Les travaux de Theophraste en botanique ont permis de montrer la relation entre les fleurs et les fruits, et de mettre en evidence une sexualite des plantes avec des organes mâles et femelles 
Characteristic differences in metabolite profile in male and female plants of dioecious Piper betle L.
It appears that male and female plants besides having flowers of different sexes also have characteristic differences in the metabolites representing two metabolic types. Expand
Sex-specific variations in phytochemicals and antimicrobial potentiality of Dioscorea
The female tubers are superior in acquiring phytochemicals compared to male counterparts and acquired maximum antioxidant and antimicrobial potentiality and will offer an apposite baseline for further sex-specific assessment. Expand
Impact of Seasons and Dioecy on Therapeutic Phytoconstituents of Tinospora cordifolia, a Rasayana Drug
The results of this study suggest that the female plant is best for its therapeutic phytoconstituents and the best harvesting seasons may be either winter or late summer for antioxidant potential and immunomodulator activities and monsoon for antidiabetic activity of T. cordifolia. Expand
Adam Zalužanský’s “De sexu plantarum” (1592): an early pioneering chapter on plant sexuality
For the first time, an English translation of Zalužanský’s chapter on plant sexuality is provided and, more than one hundred years before the well-known De sexu plantarum epistola of R. J. Camerarius, the sexuality of plants is suggested. Expand

The Traditional Ecological Knowledge of the Solega: A Linguistic Perspective
This book covers the ethnobiology and traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) of the Solega people of southern India. Solega TEK is shown to be a complex, inter-related network of detailedExpand
Analysis of phytochemical variations in dioecious Tinospora cordifolia stems using HPLC/QTOF MS/MS and UPLC/QqQLIT -MS/MS.
Phytochemicals in the stem of male and female Tinospora cordifolia showed significant qualitative and quantitative variations and LC-MS and MS/MS methods can be used to differentiate between male andFemale plants based on their chemical profiles and quantities of the marker bioactive alkaloids.

Plant germline development: a tale of cross-talk, signaling, and cellular interactions
In bryophytes and ferns, the dimorphic gametophytes are free-living, but their development has become dependent on the sporophyte in seed plants, opening a multitude of opportunities for interactions and cross-talk between the two generations, many of which are discussed in this issue of Sexual Plant Reproduction.
