There is a growing interest in correlating biochemical constituents of plants with their taxonomic properties. Generally the genus Ailanthus is noted for the presence of quassinoids, alkaloids, lipids, fatty acids, terpenoids and some proteins. In this study, we aimed to investigate the similarities and/or differences in the chemical constituents and protein patterns of different Ailanthus species. We assume that our parameters may be used as an additional tool for chemotaxonomic studies and…

The exotic tree Ailanthus altissima was established in a densely closed forest in West Virginia, which was analyzed with the aim to elucidate possible pathways of persistence in forest succession of this light-demanding pioneer species.
Nutritional Evaluation of Fodder Tree Leaves with Goats
Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the nutritional value of common fodder tree leaves with goats fed at 50% of total ration and results showed that crude protein values were higher in all the species during spring compared to winter.
Use of two-dimensional protein-pattern analysis for the characterization of Arabidopsis thaliana mutants
The simultaneous analysis of the two-dimensional protein patterns of different mutants seems, therefore, to be a promising approach to characterize proteins involved in various physiological functions.
