Single neuron models are typical functional replica of the biological neuron that are derived using their individual and group responses in networks. In recent past, a lot of work in this area has produced advanced neuron models for both analog and binary data patterns. Popular among these are the higher-order neurons, fuzzy neurons and other polynomial… (More)
A new species of Malvaceae, Abelmoschus palianus Sutar, K. V. Bhat et S. R. Yadav is described and illustrated from Chhattisgarh, India. The morphological differences between the new species and related taxa are discussed.
Recent research point to the Indian wild taxa of Cucumis callosus (Rottler) Cogn. as the wild progenitor of melon (C. melo L.). Overlapping distribution with cultivated and weedy and feral forms of melo and normal fertility of F1 and BC1 generations of its cross with cultivated melon indicate its progenitor status. A perusal of herbarium data indicate its… (More)

Cucumis silentvalleyi (Manilal, T. Sabu et P.J. Mathew) Ghebretinsae et Thulin and Cucumis indicus Ghebretinsae et Thulin are two rare narrow endemics of Western Ghats of India. Both have morphological resemblance but distinguishable by a few key characters like shape of the leaf, ovary and fruit, and chromosome number. While both are edible and non-bitter,… (More)
Wild relatives are important genetic resources for crop improvement. However, basic information about their population structure, genetic diversity, species relationships and distribution of variation in a gene pool remains scanty in Vigna species. The level of genetic diversity and population genetic structure of representative accessions of cultivated and… (More)
A new synthetic species of Momordica (2n = 56) has been developed by crossing natural tetraploid Momordica subangulata subsp. renigera (2n = 56) with induced tetraploid Momordica dioica (2n = 4x = 56). The hybrid produces adventitious root tubers through which it perpetuates and propagates like its female parent and maintains its morphological… (More)
