Exclusion, Amelioration, Tolerance: An investigation of the physiological basis for tolerance in serpentine Mimulus guttatus
As sessile organisms, plants must cope with a variety of abiotic stress factors, including the mineral composition of soil. In serpentine soils, the low calcium-to-magnesium ratio has been shown to limit the growth and survival of many plant species. Some species are adapted to serpentine, employing a variety of physiological ...
Temperature gradients drive functional heterogeneity within muscle
During locomotion, muscles respond to an animal's varying need for speed, endurance, strength, and agility. Therefore, in addition to operating as motors, muscles also act as brakes, springs, and struts. Interestingly, if the physical, morphological, and neurological parameters determining muscle performance vary regionally, ...
