Shifts in plant foliar and floral metabolomes in response to the suppression of the associated microbiota

logo_BMCPB“Shifts in plant foliar and floral metabolomes in response to the suppression of the associated microbiota” by A. Gargallo-Garriga, J. Sardans, M. Pérez-Trujillo, A. Guenther, J. Llusià, L. Rico, J. Terradas, G. Farré-Armengol, I. Filella, T. Parella and J. Peñuelas. BMC Plant Biology 2016; 16:78. DOI: 10.1186/s12870-016-0767-7

The significance of microbial populations to the health and physiology of human and animal hosts has become a burgeoning and increasingly newsworthy topic. Of course, plants are also hosts for microbial life, and our metabolomics new study in BMC Plant Biology suggests that microbial influence on plant biology is more complex than we currently appreciate.

PhD Thesis Defense: Metabolomics and stoichiometry adapted to the study of environmental impacts on plants. PhD Thesis by Albert Gargallo Garriga

 

I am defending my PhD thesis next Thursday (September 10, 2015) at 11.30am in the Sala d´Actes “Carles Miravitlles” of the Institut de Ciències de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB), Campus UAB. The title of my thesis is “Metabolomics and stoichiometry adapted to the study of environmental impacts on plants” and below you can find an abstract of the work. If you are interested you are very welcome.

Metabolomics has allowed significant advances in biological sciences. An increasing number of ecological studies have applied a metabolomic approach to answer ecological questions (ecometabolomics) during the last few years. The work developed throughout this PhD thesis means a further step in the field of ecometabolomics.

Warming differentially influences the effects of drought on stoichiometry and metabolomics in shoots and roots

“Warming differentially influences the effects of drought on stoichiometry and metabolomics in shoots and roots” by Albert Gargallo-Garriga, Jordi Sardans, Míriam Pérez-Trujillo, Michal Oravec,Otmar Urban, Anke Jentsch, Juergen Kreyling, Carl Beierkuhnlein Teodor Parella and Josep Peñuelas. New Phytologist. March 2015. DOI: 10.1111/nph.13377

Plants in natural environments are increasingly being subjected to a combination of abiotic stresses, such as drought and warming, in many regions. The effects of each stress and the combination of stresses on the functioning of shoots and roots have been studied extensively, but little is known about the simultaneous metabolome responses of the different organs of the plant to different stresses acting at once. We studied the shift in metabolism and elemental composition of shoots and roots of two perennial grasses, Holcus lanatus and Alopecurus pratensis, in response to simultaneous drought and warming.

Opposite metabolic responses of shoots and roots to drought

scireports Opposite metabolic responses of shoots and roots to drought by Albert Gargallo-Garriga, Jordi Sardans, Míriam Pérez-Trujillo, Albert Rivas-Ubach, Michal Oravec, Teodor Parella and Josep Peñuelas. Scientific reports 4, Article number: 6829, October 2014. DOI: 10.1038/srep06829

Shoots and roots are autotrophic and heterotrophic organs of plants with different physiological functions. Do they have different metabolomes? Do their metabolisms respond differently to environmental changes such as drought? We used metabolomics and elemental analyses to answer these questions.

Drought enhances folivory by shifting foliar metabolomes in Quercus ilex trees

“Drought enhances folivory by shifting foliar metabolomes in Quercus ilex trees”

Albert Rivas-Ubach, Albert Gargallo-Garriga, Jordi Sardans, Michal Oravec, Laia Mateu Castell, Míriam Pérez-Trujillo,Teodor Parella, Romà Ogaya, Otmar Urban and Josep Peñuelas. January 2014. New Phytologist DOI: 10.1111/nph.12687

Plants respond to external environmental conditions such as drought or to the seasonal changes by shifting the foliar C:N:P:K stoichiometry and metabolome. Continue reading Drought enhances folivory by shifting foliar metabolomes in Quercus ilex trees

Metabolic responses of Quercus ilex seedlings to wounding analysed with nuclear magnetic resonance profiling

Plant Biology“Metabolomic responses of Quercus ilex seedlings to wounding simulating herbivory” By Jordi Sardans, Albert Gargallo-Garriga, Míriam Pérez-Trujillo, Teodor Parella, Roger Seco, Iolanda Filella, Josep  Peñuelas. Plant biology. April 2013. DOI: 10.1111/plb.12032.

Plants defense themselves against herbivory at several levels. One of these levels is the synthesis of inducible chemical defenses. By using NMR metabolomic technique we studied the metabolic changes of plant leaves after a wounding treatment simulating herbivore attack in the Mediterranean sclerophyllous tree Quercus ilex.
