Management and use of Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.—the lotus plant—was studied in 58 wetlands distributed throughout Thailand. Although traditionally harvested in extractive systems depending on natural wetlands, N. nucifera is now increasingly being managed. Two hundred eighty informants mentioned 20 different uses, mainly for food, medicine, and religious rites, in both subsistence and cash economies. The uses of N. nucifera appeared to be rather generalized throughout the country even if… 

Genetic resources of lotus (Nelumbo) and their improvement

Lotus ( Nelumbo ) is one of the top ten flowers in China, which has high ornamental, edible and medicinal value. Lotus has a been cultivated for thousands of years. Through discovery and cultivation,

The level of genetic diversity and differentiation of tropical lotus, Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn. (Nelumbonaceae) from Australia, India, and Thailand

It is proposed that complementary conservation approaches ought to be introduced to conserve tropical lotus, depending on the genetic variations and threat levels in populations.

Enhanced flowering of sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.) by extending the photoperiod with supplemental lighting techniques

Extended photoperiods from 11 to 13 h, 11 to 15 h and 13 to15 h only increased the flowering percentage compared with that of constant photoperperiods of 11 and 13 h but delayed the date of visible flowering.

Evaluation of Sacred Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.) as an Alternative Crop for Phyto-remediation

Lotus proved to be an effective phyto-remediator of nutrient run-off (NH4+, NO3, P ) and suspended solids from waste water from intense aquaculture systems.

Species composition, population dynamics, and assessment of biopesticide application on thrips (Thysanoptera) in Sacred lotus Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.

Biopesticides, such as wood vinegar, are alternative methods for thrip control in sacred lotus because they are easily biodegradable and do not cause resistance build-up among the pests.

In vitro plant regeneration of lotus (Nelumbo nucifera)

An efficient and reproducible plant regeneration system for lotus was established using shoot apical meristems from the buds and one-week-old aseptically germinated embryos as explants to establish fertile plants with much bigger leaves in the greenhouse.

Phytochemical Screening, Isolation, and Characterization & Biological Evaluation of Ethanolic Extract of Nelumbo Nucifera Leaf.

It may be concluded that extract of leaf of NN, could reduce the inflammation and considered for its anti-microbial activity and the Anti-inflammatory (carregeenan induced paw edema method) and Anti-micro microbial efficacy for the Ethanolic extract of leaves of Nelumbo nucifera are investigated.



On the Longevity of Seeds of Nelumbo nucifera

EwART's statements were chiefly based upon the experiments made with seeds kept in dry air for a varying number of years, and it is stated that the probable extreme duration of vitality for any known seeds may be set between HO and 250 years (Legorninosze).

Long-living lotus: germination and soil {gamma}-irradiation of centuries-old fruits, and cultivation, growth, and phenotypic abnormalities of offspring.

Though the chronic exposure of the old fruits to low-dose γ-radiation may be responsible in part for the notably weak growth and mutant phenotypes of the seedlings, it has not affected seed viability.
