Water relations and gas exchange in Coespeletia moritziana (Sch. Bip) Cuatrec., a giant rosette species of the high tropical Andes
(Photosynthetica 50: 429-436, 2012-04-26)
Giant rosettes are ones of the most striking features of the vegetation in the high tropical Andes, with Coespeletia moritziana reaching the highest altitudes up to 4,600 m a.s.l. Different from other giant rosettes, this ...
Leaf spectra and weight of species in canopy, sub-canopy, and understory layers in a Venezuelan Andean cloud forest
(Scientifica, Article ID 839584, 14 pages http://dx.doi.org/10.6064/2012/839584, 2012-04-22)
We characterize the leaf spectra of tree species of an Andean cloud forest in Venezuela, grouped according to position in canopy, subcanopy and understory. We measured leaf reflectance and transmittance spectra in the ...
Freezing avoidance in tropical Andean bamboos
(LXth World bamboo Congress proceedings. Sección 2, Massachusetts, USA. pp. 247-257, 2012-04-15)
Frost resistance was compared in five species of different life forms in the neotropical woody bamboo genus Chusquea growing along a cloud forest-paramo gradient, between 2250-4010 m a.s.l. in the Venezuelan Andes. C. ...
Synthesis, characterization and hydroformylation catalytic activity of a water-soluble RhCl(CO)(PySO3Na)2 complex using 1-hexene and real naphtha
In this work, we describe the synthesis and characterization of a new water soluble [RhCl(CO)(PySO3Na)2], complex (1); where [PySO3Na] is the sodium salt of p-sulfonated pyridine ligand. Complex (1) was obtained in methanol, ...
