Progression from the juvenile to mature phase in woody plants is accompanied by changes in characteristics as diverse as adventitious rooting capacity, leaf morphology, canopy architecture, wood anatomy and reproductive development. Many concepts of phase change, the intensity and duration of changes that occur during the phase transition, and the practical(More)
Several techniques have been developed for reinvigorating, rejuvenating or maintaining the juvenility of plants. None of these techniques is as effective as natural rejuvenation whereby the most mature plant parts, the reproductive organs, produce the most juvenile plant parts, the embryos, through gametogenesis and sexual reproduction. The most common(More)
An efficient production system, which can quickly produce high quality plants, is shown in this study of Liquidambar styraciflua. The mini-cuttings technique was used for ex vitro clonal propagation of three sweetgum clones. The semi-hydroponics system for production of propagules was also tested, and the concentration of indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) for(More)
Self-organized nanostructures that provide antireflection properties grow on PMMA caused by plasma ion etching. A new procedure uses a thin initial layer prior to the etching step. Different types of antireflective structures can now be produced in a shorter time and with fewer limitations on the type of polymer that can be used. The durability of the(More)
Low amenability of the eucalypt, Corymbia torelliana × C. citriodora, to vegetative propagation has limited its establishment in plantations. This study determined whether rooting capacity and cutting vigour varied along the central shoot of Corymbia seedlings, and whether these differences are related to stem development and hormone concentrations.(More)
Repeated pruning of stock plants is a common approach to delaying maturation and maintaining the propagation ability of cuttings, but little is known about the hormonal or anatomical basis for this phenomenon. We tested the effect of two different stock-plant pruning heights (15 cm and 30 cm) on shoot production, rooting capacity and rooted cutting vigour(More)
The definition of best substrates is often difficult due to variability of results observed in different measured variables. Therefore, we defined the best substrates for Piptadenia gonoacantha seedlings production through ranking, taking into account the relative importance of each variable in seedlings quality. In this regard, 13 substrates were(More)
Psychotria nuda (Cham. & Schltdl.) Wawra (Rubiaceae) is a native species from the Dense Ombrophylous Forest (dense tropical rain forest), typical in the low altitude areas of the forest, with occurrence in the states of Minas Gerais, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Paraná and Santa Catarina. Due to the presence of yellow flowers with red receptacle and anise(More)
