Molecular characterisation of the gene encoding [Delta 1]-Pyrroline-5- Carboxylate Reductase isolated from Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh.
In Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heyhn, the size of the pool of free proline increases up to 27-fold in response to osmotic stress. The magnitude of this accumulation is dependent upon the rate of imposition of the stress. ...
Aspects of the role of cytokinins in adventitious root formation.
The initiation and development of adventitious roots in cuttings are highly complex processes, influenced by both endogenous and exogenous factors. These vary from the environmental factors prior to the striking of the ...
Studies on the primary phloem of Gomphocarpus physocarpus.
Penetration of the stems and leaves of Gomphocnrpus physocarpus by the aphid, Aphis nerii was studied with light and phase microscopes. Penetration of the epidermis and ground tissue was largely intercellular, that ...

Tissue culture studies on citrus and Welwitschia.
Part I. IN VITRO CULTURE OF CITRUS EMBRYOS AND NUCELLAR ISOLATES Zygotic embryos of the Ellendale mandarin, a monoembryonic variety of citrus, were cultured on modified basal media of Murashige and Skoog (BM), and ...
Isolation and characterisation of senescence-related genes in carnations.
Senescence has been the subject of many studies, with the ultimate goal of increasing longevity of cut flowers, and for insight into the process of ageing. Senescence in the carnation is a complex phenomonen involving ...
Ultrastructure of the germinating Welwitschia mirabilis seed.
The structure and chemical composition of quiescent Welwitschia mirabilis (Hooker fil.) seeds and resultant changes occurring during the first 7 days of germination were studied. Research was focussed on the megagametophyte ...
A plant ecological survey of the Umfolozi Game Reserve, Zululand.
A landscape unit approach based on use of airphotos was used for investigation of Deciduous Acacia Woodland in the Reserve. The approach was useful for indicating that a quantity of as few as 531 samples could be suitable ...
Cytokinins in Lupinis albus L.
A review of the literature pertaining to the sites of synthesis, distribution and metabolism of cytokinins, established that there was a need to investigate the quantitative and qualitative changes in cytokinin ...
Abscisic acid and other hormonal effects on growth in Spirodela.
The effects of abscisic acid In particular, as well well as gibberellic acid and the cytoklnlns, 6-benzyladenine, kinetin, and 6-dlmethylal lalylamlnopurine, on the growth of Spirodela oligorrhiza were investigated. Abscisic ...
