Tertiary spore and pollen assemblage from Neyveli lignite formation, Tamil nadu, India
A New Improved Protocol to Obtain Pure Genomic DNA from Plectranthus forskohlii (Willd.) Briq
An ethnobotanical survey of wild aromatic ethnomedicinal plants present in Boduvara Ramar Hills, Dharmapuri District, Tamil Nadu, India
Role of ABA on antioxidant mechanism under drought crops
Role of the Arbuscular Mycorrhizal-associated Rhizobacteria in the Soil borne Phytopathogens in Salem Districts
Ampedus Dejean of Buxa Tiger Reserve is monotypic, being represented by the only new species A. furunculus. Species is described and illustrated based on the basis of a single male specimen.
The Tertiary system in Southern India is divided in to the Upper Cuddalore formation and the Lower Neyveli formation. The lignite fields of Neyveli region comes under the Neyveli formation. The present report is about the observation of some spores of Pteridophytes and pollen grains of some Gymnosperms and Angiosperms from the Neyveli lignite formation.
The mint family Lamiaceae comprising medicinally important plants and economically most wanted inviting its wide cultivation. The improvement in terms of quantity and quality of these plants characters could be possible through molecular techniques which first necessitates the isolation of pure form of DNA.
n intensive field survey of wild aromatic plants present in Boduvara Ramar Hill indicates 45 species of aromatic plants. They are used by the tribal people in day to day medicinal systems. Information on names of plants, parts used and medicinal uses were gathered from local tribal people.
Traditionally used medicinal plants have been a source of relief in controlling different types of diseases throughout the globe. The present study was conducted on ethno-botanical survey to collect information about the use of traditional medicinal plants for diabetes treatment by (40 - 57 years male & female) the Malayali Tribes in Jarugu malai, Salem District, Tamil Nadu.
Abscisic acid is a plant growth regulator involved in several development processes as well as environmental responses. Abscisic acid is a plant hormone that regulates plant growth, development, seed germination. ABA has a role in number of physiological functions such as photosynthesis. ABA positively affects stomatal activity under stresses such as abiotic and biotic.
The mutualistic symbiosis of most land plants with arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi has been shown to favour mineral and water nutrition and to increase resistance to abiotic and biotic stresses. This review reports the main mechanisms involved in the control of the disease symptoms and of the intraradical proliferation of soil borne phytopathogens by root colonization with AM fungi, with a special emphasis on the role of the rhizobacteria shown to be specifically associated with the AM extra radical network and the mycorrhizosphere (the soil zone with particular characteristics under the influence of the root/AM association).
Nanoparticles due to their needs and applications of nanomaterials in the different areas like industry, agriculture, medicine results in release of nanoparticles into the aquatic environment. Hence the study their effects of these nanoparticles should be assessed which can cause damage to the aquatic environment.
