    • A drought-driven model for the evolution of obligate apomixis in ferns: evidence from pellaeids (Pteridaceae). 

      Grusz, Amanda L; Windham, Michael D; Picard, Kathryn T; Pryer, Kathleen M; Schuettpelz, Eric; Haufler, Christopher H (American journal of botany, 2021-02-23)
      <h4>Premise</h4>Xeric environments impose major constraints on the fern life cycle, yet many lineages overcome these limitations by evolving apomixis. Here, we synthesize studies of apomixis in ferns and present an evidence-based ...
    • Cumulative early life adversity predicts longevity in wild baboons. 

      Tung, J; Archie, EA; Altmann, J; Alberts, SC (Nat Commun, 2016-04-19)
      In humans and other animals, harsh circumstances in early life predict morbidity and mortality in adulthood. Multiple adverse conditions are thought to be especially toxic, but this hypothesis has rarely been tested in a ...
    • Growth and physiological responses of isohydric and anisohydric poplars to drought. 

      Attia, Ziv; Domec, Jean-Christophe; Oren, Ram; Way, Danielle A; Moshelion, Menachem (J Exp Bot, 2015-07)
      Understanding how different plants prioritize carbon gain and drought vulnerability under a variable water supply is important for predicting which trees will maximize woody biomass production under different environmental ...
    • Resistance of African tropical forests to an extreme climate anomaly. 

      Bennett, Amy C; Dargie, Greta C; Cuni-Sanchez, Aida; Tshibamba Mukendi, John; Hubau, Wannes; Mukinzi, Jacques M; Phillips, Oliver L; ... (61 authors) (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2021-05)
      The responses of tropical forests to environmental change are critical uncertainties in predicting the future impacts of climate change. The positive phase of the 2015-2016 El Niño Southern Oscillation resulted in unprecedented ...
