Regeneration of Treeline Birch (Betula utilis D. Don) Forest in a Trans-Himalayan Dry Valley in Central Nepal
It was apparent that Betula seedlings could not establish under their own closed canopy even if they produced viable seeds, and partial canopy opening may induce seedling establishment and hence continuous regeneration of Betula utilis at mature stands. Expand
A comparative evaluation of the antioxidant activity of some medicinal plants popularly used in Nepal
Recently, attention has focused on phytochemicals as new sources of natural antioxidants.Therefore, the methanolic crude extracts of 24 commonly used medicinal plants fromJhapa and Illam District,Expand
Leaf anatomy and its implications for phylogenetic relationships in Taxaceae s. l.
Differences in leaf and stomata morphology neither strongly support the two tribes in Taxaceae nor fairly recognize the monogeneric family, Cephalotaxaceae, so Taxaceae should be redefined with broad circumscriptions including Cep Halotaxus. Expand
Cladistic analysis of Taxaceae s. l.
Taxaceae s. l. is a wider concept of classification treating five genera of Taxaceae s. str. and Cephalotaxus together. Cephalotaxus is morphologically very similar to the five genera of Taxaceae s.Expand
Wild edible flowering plants of the Illam Hills (Eastern Nepal) and their mode of use by the local community
The Illam district, situated in the extreme North Eastern part (Latitude 26.58N and 87.58E Longitude) of Nepal, is a hot spot for floral diversity. The study of wild edible plants of this region wasExpand
Vegetation Analysis along an Altitudinal Gradient of Juniperus indica forest in Southern Manang Valley, Nepal
A quantitative vegetative analysis of Juniperus indica forest was done along an altitudinal gradient on southern aspect of U-shaped Manang valley (3300-4000 m asl), during May-October 2004. The studyExpand
Seed morphology of the subfamily Helleboroideae (Ranunculaceae) and its systematic implication
Maximum parsimony analysis of morphological features establishes three groupings within the studied genera: Aconitum/Delphinium, Actaea/Cimicifuga, and Caltha/Eranthis/Trollius/Megaleranthis, congruent with the earlier groupings of the Helleboroideae based on morphology and also agrees in part with recent molecular studies. Expand
Seed morphology of 12 taxa of the genus Thalictrum L. (Thalictroideae, Ranunculaceae) and its systematic implication
The results of this study indicated that seed morphological features do not, in general, provide strong support to the sectional division of the genus, but that species within sections shared some comparable seed features. Expand
