Morphology of pollen and orbicules in the tribe Spiraeeae (Rosaceae) and its systematic implications
Orbicule distribution patterns indicate that the absence of orbicules is a synapomorphic condition of the more derived clade, comprising Pentactina + Petrophytum + Kelseya + Spiraea. Expand
Comparative anatomy of petiole in Forsythieae, Fontanesieae and Myxopyrum (Oleaceae) and its systematic implication
Some petiole anatomical characteristics can be useful for diagnostic features as well as partly for supporting the recently proposed molecular phylogeny. Expand
Neuroprotective Effect of Protaetia brevitarsis seulensis’ Water Extract on Trimethyltin-Induced Seizures and Hippocampal Neurodegeneration
The findings suggest that the Protaetia brevitarsis seulensis’ water extract (PBWE) may have pharmacotherapeutic potential in neurodegenerative diseases such as seizures or epilepsy. Expand
The taxonomic implication of leaf anatomy in tribe Sorbarieae (Spiraeoideae: Rosaceae)
Some of leaf anatomical characters can be useful for diagnostic features (e.g., cuticle, epidermal cell, trichome, mesophyll, main vasculature type) and would constitute a major characters for genus Sorbaria in Sorbarieae. Expand
Cuscuta Species Identification Based on the Morphology of Reproductive Organs and Complete Chloroplast Genome Sequences
Differences in morphological characteristics of reproductive organs and molecular characterisation of chloroplast genomes were useful for distinguishing between C. japonica and C. chinensis, and paraphyletic groups within subgenera Monogynella and Grammica were revealed. Expand
Sequencing and Comparative Analysis of the Chloroplast Genome of Angelica polymorpha and the Development of a Novel Indel Marker for Species Identification
The complete chloroplast genome sequence of A. polymorpha was determined and compared with that of Ligusticum officinale to provide important taxonomic and phylogenetic information on herbal medicines and facilitate their authentication using the indel marker. Expand
Fruit and seed micromorphology and its systematic significance in tribe Sorbarieae (Rosaceae)
The authors' fruit and seed micromorphological results provide strong evidence that genus Lyonothamnus could be positioned in the tribe Lyonothamneae, not Sorbarieae, and supported the preliminary phylogenetic hypothesis that Sorbaria could be divided into two groups. Expand
Morphological Identification of Lepidii Seu Descurainiae Semen and Adulterant Seeds Using Microscopic Analysis
Lepidii seu Descurainiae Semen, the dried ripe seeds of Descurainia sophia (L.) Webb ex Prantl or Lepidium apetalum Willd., is used widely as a traditional herbal medicine in Northeast Asia. However,Expand
Morphological traits in an androdioecious species, Chionanthus retusus (Oleaceae)
The morphological differences in the sexual morph of flowers in Chionanthus retusus, an androdioecious species, are presented and mapping the breeding system onto the recently studied phylogenetic tree indicates that a clade belonging to C. Retusus might be represent a shared androdIOecious system. Expand
Taxonomic Implications of Leaf Micromorphology Using Microscopic Analysis: A Tool for Identification and Authentication of Korean Piperales
It is revealed that leaf micromorphological characteristics can be used for accurate authentication in the application for authentication of herbal medicine, and these characteristics might be taxonomically relevant and useful for developing an identification key. Expand
