The Aquatic Plant Biology Research Group led by Prof. LI Wei from the Wuhan Botanical Garden studied the combined effects of cadmium and low inorganic carbon stress on carbon dioxide-concentrating mechanisms in O. alismoides, and they discovered that Ottelia alismoides exhibited an elevated cadmium accumulation along with the increasing cadmium concentration.
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.
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.
The researchers from Dr. XU Xiaohong's Lab at the Institute of Neuroscience, Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology, described a novel neural circuit for detecting male pheromone cues pertaining to inter-male aggression.
Recently, a research team led by Prof. XIE Qi from the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology revealed how the ESCRT-I component VPS23A was controlled by upstream factors to finely modulate the protein level of abscisic acid receptors in abscisic acid signaling.
In a recent study, researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) used a combination of methods (soil properties, soil erodibility, and water infiltration patterns) to interpret the impact of BPs on the underlying mechanisms of QTP soil water storage and associated soil erosion, which substantially contributed to the degradation of alpine meadow.
