A comparison of three methods for determining the stomatal density of pine needles. (1/95)

Alternative methods were compared for determining the stomatal density of needles from two pine species. Densities estimated from air-dried, whole needles using a binocular dissecting scope were compared to densities estimated from vacuum-dried, intact needles using a scanning electron microscope and expanded peels (or macerated cuticles) using a compound light microscope. Differences among methods were expected from two sources: (1) expansion and shrinkage as a function of water content, and (2) differences in geometry of the measured surface. Estimates from the dissecting scope were similar to those from scanning electron microscopy (t=0.509, n=21, P:=0.62), presumably because both used dried, but otherwise intact whole needles. Light microscopy estimates, however, were lower than dissecting scope estimates (t=-2.307, n=13, P:=0.04). After adjusting for expansion due to hydration and changes in needle geometry, differences disappeared (t=-1.205, n=13, P:=0.25). These results are an important consideration for researchers reconstructing palaeo-atmospheric conditions and assessing plant response to environmental change.  (+info)

The Green Revolution: botanical contributions to forensics and drug enforcement. (2/95)

Forensic botany encompasses many sub-disciplines, including plant anatomy, plant ecology, plant systematics, plant molecular biology, palynology, and limnology. Although the field of forensic botany has been recognized since the mid-1900's, the use of trace plant material as physical evidence in criminal casework is still novel. A review of published forensic casework that used plant evidence is presented here. Cases include the analysis of wood evidence in the Charles Lindbergh baby kidnapping, the use of pollen in establishing the location of a sexual assault, and pollen analysis to determine the time of year for burial in a mass grave. Additional cases discuss the use of plant growth rates to determine the time of a body deposit in a field, the use of diatoms to link individuals to a crime scene, and plant DNA typing to match seedpods to a tree under which a body was discovered. New DNA methods in development for plant species identification and individualization for forensic applications are also discussed. These DNA methods may be useful for linking an individual to a crime scene or physical evidence to a geographic location, or tracking marijuana distribution patterns.  (+info)

UV-excited chlorophyll fluorescence as a tool for the assessment of UV-protection by the epidermis of plants. (3/95)

Recently, a new method for estimating epidermal transmission of UV radiation in higher plants has been proposed. The empirical evidence for the usefulness of this method is reviewed here. Direct comparison with spectroscopically determined epidermal transmission yielded equivalent results. A linear correlation to the concentration of epidermal screening compounds has been shown. Relating UV-A and UV-B absorbance allowed some preliminary conclusions about the chemical nature of the screening compounds. A new portable apparatus is presented for the first time, which allows the non-destructive assessment of UV-A screening even under field conditions. Repeated measurements on identical leaves over a time-course of 6 d demonstrated a strong age-dependence in the capacity for the synthesis of UV-A screening compounds upon exposure to UV-B radiation. It is concluded that the new method may provide a valuable tool for the investigation of the acclimation of plants to UV-B radiation and, when accompanied by HPLC analysis, of the reaction of phenolic metabolism to environmental stimuli.  (+info)

Regulation of potassium transport in leaves: from molecular to tissue level. (5/95)

Over millions of years, plants have evolved a sophisticated network of K+ transport systems. This Botanical Briefing provides an overview of K+ transporters in various leaf tissues (epidermis, mesophyll, guard cells and vascular system) at both the cellular and organelle levels. Despite the tremendous progress in our knowledge of genes encoding K+ transport systems in plants, understanding has not developed of coordinated functioning and operation of these genes or proteins in the context of whole plant physiology and plant-environment interaction. This Botanical Briefing is aimed at filling that gap by analysing electrophysiological and molecular evidence for mechanisms coordinating K+ transport between various leaf cells and tissues in changing environments.  (+info)

Gas exchange measurements, what can they tell us about the underlying limitations to photosynthesis? Procedures and sources of error. (6/95)

The principles, equipment and procedures for measuring leaf and canopy gas exchange have been described previously as has chlorophyll fluorescence. Simultaneous measurement of the responses of leaf gas exchange and modulated chlorophyll fluorescence to light and CO2 concentration now provide a means to determine a wide range of key biochemical and biophysical limitations on photo synthesis in vivo. Here the mathematical frameworks and practical procedures for determining these parameters in vivo are consolidated. Leaf CO2 uptake (A) versus intercellular CO2 concentration (Ci) curves may now be routinely obtained from commercial gas exchange systems. The potential pitfalls, and means to avoid these, are examined. Calculation of in vivo maximum rates of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate (RuBP) carboxylase/oxygenase (Rubisco) carboxylation (Vc,max), electron transport driving regeneration of RuBP (Jmax), and triose-phosphate utilization (VTPU) are explained; these three parameters are now widely assumed to represent the major limitations to light-saturated photosynthesis. Precision in determining these in intact leaves is improved by the simultaneous measurement of electron transport via modulated chlorophyll fluorescence. The A/Ci response also provides a simple practical method for quantifying the limitation that stomata impose on CO2 assimilation. Determining the rate of photorespiratory release of oxygen (Rl) has previously only been possible by isotopic methods, now, by combining gas exchange and fluorescence measurements, Rl may be determined simply and routinely in the field. The physical diffusion of CO2 from the intercellular air space to the site of Rubisco in C3 leaves has long been suspected of being a limitation on photosynthesis, but it has commonly been ignored because of the lack of a practical method for its determination. Again combining gas exchange and fluorescence provides a means to determine mesophyll conductance. This method is described and provides insights into the magnitude and basis of this limitation.  (+info)

Screening of inbred lines to develop a thermotolerant sunflower hybrid using the temperature induction response (TIR) technique: a novel approach by exploiting residual variability. (7/95)

Plants, when exposed to sub-lethal stress (induction stress), develop the ability to withstand severe temperatures and this phenomenon is often referred to as acquired thermotolerance. Earlier it was reported that induction stress alters gene expression and brings greater adaptation to heat stress and that the genetic variability in thermotolerance is only seen upon induction stress. Based on this concept, the temperature induction response (TIR) technique has been developed to identify thermotolerant lines. By following the TIR technique, sunflower hybrid KBSH-1 parents were screened for high temperature tolerance. Seedlings of parental lines including CMS 234 A, CMS 234 B and 6 D-1 showed considerable genetic variability for thermotolerance and it was attributed to the expression of existing residual variability for stress responses. Thus, the existing variability forms the basis for identifying thermotolerant lines. The identified parental inbred lines were selected and established in the field and crossed to get F1 hybrid seeds. The KBSH-1 hybrid developed from selected variants of parental lines was compared with the original KBSH-1 for thermotolerance. The selected KBSH-1 was more tolerant compared with the original hybrid both at the seedling as well as at the plant level. The physiological and molecular basis of thermotolerance was studied in the KBSH-1 original and the hybrid developed from selected variants of parental lines. The selected hybrid exhibited high tolerance to Menadione (naphthoquinone)-induced oxidative stress. Even the methyl viologen-induced oxidative stress damage was relatively less in the selected hybrid population. The selected hybrid also showed enhanced expression of the heat shock proteins HSP 90 and HSP 104 and also accumulated higher levels of the heat shock transcription factor HSFA.  (+info)

Impetus for sowing and the beginning of agriculture: ground collecting of wild cereals. (8/95)

The Agricultural Revolution in Western Asia, which took place some 11,000 years ago, was a turning point in human history [Childe, V. G. (1952) New Light on the Most Ancient East (Routledge & Kegan Paul, London)]. In investigating the cultural processes that could have led from gathering to intentional cultivation, various authors have discussed and tested wild cereal harvesting techniques. Some argue that Near Eastern foragers gathered grains by means of sickle harvesting, uprooting, plucking (hand stripping), or beating into baskets [Hillman, G. C. & Davies, M. S. (1999) in Prehistory of Agriculture: New Experimental and Ethnographic Approaches, ed. Anderson, P. (The Institute of Archaeology, University of California, Los Angeles), pp. 70-102]. During systematic experiments, we found that archaeobotanical data from regional Neolithic sites support ground collection of grains by early hunter-gatherers. Ground collecting suits the natural shattering of wild species that ripen and drop grains at the beginning of summer. We show that continual collection off the ground from May to October would have provided surplus grains for deliberate sowing in more desirable fields, and facilitate the transition to intentional cultivation. Because ground gathering enabled collectors to observe that fallen seeds are responsible for the growth of new plants in late fall, they became aware of the profitability of sowing their surplus seeds for next year's food. Ground collecting of wild barley and wild wheat may comprise the missing link between seed collecting by hunter-gatherers and cereal harvesting by early farmers.  (+info)

University of Wyoming botany Professor Greg Brown has added a new honor to his list of achievements: A new genus of plants has been named after him.. Gregbrownia is a member of the Bromeliaceae family -- commonly known as the pineapple family. The plants have a large rosette (about 1 meter in diameter) of long, strap-shaped leaves and a large cluster of flowers, ranging from yellow-green to white. The rosette of leaves also will hold a large volume of water. Members of the genus can grow either on trees or land, and are found in the Andes Mountains of northern Peru and Ecuador. The genus has four species: Gregbrownia brownii, Gregbrownia fulgens, Gregbrownia hutchisonii and Gregbrownia lyman-smithii.. Brown specializes in plant systematics, a branch of botany that involves the identification, naming, classification and evolution of plants. His research focuses on the Bromeliaceae family..

Alvar Palmgren (28 April 1880 - 30 November 1960) was a Finnish botanist and plant ecologist. Palmgren studied botany at the University of Helsinki under professor J.P. Norrlin. He graduated (Fil.kand.) in 1906 and obtained his Ph.D. in 1914. He became docent of botany at the University of Helsinki 1916 and professor of botany at the same university in 1928 (from 1938, the first in the special Swedish-language chair of botany). He retired in 1950. Palmgren worked as a systematic botanist with microspecies of Taraxacum, Hieracium and other genera. As an ecologist, he worked of the nature of plant communities. He supported the ideas of Henry Gleason on the individualistic behaviour of species in community assembly already from the 1920s. Palmgren wrote early accounts on the role of isolation and stochastic events in the distribution of species, while his contemporary biology was largely deterministic. In the 1920s, Palmgren entered in a heated dispute with the Swiss botanist and phytogeographer ...

Systematics Section/ASPT. Kates , Heather Rose [1], SOLTIS, PAMELA S. [2], Soltis, Douglas E. [2]. A phylogenetic study of the wild and domesticated pumpkins and squashes (Cucurbita, Cucurbitaceae) based on microfluidic PCR and next generation sequencing of 48 nuclear loci.. Phylogenetics can aid the study of plant domestication by resolving sister relationships between crops and their wild relatives, thereby identifying the ancestors of cultivated plants. Our preliminary phylogenetic study of Cucurbita (pumpkins and squashes) using five nuclear loci did not find strong support for some of the currently held domestication hypotheses and ecological divisions in the genus, demonstrating the need for increased genetic sampling. An updated phylogenetic study of Cucurbita using 48 loci derived from introns of single-copy nuclear genes provides new insight into relationships between wild and domesticated species and into the evolution of the two ecologically distinct types of Cucurbita. The keys to ...
Background and Aims. The TERMINAL FLOWER 1 (TFL1) gene is pivotal in the control of inflorescence architecture in arabidopsis. Thus, tfl1 mutants flower early and have a very short inflorescence phase, while TFL1-overexpressing plants have extended vegetative and inflorescence phases, producing many coflorescences. TFL1 is expressed in the shoot meristems, never in the flowers. In the inflorescence apex, TFL1 keeps the floral genes LEAFY (LFY) and APETALA1 (AP1) restricted to the flower, while LFY and AP1 restrict TFL1 to the inflorescence meristem. In spite of the central role of TFL1 in inflorescence architecture, regulation of its expression is poorly understood. This study aims to expand the understanding of inflorescence development by identifying and studying novel TFL1 regulators.. Methods. Mutagenesis of an Arabidopsis thaliana line carrying a TFL1::GUS (β-glucuronidase) reporter construct was used to isolate a mutant with altered TFL1 expression. The mutated gene was identified by ...

Viviparity (from the Latin vivus (living) and parere (to beget), literally giving live birth), both in zoology and in botany refers to certain classes of modes of reproduction, though it has different meanings in the two contexts. The adjective viviparous is derived from viviparity and describes both the various modes of reproduction and the organisms that reproduce in any such mode. In zoology viviparity refers to development of the embryo inside the body of the parent, eventually leading to live birth, as opposed to reproduction by laying eggs that complete their incubation outside the parental body. There are several forms of reproductive processes that answer to that description however, and they differ so radically, both in their nature and evolutionary origin, that no definitive and exclusive terminology is universally accepted, and the usage of the term is largely a matter of convenience and preference. In botany vivipary is a common alternative form of the term, and botanical ...

Chitinases play a role in the development and physiology of plants and in stress responses. The model object of this project is a carnivorous plant, Drosera rotundifolia L., from which the gene for chitinase (DrChit) involved in digestive processes of prey was isolated. As chitinous cell wall of fungal pathogens is also degraded by chitinases that are expressed during the plant defense, the DrChit has a potential use in biotechnology aimed at the plant resistance reinforcement. Here we focus on the isolation and purification of DrChit protein, its biochemical characterization and antifungal potential determination. Next, we will isolate and characterize the other genes with the carnivorous expression profile. To clarify the role of chitinases in defense, the chitinase expression profiles in embryogenic cultures of conifers exposed to abiotic stress will be evaluated as well. We suppose these results may contribute to the development of strategies for plant resistance to stress by genetic ...
The intention of this review is to discuss floral initiation of horticultural trees. Floral initiation is best understood for herbaceous species, especially at the molecular level, so a brief overview of the control of floral initiation of Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh.) precedes the discussion of trees. Four major pathways to flowering have been characterized in Arabidopsis, including environmental induction through photoperiod and temperature, autonomous floral initiation, and regulation by gibberellins. Tropical trees are generally induced to flower through environmental cues, whereas floral initiation of temperate deciduous trees is often autonomous. In the tropical evergreen tree mango, Mangifera indica L., cool temperature is the only factor known to induce flowering, but does not ensure floral initiation will occur because there are important interactions with vegetative growth. The temperate deciduous tree apple, Malus domestica Borkh., flowers autonomously, with floral ...

All of Nebraskas native and naturalized species of vascular plants-ferns, fern allies, conifers and flowering plants are presented here in a list, browsable by family, genus and common name. Weve added a few species that appear to have escaped cultivation and are persisting or potentially could do so.. Also present are some commonly cultivated plants that do not escape and become established as part of the flora, but tend to re-seed easily in gardens (petunias or bachelor buttons, e.g.) or persist as abandoned plantings around old home sites (lilac and mock-orange, e.g.) These are sometimes mistaken for naturalized species. Also included on the list are a few native species that occur in adjacent states and are expected in Nebraska.. The species list was developed during preparation of The Flora of Nebraska manual. Nearly all entries were confirmed by field collections or examination of herbarium voucher specimens.. ...
The aim of this project is to explore these two alternatives by quantifying existing patterns of occurrence and impacts of insect herbivores on Cirsium arvense by experimentally testing for direct and indirect effects of non-overlapping insect herbivore guilds on plant performance and population density and build integral projection model describing the population dynamics of the species to model the demographic consequences of these data. This research will contribute to development of safe, effective weed management that will limit the invasiveness of weedy and exotic plants ...
More sets of chromosomes usually equates to more DNA. Since 1967, weve known how many chromosomes are found in the cells of most of the New Zealand hebes, but we havent known how much DNA they hold. The amount of DNA that all sets of chromosomes contain is called genome size. Prior to this study, the genome sizes of 40 species of Veronica were known, but only one of those was from the Southern Hemisphere.. For the new study, we measured genome size in 174 individuals representing 102 species, including 54 species from New Zealand and Australia. We now know that all hebes and speedwells have relatively small genome sizes (0.26-3.19 picograms) compared to other plants and animals, roughly comparable to that of rice in this figure.. In general, Southern Hemisphere Veronica plants have more DNA (larger genomes) than most of the Northern Hemisphere species. But when we compare the amount of DNA in one chromosome set only, Southern Hemisphere Veronica plants tended to have less DNA (smaller ...
Systematics Section/ASPT. Tungmunnithum, Duangjai [1]. Morphological and Molecular Evidences of the Greatest Variable Monochoria Species in Thailand.. Monochoria vaginalis (Burm.f.) C. Presl ex Kunth is a member of the family Pontederiaceae, distributes in tropical and subtropical Asia, Africa, and Australia. M.vaginalis exhibits great variation in leaf, inflorescent, number of flower per inflorescence and floral parts, so its well known as the highest morphological variable species within the genus Monochoria. This morphological plasticity has made its taxonomic status still unclear. Previous studies about this taxon is mainly focused on morphology from herbarium specimens and a few living plants, thus some easily observed characters from the living specimens are absent from descriptions and keys in all worldwide revision works and previous published floras. Though M.vaginalis has already reported in the Flora of Thailand for a decade that it is a single species without any intraspecific taxa, ...

Dormant buds of mango (mangifera indica L. cv. Langra ) exposed to acute gamma-irradiation dosages of 1.0, 2.0, 3.0,4.0, 5.0 and 6.0 kiloroentgens (KR), were grafted on to one-year-old seedling stock. Dosages of 2.0 and 3.0 KR were found satisfactory for the purpose , as measued by bud lethality and scion growth. A bud graft from 3.0 KR bore fruits of excellent quantity . compared with the control, the fruits were heavier , largere and had more creamish- yellow pulp. None of the other morphological changes expressed by the mutant fruits , observed over three fruiting seasons, were disadvantageous . the tree habit is being further investigated before the mutant can be considered for release as an iproved cultivar ...
Biogeography. Havran, J [1], McCauley, Ross [2]. Preliminary phylogeny of the endemic Hawaiian genus Nototrichium.. The genus Nototrichium (Amaranthaceae) contains three species of shrubs to small trees endemic to the Hawaiian archipelago. Previous molecular systematic studies have demonstrated that Nototrichium is sister to the widespread tropical genus Achyranthes. Due to similarities in flower morphology and woody growth form, the Norfolk Island endemic Achyranthes arborescens is hypothesized to be sister to Nototrichium. We investigated the molecular systematic relationships between species of Nototrichium and Pacific species of Achyranthes. DNA from each species of Nototrichium (N. sandwicense, N. humile, and N. divaricatum) occurring on each Hawaiian island and species of Pacific Achyranthes was extracted from leaf materials obtained from field collections, herbarium specimens, and DNA libraries. The Internal Transcribed Spacer sequences and several chloroplast regions were amplified and ...
Environmental, immunological and genetic factors together play a role in the pathogenesis of Celiac Disease (Binder, 2008). The environmental factor includes gliadin, the alcohol-soluble fraction of gluten protein in wheat that upon interaction with the immune components of the human body, leads to the malabsorptive symptoms of this disease (Kumar et al., 2010). An immunological factor is suspected from the detection of IgA antigliadin, IgA antiendomysial and IgA anti-tTG antibodies in the patients serum (Binder, 2008). The genetic factor involves the expression of a particular MHC-I allele in 0.5% to 1% of Europeans (Kumar et al., 2010). This gene resides on chromosome 6p (Stewart, 2007). It codes for a specific HLA molecule in these individuals, i.e., HLA-DQ2 or HLA-DQ8 (Kumar et al., 2010 ...

The present survey reports 749 recent collections made by Dennis Wall, Brent Mishler, Dan Norris, and Tamrya d Artenay. 16 new records for this island were found, bringing the current flora to 93 species. Using GIS software, maps showing the locations of collections were produced and ...
The aim of the current study was to synthesize Zinc nanoparticles (ZnNPs) of Eriobotrya japonica, their characterization using standard procedures and its screening for various pharmacological activities; antibacterial, antifungal, phytotoxic and heamaglutination in comparison with the methanolic, ethanolicand Ethyl acetate (EtOAc) fractions. The UV-Visible absorption spectra of ZnNPs showed peaks at 455 nm and Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) confirmed the presence of various functional groups such as, hydroxyl, amide, carbonyl, aldehyde, and alkynes. The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) analysis showed that the particle size was between 30-60 nm with spherical shape. The presence of Zinc along with other elements, such as C, O, S, Si, and K, was confirmed by Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX), andthe mean size was 33nm as indicated in X-ray diffraction (XRD) spectra. The results of percent antibacterial activity for the methanolic, ethanolic and EtOAc fractions of E. japonica ...

Evidently, Polytrichum commune rarely produces sporangia in Central Florida, as we have We have o such specimens in the USF herbarium. I can only speculate on the reasons for this. In order for sporangia to form, sperm cells must swim from the tip of a stem where they are produced to the tip of a stem where eggs are being produced. The large size of Polytrichum commune would make the conditions where this process could take place rather rare, particularly in the relatively hot and dry climate of Central Florida. The species is at its southern limit here. The one specimen with sporangia Ive seen was collected in northern Florida ...
Evolutionary Developmental Biology (Evo-Devo). Yoo, Mi-Jeong [1], Koh, Jin [1], Soltis, Pamela S. [2], Soltis, Douglas E. [1]. Analysis of expression patterns of MADS-box gene homologues in Nymphaea odorata (Nymphaeaceae).. NYMPHAEA odorata Ait (Nymphaeaceae) possesses an undifferentiated outer and inner perianth and exhibits a gradual transformation from petaloid staminodes to functional stamens. To provide insights into the developmental genetics of the indistinct outer and inner perianth and the transformation series of staminodes in N. odorata, we examined the expression patterns of homologues of A, B, C, and E-function MADS-box genes. We isolated and characterized seven MADS-box gene homologues from N. odorata. Phylogenetic analyses revealed that they belong to the SQUA, DEF, GLO, SEP, and AGL6 gene lineages, and we refer to them as Nyod.AP1, Nyod.AP3, Nyod.PI, Nyod.AG1, Nyod.AG2, Nyod.SEP1, and Nyod.AGL6. The expression patterns of these genes in different floral organs were investigated ...

A revered botanist at the Academy of Natural Sciences who first profiled and then named the delta bulrush says the plant has natural properties that could help reduce the impact of the Gulf oil spill on the Mississippi delta.. Dr. Alfred Ernest Schuyler, the Academys curator emeritus of botany and a prominent botanist in the international science community, is urging all sides involved in the crisis to give this slender sedge family member a hard look as they weigh their spill-fighting strategies.. Schuyler described and named Scirpus deltarum, now known as Schoenoplectus deltarum the delta bulrush, in 1970 after doing field research in the Mississippi delta. Based on the detoxification properties of similar bulrush species, Schuyler thinks the delta bulrush could be instrumental in decomposing the oil and reducing its impact on other threatened marsh plants.. He says a close relative of the delta bulrush, the common three-square (Schoenoplectus pungens), can transmit oxygen to underwater ...
Beggiatoa is a genus of bacteria in the order Thiotrichales. They are named after the Italian medic and botanist F. S. Beggiato. The organisms live in sulfur-rich environments. During his research in Anton de Barys laboratory of botany in 1887, Russian botanist Sergei Winogradsky found that Beggiatoa oxidized hydrogen sulfide (H2S) as an energy source, forming intracellular sulfur droplets. Winogradsky referred to this form of metabolism as inorgoxidation (oxidation of inorganic compounds). The finding represented the first discovery of lithotrophy.[2][3] Two species of Beggiatoa have been formally described: the type species Beggiatoa alba, and Beggiatoa leptomitoformis, the latter of which was only published in 2017.[4] ...

growing on a remote mountainside in Hong Kong, but how it got there is a mystery - especially since it is sterile. The missionary collector subsequently propagated it in the grounds of the nearby Pokfulam Sanatorium, and from there it was introduced to the Hong Kong Botanic Gardens and across the world. Originally described as a new species in 1908, it was subsequently named after the Hong Kong governor Sir Henry Blake, who had a strong interest in botany. We have an opportunity to get a glimpse into this fascinating history by carrying out a crowdfunding project to determine its entire genetic make up.. In addition, its a project we are trying to get everyone involved in: from gardeners to botanists, historians to photographers, university researchers to school children - really, anyone interested in being a part of Hong Kongs First Emblematic Genome Project and understanding the biological secrets of this unique flower..

Describing her first visit with Steven Foster in 1977, Harvard University botanist, Dr. Shiu Ying Hu (1908-2012), wrote, Our conversation reminded me of something that Confucius said two thousand years ago. In any company of three persons, there must be one who can be my teacher. . . I found in Steven Foster a teacher who could share a profound knowledge of economic botany, particularly in the cultivation and uses of herbs. In 1974, at age 17, Steven Foster, began his career at the Sabbathday Lake, Maine, Shaker Community Herb Department -Americas oldest herb business, dating to 1799. There he established three acres of production gardens and managed 1700 acres for the commercial harvest of botanicals. For forty-six years, Steven has photographed and researched herbs from the Amazon rainforest to the highlands of Vietnam. Foster has over 900 photo-illustrated articles published in a wide range of media. Steven also served as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the American Botanical ...
Writing this blog over the past year my focus has shifted more and more towards highlighting the plants in their natural environments. Ive come to understand that our lives depend entirely on plants, without them we would not be here … food, shelter, oxygen, healing. Yet there is a disconnection from the natural environment for those of us who live in cities following a hectic lifestyle. We forget that a day out in nature can so easily bring us back to ourselves and connect us to our bodies and souls feeling the spark why we are here, a joie de vivre.. Today my focus is on Banksias and the four flower essences in the Australian Bush Flower Essences and Living Essences of Australia ranges.. Banksias are iconic to the Australian landscape. They were named after English botanist Sir Joseph Banks who first described them when landing on the Endeavour at Botany Bay as part of Captain Cooks exploration in 1770. Since their first description by the European explorer 173 species of shrubs and small ...

1. In 1789 Sir James Edward Smith (1759-1828) published his Reflections on the Study of Nature, based on Linnæuss works. He assured his readers that one fact, which all may learn from [the Reflections, is, that the study of Nature does not necessarily tend to make a man irreligious, as some weak people have been made to believe. The American botanist Almira Lincoln (1793-1884), was less equivocal. In 1829 she published the first of ten highly successful editions of her Familiar Lectures on Botany that she delivered to pupils in numerous female seminaries. She avoided the unmentionable words by the use of euphemisms, such as germ for ovary, and discreet circumlocutions-many of which are still in use -to demonstrate that the vegetable world offers a boundless field of inquiry, which may be explored with the most pure and delightful emotions. Here the Almighty seems to manifest himself to us . . . and it would seem, that accommodating the vegetable world to our capacities of observation, ...

Damasio formulated the somatic marker hypothesis,[5] a theory about how emotions and their biological underpinnings are involved in decision-making (both positively and negatively, and often non-consciously). Emotions provide the scaffolding for the construction of social cognition and are required for the self processes which undergird consciousness.[citation needed] "Damasio provides a contemporary scientific validation of the linkage between feelings and the body by highlighting the connection between mind and nerve cells ... this personalized embodiment of mind."[6] The somatic marker hypothesis has inspired many neuroscience experiments carried out in laboratories in the U.S. and Europe, and has had a major impact in contemporary science and philosophy.[7] Damasio has been named by the Institute for Scientific Information as one of the most highly cited researchers in the past decade.

RCA graduate David Benqué proposes a future where genetic engineering and synthetic biology are used to not only to address vital issues like the environment, health and the food supply, but also to extend the age-old inclination f humans to shape our environment to suit our aesthetic desires. Working specifically with the bio-engineering of plants and referencing flower gardens, drug cultivation, and agricultural grafting, Benqué imagines an acoustical garden created with science and changing its aural character throughout the seasons. The project is fiction based in fact, with a team of scientific advisors helping Benqué conjure up examples based on real technological and scientific observations. The advisors included Christina Agapakis, a PhD candidate in the biological and biomedical sciences at Harvard; Kirsten Jensen, a research associate in the Division of Molecular Biosciences at the Imperial College of London; and James Chapell, a PhD Candidate in the Division of Molecular ...
