    • Water research in the Mediterranean: challenges and perspectives. The Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA) 

      Sabater, Sergi; Acuña, Vicenç; Batalla, Ramon J.; Balcázar, José Luis; Borrego, Carles; Insa, Sara; Marcé, Rafael; Mas Pla, Josep; Petrovic, Mira; Pijuan, Maite; Rodriguez Mozaz, Sara; Rodríguez Roda, Ignasi; Villagrasa, Marta; Barceló, Damià (Institut d'Estudis Catalans, 2014)
      The mission of the Catalan Institute for Water Research (ICRA) is to implement a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to water research, taking into account all components related to freshwaters and human-used waters. The ...
    • Weather as main driver for masting and stem growth variation in stone pine supports compatible timber and nut co-production 

      Shestakova, Tatiana A.; Mutke, Sven; Gordo, Javier; Camarero Martínez, Jesús Julio; Sin Casas, Esther; Pemán García, Jesús; Voltas Velasco, Jordi (Elsevier, 2021-01-01)
      Trade-offs between life-history traits are common in plants, and those involving growth and reproduction may be evident during mast years. The nutlike seeds of the stone pine (Pinus pinea L.) stand out among the most ...
    • Weed suppression greatly increased by plant diversity in intensively managed grasslands: A continental-scale experiment 

      Connolly, John; Sebastià, Ma. T.; Kirwan, Laura; Finn, John A.; Llurba, Rosa; Suter, Matthias; Collins, Rosemary P.; Porqueddu, Claudio; Helgadóttir, Áslaug; Baadshaug, Ole H.; Bélanger, Gilles; Black, Alistair; Brophy, Caroline; Čop, Jure; Dalmannsdóttir, S.; Delgado, Ignacio; Elgersma, Anjo; Fothergill, Michael; Frankow-Lindberg, Bodil E.; Ghesquiere, An; Golinski, Piotr; Grieu, Philippe; Gustavsson, Anne-Maj; Höglind, Mats; Huguenin-Elie, Olivier; Jørgensen, Marit; Kadziuliene, Zydre; Lunnan, Tor; Nykanen-Kurki, P.; Ribas Artola, Àngela; Taube, Friedhelm; Thumm, Ulrich; De Vliegher, A.; Lüscher, Andreas (John Wiley & Sons, 2017-09-27)
      1. Grassland diversity can support sustainable intensification of grassland production through increased yields, reduced inputs and limited weed invasion. We report the effects of diversity on weed suppression from 3 years ...
    • Wheat pre-anthesis development as affected by photoperiod sensitivity genes (Ppd-1) under contrasting photoperiods 

      Pérez-Gianmarco, Thomas I.; Slafer, Gustavo A.; González, Fernanda G. (CSIRO Publishing, 2018)
      Fine tuning wheat phenology is of paramount importance for adaptation. A better understanding of how genetic constitution modulates the developmental responses during pre-anthesis phases would help to maintain or even ...
    • When more is better: multigene engineering in plants 

      Naqvi, Shaista; Farré Martinez, Gemma; Sanahuja Solsona, Georgina; Capell Capell, Teresa; Zhu, Changfu; Christou, Paul (Elsevier, 2010)
      The genomics revolution has taught us that a great deal of information can be derived from studying many genes or proteins at the same time. We are beginning to see this approach blossoming in applied research. Instead ...
