The role of non-glandular emergences in Croton floribundus (Euphorbiaceae) upon elevated ozone exposures

Márcia Gonçalves Dias, Bárbara Baêsso Moura, Giselle Da Silva Pedrosa, Silvia Ribeiro De Souza & Poliana Cardoso-Gustavson
The role of non-glandular emergences in avoiding ozone (O3) damages by preventing its entrance into leaf tissues was previously suggested to the O3-tolerant species Croton floribundus (Euphorbiaceae). However, this function against O3 damage has been underestimated due to the covering wax layer mostly composed of saturated hydrocarbon with low reactivity to this gas. To evaluate the role of these structures in conferring tolerance to O3, we mechanically removed the non-glandular emergences from leaf blades of...

Understanding global diversity patterns has benefitted from a focus on functional traits and how they relate to variation in environmental conditions among assemblages. Distant communities in similar environments often share characteristics, and for tropical forest mammals, this functional trait convergence has been demonstrated at coarse scales (110-200 km resolution), but less is known about how these patterns manifest at fine scales, where local processes (e.g., habitat features and anthropogenic activities) and biotic interactions occur. Here,...

Objective The goal of the present work, based on a collaborative research registry in Italy (the Salento-Brescia Registry), was to assess the incidence of frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) and to define the frequencies of different FTLD phenotypes in the general population. Methods The study was conducted from January 1, 2017, to December 31, 2017, in 2 Italian provinces: Lecce (in Puglia) in the south (area 2,799.07 km2, inhabitants 802,082) and Brescia (in Lombardy) in the...
