Association of cone thermogenesis and volatiles with pollinator specificity in Macrozamia cycads
Cone traits (volatile components and thermogenesis) of three cycad species in the genus Macrozamia were examined for differences related to their specific insect pollinators, the weevil, Tranes spp.,Expand
Acaricidal and Cytotoxic Activities of Extracts from Selected Genera of Australian Lamiaceae
Abstract Crude foliar extracts of 67 species from six subfamilies of Australian Lamiaceae were screened by whole organism contact toxicity on the polyphagous mite Tetranychus urticae Koch (Acari:Expand
Pollination of Australian Macrozamia cycads (Zamiaceae): effectiveness and behavior of specialist vectors in a dependent mutualism.
Complementary field and laboratory tests confirmed and quantified the pollination abilities of Tranes sp. weevils and Cycadothrips chadwicki thrips, specialist insects of their respective cycadExpand
Low isozymic differentiation among five species of the Macrozamia heteromera group (Zamiaceae)
Abstract Starch gel electrophoresis was employed to estimate the levels of genetic variation among five entities of the Macrozamia heteromera (Zamiaceae) group which can be recognised onExpand
Myrtucommulones F-I, phloroglucinols with thyrotropin-releasing hormone receptor-2 binding affinity from the seeds of Corymbia scabrida.
High-throughput screening of a plant and marine invertebrate extract library to find natural products with rat thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) receptor-2 binding affinity led to the isolation ofExpand
Major Clades of Australasian Rutoideae (Rutaceae) Based on rbcL and atpB Sequences
Background Rutaceae subfamily Rutoideae (46 genera, c. 660 species) is diverse in both rainforests and sclerophyll vegetation of Australasia. Australia and New Caledonia are centres of endemism withExpand
The extent and structure of genetic variation in the Macrozamia pauli-guilielmi complex (Zamiaceae)
Abstract Allozyme variation in 12 enzyme systems coded by 17 loci was investigated in six populations of Macrozamia, including two populations of M. parcifolia, three populations of M.Expand
Recircumscription of the Stapelieae (Asclepiadaceae)
The infrafamilial classification of the Asclepiadaceae has been investigated from the nomenclatural side by Sundell (1980) who indicated that this classification has been based almost entirely on theExpand
Leaf Oils of the Australian Species of Polyalthia (Annonaceae)
Abstract The leaf oils of the four Australian species of Polyalthia were examined. P. australis gave an oil in which the major components were p-caryophyllene (4–15%), germacrene D (1–13%),Expand
Diversity in Australian populations of Murraya paniculata (Rutaceae): New evidence from volatile leaf oils
Two entities are distinguished in Australian populations currently referred to as Murraya paniculata (L.) Jack. Both entities are allotypic in northern Australia. M. paniculata 'Small Leaves' occursExpand
