Phytoextraction of nickel and rhizosphere microbial communities under mono- or multispecies hyperaccumulator plant cover in a serpentine soil 
Marie Rue, Jessica Vallance, Guillaume Echevarria, Patrice Rey and Emile Benizri

This study is one of a few works concerned with the effect of the association of hyperaccumulator plants on the efficiency of nickel phytoextraction. The objective was to compare the mono- and co-cropping of hyperaccumulator plant species. Two hyperaccumulator plants were the best candidates for improved phytoextraction efficiency. This work underlined that multi-species vegetation covers promote the development and activity of rhizosphere microorganisms and could improve phytoextraction.

Seasonal changes in photosynthetic rate and pigment content in two populations of the monotypic Balkan serpentine endemic Halacsya sendtneri 
Dražen D. Vici?, Milovan M. Stoiljkovi?, Marko S. Sabovljevi? and Branka M. Stevanovi?

Perennial herb Halacsya sendtneri grows exclusively in harsh serpentine soils of the Balkan Peninsula. It thrives in both open and shaded habitats. Colonising a wider range of habitats with different levels of sunlight enables it to more efficiently solve harsh soil features, and vice versa.

A preliminary study of the role of bacterial–fungal co-inoculation on heavy metal phytotoxicity in serpentine soil 
Mihiri Seneviratne, Gamini Seneviratne, H. M. S. P. Madawala, M. C. M. Iqbal, Nishanta Rajakaruna, Tharanga Bandara and Meththika Vithanage

We investigated the role of bacterial–fungal interactions on heavy metal uptake by Zea mays plants. Soil nutrients and soil enzyme activities were also measured to determine the effect of microbial inoculations on soil quality. We report the synergistic effect of bacterial–fungal inoculation in enhancing soil-quality and promoting plant growth in the presence of heavy metals.

Metal accumulation by Arabidopsis halleri subsp. gemmifera at a limestone mining site 
Aki Kosugi, Jun Tamaru, Kazumi Gotou, Hazuka Y. Furihata, Akifumi Shimizu, Akira Kawabe and Emiko Harada

Arabidopsis halleri is a model Cd and Zn hyperaccumulator. Accessions of A. halleri subsp. gemmifera growing on calcareous soil contained high amounts of Cd in shoots, but Zn concentration in shoots did not reach the level required for a hyperaccumulator. Soil factors and natural variations of A. halleri may help us understand the plant mechanisms of metal accumulation and tolerance.

Metal-accumulating plants from serpentine habitats of K?z?lda?, Konya Province, Turkey 
A. Aksoy, Z. Leblebici and M. N. V. Prasad

Unique flora established on serpentine habitats of Kızıldağ, Konya Province, Turkey is dealt in this paper. This flora is rich in endemic metal hyperaccumulators, particularly nickel, rather unusual and potentially valuable plant resources, therefore, deserves conservation. The Ni-hyperaccumulating species from Turkey are invaluable plant genetic resource for investigations on phytoremediation, phytomining and agromining emerging fields of farming for metals.

Interaction of nickel and manganese in uptake, translocation and accumulation by the nickel-hyperaccumulator plant, Alyssum bracteatum (Brassicaceae) 
S. Majid Ghaderian, Rasoul Ghasemi and Faeze Hajihashemi

Interactions of Ni with different metals may affect Ni uptake and accumulation by the Ni-hyperaccumulator, Alyssum bracteatum. Negative correlations were observed between Ni and Mn concentrations in both roots and shoots. The results suggest a competition between Ni and Mn for uptake at root.

Nickel stimulates copper uptake by nickel-hyperaccumulator plants in the genus Alyssum 
Rasoul Ghasemi, S. Majid Ghaderian and Sahar Ebrazeh

The specificity of some traits that are responsible for metal tolerance in metal hyperaccumulator plants could be clarified by studying the interactions of different metals. Studying the interactions of Ni and Cu in some Ni hyperaccumulator and non-accumulator plants from the genus Alyssum showed an specific stimulation of Cu uptake by Ni in Ni-accumulator plants. This finding hints that this particular feature may be among the characteristics that enable them to hyperaccumulate Ni, unlike their congeneric non-accumulators.

Elemental composition of plants from the serpentine soil of Sugashima Island, Japan 
Takafumi Mizuno and Yoko Kirihata

Elemental composition of plants from the serpentine soil of in Sugashima Island, Japan was investigated. Plants had a tendency to accumulate Ni in high correlation with Fe, but Buxus microphylla, had the highest Ni concentration with the average Fe level. This suggests that plants that accumulate high Ni but low Fe may be more adaptive for serpentine soil environment.

Extended vegetation histories from ultramafic karst depressions 
Geoffrey Hope

Rocks high in iron and magnesium are moderately soluble in wet tropical climates and land-surface features such as sinkholes are formed, similar to those in limestones. Low nutrients and heavy metal toxicity slow the build-up of organic matter in many of these hollows and they can preserve records of long-term vegetation change over 50 000 years ago. Dating of the organic material is not straightforward in these open systems and chronological problems limit the studies in some cases.

Calcium:magnesium ratio affects environmental stress sensitivity in the serpentine-endemic Alyssum inflatum (Brassicaceae) 
Rasoul Ghasemi, Zohreh Zare Chavoshi, Robert S. Boyd and Nishanta Rajakaruna

We compared survival of a serpentine and a non-serpentine soil Alyssum species when exposed to variation in Ca : Mg ratio and ammonium and heat stress. The serpentine soil species was less tolerant of change in Ca : Mg ratio and also was more sensitive to both ammonium and heat stress. We conclude that the serpentine soil species may be more susceptible to anthropogenic environmental changes.

Erratic hyperaccumulation of nickel, with particular reference to the Queensland serpentine endemic Pimelea leptospermoides 
Roger D. Reeves, W. Scott Laidlaw, Augustine Doronila, Alan J. M. Baker, and George N. Batianoff

Among more than 400 nickel-hyperaccumulating plants known worldwide, the Queensland endemic Pimelea leptospermoides is unusual in showing a very wide range of nickel concentrations from high-nickel ultramafic soils. This work aims to determine whether the variations result from differences among the various plant populations or from different properties of the soils on which they grow; it shows that a combination of variations in soil pH and total soil Ni concentration account for the observed differences in plant behaviour. Other cases of wide differences in nickel uptake by species at different sites may also be explained in this way, and the detailed investigation of soil properties should accompany studies on the nickel-accumulating behaviour of these plants.

Vegetation dynamics and mesophication in response to conifer encroachment within an ultramafic system 
J. Burgess, K. Szlavecz, N. Rajakaruna, S. Lev and C. Swan

Local biodiversity and endemic species are being endangered as an historically unique woodland system is succumbing to encroachment. This work used an integrated approach combining data from geology, ecology and soils to examine the successional trajectory of a unique woodland ecosystem. The data show that a system once dominated by prairie-type grasses is now transitioning to a traditional piedmont forest.

Growth and nickel uptake by serpentine and non-serpentine populations of Fimbristylis ovata (Cyperaceae) from Sri Lanka 
P. K. D. Chathuranga, S. K. A. T. Dharmasena, N. Rajakaruna and M. C. M. Iqbal

We conducted a study to examine whether serpentine and non-serpentine populations of Fimbristylis ovata represent locally adapted ecotypes by investigating their growth and potential for nickel uptake and tolerance under greenhouse conditions. The serpentine population showed significantly better growth and nickel tolerance than did the non-serpentine population. Our preliminary investigations suggest that the serpentine and non-serpentine populations may be locally adapted to their respective soils; however, additional studies are required to determine whether the populations deserve ecotypic recognition.

Stenocalcic properties in the serpentine-endemic plant Alyssum inflatum Nyárády 
Rasoul Ghasemi, Zohreh Zare Chavoshi and Seyed Majid Ghaderian

Some of the survival-related physiological responses to different concentrations of Ca were compared to test Ca sensitivity in Alyssum inflatum (serpentine endemic) and A. lanceolatum (non-serpentine plant). On the basis of the observed responses, we introduce the serpentine plant A. inflatum as a stenocalcic plant. The results demonstrated the reason behind the uneven distribution of the plant on serpentine patches in its habitat.

Sergio A. Castro and Roberto Ovalle
pp. 623-629

Cryptic species are morphologically similar species that tend to be recognised as a single species. Because the genus Capsella contains two cryptic species (C. bursa-pastoris and C. rubella), our aim was to establish the presence or absence of these exotic taxa in continental Chile. Using molecular markers, we confirm that both species of Capsella are present in continental Chile, although they exhibit different abundances and ranges.

pp. 630-637

Understanding the timing of seed germination of weeds requires information about the responses of seeds to the environment. We investigated seed dormancy in the weed Turgenia latifolia and found that it consists of two components, one of which could be broken at high and/or low temperatures, and the other, need for embryo growth inside the seed before germination, required low temperature. These results are used to explain how the species can behave as both a winter annual and a short-lived summer annual.

pp. 638-646

Using four selected molecular markers (nrDNA ITS and the plastid spacers trnS/G, psbA-trnH and trnY/T), we present a phylogeny of Verbascum and test previous infrageneric taxonomic hypotheses as well as its monophyly with respect to Scrophularia. Our results show that while molecular data unambiguously support the circumscription of Verbascum inferred from morphology, they prove to be of limited utility in resolving infrageneric relationships, suggesting that Verbascum ‘s high species diversity is due to rapid and recent radiation.

pp. 647-656

Epiphytic plants do not have direct connections with the ground. They use trees (phorophytes) as a support, and they are subject to recurrent dry periods. Pleopeltis pleopeltifolia is a poikilochorophyllous desiccation-tolerant (DT) epiphytic fern that has the ability to revive from the air-dry state. So as to better understand the mechanisms of DT in ferns, we carried out a study to analyse changes associated with desiccation and rehydration in P. pleopeltifolia.

pp. 657-665

The environment and climate that a plant lives in influence its physical traits, and they, in turn, influence plant function. This study investigated the impact of environmental and climatic pressures on the stomata of Dodonaea viscosa subsp. angustissima, so as to discover what environmental and climatic pressures exert greatest influence on stomatal properties. We found that maximum temperature exerted the greatest pressure on the stomata of this species.

Do CO2, temperature, rainfall and elevation influence stomatal traits and leaf width in Melaleuca lanceolata across southern Australia? 
blank image
Kathryn E. Hill, Robert S. Hill and Jennifer R. Watling
pp. 666-673

Stomata are the interface between the atmosphere and leaf internal spaces, and their size and density can vary with a range of environmental factors. We investigated these responses using Melaleuca lanceolata and found a relationship between stomatal traits and temperature, as well as between leaf width and elevation, rainfall and temperature. Knowledge of leaf plasticity enhances our understanding of how plants respond to changing environmental conditions.

Lost in time and space: re-assessment of conservation status in an arid-zone flora through targeted field survey

J. L. Silcock, A. J. Healy and R. J. Fensham
pp. 674-688

Lack of basic data to assess plant species against IUCN Red List criteria is a major impediment to assigning accurate conservation status throughout large areas of the world. We systematically re-assessed the conservation status of an arid-zone flora using herbarium records, expert interviews and targeted field survey. This approach facilitates robust conservation assessments across vast and poorly known regions, distinguishing species that have been lost in space and time from those that are at risk of becoming lost from our landscape.

Hira Bashir and A. N. Khalid
pp. 689-697

Ectomycorrhizal symbiosis with exotic Eucalyptus species is widespread, especially in the semiarid areas compared with arid regions of Punjab Province, Pakistan. This study aims to identify ectomycorrhizal symbionts based on morphotyping and sequence analysis of the rDNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region and to assess their potential to colonise different Eucalyptus species. Fungal symbionts are characterised as having a broader host range or narrower host range. Results showed that only three fungal species are evidently colonising the roots of Eucalyptus plantations in the Punjab Province, which reveals that exotic plant species have a narrow host range.
