Hevea brasiliensis is an important industrial crop for natural rubber production. Latex biosynthesis occurs in the cytoplasm of highly specialized latex cells and requires sucrose as the unique precursor. Ethylene stimulation of latex production results in high sugar flow from the surrounding cells of inner bark towards the latex cells. The aim of this work was to understand the role of seven sucrose transporters (HbSUTs) and one hexose transporter (HbHXT1) in this process. Two Hevea clones were used: PB217 and PB260, respectively described as high and low yielding clones. The expression pattern of these sugar transporters (HbSUTs and HbHXT1) was monitored under different physiological conditions and found to be maximal in latex cells. HbSUT1, one of the most abundant isoforms, displayed the greatest response to ethylene treatment. In clone PB217, ethylene treatment led to a higher accumulation of HbSUT1B in latex cells than in the inner bark tissues. Conversely, stronger expression of HbSUT1B ...
For decades, The World Rainforest Movement has been denouncing the many ways in which industrial tree plantations directly cause continued destruction of vegetation, biodiversity and forests. Industrial tree plantations also lead to the loss of food sovereignty, livelihoods, cultures, and even the existence of many forest-dependent communities. We denounce the devastating poisoning that-without exception-these plantations produce in the soil, air, water and health of affected communities; due to their indiscriminate use of agrotoxics. In this context, the US agribusiness and chemical company Monsanto, together with its industry counterparts, is a key target in the fight against tree plantations. Its famous glyphosate-based Roundup, the most widely used herbicide in the world, is causing health and environmental catastrophes worldwide. This highly toxic herbicide is used in tree plantations to kill any other plant that might compete with or affect the tree grown. There are also high risks ...

The tree plantation drive is distinct given its focus on not just planting, but also sustaining the plants. At the same time, the event seeks to foster a culture of ...
ABSTRACT. The mites of three rubber tree cultures (Cedral, Pindorama and Taquaritinga) in order to determine the abundance of populations, the richness, the diversity and the degree of similarity among the communities was studied. Twenty one species were found, five of which were common to the three cultures. The richness and the abundance were greatest at the beginning of the dry season. The composition of communities differed probably as consequence of the kind of neighboring vegetation to each area, and because of the acaricid pulverization on the culture of Taquaritinga, reductng the richness of mite species in that area. The influence of neighboring vegetation can be shown by the occurrence of Iphiseiodes zuluagui Denmark & Muma, 1972, a common species to citrus trees, on neighboring rubber trees in Taquaritinga, and Tenuipalpus heveae Baker, 1945, a common species on rubber trees, on a coffee culture neighbor to the rubber trees of Pindorama. This data suggests that mites move among ...
Ethylene is a major stimulating factor for natural rubber production in Hevea brasiliensis and is often applied in the form of Ethephon, an ethylene releaser. In a positive feedback type mechanism, the application of ethylene leads to the enhanced expression of genes involved in ethylene biosynthesis such as ACC oxidases, which are also responsive to wounding. We studied the regulation of ethylene biosynthesis in rubber trees through the characterisation of the ACC oxidase multigene family and the responses of individual genes to ethylene and wounding. Three full-length cDNAs, HbACO1, HbACO2 and HbACO3, were isolated. The HbACOs were 1115, 1174 and 1074 bp long, respectively, with open reading frames encoding polypeptides of 312, 318 and 318 amino acids, respectively. The genomic sequences of HbACO1 and HbACO2 were also characterised, revealing divergent gene structures: HbACO1 (1456 bp) possesses three introns and four exons, while HbACO2 (1418 bp) consists of two introns and three exons. All ...

Soil respiration (SR) plays an important role in the global carbon cycle. The widespread and continued conversion of tropical forests to plantations is expected to drastically alter CO2 production in soil, with significant consequences for atmospheric concentrations of this crucial greenhouse gas. In Southeast Asia, rubber plantations are among the most widespread monoculture tree plantations. However, knowledge of how SR differs in rubber plantations compared to natural forests is scarce. In this study, surface CO2 fluxes and soil CO2 concentrations (at 5 cm, 10 cm, 30 cm and 70 cm depths) were measured at regular intervals over a one-year period along slopes at three sites in paired natural tropical forests and mature rubber plantations. Annual surface soil CO2 fluxes were 15% lower in the rubber plantations than in natural forest. This difference was due to substantially lower SR during the dry season in rubber plantations compared to natural forest. During the wet season, SR did not differ ...
Classified as a hardwood tree, the rubberwood (Hevea brasiliensis) belongs to the latex-producing tree family Euphorbiaceae.

Montardy, M.C.; Lambert, C., 1977: Different absorptive properties of citrate malate and succinate by the lutoids of latex of hevea brasiliensis
Hevea brasiliensis (rubber tree) is an important commercial tree in China, with more than 386,000 ha planted on Hainan island. In 2008, twelve trees with cankers and signs of decay were found in a 40 ha rubber tree plantation in Hainan. Sap flow occurred from cankered areas. Inside the trunk the decayed wood area was yellow-brown and clearly edged by a darker border. Semi-spherical or cushion shaped structures, velvety and yellow-brownish, with a reddish brown zonate inner part were present. These masses, soft when young, later on became dry and released a large quantity of dark brown, thick-walled and irregularly-shaped chlamydospores (10 26 x 8 14 m). Pileate to ungulate fruiting bodies occasionally occurred on the trunks (up to 6 cm long, 5 cm wide and 5 cm thick at base). They contained 3 4 pores per mm with a monomitic hyphal structure and distinct hyphoid setae; ellipsoid, yellowish and thick-walled basidiospores, 7 8 x 5 6 m; and abundant, dark brown chlamydospores as already described. ...

Should we object if forestry companies do genetic engineering on their own land? Sierra Club opposes GEd tree plantations on private land for all the same reasons we oppose other tree plantations. To put it briefly, tree plantations are not forests. This will be even more so of GEd tree plantations. For instance, GEd pines might be grown without all those "useless" pine cones. They may be herbicide resistant so that competing undergrowth can be eliminated. They may be pesticide resistant so that many of the insects which live in association with trees are poisoned. The result, then, may be a silent forest, one which doesnt support chipmunks or snakes at ground level, holding no birdsong in its branches, and with no raptors soaring above. Clearly, such a stand of trees is not really a forest. And worse, the damage cant be confined to private property as trees live for many years and cant be closely observed; "birth control" among trees is less reliable than among people and even genetic ...
Corynespora cassiicola is a species of fungus well known as a plant pathogen. It is a sac fungus in the family Corynesporascaceae. It is the type species of the genus Corynespora. This fungus infects over 530 species of plants in 53 families. It is most common in the tropics and subtropics. It has also been isolated from nematodes and from human skin. The fungus is known as a pathogen of many agricultural crop plants, especially cowpea, cucumber, papaya, rubber, soybean, and tomato. It has caused crop failures resulting in high economic losses in over 70 countries, including losses of over US$3000 per acre in tomato crops in Florida in the United States. On several plants, such as tomatoes, the fungus causes a disease called target spot or target leaf spot. The disease is identified by leaf damage taking the form of target-shaped spots with light centres and dark margins, as well as pits on the fruit. The fungus also causes a disease on the cultivated rubber tree Hevea brasiliensis called ...

Functional categorization was performed by mapping against Gene Ontology (GO). We also identified 43,865 loci microsatellites from the data set. [less] ...
Forward genetics approaches are not popularly applied in non-model plants due to their complex genomes, long life cycles, backward genetic studies etc. Researchers have to adopt reverse genetic methods to characterize gene functions in non-model plants individually, the efficiency of which is usually low. In this study, we report a gain-of-function in Arabidopsis (GAINA) strategy which can be used for batch identification of functional genes in a plant species. This strategy aims to obtain the gain-of-function of rubber tree genes through overexpressing transformation ready full-length cDNA libraries in Arabidopsis. An initial transformation test produced about two thousand independent transgenic Arabidopsis lines, in which multiple obvious aberrant phenotypes were observed, suggesting the gain-of-function of rubber tree genes. The transferred genes were further isolated and identified. One gene identified to be metallothionein-like protein type 3 gene was further transferred into Arabidopsis and
Soil respiration is a key component of the global carbon cycle, and even small changes in soil respiration rates could result in significant changes in atmospheric CO2 levels. The conversion of tropical forests to rubber plantations in SE Asia is increasingly common, and there is a need to understand the impacts of this land-use change on soil respiration in order to revise CO2 budget calculations. This study focused on the spatial variability of soil respiration along a slope in a natural tropical rainforest and a terraced rubber plantation in Xishuangbanna, SW China. In each land-use type, we inserted 105 collars for soil respiration measurements. Research was conducted over one year in Xishuangbanna during May, June, July and October 2015 (wet season) and January and March 2016 (dry season). The mean annual soil respiration rate was 30% higher in natural forest than in rubber plantation and mean fluxes in the wet and dry season were 15.1 and 9.5 Mg C ha-1 yr-1 in natural forest and 11.7 and ...

Genotypic variability in utilization of rock phosphates including the local source Eppawale was evaluated using Hevea clones during the early immature phase. All the clones responded to P fertilization, and the responces were related to the source of fertilizers and other soil characteristics. Plants of clone RR1C 121 utilized Eppawala rock phosphate efficiently, both in Matale and Boralu soil. But, plants of clone RR1C 110 were able to use both rock phosphate sources only in Matale soils. However, responce to rock phosphate from plants of 100 was comparatively low in relation to P uptake and dry matter production. The necessity of testing these clones for the locally available phosphate source in the field scale is also ...
Rubber tree plants, or Ficus elasticas, are a common houseplant. In nature the tree can soar up to 50 feet tall. It has dark green and oblong leaves that look glossy.

Caused by the fungus Sclerotium rolfsii, southern blight is an easily preventable moisture-related infection found in rubber trees during the summer months. Early symptoms include reddish or yellow spotting on the lower leaves, particularly on plants that are regularly misted or overwatered. As the infection progresses, masses of cottony fungi with hard brown lumps appear around the base of the stems and eventually spread up the stems and onto the leaves. Because southern blight is a devastating infection that is difficult to treat, prevention is the best option. Only sterilized potting medium should be used when repotting rubber trees, and water should be given sparingly during the growing season, taking care to keep the leaves dry.. ...
Although it had been used on a small scale before, its use for furniture making has become much more common in recent decades with the development of chemical treatments to protect the wood against fungal and insect attacks. There are extensive rubber plantations with mature trees, especially in southeast Asia; the earlier practice was to burn the tree at the end of its latex-producing cycle. Currently, rubber plantation trees are generally harvested for wood after they complete the latex producing cycle, when they are 25 to 30 years old. When the latex yields become extremely low, the trees are then felled, and new trees are usually planted. This makes rubberwood eco-friendly in that the wood is harvested from a renewable source. The wood from the trees is light in color and straight grained making it easy to stain and match in woodworking. Part of the industry adoption of rubberwood was an international campaign to avoid use of a previously used light straight grained wood which was ...

First we have to think agriculture is profitable sector. For that we have to adopt new methods, changing scenarios and also change our mindset. How to change? The main problem in agriculture is lack of labors. And also cost of cultivation vs. net gain is in negative. So we have to plan our strategy to overcome this like any other corporate sectors. First divide our land area according to all risks including labors, maintenance and financial situations. Then we will go according to that. If you cant manage and maintain the regular agriculture means you will choose the tree plantation fully. You can manage 1/4th of the land means you can follow remaining areas to regular agriculture. Tree plantation is not only good for environment and also good revenue business with less maintenance and cost of cultivation. It is like a fixed deposit for our children and it is like gold saving or good stocks portfolio. We are giving good Eco-friendly, pollution free environment and also good savings to our ...

Abstract. Physicochemical and instrumental characterization of rubber (Hevea brasiliensis (kunth. Muell.)) seed oil (RSO) were carried out for the purpose of quality assessment, identification, and authentication. Properties such as free fatty acid (FFA %), acid value, color, saponification value, iodine value, and unsaponifiable matter were determined. Fatty acid (FA) composition and TAG profiles were determined using gas chromatography (GC) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), respectively. Structural features of RSO were also determined using FTIR, 1H NMR and 13C NMR spectroscopy. The natural form of RSO is highly acidic (acid value=17.43±0.06 mg KOH/g). The saturated FAs are palmitic (9.10±0.06) and stearic (12.63±0.01), and the main unsaturated FAs are oleic (25.31±0.13), linoleic (36.31±0.09), and linolenic (15.78±0.18). The oil can be classified as semidrying. Polyunsaturated TAGs of LnLnL and LnOO were the major TAGs found in RSO. FTIR, 1H NMR and 13C NMR analysis ...

This is a long interview, with a lot of detail about day-to-day village life and how it has changed over time. She perceives a conflict of interest between the needs of the agricultural community and recent environmental and educational developments. She feels that a recent government tree plantation scheme is inappropriate. They do plant trees but their leaves cant be fed to cattle. Yet the trees that they plant do need proper care and looking after. They plant trees and go, never to come back. She says the needs of the parents in the community are also at odds with a new education facility. We also send our children out for grazing cattle. We tell them to miss school and she has little faith in the education of girls. She explains: If they have to slog, cut grass, till the earth, then what use is education? Moreover, they earn a bad name - then why educate them ...
The exceptional artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser has not only become famous for his transdisciplinary work, which ranges from architecture to painting and film, but is also considered today to be one of the great pioneers of the ecological movement.. For Hundertwasser, nature was the only superior creative force on which man is dependent. He wrote numerous manifestos for nature conservation and designed posters against nuclear energy, for saving the oceans and whales and for the protection of the rainforest, to name but a few examples. He initiated and participated in environmental campaigns for more greenery in the cities and carried out tree plantations worldwide. His participation in the actions to save the Hainburg floodplain is particularly memorable. Hundertwasser called for a more natural and humane architecture and anticipated many developments of todays "Green Architecture" with the tree tenants, the forestation of the roofs and the spontaneous vegetation in his realized ...
