SHORT TERM TEMPORAL TRENDS IN GENE EXPRESSION IN SENSITIVE AND TOLERANT SOYBEAN GENOTYPES EXPOSED TO OZONE 2015 495 Soybean (Glycine max) is sensitive to O3. My work aimed to identify molecular mechanisms associated with the differential tolerance to O3 among tolerant (Fiskeby III) and sensitive (Mandarin Ottawa) soybean genotypes. Short-term changes in gene expre...
Growth and Ecophysiological Responses of Fraser Fir (Abies Fraseri) Christmas Trees Along an Elevational Gradient 2015 755 Fraser fir (Abies fraseri) Christmas tree production is a $100 million dollar/year industry in North Carolina, but the future of these trees may be threatened by predicted global climate change. To evaluate how this species will respond to climate dr...
Using An Elevation Gradient As A Surrogate For Climate Warming To Understand The Effects On Wood Anatomy And Water Relations Of Fraser Fir (ABIES FRASERI) Christmas Trees 2016 931 Fraser fir (Abies fraseri) Christmas trees are an important part of the agro-economyof Western North Carolina, accounting for $100 million dollars in annual sales. Inorder to assess how warming-driven stressors of climate change could affect thesetre...
An Unusual Succulent In The Appalachian Understory: Light Capture And Drought Tolerance In Sedum ternatum 2017 801 Sedum ternatum is a succulent plant native to the Appalachian forest understory. This study first examines its use of understory sunlight throughout the year by measuring field photosynthesis, growth, and pigment production. Leaf thickness, succulenc...
Habitat Distribution And Frond Reorientation As Photoprotection And Drought-Avoidance Mechanisms In Christmas Fern (Polystichum Acrostichoides) In The Southern Appalachian Mountains 2017 633 Christmas fern (Polystichum acrostichoides (Michx.) Schott) is a ubiquitous wintergreen herb found in the forests of the Appalachian Mountains, yet it is distributed asymmetrically on the landscape, favoring north-facing slopes and shady stream banks...
A Study Of Autumn Olive (Elaeagnus Umbellata) Phenology And Associated Physiological Traits That May Facilitate Its Invasion Of The Understory Of A Southern Appalachian Forest 2018 417 Elaeagnus umbellata, better known as Autumn Olive (AO), is an exotic tree species that has invaded much of the United States. It grows in a variety of habitats, but little is known about its ability to invade and persist in forest understories, espec...
Comparative Ecophysiology Of Two High-Elevation Southern Appalachian Conifers: The Importance Of The Winter Season 2018 253 Southern Appalachian spruce-fir forests are glacial relicts, located as disjunct “islands in the sky” on the highest peaks in this region. Fraser fir (Abies fraseri), an endemic and valuable Christmas tree, dominates at elevations >1650 m while red s...
Ecophysiological Adaptations Of Galax Aphylla To The Understory Of Southern Appalachian Forests 1995 42 Galax aphylla is a common, evergreen, clonal herb found in the understory of forests in the southern Appalachian mountains. Little is known of the ecophysiology of galax or its adaptations to growing in the forest understory. The objectives of this s...
Factors Affecting The Ability Of Rosa Multiflora To Invade And Persist In The Understory Of Southern Appalachian Forests 2019 11 Rosa multiflora (MR) is an invasive shrub brought to the United States from east Asia in the 1800s. MR is shade intolerant, but recently, has invaded the forest understory in the southern Appalachians, raising the question of how it persists under sh...
