  • Gerard J. (2003-12-18)
    Plant steroid hormones, brassinosteroids (BRs), were originally isolated from extracts of pollen because of their growth-promoting properties and their potential use for enhancing crop production. Mutants in the biosynthesis, ...

    Brassinosteroids (BRs) are steroidal plant hormones that are essential for growth and development. It has been proposed that BRs are synthesized via two parallel pathways, the early and late C-6 oxidation pathways according ...
  • Gerard J.; C. (2002)
    Steroids play a role as essential hormones in plants as well as in animals. Plants produce numerous steroids and sterols, some of which are recognized as hormones in animals (Geuns, 1978; Jones and Roddick, 1988). Brassinolide ...

    The persistence of large blocks of homologous synteny and a high frequency of breakpoint reuse are distinctive features of mammalian chromosomes that are not well understood in evolutionary terms. To gain a better understanding ...

  • Witcombe, J. R.; Hollington, P. A.; Howarth, C. J.; Reader, S.; Steele, K. A. (2008-02-27)
    Using cereal crops as examples, we review the breeding for tolerance to the abiotic stresses of low nitrogen, drought, salinity and aluminium toxicity. All are already important abiotic stress factors that cause large and ...

    Increasing the extractable sugar yield from perennial crops is one strategy to generate renewable fuels such as bio-ethanol. Lolium perenne L. (perennial ryegrass) can contain significant (>30% dry matter) water-soluble ...
  • Humphreys, Michael W. (2001)
  • A. H.; A. H.; J. M. (2013-03)
    Animal production is a fundamental component of the food supply chain, and with an increasing global population production levels are set to increase. Ruminant animals in particular are valuable in their ability to convert ...
  • Mervyn O.; Michael W. (Taylor & Francis, 2008-09-11)
    Gain a better understanding of the genetic and physiological bases of stress response and stress tolerance as part of crop improvement programsAbiotic Stresses: Plant Resistance Through Breeding and Molecular Approaches ...
  • Abberton, Michael T.; Fothergill, Mick; Collins, Rosemary P.; Michaelson-Yeates, Terry P. T.; Williams, T. Andy; Marshall, Athole H.; Olyott, Phil (2005)
  • Abberton, Michael T.; Marshall, Athole H.; Minchin, Frank; Macduff, James H.; Michaelson-Yeates, Terry P. T. (European Grassland Federation, 2002)
    The temperate forage legumes, white clover (Trifolium repens) and red clover (Trifolium pratense), are increasingly important components of more sustainable agricultural practices in the livestock sector. Novel germplasm ...
  • Abberton, Michael T.; Fothergill, Mick; Collins, Rosemary P.; Marshall, Athole H. (2007)
  • Fothergill, Mick; Abberton, Michael T.; Collins, Rosemary P.; Michaelson-Yeates, Terry P. T.; Williams, T. Andy; Marshall, Athole H.; Rees, M. Elaine (2006-09)
    The use of sustainable legumes provides an opportunity to mitigate the effects of climate change and reduces pollution in the fragile area of the less favoured areas compared to conventional grassland agriculture. This ...
  • Mina Clare Gwynne (John Wiley & Sons, 2005-08)
    Written for students and all with a general interest in breeding horses, this book sets out to provide a basic understanding with sufficient practical information for beginners to get started. Enough reproductive physiology ...

    Highly adapted Miscanthus hybrids can make a significant global contribution to the mitigation of anthropogenic climate change via sustainable substitution of fossil fuels within the next decade. In this chapter we review ...
  • Hayes, Charlotte Mary; Clifton-Brown, John Cedric; Dolstra, Oene; Valentine, John (2005)
  • Sheena; Daniel; Stacey (Springer Science+Business Media, 2010-01-14)
    The chapter provides a short history of amenity grass breeding, its development and current functions, including greens, sports, landscaping and ecosystem services. It examines the traits required for these functions ...
