• Arabis
  • Puccinia monoica is a parasitic rust fungus of the genus Puccinia that inhibits flowering in its host plant (usually an Arabis species) and radically transforms host morphology in order to facilitate its own sexual reproduction. (wikipedia.org)
  • Infection of host plants (including Arabis and several other members of the mustard family) occurs via wind-borne basidiospores in late summer. (wikipedia.org)
  • The tower-mustard plant (Arabis glabra) has creamy white flowers that bloom from May to June. (wikipedia.org)
  • Recipe
  • This is a pretty piece of botanical clip art and would look lovely on the front of handmade greeting card or even on a recipe card where the recipe calls for mustard. (blogspot.com)
  • family
  • These are annual plants belonging to the family of Brassicaceae (cabbage). (ketogenic-diet-menu.com)
  • The plants that A. agilissima collects from belong to the family the Brassicaceae, which is usually wild radish and wild mustard. (wikipedia.org)
  • A. agilissima needs a vertical surface to nest on and it typically feeds on flowers of plants in the mustard family for food. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pieris oleracea, or more commonly known as the mustard white, is a butterfly in the Pieridae family native to a large part of Canada and the northeastern United States. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sisymbrium officinale, known as hedge mustard, (formerly Erysimum officinale) is a plant in the family Brassicaceae. (wikipedia.org)
  • leaf
  • The pseudoflowers are borne from basal leaf rosettes of the host mustard and mimic the yellow, early spring corollae of distantly related wildflowers (e.g. buttercups), not only in visible light but also in ultraviolet. (wikipedia.org)
  • enzyme
  • Pungency of mustard develops when cold water is added to the ground-up seed - an enzyme (myrosin) acts on a glycoside (sinigrin) to produce a sulphur compound. (pfaf.org)
  • commonly
  • citation needed] The original nitrogen mustard drug, mustine (HN2), is no longer commonly in use because of excessive toxicity. (wikipedia.org)
  • nutrients
  • It takes over the growing areas of trilliums, bloodroot, and other slow growing woodland and hedgerow plants, taking up sunlight, nutrients, water. (gardenfork.tv)
  • small
  • With their chewing mouthparts, beetles make small round pits in the cotyledons and leaves of young plants. (wikipedia.org)
  • As the plants grow, the remaining thin layers of tissue eventually dry up and fall away, leaving small "shot holes" in the foliage. (wikipedia.org)
  • At MU, Rédei researched the genetics and biology of Arabidopsis thaliana, a small mustard plant. (wikipedia.org)
  • pollen
  • A. agilissima is an oligolectic bee, meaning that they collect pollen from only a few flowering plants. (wikipedia.org)
  • In Southern Germany, it collects its pollen from the wild mustard plant (Sinapsis arvensis). (wikipedia.org)
  • Insects visiting the pseudoflowers transfer spermatia from one host plant to another, in the same way that pollinators transfer pollen between the true flowers of uninfected plants. (wikipedia.org)
  • Origin
  • Domestication of Plants in the Old World: The Origin and Spread of Domesticated Plants in Southwest Asia, Europe, and the Mediterranean Basin (Fourth ed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Plant chloroplasts are semiautonomous cell organelles of endosymbiotic origin that emerged from a cyanobacteria-like ancestor ( Lopez-Juez and Pyke, 2005 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • forage
  • Therefore, the only way A. agilissima can forage on this plant is when it close to an area that it can use as a nesting site. (wikipedia.org)
  • flowers
  • The plants reach their full height of 1.5 to 2 metres (5 to 6 1 / 2 feet) as their flowers fade and after numerous green seedpods appear on their branches. (britannica.com)
  • The flowers are hermaphrodite (have both male and female organs) and are pollinated by Bees.The plant is self-fertile. (pfaf.org)
  • To accomplish this, the fungus sterilizes the host plant, preventing it from producing true flowers. (wikipedia.org)
  • The bees feed on a sweet, sticky substance similar to nectar that the fungus forces the plant to produce on the imitation flowers. (wikipedia.org)
  • wild
  • Wild forms of mustard and its relatives, the radish and turnip, can be found over west Asia and Europe, suggesting their domestication took place somewhere in that area. (wikipedia.org)
  • It has been shown that this species has a slight preference for the wild radish plant. (wikipedia.org)
  • In south-west Germany, it has been attempted to change the way fields are ploughed and planted so that the bees can feed on these wild mustard plants. (wikipedia.org)
  • Arabidopsis
  • As part of the DOE JGI's Community Science Program and Emerging Technologies Opportunity Program, the researchers who worked on the project sequenced and analyzed the genome of Boechera stricta, a relative of the model plant Arabidopsis. (hudsonalpha.org)
