    Environ Sci Pollut Res Int 20:1737-45. 2013
    ..Our results suggest that covering mineral soil with an organic soil layer is an efficient way to remediate recalcitrant chlorophenol contamination in mineral soils. The results of the field experiment are promising...

    ..They also stress the importance of recognizing the role of late-season tree-insect interactions in the evolution of herbivory resistance...

    University of Helsinki, Department of Ecological and Environmental Sciences, Niemenkatu 73, 15140 Lahti, Finland

    Aki Sinkkonen
    University of Helsinki, Department of Ecological and Environmental Sciences, Niemenkatu 73, 15140 Lahti, Finland
    Ann Bot 102:361-6. 2008
    ..Most current hypotheses presume that autumn colours vary between tree individuals. This study was designed to test if within-tree variation should be taken into account in experimental and theoretical research on autumn colouration...

    Sci Total Environ 407:4461-4. 2009
    ..We conclude that the results supported the hypothesis that very low toxicant concentrations may have ecological effects on fast-growing plant species. Finally, we discuss the limitations of the statistical methods currently in use...

    ..minor was exposed to lead acetate though the means of all roots were constant. P. oleracea seemed to be insensitive to selective toxicity. We conclude that selective toxicity at low doses should be considered in parallel with hormesis...
