Studying physiological responses in animals can tell us a lot about how much environmental stress animals can tolerate, helping to improve our understanding of animal biology and inform conservation management actions.
In this talk, I will introduce a suite of new methods and biological insights gained from the assembly and analysis of Eucalyptus genomes. I will start by introducing new methods of assembling and assessing nuclear, mitochondrial, and chloroplast genomes with long- and short-read data.
Throughout its long history, life has been a force of planetary transformation, remaking the air, the rocks, the landscapes, even painting the color of the sky and increasing the variety of Earth’s minerals.
Orchid mycorrhizal fungi are essential for orchid seed germination and survival due to the lack of endosperm in dust-like orchid seeds. I investigated the mycorrhizal associations in Cryptostylis and Drakaeinae orchids.
