Effect of temperatures and germination media on seed germination of Jatropha curcas Linn.
The effect of different temperatures and different germination media in J. curcas seeds was studied in the present work. The influence of 8 constant temperatures viz. 20°C, 22°C, 25°C, 27°C, 30°C,
Propagation Through Rooting of Stem Cuttings of Ginkgo biloba Linn.-A Living Fossil Under Threat
A systematic study were carried out to examine the rooting ability of male and female branch cuttings of G. biloba under different microclimatic conditions i.e. polyhouse, polypit, and open while
Seedling emergence and survival in Cinnamomum tamala under varying micro-habitat conditions: conservation implications.
Higher canopy cover in undisturbed forest emerged as the best micro-habitat for regeneration of C. tamala provided the seeds are liberated from the fruit pulp, and seems to conform with seed dispersal by frugivorous birds in nature.
Antimicrobial Resistance and the Alternative Resources with Special Emphasis on Plant-Based Antimicrobials—A Review
The present review focuses on antibiotic resistance, the resistance mechanism in bacteria against antibiotics and the role of plant-active secondary metabolites against microorganisms, which might be useful as an alternative and effective strategy to break the resistance among microbes.
Morpho-biochemical variability and selection strategies for the germplasm of Fritillaria roylei Hook (Liliaceae) - an endangered medicinal herb of western Himalaya, India
Natural populations of Garhwal Himalaya were analyzed for variability on the basis of morphological, biochemical and isoenzyme patterns and the studied populations were grouped into three clusters based on D2 values.
Influence of explants type and plant growth regulators on In vitro multiple shoots regeneration of a Laurel from Himalaya
Micropropagation in a Laurel, Bay leaf tree was studied with an aim to select best explant and effect of plant growth regulators (PGRs) for multiple shooting to show significant results in callogenesis, multiple shooting and rooting regeneration in all four types of explants.
Quercus semecarpifolia Sm. is a temperate, timberline, multipurpose oak species. It plays an important role in the Himalayan ecosystem. Human pressure, predation, short-lived acorns, failure of good
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and plant-derived antimicrobials (PDAms) as an alternative drug line to control infections
The advancement made in the researches on antimicrobial resistance along with the discovery and the development of more active PDAms is reviewed.
Effect of orientation of seed placement in soil on seedling emergence in two bauhinia species Bauhinia vahlii Wight et. Arn. and Bauhinia racemosa Lam.
Seedling emergence of two Bauhinia species viz. Bauhinia vahlii Wight et. Am. and Bauhinia racemosa Lam. was influenced by seed orientation in the nursery level. Earliest and highest seedling
