In a recent study, researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) provide evidence for the novel future application of biosynthesized silver nanoparticles (PsAgNPs) based nanoformulation for pest management.
Recently, researchers led by Prof. WANG Peng from the Institute of Applied Ecology conducted a series of experiments by employing a <sup>13</sup>C natural abundance approach with tree seedlings and soils, with aims to investigate how carbon allocation to and functional traits of absorptive roots influence the rhizosphere priming effect.
Under the guidance of Prof. DING Jianqing, XIAO Li, who graduated from the Wuhan Botanical Garden, conducted large scale field surveys of herbivory on the invasive tallow tree along latitudes in both its native (China) and introduced ranges (United States), and collected leaf samples for analyses of tannins and flavonoids.
Recently, scientists from the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources (NIEER) assessed the Noah‐MP model for simulating soil hydrothermal dynamics at two typical permafrost sites with different underlying surfaces (the Tanggula site, alpine meadow; the Beiluhe site, alpine swamp) of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.
