Widespread co-occurrence of Sebacinales and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi in switchgrass roots and soils has limited dependence on soil carbon or nutrients

PLANTS PEOPLE PLANET, 3(5), 614–626.

By: M. Lee n & C. Hawkes n

author keywords: biofuel crop; co-occurrence; Glomeromycota; grass; Panicum virgatum; Sebacina; Serendipita
TL;DR: Sebacinales are rare compared to arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, and are only weakly associated with soil carbon, suggesting that ideas about improved soil carbon cycling associated with Sebacinale need to be sufficiently studied across a range of environmental conditions prior to their consideration for broad-spectrum soil inoculants.

Bacterial symbiont subpopulations have different roles in a deep-sea symbiosis

ELIFE, 10.

By: T. Hinzke*, M. Kleiner n, M. Meister*, R. Schlueter, C. Hentschker*, J. Pane-Farre*, P. Hildebrandt*, H. Felbeck* ...

MeSH headings : Animals; Bacteria / isolation & purification; Bacterial Physiological Phenomena; Hydrothermal Vents / microbiology; Polychaeta / microbiology; Symbiosis
TL;DR: Metaproteomic analysis, microscopy, and flow cytometry strongly suggest that Riftia symbiont cells of different sizes represent metabolically dissimilar stages of a physiological differentiation process; it is proposed that this division of labor between smaller and larger symbionts benefits the productivity of the symbiosis as a whole.

Rediscovery of the lost little dogwood Cornus wardiana (Cornaceae)-Its phylogenetic and morphological distinction and implication in the origin of the Arctic-Sino-Himalayan disjunction

JOURNAL OF SYSTEMATICS AND EVOLUTION, 59(2), 405–416.

By: E. Wahlsteen*, W. Zhou n, Q. Xiang n & K. Rushforth

author keywords: circumboreal-Himalayan disjunction; Cornus; morphometry; new species; phylogeny
TL;DR: The results suggest that the dwarf dogwood lineage split from the big‐bracted dogwoods in Asia or Asia‐western North America during the late Paleocene and spread widely to form a Eurasia‐North America distribution; the Arctic‐Sino‐Himalayan disjunction was the result of southward migration in the Miocene followed by extinction in the intervening highland areas.
