Heterogeneous pollen in Chlorophytum comosum, a species with a unique mode of plastid inheritance intermediate between the maternal and biparental modes. (1/9)

The majority of angiosperms display maternal plastid inheritance. The cytological mechanisms of this mode of inheritance have been well studied, but little is known about its genetic relationship to biparental inheritance. The angiosperm Chlorophytum comosum is unusual in that different pollen grains show traits of different modes of plastid inheritance. About 50% of these pollen grains exhibit the potential for biparental plastid inheritance, whereas the rest exhibit maternal plastid inheritance. There is no morphological difference between these two types of pollen. Pollen grains from different individuals of C. comosum all exhibited this variability. Closer examination revealed that plastid polarization occurs, with plastids being excluded from the generative cell during the first pollen mitosis. However, the exclusion is incomplete in 50% of the pollen grains, and the few plastids distributed to the generative cells divide actively after mitosis. Immunoelectron microscopy using an anti-DNA antibody demonstrated that the plastids contain a large amount of DNA. As there is a considerable discrepancy between the exclusion and duplication of plastids, resulting in plastids with opposite fates occurring simultaneously in C. comosum, we propose that the species is a transitional type with a mode of plastid inheritance that is genetically intermediate between the maternal and biparental modes.  (+info)

In situ chromosomal localization of rDNA sites in "Safed Musli" Chlorophytum ker-gawl and their physical measurement by fiber FISH. (2/9)

Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH) technique has been applied on somatic chromosomes and extended DNA fibers in the medicinally important species of Chlorophytum to elucidate physical localization and measurement of the rDNA sites using two rRNA multigene families homologous to 45S and 5S rDNA. The two species of Chlorophytum, namely C. borivillianum and C. comosum, both with 2n = 28, reveal diversity for copy number and localization of rDNA sites. C. borivillianum is comprised of five 45S-rDNA sites:one each in the secondary constriction region of chromosomes 7, 8, 9; one in the subtelomeric region of the short arm of chromosome 2 and the telomeric region of the short arm of chromosome 12; and one 5S-rDNA site in the subtelomeric region of the long arm of chromosome 1. In C. comosum, there are three 45S-rDNA sites (one each in the short arm of chromosomes 12, 13, and 14) and two 5S-rDNA sites (in the secondary constriction regions of chromosomes 2 and 13). Fiber FISH analysis conducted on extended DNA fibers revealed variation in the size of continuous tandem strings for the two r-DNA families. Taking the standard value of native B DNA equivalent to 3.27 kb for 1 mum, it was estimated that the physical size of continuous DNA strings is of the order of approximately 90 kb, 180 kb, and 300 kb for 45S-rDNA and of the order of 60 kb, 150 kb for 5S-rDNA in C. comosum, grossly in correspondence to their respective physical sizes at metaphase.  (+info)

Cytomixis impairs meiosis and influences reproductive success in Chlorophytum comosum (Thunb) Jacq. - an additional strategy and possible implications. (3/9)

Spontaneous intercellular chromatin migration/cytomixis was observed to occur in the pollen mother cells (PMCs) of the Chlorophytum comosum for the first time. The migration through cytomictic channels was more pronounced in meiosis-I and very rare in meiosis-II. The process was associated with erratic meiosis, which was characterized by defects in chromosome organization and segregation. Cytomixis was more intense in the month of April than in July and consequently the frequency of meiotic irregularities was much more pronounced during the month of April. As a consequence of abnormal meiosis, fertility was drastically reduced resulting in meager seed efficiency of 17% only. Recombination system also does not guarantee the release of sufficient variability. We view the phenomenon of cytomixis as genetically controlled mechanism involving meiotic genes and operating through signal transduction pathway triggered by the environmental stimuli. The evolutionary significance and tenable hypothesis in the backdrop of existing literature is also proposed.  (+info)

Morphology and life cycle of a new species of Didymium (Myxomycetes) from arid areas of Mexico. (4/9)

A new species of myxomycete, Didymium umbilicatum, isolated from the bark of Agavaceae, is described from arid zones of Mexico. This species was obtained from moist chamber cultures of Yucca spp. bark, collected in four different years from two states (Puebla and Queretaro) in central Mexico and found in the field from Hidalgo, Oaxaca and Puebla on the dead remains of Agave sp. The new species has small, flat, white sporocarps or short plasmodiocarps, 0.2-1.3 mm diam, and 0.15-0.4 mm tall. They are sessile on a reduced base or have a short, calcareous pale stalk and warted spores, warts fused in an irregular subreticulum by SEM. It is the sixth species of Didymium recently described from arid areas. The stability of the taxonomic characters of the species was confirmed by spore-to-spore culture on agar. Life cycle events are described from germination to sporulation. The morphology of the myxomycete specimens was examined with scanning electron microscopy and light microscopy, and micrographs of relevant details are included.  (+info)

Two new spirostanol glycosides (1, 2) and a new furostanol glycoside (3), together with nine known steroidal glycosides (4-12) were isolated from the leaves of Furcraea foetida (Agavaceae). The structures of the new compounds were determined by spectroscopic analysis and the results of hydrolytic cleavage. The isolated compounds were evaluated for their cytotoxic activities against HL-60 human leukemia cells, A549 human lung adenocarcinoma cells, HSC-2 human oral squamous carcinoma cells, and HSC-4 human oral squamous carcinoma cells.  (+info)

Evaluation of traditional medicines I: identification of PHELA using different chromatographic techniques. (7/9)

PHELA is a herbal mixture of four African traditional medicinal plants that has been used for decades in wasting conditions and is now being developed by the Medical Research Council (MRC) as an immune booster for patients with compromised immune system. A chromatographic fingerprint of PHELA was needed for quality control purposes. Here, a comprehensive method for fingerprinting of PHELA using different chromatographic techniques is described. It involved extraction of the PHELA by either acidic or a simple 'salting-out' method, followed by Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) analysis and/or preparative Column Chromatography (CC). The products were thereafter analyzed by High Performance Liquid Chromatography with UV-detector (HPLC-UV), HPLC with fluorescence-detector (HPLC-FL) and Gas-Chromatography with a Mass Selective Detector spectrometer (GC-MSD). The fingerprints were successfully used to differentiate PHELA from another common herbal product made from Hypericum perforatum (St. John's Wort), thereby illustrating its high potential for use in fingerprinting of PHELA and in differentiating it from other herbal medicines. By validating the different chromatographic techniques on the standardized extraction methods, this approach will enable wide application in quality control of PHELA using acceptable procedures, thereby promoting effective monitoring of the finished product in all countries where it will be used.  (+info)

Evaluation of traditional medicines III: the mechanism of immune modulation by PHELA. (8/9)

PHELA is a herbal traditional medicine that is under development for use as an immune booster in immune compromised individuals. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine PHELA's mechanism of action by observing for changes in cytokine profiles. Four groups of Sprague Dawley rats (n = 8) were treated daily and separately with normal-saline, cyclosporine-A, PHELA-only and PHELA+ cyclosporine-A. Thereafter, 4 animals from each group were sacrificed after 7 and 14 days of treatment. Serum Th1 cytokines (IL-2, IFN-gamma and TNF-alpha) and Th2 cytokines (IL-4 and IL-10) were measured by ELISA. The concentrations of Th1 cytokines in the PHELA-only treated group were similar to the control group on days 7 and 14. However, the Th1 cytokines were higher in the PHELA+cyclosporine-A treated group compared to cyclosporine-A group, and cyclosporine-A concentrations were similar in both groups. These results show that PHELA did not stimulate Th1 cytokines of a normal immune system but stimulated them when the immune system was suppressed by cyclosporine-A. In conclusion, PHELA is an immune-stimulant to a compromised immune system.  (+info)

anting Day. Mrs. Madhulika, from the non-profit company Vaanprrasth, did a presentation teaching us about air-purifying plants. Then, we took cuttings off of the spider plants that we planted last year and planted them into soil. With our buddy classes, each student planted their own spider plant. Once their young spider plant becomes established, each student will take their plant home. Students can practice their "green" skills at home by raising their spider plant until they can take cuttings off of it and plant more plants from it.. The students also planted many new spider plants for our communal garden. In total, we planted 186 spider plants during this years Planting Day!

Significant reductions in drug concentrations with smoking have been reported for caffeine, chlorpromazine, clozapine, flecainide, fluvoxamine, haloperidol, mexiletine, olanzapine, proprandol, and tacrine due to increased metabolism of these drugs. Smokers may therefore require higher doses than nonsmokers in order to achieve pharmacological responses [76].

But providing morphological evidence for these sulphur-metabolizing bacteria hasnt been as easy as just digging up some stones. The first detection came in 2007 at Strelley Pool, a now arid area which may have once been an estuary or shallow water region. Associated with micrometre-sized pyrite crystals, these microstructures show all the right ingredients for early life properties, such as hollow cell lumens and carbonaceous cell walls enriched in nitrogen. Spheroidal and ellipsoidal forms are good indicators of bacterial formations and tubular sheaths point to multiple cell growth. They also display pyrite content, but theres no "fools gold" here in these light isotopes… its a metabolic by-products of the cells ...

A field study was carried out to determine the prevalence of Bovine parasitic otitis in the semi arid (hot dry) and the high potential (cold humid) areas of Kenya. A prevalence ranging from 27.3% to 78.3% was recorded in the semi arid areas of Kajiado and of between 5% and 13.6% in the high potential areas of Makuyu (Hurang~a) where the disease also occurred ina less severe form. There was a significant difference in the prevalence (P , 0.001) and severity of the disease between the two agro-ecological regions. However~ the observations in the semi arid areas were comparable to what have been reporteq_ from the hot and humid (coastal) areas where the disease is known to be more prevalent. Rhabditis (Rh) boyis alone was found to be associated with the infection in the semi arid while Rh . bovis and Rh. blumi in separate or mixed infection were identified from the high potential areas. Where it occurred alone 7 Rh. blumi was found to be associated with mild and chronic cases. Rb. bovis was not ...

The taxonomy of the group has varied widely. In the APG III system of 2009, adopted here, the Agavoideae is defined very broadly to include the former family Agavaceae along with other formerly separate families such as Anemarrhenaceae, Chlorogalaceae, Hostaceae, Yuccaceae, Anthericaceae, Hesperocallidaceae and Chlorogalaceae. This is based on data from molecular systematics.[3] Stevens comments that "The broad concept of Agavoideae [...] may not seem very satisfactory" but that none of the alternatives is better.[2] Sources prior to 2009 will still have Agavaceae (in varying circumscriptions) as a separate family and may contain varying numbers of other families included in Agavoideae in the APG III system.. Some genera formerly placed in this group (under whatever name) have been separated off; e.g. Dracaena, which superficially resembles some species of Agave, is currently placed in the subfamily Nolinoideae.[1]. ...
Aim: This study was conducted on Ouled Djellal ewes in arid area of south-east Algeria in order to reveal the influence of altitude and landforms on some hematological and biochemical parameters.. Materials and Methods: A total of 160 ewes having 3-5 years of age, multiparous, non-pregnant, non-lactating and reared in arid areas of South East Algeria were included. Blood samples were divided according to factors of altitude and landform (plain region at 150 m above sea level, tableland region at 600 m above sea level and mountain region at 1000 m above sea level). The whole blood was analyzed for hematology, and plasma samples for biochemical analysis.. Results: The study found lowest glucose concentrations were detected in tableland region at 600 m. In plain region at 150 m, ewes had a higher (p,0.01) concentration of cholesterol and triglyceride. Furthermore, a higher concentration of total proteins (p,0.01) and urea (p,0.05) were detected in plain region at 150 m. The average blood creatinine ...

Nitrogen-fixing plant roots, Senegal. Farmer comparing the roots of a plant that was inoculated with nitrogen-fixing bacteria (left) with the roots of an ordinary plant (right). These crops were planted in an arid area in Senegal, near the border with Mauritania. The growth of the left-hand plant was aided by adding the nitrogen-fixing bacteria Rhizobium. This bacterium colonised the roots, and converted nitrogen in the atmosphere to nutrients for the plant. This can increase yields in arid areas, as well as reducing the use of fertilisers. - Stock Image C002/6571
Arid areas are particularly affected, because vegetation in these regions reacts more sensitively to air pollutants. Ultimately, soil erosion increases and salt lakes and arid areas expand. Already the southern Russian desert is increasing by 500 square kilometres every year. Climate predictions suggest that the Eurasian steppe belt between Austria and China will continue to grow. Even parts of Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony must expect increasing aridity in the future. In the last 50 years alone precipitation in northern Saxony in the summer months has declined by up to 25 per cent. The changing climate will mean that the effects of the pollutants already present in the atmosphere will be intensified and thus accelerate the climate-changing processes. Knowledge about the behaviour of environmental pollutants in changed climate conditions is of great importance, in order for strategies to be developed to contain the impacts of climate change ...

Camassia is a genus of six bulb-forming species endemic to North America that have figured prominently in the culture and sustenance of native peoples. In western North America they form a conspicuous element of wet meadows and forest openings. Species and, especially, subspecies delimitations have been problematic. Further, several hypothesized phylogenetic and biogeographic scenarios for the origin and diversification of the genus remain untested. We estimated the phylogeny of Camassia using two noncoding plastid DNA regions: rpl16 intron and trnD-trnY-trnE-trnT spacers, with the goals of evaluating 1) the delimitation of species and 2) Goulds hypotheses for the origin of species and infraspecific taxa. Maximum parsimony and Bayesian analyses provided concordant estimates of the phylogeny consistent with the monophyly of eastern American C. scilloides and western American C. howellii and C. leichtlinii. Two western American species were found to be paraphyletic-C. cusickii weakly so, but C. ...
Seeds: Extremely small, weighting about 0,03 mg. These small seeds (also known as dust diaspores) can be blown about like dust particles without any special devices for buoyancy. In this species, enormous numbers of seeds are produced at the cost of fewer, larger sized seeds. Because this plant occur abundantly in the arid areas and has specific habitat requirements, the production of increased numbers of seeds is essential to enhance the probability that at least some seeds will reach a favourable germination site. Except for their small size, these diaspores generally lack other appendages to further promote dispersal by wind. Several genera of the Crassulaceae, e.g. Crassula, Tylecodon and Cotyledon, occurring in the arid areas of southern Africa have very tiny dust-like seeds. The production of numerous dust-like seeds by desert species serves as an escape strategy to prevent mass consumption of seeds. These tiny seeds are carried by the wind to cracks and furrows in the soil and are then ...

This bat roosts in caves, mines and in some cases in abandoned buildings and tunnels, often in colonies of several thousand. It emerges about an hour after sunset to feed on cactus fruit, nectar and pollen of plants in several families (Agavaceae, Cactaceae, Bombacaceae; Fleming and Nassar 2002). It lands on the flowers or may hover for short periods to feed. Night roosts, including buildings, are used after feeding (Reid 1997). It is associated with thorn scrubs, spiny forests and dry forests, and is highly dependent on columnar cacti and agaves (Fleming and Nassar 2002, Nassar et al. 2003). The ecosystem is restricted, fragmented throughout its range, and mostly outside protected areas in all countries. This species is "keystone" in its ecosystem as a long-distance pollinator and seed disperser of agave and columnar cacti (and other plants associated with the habitat type). Direct and indirect evidence indicate that this species is migratory, however, not all subpopulations migrate annually ...

One risk of having house plants is that some of them are poisonous. If you have pets or children, its important to know what varieties of plants you have, and whether or not they are toxic. Both flowering plants and foliage plants can be poisonous. Some common poisonous house plants are Dieffenbachia, Poinsettia, Cyclamen, Philodendrons, and Sago Palm, just to name a few. Unfortunately, some of these poisonous plants are among the best indoor plants for beginners to grow. Websites dont agree whether Spider Plants are poisonous, but I would consider them so just to be safe. Keeping poisonous plants in flower pots high up on indoor plant stands or plant hangers can help minimize the risk to children and pets.. The New York Botanical Garden website contains a list of common poisonous house plants as well as guidelines for dealing with a poisoning. They state that its important to know what plant has been consumed as well as the quantity, and list local and national poison control hotline phone ...

On two visits to the Kalahari Gemsbok Reserve in 1956 and 1957, arranged by the National Parks Board, as well as on other journeys to arid areas, I noticed that some very black tenebrionid beetles were active even in the hottest part of the day when the sand was so hot that it was most uncomfortable for me to walk about barefooted. In a comparatively cool period in February 1957, the surface soil temperature was 57�C., while the air temperature at 12 cm. above the ground was 46�C. These observations drew my attention to the question of how these insects are able to tolerate such high temperatures.
Richard Perry with Helen Ingram, and John Whiteley Many predict that by the end of this century water will dominate world natural resources politics as oil does today. Access to water is widely regarded as a basic human right, and was declared so by the United Nations in 1992. And yet the water crisis grows: although the total volume of water on the planet may be sufficient for our needs, much of it is misallocated, wasted, or polluted, and the poorest of the poor live in arid areas where water is scarce. The coming decade will require new perspectives on water resources and reconsideration of the principles of water governance and policy. Water, Place, and Equity argues that fairness in the allocation of water will be a cornerstone to a more equitable ands secure future for humankind. With analyses and case studies, it demonstrates that considerations of equity are more important in formulating and evaluating water policy than the more commonly invoked notions of efficiency and markets.

Arid environments cover almost half the earths land surface and embrace a considerable range of environmental conditions. Terms such as arid, desert, and dryland are commonly used interchangeably and without strict scientific usage, though "arid" is also used as a formal division of drylands within the widely used classification scheme in UN Environment Programme 1997 (cited under Defining Arid Areas). Arid environments are characterized by an overall moisture deficit, often expressed as annual precipitation being less, often significantly less, than potential evapotranspiration. Consequently, soil moisture levels are low, which has impacts for plant and animal life and for the geomorphic processes that shape arid regions. Systematic scientific study of arid environments grew throughout the 20th century, prompted by the realization of a lack of robust scientific knowledge of these regions, and, from the 1950s and particularly 1970s onward, by concerns surrounding human usage, the occurrence of ...
The Kalahari plays host to a range of herbivores of which springbok Antidorcas marsupialis (Zimmermann, 1780) are characteristic. It has even been suggested that the Kalahari springbok be declared a distinct subspecies (Bigalke 1970, Peters & Brink 1992). Springbok morphology and anatomy have been studied in detail (Skinner & Louw 1996), but there are few indepth ecological studies of springbok in the Kalahari. Studies on the morphology and anatomy of the springbok show that they are well suited to arid areas and are able to cope well with changing environmental pressures (Louw & Seely, 1982; Mills & Retief, 1984; Spinage & Matlhare, 1992; Skinner & Louw, 1996; Skinner & Moss, 2004). Springbok are selective feeders (Bothma et al. 2002) and the quality of their diet is a significant driving force behind their behaviour and movements (Mills & Retief 1984). They have an exceptionally high annual population growth of 35 to 45% (Mills & Haagner, 1989; Conroy 2005).. Recent declining springbok ...

Examination of the bulbs of Lilium pumilum (Liliaceae) led to the isolation of four novel steroidal glycosides (1-4) with a 2,3,4-trisubstituted β-d-glucopyranosyl unit. In 1 and 3, the α-L-arabinopyranosyl moiety is linked to C-3 of the inner trisubstituted β-D-glucopyranosyl group and is present as an usual 4C1 conformation. In contrast, in 2 and 4, the α-L-arabinopyranosyl moiety, which is attached to C-4 of the inner trisubstituted β-D-glucopyranosyl group, is present as a 1C4 conformation. The structures of the new steroidal glycosides were determined based on the results of spectroscopic analyses, including two-dimensional (2D) NMR data and hydrolysis.
Inland Aquaculture Inland freshwater fisheries are important in less arid areas such as the Caprivi and Okavango regions in the North East and the Omusati, Kunene and Oshana regions in the North West . Commercial freshwater aquaculture of tilapia ( Oreochromis andersonii) and catfish ( Clarias gariepinus) is currently undertaken at all aquaculture establishments throughout the country.. About 50% of the rural population live in the northern regions and derive food, income and informal employment from inland fish resources. Inland aquaculture includes on-land facilities and utilizes ponds, tanks, and enclosures that are dependent upon the culturists for maintenance of water quality, food supply, and waste removal.. ...

Trait (biology)Trait (biology)

A trait may be any single feature or quantifiable measurement of an organism. However, the most useful traits for genetic analysis are present in different forms in different individuals.. A visible trait is the final product of many molecular and biochemical processes. In most cases, information starts with DNA traveling to RNA and finally to protein (ultimately affecting organism structure and function). This is the Central Dogma of molecular biology as stated by Francis Crick.. This information flow may also be followed through the cell as it travels from the DNA in the nucleus, to the Cytoplasm, to the Ribosomes and the Endoplasmic Reticulum, and finally to the Golgi Apparatus, which may package the final products for export outside the cell.. ...

Night monkeyNight monkey

see text. The night monkeys, also known as the owl monkeys or douroucoulis, are the members of the genus Aotus of New World monkeys (monotypic in family Aotidae). They are widely distributed in the forests of Central and South America, from Panama south to Paraguay and northern Argentina. The species that live at higher elevations tend to have thicker fur than the monkeys at sea level. The genus name means "earless"; they have ears, of course, but the external ears are tiny and hard to see. Night monkeys have big brown eyes and therefore have increased ability to be active at night. They are called night monkeys because all species are active at night and are in fact the only truly nocturnal monkeys (an exception is the subspecies Aotus azarae azarae, which is cathemeral).[2] Both male and female Night Monkeys weigh almost the same amount. For example, in one of these Night Monkeys, A. azarae, the male weighs 2.76 pounds while the female weighs 2.75 pounds.. Night monkeys make a notably wide ...
