BACKGROUND Although rapid changes in copy number and gene order are common within plant mitochondrial genomes, associated patterns of gene transcription are underinvestigated. Previous studies have shown that the gynodioecious plant species Silene vulgaris exhibits high mitochondrial diversity and occasional paternal inheritance of mitochondrial markers.(More)
Global warming and lack of irrigation water put immense pressure on the production of highly economic and water stress sensitive plants such as Ocimum basilicum which is commonly known as “basil”. The study aims to determine the morphological and physiological effects of trinexapac-ethyl (TE) foliar biweekly sprays with 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3 L ha−1 and/or four(More)
BACKGROUND Calibrachoa x hybrida (Solanaceae) cultivars are widely used in North and South America as ornamental plants. Their potential as a source of antimicrobial compounds might be enhanced by seaweed extract (SWE) applications. METHODS SWE of Ascophyllum nodosum were applied at 5 and 7 ml/L as a soil drench or foliar spray on Calibrachoa cultivars of(More)
With the unusually prolonged drought that results from climate change, increasing the ability of plants to resist drought become a necessity. The objectives of this study were to investigate the effects of two plant growth regulators [(trinexapac-ethyl (TE) and abscisic acid (ABA)], three mowing heights (MH) (25, 35 and 45 mm), and four irrigation levels of(More)
Diversity of Plants, Traditional Knowledge, and Practices in Local Cosmetics: A Case Study from Alexandria, Egypt. In this study, we explored the diversity of traditional knowledge and plants that have cosmetic values in Alexandria, Egypt. Ethnobotanical data were collected from 396 local Alexandria women using semistructured interviews. Data were analyzed(More)
