Importance of climate, anthropogenic disturbance and pathogens (Quambalaria coyrecup and Phytophthora spp.) on marri (Corymbia calophylla) tree health in southwest Western Australia

Anthropogenic disturbance and Phytophthora spp., influenced by climate, are resulting in a higher Quambalaria coyrecup infection probability in marri (Corymbia calophylla) and the development of cankers, causing a decline in marri health across the geographical range in

Short-day photoperiods affect expression of genes related to dormancy and freezing tolerance in Norway spruce seedlings

Open Access Article Key Message Gene expression analysis showed that prolonged short day (SD) treatment deepened dormancy and stimulated development of freezing tolerance of Picea abies seedlings. Prolonged SD treatment also caused later appearance of visible buds
