The distribution of dietary polyamines, putrescine, spermidine and spermine, was determined during processing of Camellia sinensis. Black tea manufacture is carried by a series of processes on fresh tea leaves involving withering, rolling, fermentation, drying and sieving. The aim of this research was to determine the effect of tea processing on the(More)
Calluna vulgaris L. (Ericaceae) is used for the treatment of various inflammatory ailments in traditional medicines. In order to evaluate this ethnobotanical information, its anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive activities were studied using in vivo experimental models in mice. The ethanolic extract of the plant was first fractionated into five extracts;(More)
This paper explains briefly the conceptual framework of an ecosystem-based multiple-use forest management planning focusing on biodiversity conservation and participation. Some results from a case study were documented to realize the implementation of the concept. A strong liaison between the related institutions and major stakeholders and the effective use(More)
This article reports the results of selected biological activities, including anticholinesterase, antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties, of the petroleum ether, chloroform and methanol extracts as well as the alkaloid fraction of Lycopodium complanatum L. ssp. chamaecyparissus (A. Br.) Doll (LCC, Lycopodiaceae) growing in Turkey.(More)
This study aims to investigate the change in spatial-temporal configuration of secondary forest succession and generate measurements for monitoring the changes in structural plant diversity in Yalnizçam Scots pine forest in NE Turkey from 1972 to 2005. The successional stages were mapped using the combination of Geographic Information System (GIS), Global(More)
Growth, cell viability and heat shock proteins (HSPs) in Bezostaya-1, Cukurova-86 and Diyarbakir-81 cultivated wheat cultivars and three Aegilops species were investigated. Etiolated seedlings were exposed to 23 degrees C, 32 degrees C, 35 degrees C, 37 degrees C and 38 degrees C for 24 h, and 35 degrees C (24 h) --> 50 degrees C (1 h) and 37 degrees C (24(More)
The taxonomic and phylogenetic relationships within the genus Artemisia s.l. (Asteraceae) are controversial, and it has been considered 1 to 8 different genera. This work re-investigated the phylogenetic relationships in Artemisia using nuclear ribosomal (ITS) and chloroplast psbA-trnH DNA sequences using three sections of Artemisia, Dracunculus, and(More)
High temperatures during seedling growth are considered as one of the factors that can modify surviving properties in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) plant. This work attempts to evaluate the heat shock responses of seedling of winter wheat (Bezostaya-1) using growth parameters (seedling length, embryonal root length and embryonal root number), membrane(More)
The volatile constituents of the essential oils from the flower, leaf, and stem of Verbascum wiedemannianum were analysed by GC and GC-MS. A total of forty-three compounds were identified, constituting over 99.1%, 94.3%, and 98.7% of oil composition of the flower, leaf, and stem of V. wiedemannianum, respectively. Hydrocarbons were shown to be the main(More)
In order to find new acetylcholinesterase inhibitors from natural sources which have therapeutic potential in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, the chloroform : methanol (1 : 1) extracts of five Lycopodium species ( L. clavatum L., L. selago L., L. annotinum L., L. alpinum L., and L. complanatum ssp. chamaecyparissus A. (Br.) Döll.), growing in Turkey(More)
