New Phytol 1994 Oct;128(2):347-362

Department of Biology and Nature Conservation, Agricultural University of Norway, P.O. Box 5014, N-1432 ÅRs, Norway.

Temperate grasses of the subfamily Festucioideae can be grouped into two main categories according to their environmental control of flowering, species with regular long day (LD) induction, and those with dual induction requirements. The former group includes the temperate annual crosses and a few perennial species such as Phleum pratense and Poa nemoralis. These species base no winter requirement and require only LD to flower.

Anthropogenic alteration of flow, temperature, and light as life-history cues in stream ecosystems.

Integr Comp Biol 2021 Apr 19. Epub 2021 Apr 19.

Freshwater Research Institute, Susquehanna University, 514 University Avenue, Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA.

Life history events, from mating and voltinism to migration and emergence, are governed by external and historically predictable environmental factors. The ways humans have altered natural environments during the Anthropocene have created myriad and compounding changes to these historically predictable environmental cues. Over the past few decades, there has been an increased interest in the control temperature exerts on life history events as concern over climate change has increased. Read More

Electronic address:

Lilium is an important commercial flowering species, and there are many varieties and more than 100 species of wild Lilium. Lilium × formolongi is usually propagated from seedlings, and the flowering of these plants is driven mainly by the photoperiodic pathway. Most of the other lily plants are propagated via bulblets and need to be vernalized; these plants can be simply divided into pretransplantation types and posttransplantation types according to the time at which the floral transition occurs.

Red and blue wavelengths affect the morphology, energy use efficiency and nutritional content of lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.).

Sci Rep 2021 Apr 16;11(1):8374. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Beijing Research Center of Intelligent Equipment for Agriculture, Beijing Academy of Agriculture and Forestry Sciences, Beijing, 100097, China.

Since red (R) and blue (B) LED light has different quantum efficiency and photoelectric conversion efficiency, mixed RB with different proportions of R and B results in varied energy consumption. In order to improve the energy use efficiency of the closed-type plant production systems, the effects of R and B proportions on the electric use efficiency (EUE), light use efficiency (LUE) as well as the quality of butter leaf lettuce were evaluated in this study. Lettuce seedlings were cultivated in a plant factory with artificial lighting (PFAL) and subjected to eleven combinations of R and B (100%R, 90%R, 80%R, 70%R, 60%R, 50%R, 40%R, 30%R, 20%R, 10%R, 0%R; the rest of the photons in each treatment were B) with the same total photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) and photoperiod (200 ± 3 μmol·m·s, 16 h) for 35 days.

Induction of diapause by clock proteins period and timeless via changes in PTTH and ecdysteroid titer in the sugar beet moth, Scrobipalpa ocellatella (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae).

Arch Insect Biochem Physiol 2021 Apr 16:e21790. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Department of Entomology, Faculty of Agriculture, Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran, Iran.

The sugar beet moth, Scrobipalpa ocellatella (Boyd), one of the most severe sugar beet pests, causes quantitative and qualitative yield losses late in the autumn. Previously, it was shown that low temperature and short-day photoperiod together cause diapause induction in pupae. Here, the interaction of the critical elements of the diapause induction, including the period (PER), timeless (TIM), prothoracicotropic hormone (PTTH), and ecdysteroid titer, were investigated.

Transcriptome architecture reveals genetic networks of bolting regulation in spinach.

BMC Plant Biol 2021 Apr 14;21(1):179. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Department of Biotechnology, College of Agriculture, Isfahan University of Technology, Isfahan, Iran.

Background: Bolting refers to the early flowering stem production on agricultural and horticultural crops before harvesting. Indeed, bolting is an event induced by the coordinated effects of various environmental factors and endogenous genetic components, which cause a large reduction in the quality and productivity of vegetable crops like spinach. However, little is known about the signaling pathways and molecular functions involved in bolting mechanisms in spinach. Read More

Faculty of Textile Science and Technology, Shinshu University, Ueda, Nagano, 386-8567, Japan.

The bivoltine strain of the domestic silkworm, Bombyx mori, has two generations per year. It shows a facultative diapause phenotype determined by environmental conditions, including photoperiod and temperature, and nutrient conditions during embryonic and larval development of the mother. However, it remains unclear how the environmental signals received during development are selectively utilized as cues to determine alternative diapause phenotypes. Read More

Juvenile hormone regulates photoperiod-mediated male reproductive diapause via the methoprene-tolerant gene in the ladybeetle Harmonia axyridis.

Insect Sci 2021 Apr 11. Epub 2021 Apr 11.

Hubei Key Laboratory of Insect Resources Utilization and Sustainable Pest Management, College of Plant Science and Technology, Huazhong Agricultural University, Wuhan, 430070, China.

Juvenile hormone (JH) absence induces photoperiod-mediated reproductive diapause, which is characterized by reproductive cessation. Although the role of methoprene-tolerant (Met)-mediated JH signaling in photoperiod-mediated female reproduction has been well documented, its role in male reproduction remains unclear. In this study, we investigated the role of JH in regulating photoperiod-mediated development of the male internal reproductive system (IRS) in the predatory ladybeetle Harmonia axyridis (Pallas).
