    Abstract: Plants undergo a high concentration of tropospheric ozone formed mainly as a result of industrial and automobile pollution that may act on allelopathic relations in biocenosis. The problem was considered in first experiments modeling in test reactions with leaf leachates from 10 woody species as plant-donors, exposed to ozone, and able to influence... Show More

    Abstract: The aim of this review paper is to review the impact of climate change on diversity and distribution of enset in Ethiopia and to suggest the gabs for future research. Climate change impacts will disproportionately affect sub-Saharan African countries such as Ethiopia because their economies are highly dependent on climate-sensitive activities such ... Show More

    Abstract: Wheat is one of the world's foremost crops where its production is growing yearly. However, the emerged virulent stripe rust races at one point of the world spread to the rest of wheat producing countries by wind as well as human travels and damaged popular resistant wheat cultivars thereby posed food insecurity. This study was carried out with the... Show More

    Abstract: ‘Plant-blindness’ (PB) is the inability to see or notice plants in one’s own environment. There has been growing concerns amongst biologists that PB is becoming an increasing issue in young university students. However, currently we are still lacking detailed quantitative data that would allow us to determine the exact underlying causes for this tr... Show More
