Serine and glycerate, which are intermediates of the photorespiratory cycle, also displayed differences in accumulation between the extremophytes and Arabidopsis. For instance, we measured soil NO 3 – levels ranging from 0.

Please donate to Arkive Help us share the wonders of the natural world. This rich collection of genomes affords a means of understanding characteristics such as developmental and life history traits that may be missing in A.

Ecosystems and Human Well-Being: Comparative ionomics and metabolomics in extremophile and glycophytic Lotus species under salt stress challenge the metabolic pre-adaptation hypothesis. The genetics of nitrogen use efficiency in crop plants.

Anastatica hierochuntica – Flora of Qatar

Firstly, under control conditions, A. Your contribution may be further edited by our staff, and its publication is subject to our final approval. Abiotic stress, the field environment and stress combination. It contains genera classified into 49 monophyletic tribes. Improving nitrogen use efficiency for cereal production.

The data are representative of similar results from two independent experiments. Furthermore, while glycerate exhibited no response to salt in Arabidopsisit was maintained at a constantly higher level in A. Lindsey Paretti – Blood Island.


QNHG Qatar Natural History Group and associated people, for a possibility to participate in their field excursions and to learn about local nature.

Raffinose and its precursor galactinol are thought to be osmoprotectants and antioxidants Taji et al. The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica. Inwardly curved branches of Virgin’s Hand plant Anastatica hierochuntica, local names kaf mariam, jefaiea on roadside of a road from Dukhan to Al Jumayliyah.

Moistened again in a later rainy season, the ball uncurls and the plant wakes up from its dormant state, which causes the capsular fruits to open to disperse the seeds.

After the rainy seasonthe plant dries up, dropping leaves and curling branches into a tight ball, and ” hibernates “. D Total chlorophyll content.

After 2 days, domes were gradually removed to allow seedling hardening. Articles with ‘species’ microformats. The Brassicaceae family comprises over 3, species including many important crops as well as the premier model plant system A.

Higher expression of E. Seedlings grown on vertical MS plates were transferred to 0, 0.

Virgin’s Hand plant Anastatica hierochuntica local names kaf mariam, jefaiea in sand near Trainah in southern Qatar, February 14, Unnamed Road, Qatar. We also discerned species-specific responses that differentiated between the extremophytes. Among the metabolites most affecting the separation between species in decreasing order of absolute eigenvector value and confirmed by two-way ANOVA were raffinose, malate, galactinol, fumarate, phosphoric acid, and glycerate Supplementary Tables S1 and S2.


Horse, Equus caballusa hoofed herbivorous mammal of the family Equidae. The effect of oxidative stress on growth parameters and pigment contents of Arabidopsis and A.

It comprises a single species,…. Role of the xanthophyll cycle in photoprotection elucidated by measurements of light-induced absorbance changes, fluorescence and photosynthesis in leaves of Hedera. Conflict of Interest Statement The authors declare that the research was conducted in the anastatca of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest.

Another reason for low levels of malate in Arabidopsis compared to the extremophytes might be due to the likely greater salt-mediated inhibition of photosynthesis in Arabidopsis Stepien and Johnson, Rose of Jericho plant.

In the present study, A. Qatar, April 23, Salwa Rd, Qatar. Forward chemical genetic screens in Arabidopsis identify genes that influence sensitivity to the phytotoxic compound sulfamethoxazole.

Each hierochunticaa experiment comprised four replicate plates with 10 seedlings per plate. Plants grown on soil were exposed to incremental increases of NaCl concentration. A much greater reduction in Arabidopsis growth was discerned as salt hieroochuntica increased than was observed in A.

Rose of Jericho

Heat stress, especially when combined with drought, can lead to huge losses in crop production Mittler, ; Mittler and Blumwald, ; Lesk et al. On the other hand, no significant differences in A.
