  7. Steady rains cause some of Ohio’s hidden fungi to surface in suburbia

    Jul 6, 2015

    Columbus Dispatch - July 5, 2015 - As rain continues to fall across central Ohio, wet and weary residents likely have noticed something growing in the tall grass in their yards. Mushrooms are popping up everywhere — under backyard decks, on tree trunks, along curbs. You might see patches of them or just a solo cap. Where do they come from? You’ve got to dig deep for the answer. They lurk there underground, just below the surface, waiting for the right conditions to sprout.

  8. Moving Forward Through: Meta-Analysis

    May 19, 2015

    by Madeline Fisher in CSA News.  Before Fernando Miguez began running experiments as a University of Illinois master’s student, like any good scientist he dove first into the research literature. His subject was the effect of winter cover crops on summer corn yields, and by the time Miguez entered grad school, a healthy body of work already existed. So, he sat down to review a stack of studies, thinking, naturally enough, that he’d soon hit upon a knowledge gap to target in his trials.

  10. Quantifying reactive oxygen species in plants

    May 10, 2015

    Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are byproducts of fundamental metabolic processes in plants. Abiotic stress, such as drought, elevates production of ROS. Among other ROS in plants, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) has the longest half-life and is critical for downstream signaling in processes leading to defense against abiotic and biotic stress. Despite the importance of ROS, methods for their absolute quantification in plants are not available.
