    The microcharacteristics of leaf surface in Lysimachia were investigated by using light microscope (LM) and scanning electron microscope (SEM). Based on the features of leaf surface, those plants were obviously classified into two types, heterogenea-type and capillipes-type. The features of leaf, such as the presence or absence of the glands, the color and distribution of the glands, and the ornamentation of adaxial side, are quite constant at intraspecific level, but remarkably varied at interspecific level, which might have significant taxonomic value for species identification. In the 21 investigated species, 1 species was from Subgen. Idiophyton, 11 species from Subgen. Lysimachia, and 9 species from Subgen. Palladia. Since 2 types of leaf surface structure were found both in Subgen. Lysimachia and Subgen. Palladia, they could not be used as the characters to define subgenus.

    This article used the methods of random amplified polymorphic DNA(RAPD) with bulked segregant analysis(BSA) to identify markers that linked to sex determination in the dioecious Hippophae goniocarpa. DNA was extracted and two bulks were created, each containing equal amounts of DNA from ten individual of Hippophae goniocarpa. A total of 194 primers were screened. 50 primers produced clear patterns with at least one band that appeared to be polymorphic between male and female bulks. Sebsequently, 5 male and female individuals were analysed with those 50 primers, and only S10(CTGCTGGGAC) could generate a common 1030 bp DNA fragment in all five female individuals and female pool but not in any male individuals. In the present study, the sex-linked RAPD marker, S10-1030, showed that there were different between female and male Hippophae goniocarpa on the level of DNA molecule and can be concluded that gender of Hippophae goniocarpa most likely is genetically determined. While the further research should focus on designing the more reliable molecular marker that based on the sex-determination gene, such as SCAR marker, for accurate and quick determination the gender of seedling in Hippophae goniocarpa.

    It was reported that there was a negative correlation between amylose content and protein content in the rice seeds. In this research anti- waxy- gus fusion gene was transferred into the rice immature embryo callus by Agrobacterium infection. Eight transgenic plants (fertile) were obtained. That the anti- waxy- gus fusion gene had been integrated into the eight transgenic plants’ genomes was testified by PCR and Southern blot tests and the anti- waxy- gus fusion gene could be expressed correctly by GUS-dyeing in grain of rice. Sixteen homozygous transgenic plants in anti- waxy- gus fusion gene position were obtained through GUS analyses. Amylose and protein contents in the sixteen plants’ seeds were analyzed. The results indicated:(1) There were significant negative correlations between protein contents and amylose contents in the sixteen transgenic plants’ seeds; (2) Amylose average content and protein average content in the control were respectively 13.4% and 9.5%. The amylose content in one transgenic plant was lowest (11.4%), at the same time its protein content was highest (13.5%). This shows that tasting quality and nutritional quality of rice seeds are improved by introducing anti- waxy gene.

    This paper focuses on change of the species diversity of Juglans mandshurica in different cutting way, which based on field investigations from different permanent sample plots in the Changbai Mountain forest area by using Simpson index (SI), Shanon-Wiener index(SH-WI),Cody index( β c)and important value (IV). The studies showed that change diversity in herb layer is more obvious than tree layer and shrub layer in the forest. all of Simpson index, Shanon-Wiener index and Cody index( β c)were increased from remaining plot to selective cutting plot to clearing cutting plot. From the ordination of important value, there was obvious change after selective cutting or clearing cutting compared with remaining plot. We think that the diversity change seems to been caused by cutting interference, and reason is by light changing actually as well as by edge effect from time scale. Besides, by investigation on regeneration of J. mandshurica, both higher diversity of plants and well growth of seedling of J. mandshurica in clearing cutting plot are related to light factor, and it is no relationship between diversity of plants and well growth of J.mandshurica.

    The species diversity of virgin forests and secondary forests in eastern mountain area of Heilongjiang Province were studied composing with quantitative community dynamics. And we researched the relationship between community dynamics, environmental gradient, growth rate, disturbance of forest and species diversity. The results showed that species diversity of secondary forests is higher than that of virgin forest, but the evenness is lower. The forest productivity is middle in the community that the species diversity is higher, however, not only the productivity is the highest but also the species diversity is the lowest. The species diversity is the highest in the community of middle intensive disturbance. The species diversity indices are increasing from the initial stage to the middle stage of succession then decreasing in the climax stage.

    This paper gives some details about the development of embryo in Lygodium japonicum (Thunb.)Sw. using the method of serial sections. In this species, the first division of zygote produces two equal hemispheric cells by the first partition wall at the right angles to the axis of the archegonium. The daughter cell near the neck of the archegonium gives rise to the vegetable organs, the other cell away from the neck develops to the feet. The apical cell of the first leaf and of the first root originate almost at the same time after the embryo reaches to the 32-celled phase. The second leaf takes place at the basal part of the first leaf and originates from the shoot apex cells when the first leaf pierces the calyptra. On the basis of the structure of vegetable organs, the first leaf and root are the earliest organs in the development of embryo.

    Twenty-three morphological characters among three species, Cotoneaster multiflorus, C.submultiflorus and C.melanocarpus from genus Cotoneaster Medikus, were compared by statistical analysis. Mean value and coefficient of variability (CV) indicated that the variations at intraspecies level were more or less vary in different characters and species. Results from the one-factor analysis of variance (one-factor ANOVA) showed that there was a significant variation at interspecies level in the 18 characters studied and the variation between C. melanocarpus and the other two species was more marked. The process of Stepwise Discriminant Analysis (SDA) indicated that 6 of the characters (hair on adaxial leaf surface, hair on pedicels, shape of base in midvein, shape of apex in midvein, orientation of arc in up quarter margin, petiole length/leaf length) were the key ones to distinguish 3 species, and besides, 82 materials could be specifically categorized into 3 groups. It is reasonable to consider C.submultiflorus, which is intermediate from C. multiflorus and C. melanocarpus in morpohological characters, as a species.

    Comparative micromorphology of the leaves of 2 species and 3 populations in Melampyrum from Anhui were studied with epidermal maceration,electron microscope and paraffin section method.The results are as follows:the shapes of leaf epidermal cells which have chloroplast, are irregular and the anticlinal walls are sinuous,sinuate, or double-sinuate, the cuticular membrane of leaf epidermis is striated; Both trichome and glandular are on the epidemis,the trichome has neoplasitic process under SEM. The palisade tissue consists of only one lay cells which line up loosely,and the spongy tissue has developed interstitial space; The stomatal apparatus which only distribute in lower epidermis are mainly of anomocytic type,but few concur to have only one accessory cell. Under SEM observation, the inner margin of outer stomatal ledge is near smooth or sinuolate. The results show that the significant micromorphological differences among two species are the pattern of anticlinal,the density of trichome,the length and width ration of stomatal apparatus, the ratio of palisade tissue to apongy tissue and the characters of middle veins,but there are not many differences among 3 populations of Melampyrum roseum.

    Endogenous hormones, including gibberellin (GA 4), indole acetic acid (IAA), isopentenyl adenine (iPA) and abscisic acid (ABA), were analyzed during bolting in spring radish ( Raphanus sativus L.). Tissue from young leaves near the apex was analyzed with the ELISA. The results showed that an obvious peak value of GA 4 content occurred at the bud-emerging point, indicating that this hormone is an important contributor to the bolting process. The ABA had a similar trend to that of GA 4, while the IAA content was relatively low compared with that of GA 4 and ABA. The content of iPA increased gradually during the bud-emerging stage and reached a maximum value at the late bolting period. The results also demonstrated that the balance of these endogenous hormones play an important role in the bolting process. A high ratio of iPA/ABA and low ratio of GA 4/iPA and GA 4/IAA were beneficial to floral bud differentiation and bolting in radish.

    cDNA microarray method was employed to study genes expression pattern in Tamarix androssowii under drought stress. cDNAs from T.androssowii treated with drought stress and control group were labeled with two fluorescence dyestuff Cy5 and Cy3,and hybridize with cDNA microarray containing T.androssowii genes. Gene expression under drought stress was studied through scanning and analysis of gene chip by computer. Totally 47 down-regulated genes and 62 up-regulated genes were obtained. Blastx analysis showed that the function of these genes could be grouped into the categorizations such as dehydration protection,signal transduction and regulation,active oxygen scavenging,photosynthesis,metabolism,ribosomal protein,and protein breakdown and recycling. At the same time,some function unknown genes and new genes related to drought stress were also found. This research revealed some important pathways of drought-resistance in T.androssowii,such as active oxygen scavenging,regulation of metabolism,dehydration protection and protein breakdown and recycling.In addition,the differential expression of genes in T.androssowii before and after drought stress were also elucidated.
