- ... Leaf length and width are two of the most important components of rice (Oryza sativa L.) plant architecture and directly contribute to yield. The genetic effects of leaf length and width are controlled by quantitative trait loci (QTLs). In this study, a double haploid (DH) population derived from a cross of O. sativa subsp. japonica cultivar ‘Maybelle’ and subsp. indica cultivar ‘Baiyeqiu’ (‘BYQ’) ...

- ... Garry oak (Quercus garryana Douglas ex Hook.) is a deciduous tree whose ecosystem is listed “at risk” throughout its range in British Columbia (BC), Canada, under the Canadian Species at Risk Act. Garry oak ecosystems host the most diverse flora for coastal BC, yet they account for less than 0.3% of the province’s land coverage. Due to the loss and degradation of Garry oak habitat, many associated ...
