New paper published – Disproportionate photosynthetic decline and inverse relationship between constitutive and induced volatile emissions upon feeding of Quercus robur leaves by large larvae of gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar)

Text by Lauri Laanisto Another paper by Ülo´s former postdoc Lucian, who does a lot of small experiments, where they measure all sorts of factors that could affect organic volatile emissions in plants. This time the focus is on the … Continue reading

New paper published – Cell‐level anatomical characteristics explain high mesophyll conductance and photosynthetic capacity in sclerophyllous Mediterranean oaks

Text by Lauri Laanisto Another study by from the Mediterranean. Peguero-Pina has collaborated with Ülo seveal times before, and also regarding the physiology of oaks (link to blog post). This time the study does not focus on a single species, … Continue reading

New paper published – Leaf functional plasticity decreases the water consumption without further consequences for carbon uptake in Quercus coccifera L. under Mediterranean conditions

Text by Lauri Laanisto Another paper from the Mediterranen. This time Ülo has participated in a study dealing with a paradox regarding Quercus coccifera´s ecophysiological functioning in different climate zones. The paper is rather techincal, so I´m not gonna try … Continue reading

New paper published – Volatile organic compound emissions and photosynthetic parameters of Quercus rubra under temperature stresses

Cooperation between our lab and the former member of our lab, Lucian Copolovici, continues. Another little paper with Astrid and Ülo as co-authors has been published in a rather obscure Romanian journal. Full citation: Copolovici, L., Bodescu, A., Pag, A., … Continue reading
