Tissue culture studies on Peperomia clusifolia Hook. and Strongylodon macrobotrys A. Gray.
Tissue culture studies were carried out on two ornamental plant species, Strongylodon macrobotrys A. Gray and Peperomia clusifolia Hook. Successful in vitro regeneration of plantlets was achieved in the latter species, using ...
The plant ecology of seasonally flooded areas of the Pongolo River Floodplain, with particular reference to Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers.
The impounding of the waters of the Pongolo river, upstream of its floodplain on the Mocambique coastal plain, may adversely affect the functioning of the floodplain system. A multidisciplinary study of the functioning ...
