Resultat du savoir-faire des fleuristes, les splendides arrangements sont souvent garnis de gypsophile, la plante a floraison estivale qui fait partie des herbacees.
The ecology, assembly, and evolution of gypsophile floras.
Root colonisation by AM fungi differs between gypsum specialist and non-specialist plants: Links to the gypsophile behavior.
Population genetic and phylogenetic analyses of serpentine-tolerant plants (Mengoni et al., 2003a, b; Nyberg Berglund et al., 2004; Anacker, 2011), metallophytes (Mengoni et al, 2001; Pauwels et al., 2005), halophytes (Bennett et al., 2013), calciphiles (Klein & Kadereit, 2015), and gypsophiles (Bresowar & McGlaughlin, 2015) have demonstrated that tolerance to edaphic conditions has been gained numerous times within various groups of angiosperms and has even been lost in some groups, suggesting that traits conferring edaphic tolerance are evolutionarily labile.
Serpentine-tolerant plants such as Silene (Bratteler et al., 2006, b), Lasthenia (Rajakaruna, 2003), Layia (Baldwin, 2005), Leptosiphon (Kay et al., 2011), Streptanthus (Pope et al., 2014), and Collinsia (Moyle et al., 2012); metal-tolerant plants including Alyssum, Caulanthus, and Thalspi (Noccaea) (Mengoni et al., 2003a, b; Burrell et al., 2012; Gill et al., 2012); selenium-tolerant plants such as Stanleya and Astragalus (Schiavon & Pilon-Smits, 2017); and gypsophiles such as Mentzelia, Nama, and Helianthemum (Moore et al., 2014 and references therein) are ideal for testing how findings from the model plants may be applicable across a wider range of wild plants experiencing a broader array of edaphic pressures.
"The most asked flower is the gypsophile in white, pink or lilac.
However, and perhaps due to the great influence of Meyer's (1986) paper, the mineralogical or stereochemical composition of gypsophile plants was pushed into the background and physical factors became dominat in research (e.g.
4.--Characterize the phenomenon of gypsophily, according to the available information, through the adaptative syndromes that this geobotanical phenomenon produces on plants, especially as regards mineral composition, in order to identify gypsophile plants or gypsophytes according to the most objective criteria.
All togehter, concepts and ideas discussed here are useful in order to construct a database of gypsophile flora, which could serve all researchers interested in more than local works, and for planning phylogenetic, evolutionary, ecophisiological and macroecological studies
In addition, the semiarid gypsum karstlands in north central Mexico characterized by a mosaic of shrubby communities and endemic gypsophile grasslands were formerly acknowledged as areas with elevated endemism and important to preserve (Henrickson & Johnston, 1986; Meyer et al., 1992; Huerta-Martinez & Garcia-Moya, 2004).
