The results suggest that the establishment of symbiosis with ectomycorrhizal fungi in the lineage leading to mixotrophic Cymbidium served as pre-adaptation to the evolution of the mycoheterotrophic species.
Redescription ofpolydactylus macrochir (günther, 1867), a senior synonym ofP. sheridani (macleay, 1884) (perciformes: Polynemidae)
Polydactylus macrochir (Günther, 1867), for many years identified asP. sheridani (Macleay, 1884), is redescribed as valid and a senior synonym of the latter species, following examination of the…
Silica deposition in relation to ageing of leaf tissues in Sasa veitchii (Carriere) Rehder (Poaceae: Bambusoideae).
The results of the present study clearly indicate that both hypotheses on silica deposition are compatible with each other dependent on cell types.
Distribution of Silicified Cells in the Leaf Blades of Pleioblastus chino(Franchet et Savatier) Makino (Bambusoideae)
In the epidermis, silica density and frequency of silicified cells differed depending on cell type, although silica deposition was observed in most cell types, and silica may be deposited as leaf tissues age.

The lionfish is an iconic marine fish, recently renowned for a disastrous introduction into the West Atlantic, and the hybrid origin of the Atlantic invasion invokes the possibility of heterosis as a contributing factor to invasion success.
Relationships between photosynthetic activity and silica accumulation with ages of leaf in Sasa veitchii (Poaceae, Bambusoideae).
It is hypothesized that if silica accumulation affects photosynthesis, then P(max) would decrease faster than N(area), leading to a decrease in photosynthetic rate per unit leaf nitrogen (photosynthetic nitrogen use efficiency, PNUE) with increasing silica content in leaves.
Revision of the Indo-West Pacific polynemid fish genus Eleutheronema (Teleostei: Perciformes)
Eleutheronema tridactylum is easily distinguished from both E. rhadinum and E. tetradactylum by having a dense black pectoral fin, and intraspecific variations and morphological changes with growth of the three species are discussed.
Review of Indo-Pacific specimens of the subfamily Scorpaeninae (Scorpaenidae), deposited in the Museum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris, with description of a new species of Neomerinthe
L'examen de 739 specimens de la sous-famille Scorpaeninae provenant de l'Indo-Pacifique et deposes dans les collections du Museum national d'Histoire naturelle de Paris, a permis de reconnaitre 13…
