William (Tam) Salter is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences and Sydney Institute of Agriculture at the University of Sydney. He has a bachelor degree in Ecological Science (Hons) from the University of Edinburgh and a PhD in plant ecophysiology from the University of Sydney. Tam is interested in the identification and elucidation of plant traits that could be useful for ecosystem resilience and future food security under global environmental change. He also has an active interest in effective scientific communication.

Patterns of mtDNA variation reveal complex evolutionary history of a relict and endangered peat bog pine

Assessments of eco-evolutionary mechanisms that shape the genetic structure of populations are important to understand the influence of environmental changes on plant ecosystems.In recent...

Phylogenetic relationships of two endemic eyebright species from the eastern European Alps

Mountain ranges host a considerable number of endemic species, which is considered to be the result of the complex origin of mountain ranges, shaped...

Photosynthetic capacity, respiration and growth of two papaya genotypes with different chlorophyll concentrations

Papaya is the most economically important species within the Caricaceae family and it is widely cultivated not only for fruit consumption, but also for...

Photosynthetic acclimation of terrestrial and submerged leaves in the amphibious plant Hygrophila difformis

Generally, higher land plants do not grow under submerged conditions and aquatic plants cannot grow in terrestrial conditions. On the other hand, amphibious plants...

AoBP special issue announcement: Population differentiation in plants

Plant populations continually change over space and time. Many factors contribute to this differentiation with some resulting in evolutionary change. Unravelling the relative importance...

Employing plant functional groups to advance seed dispersal ecology and conservation

Plants rely on seed dispersal vectors — for example, animals, wind and water — to move across the landscape. Through dispersal, plants may experience...

Dynamic role of iron supply in amelioration of cadmium stress in mungbean

Although iron (Fe) is abundant in the earth’s crust, it is largely unavailable for plants, especially those growing in alkaline and calcareous soils. Higher...

Effects of increased precipitation on life history traits of the cold desert annual Erodium oxyrhynchum (Geraniaceae)

Due to climate warming, the global and regional water cycle is changing, and this will have a great impact on terrestrial ecosystems. Since plants...

Genetic diversity in relict populations of the oriental plane tree

The distribution of plant species around the Mediterranean basin is a product of the influence of both geographical barriers and of climatic changes experienced...

Completing the hybridization triangle: the inheritance of genetic incompatibilities during homoploid hybrid speciation in ragworts (Senecio)

Hybridization is an important contributor to biodiversity and speciation, with approximately 25 % of all plant species and 10 % of all animal species...
