Cover for An epigenetic memory from time of embryo development affects climatic adaptation in Norway spruce.

It was recently found that Norway spruce (Picea abies) can adjust the adaptive performance by a rapid and likely epigenetic mechanism, through a kind of a long-term memory of temperature sum and (probably) photoperiod from the time of its embryo development. This memory can facilitate the conifer's ...

Cover for Conifer cold hardiness, climate change and the likely effects of warmer temperatures on photosynthesis.

During winter and early spring, evergreen boreal conifers are severely stressed because light energy cannot be used when photosynthesis is pre-empted by low ambient temperatures. As a result of global warming, the growing season for boreal forest trees will increase, thereby altering the carbon...

Cover for Effects of drought on stream insects and its ecological consequences.

Global climate change scenarios predict more frequent and extended droughts, especially in the mid-latitudes. For many stream insects, these increasing periods of drought are likely to cause local if not regional extinctions, with potentially severe consequences for stream ecosystem function....
