    ZHU Hua;ZHAO Chong-Jiang;WANG Hong;ZHOU Shi-Shun;SHI Ji-Pu;LI Bao-Gui
    Bulletin of Botanical Research    2006, 26 (1): 38-52.   DOI: 10.7525/j.issn.1673-5102.2006.01.011
    Abstract2485)      PDF(pc) (694KB)(354)       Save
    Caiyanghe Nature Reserve in Simao is located at a transitional area from the tropical southern to the subtropical center of Yunnan. Intensive floristic inventory was made in the Nature Reserve. Total 1920 species of seed plants belonging to 836 genera and 178 families were recorded. Orchidaceae with 223 species of 69 genera is the largest family in size in the nature reserve, and other abundant families in species richness are Rubiaceae with 100 species of 37 genera, Compositae with 86 species of 47 genera, Papilionaceae with 82 species of 33 genera, Labiatae with 62 species of 28, Euphorbiaceae with 59 species of 25 genera, Urticaceae with 5 species of 13 genera, Gramineae with 47 species of 34 genera, Lauraceae with 44 species of 12 genera, Moraceae with 44 species of 6 genera, and Acanthaceae with 36 species of 26 genera etc. The areal types at generic and specific levels are analyzed respectively. The tropical elements contribute to 83.3% at generic level and 70.0% at specific level of the flora, of which tropical Asian (Indo-Malaysia) elements contribute to 31% at generic level and 60.0% at specific level. Thus it is obvious that the flora of the Nature Reserve in Simao is of tropical in nature and belongs to Indo-Malesia floristic kingdom. As the nature reserve is located at a transitional area of tropical south to subtropical Yunnan, many tropical plants reach up their northern limit of distribution here. Therefore, the flora of Caiyanghe Nature Reserve is transitional toward the subtropical flora of Yunnan. Based on comparison to the flora of Xishuangbanna in southern Yunnan and the flora of Wuliangshan in center Yunnan, it is revealed that Tropical Asian elements reduced conspicuously, while Northern temperate and Eastern Asian elements increased conspicuously in the transition from tropical Asian flora to Eastern Asian flora in southern Yunnan.

    The developmental process of embryo and endosperm of Tamarix chinensis was observed by means of traditional paraffin wax sections. The following results were obtained: The development of embryo was of Solanad type, and the division of proembryo basal cell was vertical. The basal cells of suspensor developed rapidly, which had haustorial function. At the globular embryo stage, the suspensor had well developed, which was richly cytoplasmic and contained abundant starch, and its remnants still exicted in the late heart-shaped embryo stage. Additional embryo resulted from the fertilized synergid was observed in T. chinensis. The development of endosperm was of Nuclear type. The primary endosperm nucleus division was often posterior to zygote, and its division speed was also slower than that of embryo cells. Wall formation in the endosperm was initiated at the late heart-shaped embryo when there were 32 free nuclei. Few further division occured after cellularization in the endosperm. There were only two layers of nucellus which had abundant cytoplasm and reserved substance, and were consumed at the stage of late heart-shaped embryo.

    The spores of the Macrothelypteris torresiana (Gaud.) Ching were cultured in the mixed soil. The spore germination and the gametophytic development were observed by microscope. The result exhibits that the spores are brown, monolete, and semicircle-shaped in equatorial view and elliptical in polar view. The spores germinate about three days after sowing. The germination is of the Vittaria-type while the gametophyte development is of Drynaria-type. The prothallial plates come into form about seven days after sowing. The radius is not so obvious between the germ filaments stage and the prothallial plates stage. Hairs can occur on both the surfaces and margin of the prothalli. The young prothalli develop in 21 days after sowing and the mature prothalli are cordate. The Antheridium form in 35 days after sowing. The antheridia are like pellets and composed of 3 cells. The archegonial neck is usually formed by 4 rows of cells and 4 to 5 cells high at maturity. Young embryos can be observed growing from the prothalli in one month after sowing.

    The experiment was conducted to determine diurnal changes of net photosynthetic rate ( Pn), transpiration rate ( Tr), stomatal conductance ( Gs), water use efficiency ( WUE), and environmental factors in Iris lactea Pall. var. chinensis (Fisch.) Koidz grown in salt-alkali soil. The data acquired in this study showed that diurnal changes of Pn and Tr were two-peak-type-curve and were marked by a midday depression of Pn, which could be fully accounted for by Gs changes. Carboxylic efficiency ( CE), photosynthetic rate at saturation for intercellular CO 2 concentration (A 350),apparent quantum yield ( AQY), and photosynthetic rate at light saturation ( P max) all decreased at midday. The results indicated that the midday depression could be attributed to the rising leaf temperature caused by increased strong solar radiation ( PAR).

    A total RNA extraction method is introduced, the main extraction reagents used in this method are SDS, chloroform and Tris-phenol, and the reagents of RNA precipitation are LiCl and ethanol. The total RNAs were successfully extracted from Tamarix androssowii(woody plant), Puccinellia tenuiflora (herbage), Saperda populnea (insect), Saccharomyces cerevisiae(fungi) and White-rot fungi by using this method. The total RNA extracted by this method produced clear bands, and the ratios of A260/A280 were above 1.8. The analysis of RNA precipitation efficiency showed that total RNA could be deposited completely in 10 minutes by the cooperation of LiCl and ethanol. At the same time, high purity DNA also can be isolated by this method, the quality of extracted RNA can meet the need of some molecule biology work requiring high quality RNA, such as cDNA library construction, labeling probes for gene chip and RT-PCR. The above described shows this method for RNA isolation can be widely applied.

    Taking seedlings of Dodonaea viscosa, Leucaena leucocephala and Tephrosia candida from Jin Sha River as materials, the effects of drought stress on their lipid peroxidation and activity of defense enzymes under natural drought stress were studied in contrast to effects under watering. The results show that the cytomembrane permeability, MDA content, SOD and POD activity are all more or less changed under drought stress although the extent and process of variation is different. As for Leucaena leucocephala seedlings, MDA is not the main product of lipid peroxidation and Tephrosia candida seedlings do not only rely on SOD and POD action to reduce active oxygen content. Through comprehensive analysis on water holding capacity of leaf, cytomembrane permeability, MDA content and SOD, POD activity, Dodonaea viscosa seedlings show the highest drought resistance, then Leucaena leucocephala, Tephrosia candida the last.

    Abstract2276)      PDF(pc) (220KB)(429)       Save
    Pollination ecology of cultivated Lilium pumilumu was studied preliminarily. Results showed that the flowers of L. pumilum is come into blossom at 2:30~3:30 a.m. and in full-blown at 5:30~7:00 p.m. The florescence of individual flower and population flowers are 3~4 d and 12 d, respectively. Nectar secrets in the first day of florescence and reaches maximum at 9:00~11:00 a.m. The peak of nectar secretion is consistent with the peak of insects visiting flowers. The main constitutes of nectar volatile are glucose, arabinose, β-D fructopyranose, palmic acid, methylpalmitate, myristic acid, lauric acid and tridecane. L. pumilum propagates mainly by cross-pollination, partly by self-copulation. Flower-visiting insects concern the species of Nymphalidae, Apoidea and Syrphidae. Pollinating insects involve Argynnis paphia, Venessa indica, Aporia crataegi, Megachile willoughbiella and Lasioglossum denticolle. Among them Lasioglossum denticolle is the most active insect. During sunny day, the frequency for visiting flowers of Lasioglossum denticolle is positive correlation extremely and remarkably with the daily change of light intensity and temperature, respectively and is negative correlation evidently with humidity. But during cloudy day, the frequency for visiting flowers of this insect is correlated extremely with air temperature and correlated notably with air humidity.

    The experiment was conducted to investigate effects on initial growth of Lolium perenne L.under Cu 2+, Zn 2+, Cd 2+ and Pb 2+ stress. The results showed that four heavy metals didn’t inhibit seed germination significantly, especially Cu 2+ and Zn 2+ stress. At high concentrations, Cu 2+ and Cd 2+ stress decreased plant height, root length and aboveground biomass greatly, especially Cu 2+ which inhibited root growth mostly. Compared with control, root length decreased by 85.48% at Cu 2+ level of 300 mg·L -1. High level of Cd 2+ decreased chlorophyll content significantly. Compared with control, chlorophyll content decreased by 45.51% at Cd 2+ level of 300 mg·L -1. Chlorophyll contents increased at all stress levels of Cu 2+ and Zn 2+.From the process of progreessive stress, some heavy metal had positive effect on some growth index at low concentrations, but inhibited growth at high concentrations.

    Using light microscope to observe the change of the dissection structure of Rorippa islandica (Oed.)Borb in the development course of its root and finding that the root of Rorippa islandica (Oed.)Borb. has anomalous secondary structure. In the secondary structure in early period of the first year, formed supernumerary cambium in the surrounding of the vessel and from supernumerary cambium to inside and outside splitted and formed a lot of parenchyma, thus making the root increase thick fast, on the transverse section of the root, the vessel dispersed in the parenchyma. In the secondary structure in later period of the first year, using the dedifferentiation of the sells of parenchyma in the xylem to form supernumerary cambium, many dispersive supernumerary cambium snippets connected and formed cambium cylinder, cambium cylinder splitted into inside and outside and formed tertiary xylem and tertiary phloem, thus composing tertiary fibrovascular cylinder , the formative direction of the tertiary fibrovascular cylinder was from outside to inside and might form multicylinder. In the second year the parenchyma of the phloem and cortex of Rorippa islandica (Oed.)Borb. dedifferentiated and formed supernumerary cambium, and using supernumerary cambium snippets to connect and form supernumerary cambium cylinder, thus splitted and formed tertiary fibrovascular cylinder, and also formed multicylinder in the cortex, and its formative direction was form outside to inside. The anomalous secondary structure of Rorippa islandica (Oed.)Borb. in the different development period of its root corresponded to its physiological activities.

    68 quadrats were divided into eight types of communities by TWINSPAN, which can be treated as one-dimension resource states. The niche breadths and overlaps of main dominant species were measured using a series of indices proposed by Levins, Shannon-wiener and Petraitis. Among general communities, Carex lanceolata and Poa pratensis niche breadths value being biggest prove that adaptive capacity to community’s environment are the strongest, the ability to use resources is the strongest too. In different communities (community Ⅰ to community Ⅷ), niche breadths are great difference to the same specie-pairs, Poa pratensis niche breadths in community Ⅱ, B1 is 2.753, B2 is 15.561; in community Ⅷ, B1 is 0, B2 is 1; In the general community, the niche breadths of specie-pairs are obviously greater than in other community. The larger the niche overlap of two species is, the more similarly resource space they occupy. the niche overlap of Leontopodium leontopodioides and Polygonum viviparum amounts to 0.892 (in the community Ⅰ). This proves that they are very similar in utilizing the resources. In the general community, the niche overlaps among species are very low.

    Mian Mountain is located in the northern of Taiyue Ranges and the middle south of Shanxi, at 36°50′N,112°5′E. In this paper, the niche breadth and niche overlapping of 25 dominant populations of vegetation in Mian Mountain, Shanxi, were studied by using Shannon-Weaver index and Portraits’s method. The result indicated that the niche breadth of Quercus liaotungensis (2.458 7), Prunus davidiana (2.342 2), Spiraea, pubescens (2.306 1), Carex lanceolata (2.518 7) and Artemisia brachyloba (2.218 2) were more than that of other species because these species had wide ecological amplitude, and extensive adaptation to environment, which were constructive or dominant species in the communities. There was not completely general overlapping among all 25 species because of their different biological characters and different adaptation to environment. In the arborous layer, there was less niche overlapping between species-pairs except Q. liaotungensis. The niche overlapping between Abelia biflora and S. pubescens (0.663), P. davidiana and Lespedeza bicolor (0.587) were more than that of other species-pairs in the shrub layer. The niche overlapping between C. lanceolata and Phlomis umbrosa (0.339), A. gmelinii and A. brachyloba (0.245) were more than that of the other species-pairs in the herb layer. The species-pairs having more niche overlapping had similar biological characters and similar adaptation to environment; on the contrary, those having less niche overlapping had different biological traits and different adaptation to environment. For example, A. biflora and S. pubescens, C. lanceolata and Phlomis umbrosa were shade-tolerant plants and had some shade tolerance, otherwise P. davidiana and L. bicolor, A. gmelinii and A. brachyloba were sun plants.

    The total proteins was extracted from rice leaves, and quantified by Coomassie Brilliant Blue G-250. We got four classifications from rice total proteins by using Ammonium Sulfate Precipitation, which was very important because we got easy way to separate and classify the total proteins. Also, it was useful for the purification of glycoproteins. The four classifications then purified by using ConA-Sepharose 4B Affinity Chromatography, the liquid of glycoproteins was collected by tubes in the same time of the appearances of absorption peaks. We even got some dry samples by using vacuum freezing and drying technology. Next, we done SDSPAGE and determination respectively by Periodic Acid Schiff(PAS) staining and Coomassie Brilliant Blue(CBB) R250 staining. In the gel of CBB staining, there are near 30 strips of different glycoproteins(some are glycopeptides) in the last three classifications; but the gel of PAS staining only showed 7 strips of different glycoproteins(some are glycopeptides) only because of the sensitivities of PAS much lower than CBB staining. The last step, we choose three glycoproteins showed on the gel of 50%~80% glycoproteins classification, all of them have higher contents than others. We further purified each of the three glycoproteins directly from the SDS-PAGE gels. They are proved purified glycoproteins or glycopeptides by CBB and PAS staining again. The three glycoproteins are named respectively as RG1, RG2 and RG3.
