This compilation discusses the most relevant and state-of-the-art information related to the evolution of aldehyde dehydrogenases in the plant kingdom, their multifaceted physiological and biochemical functions, and their catalytic and structural properties.
The authors discuss how plants adapt in the face of different types of abiotic and biotic stress factors, the plausible mechanisms of rhizobiome recruitment by plants, and role of rhizosphere microorganisms in developing the immunity and defence responses in plants.
In one study, the most important factors impacting the dangers of fire are analyzed though multi-dimensional statistical methods using the topographical, climatic, fuel, technical, economic, managerial and social data related to 59 large forest fires that occurred in Turkey between 1977 and 2017.
Additionally, the impact of nature-based solutions on the climate resilience of cities is reviewed, particularly focusing on human health, quality of life and well-being.
In closing, the authors analyze temporal landscape changes occurring in the Paraguay/Jauquara Basin, Mato Grosso State, Brazil, as well as their effects on the conservation of natural vegetation.
