    The gametophytic development of the fern Pteris fauriei Hieron. was observed by microscope and stereomicroscope. The result exhibits that the spores are dark brown, tetrahedral, and trilete, blunt triangular in polar view and supersemispherical shape in equatorial view. The spores germinate about 3-7 days after sowed. The germination is of the Vittaria type. The gametophyte develops into 6-10 cell-long filament about 18 days after sowed. The prothallial plates form about 25 days after sowed by division of the apical cell or intercalary cells of the filament. The gametophyte forms the meristematic tissue in the lateral of the plate, away from the apical region, and grows into prothallus in about 40-50 days after sowed. The pattern of the prothallial development belongs to the Ceratopteris type. The male prothalli are usually small and irregular in shape. The antheridia are produced in the margin or in the ventral side of the male prothalli. The large prothalli are usually regular in shape and cordate in the apical. An asexual bud is formed in the lower surface of the gametophyte just behind the growing apex in about 2-3 months after sowed. After the asexual bud is formed, a vessel is formed between the bud and the growing apex. So the reproduction of the species P.fauriei is apogamous. The repeat cultures show that no archegonia were occurred in the adult prothalli. This species belongs to obligate apogamy.

    A series of researches were studied on megasporogenesis, microsporogenesis and the development of male and female gametophytes in fertile line and male sterile line’s flowers of Tagetes erecta L. by the paraffin sectioning method. The cytological observation showed that the ovaries of both fertile line and male sterile line had one chamber, each of which had one ovule that was unitegmic, tenuinucellate and anatropous. After meiosis, the megasporocytes divided into four linearly arrayed megaspores, the ones of which at chalazal end usually had functional capacity. The development of embryo sacs belonged to polygonum type. The microsporic tetrads of the fertile line belonged to the tetrahedral type, and mature pollen was two-celled with bristles on the surface. The anthers of the fertile line had four microsporangiates, and the development of anther wall was of dicotyledonous type and the tapetum belonged to glandular type. The anther’s development of male sterile line was blocked at the stage of flower bud differentiation. There was not the primordium of stamen in male sterile line’s mutative floret during the differentiation.

    Population structure and quantitative characteristics are useful information that reflect mechanism of the population formation and its relevant influencing factors. Rhodiola fastigiata is national level 2 protective plant species that presently under approximately dangerous state and has been listed in CHINA SPECIES RED LIST. We investigated its population structure and quantitative characteristics in order to provide theoretical basis for the survival mechanism and conservation of the population.A total of 304 sample plots in 76 sample area was established on the south slope, north slope, viewing platform and top of the highway near National Station for Field Observation and Research of Alpine Forest Ecosystem, located in Sejila mountain, Linzhi, Tibet.R. fastigiata mainly distributes in six communities in the Sejila mountains: Abies georgei var. smithii forest (P1), Sabina saltuaria forest (P2), Rhododendron aganniphum shrub (P3), Salix pilosomicrophylla shrub (P4), R. lepidotum shrub (P5) and S. sclerophylla shrub (P6). The average density of R. fastigiata in the communities was ranked in the order of P3>P1>P2>P4>P6>P5 while the average basal diameter followed by the order of P6>P2>P5>P4>P1>P3. The order of P6>P2>P5>P1>P3>P4 was found for the average height, P6>P2>P1>P3>P5>P4 for the average scape number, P6>P5>P2>P1>P3>P4 for the average number of scape rings, P6>P1>P3>P2>P4>P5 for the average number of branches, and P5>P4>P3>P2>P1>P6 for the important values. The basal diameter, the height and the scape rings of R. fastigiata population have shown different deformity in different communities. With less numbers of larvae and larger number of the adult and the old, but there were obvious periodic phenomena in its seed propagation and vegetative propagation under natural condition, so it was also an increase type population. The R. fastigiata’s large breeding population cycle was 8-10 years through the scape ring analysis. The percentage of plant number with branches range within 5 to 8 was over 50% in R. fastigiata and the largest numbers of branches was up to 45, but these branches were relatively slender because of limited nutrition absorption from the roots. The number of scape distributed on lateral branches was 1~2, and accounting for 32.21%, the scape above 7 accounted for 25.82%, mainly on the main axis. On the whole, more scape was found in the main axis than in the lateral branches. The growth parameters of R. fastigiata increased with the increase of the basal diameter.

    The morphological characteristics of Huperzia serrata(Thunb.) Trev. were described, and a few different characteristics were found. In addition, the relationship between the stomata characteristics and the illumination intensity was analyzed. The results showed the length, width and area of single stomata, the stomata density and the total stomata area increased when the illumination intensity kept rising within a certain limit. However, all of these stomata parameters decreased when the illumination intensity surpassed a certain value except the stomata density and the stomata index. The stomata of small sizes and high densities were the characteristics fitted for the arid conditions, indicting that this plant was ecological adaptive, but when it was under cultivation high illumination intensity should be avoided.

    It is generally hypothesized that tree leaves at different crown position generally adjust their structural and functional traits to achieve an optimal performance. However, it is not well understood the intra-and inter-species variation. This study investigated the foliar response of five broadleaf tree species in Northeast China to crown position (upper outer, upper inner, lower outer and lower inner). We focused on the morphological (leaf thickness), anatomical (stomatal density, guard cell length, palisade and spongy thickness) and leaf nitrogen (N) content. The results show that, there were markedly differences for the leaf traits among species or crown positions, and some strong trends were shown. Across all species, leaf and palisade thickness were both the highest at upper outer position in a crown, comparing with other locations; guard cell length and spongy thickness varied slightly within crown, but variation of leaf N content was related to species examined. Crown height and exposure degree had strong influences on leaf structure and N content variations. Among 5 species, Quercus mongolica exhibited the highest stomatal density, while the lowest guard cell length, leaf and spongy thickness, however, the reverse was Phellodendran amurrense. Our study suggests that leaves of tree species show general structure optimization in order to improve whole-tree performance.

    The hybrid poplar is the important garden and afforestation tree species on Songnen Plain saline-alkali land, long-term field monitoring is the key to evaluate and optimize superior varieties. Under the natural conditions, different four-year-old cutting seedlings of Qing Shan Yang (Populus Pseudo-cathayana×P. deltodides cv. Shan Hai Guan), Xiao Hei 14 (Populus×xiao hei T.S. Hwang et Liang ‘14’) and Zhong Hei Fang (Populus deltoids×P. cathayana) that grew at different saline-alkali land in Daqing City were used as the research (study) materials. Through the comparison and analysis of the growth (height and basal diameter), root activity, root respiration and chlorophyll content, the growth adaptability and salinity tolerance differences in the saline-alkali soil were explored. The results show that, with the saline-alkali stress(soil electrical conductivity from 609.33 μs·cm-1 to 910.48 μs·cm-1 and pH from 8.92 to 8.98) enhanced, the growth of hybrid poplar was restrained obviously,the tree heights of Qing Shan Yang merely declined 20%,only one half of that for Zhong Hei Fang and Xiao Hei 14.With the saline-alkali stress enhanced, root activity and root respiration were enhanced, the root activity of Qing Shan Yang, Zhong Hei Fang and Xiao Hei 14 improved 10.75%,15.90%and 33.17% respectively, root respiration of Qing Shan Yang merely increased 3.59%, that of the other two varieties increased more than 24%.However, in saline-alkali stress the chlorophyll content was less affected, the annual mean was decreased slightly,Chla/b ratio was increased, smaller differences existed between different species. Comprehensive researches of various indices of three hybrid poplars,the ability of tollerance to saline-alkali stress of Qing Shan Yang is stronger than the other two. The growth of Qing Shan Yang is obviously better than Zhong Hei Fang and Xiao Hei 14, which were generally applied on saline-alkali land at present. Comparatively speaking,Qing Shan Yang is an improved hybrid poplar variety for afforestation and greening on saline-alkali land.

    Effects of different concentrations of eutrophic water on physio-ecological characteristics of Festuca arundinacea L. was investigated. The results showed that the diluted eutrophic water could significantly promote root growth of F.arundinacea. When diluted concentration was more than 50%, it inhibited plant height growth. Diluted concentration of the eutrophic waters had no significant effect on chlorophyll content, proline, soluble sugar, malondialdehyde (MDA) content, super-oxide dismutase (SOD) activity of F.arundinacea L.. The outer ring water could promote peroxidase (POD) activity, and 75% concentration could increase catalase (CAT) activity. From the analyses above, it could be concluded that irrigation with diluted eutrophic water would be feasible to F. arundinacea L., and quarters water was optimal for the irrigation.

    Barley grain is a complex trait controlled by QTL, and RING E3 ubiquitin ligase plays a vital role in grain yield and protein degradation pathway. According to the conservative region of E3 ubiquitin ligase family homologous sequences, such as rice, Arabidopsis, corn, wheat and yeast, one pair of specific primers was designed and used to clone the corresponding gene from barley by RTPCR amplification. The results showed that a full-length cDNA sequence of HvYrg1 gene from Tibetan barley was obtained, which includes a integrity of open reading frame (ORF) 1 275 bp, encoding 424 amino acids (GenBank No. EU333863). Homology comparison showed that HvYrg1 gene shared 86% identity with rice GW2 gene reported in GenBank. Based on plant expression vector pCAMBIA2300-35s-OCS plasmid, we constructed a plant RNAi vector driven by 35 s promoter, namely pCAM-RNAi-HvYrg1 to further investigate its functions on crop yield formation.

    According to the results of physiological indexes of the Populus euphraticn’ leaves and the data of groundwater depth from 2001 to 2007, some conclusions could be drawn primarily: After water conveyance, some physiological indexes of the P. euphraticn’ leaves obviously changed with the groundwater depth and the relieve of water-stress intensity, and these changes presented certain correlations with the varying of groundwater depth. In the 10 parameters, chlorophyll content, soluble sugar and abscisic acid (ABA) had high correlations with the groundwater depth of the growth sites, showing that these parameters could be used as indicators for manifesting the extent of water stress of P. euphraticn. The indexes of malondialdehyde (MDA) and cytokinin (CTK) could be regarded as reference indexes of the extent of water stress which P. euphraticn suffering from. While, the physiological indexes of proline (Pro), superoxide dismutase (SOD), peroxidase (POD), gibberellin (GA3) and indoleacetic acid (IAA) were not sensitive to the change of the groundwater depth.

    Drought-sensitive mutant(dri1) and drought-insensitive mutant(drs1) of Arabidopsis thaliana were screened with infrared thermography from an ethyl methane sulfonate-mutagenized population. These mutants were identified as monogenic recessive mutations. Stomata density of these mutants was the same as that of wild type. While, their stomata apertures, water loss and leaf temperature were distinct compared with those of wild type under drought stress. In addition, seed germination test on MS medium indicated that dri1 was more insensitive to ABA, mannitol and NaCl than the wild type, but drs1 was not.
