to greater than 9 in late summer, a high standing crop of phytoplankton was maintained. No marked increase in the rate of phytoplankton production was noticed Experiments in polyethylene containers suspended in the lake during this period of low total CO2 indicated that carbon was not limiting to algal production, except possibly at algal standing crops in excess of 100 μg/liter chlorophyll a, and that phosphorus was the primary limiting nutrient.Sodium added with the nutrients remained in the epilimnion until fall overturn, indicating that very little of it was utilized by phytoplankton

Effects of continuous exposure of navel oranges to nitrogen dioxide

[More] The continuous exposure of navel orange trees to 0.5 and 1.0 ppm of nitrogen dioxide for 35 days caused severe defoliation and leaf chlorosis. Exposure of the trees to 0.25 ppm and lower levels caused increased leaf drop and reduced fruit yield. At present it seems unlikely that atmospheric concentrations of oxides of nitrogen in the test area are causing injury to citrus.
