A new species, Epilobium ulleungensis J. M. Chung (Onagraceae Juss), from Ulleungdo Island (South Korea) was described and illustrated and has a unique tetragonal stigma, which is considered to be an intermediate form between clavate or capitate and E. pyrricholophum or E. amurense subsp. Expand
Sexual interference in two Chamerion species with contrasting modes of movement herkogamy
The effects of the two contrasting modes of herkogamy, detailed by the different patterns of style movement, on the foraging time of pollinators on flowers, pollen removal, and deposition in two Chamerion species are examined. Expand
Potential Allelopathic Effects of Ludwigia adscendens L. on the Seed Germination and Seedling Growth of Rice
The plumules of rice seedlings were more sensitive to allelopathic effects than radicles, and increasing concentrations from leaf, stem, and leaf+stem of this weed significantly inhibited water uptake by rice seeds, which correlated with increased electrolyte leakage. Expand
