New species of Mentzelia (Loasaceae) from Grand County, Utah
- B. Prigge
—A new species, Mentzelia (Section Bartonia) shitltziortirn, of the Loasaceae (Mentzelioideae) is described. A close relationship with M. multicaulis (Osterh.) Darl. and M. argillosa Darl. is…

A snapshot of the microbial communities in the Negev Desert, giving an insight in its natural state, identified a number of PGPB, both epiphytes and endophytes, which fix nitrogen, chelate iron, solubilize phosphate, and secrete cellulase, thereby providing a profile of the microbiomes that support the growth of two desert perennials.
Rarity in Astragalus: a California Perspective
An inventory of patterns of climatic, topographic, and edaphic diversity of Astragalus taxa in California provides a means to understand the occurrence of rarity in relation to climatic equitability and regional species richness of congeneric taxa.
The Effects of Long-Term Drought on Host Plant Canopy Condition and Survival of the Endangered Astragalus jaegerianus (Fabaceae)
The results support the study hypothesis that drought-related changes to host plant canopies affect A.Jaegerianus survival, and represent an indirect negative effect of long-term drought on A. jaegersianus populations.
Spatial and temporal variations in the timing of leaf replacement in a Quercus cornelius-mulleri population
The phenology of spring leaf replacement was studied in a population of 46 evergreen scrub oaks at the edge of the Mojave Desert in each of five years over the period 1990–2001, detecting weak influences due to shrub size, position within the site, and a genetic component.
Identification of green tea (Camellia sinensis L.) and tea oil (Camellia oleifera Abel.) by molecular, biological, and anatomical methods
This report analyzed DNA isolated from living tea plants as well as from a close relative, the tea oil plant, using both molecular and anatomical methods to verify the identity of plant material in dietary supplements and botanicals.
A new species of Mentzelia section Bartonia (Loasaceae) from western Nevada [M. candelariae]
New species and a new combination of Mentzelia section Bartonia (Loasaceae) from the Colorado Plateau
This paper factors two species from the diversity in Mentzelia (sect. Bartonia) in the Colorado Plateau, and, although recognition of these two species makes understanding the remaining diversity somewhat easier, there still exist some local endemics that need recognition, and it feels certain that additional endemic remain to be discovered.
