    The tepal epidermis of 20 samples,representing 11 species within Illicium Linn.(Illiciaceae),15 samples of 8 species belonging to Kadsura Kaempf. ex Juss.(Schisandraceae),and 17 samples of 6 species in Schisandra Michaux. (Schisandraceae),were investigated using light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. Several characters of tepal epidermis of the three genera in Illiciales,such as patterns of epidermal cells,shapes and distributing of secretory cells,types and distributing of stomatal apparatus,and cuticular ornamentations,were reported for the first time. Two new characters,stomata cluster and cyclotytic stomata,are introduced. The previous studies reported the correlations between the character of outer stomatal rims on leaf epidermis and the habit in Illiciales: single outer stomatal rims occured in deciduous species and double ones only in evergreen species. In this study,all the outer stomatal rims on tepal epidermis in Illiciales are single,different from those on leaf epidermis. Therefore,it is considered that the outer stomatal rims on tepal epidermis and the outer stomatal rims on leaf epidermis are not interrelated. Neither is the latter nor the habit. The characters of tepal epidermis are constant whether the tepals grow in bisexual,male or female flowers,which means this character does not relate with flower sex. Comparing the characters of tepal epidermis among Illicium,Kadsura and Schisandra,it is indicated that Schisandra has more derived characters than Kadsura,and so does Kadsura than Illicium. Additionaly,the similarity,of tepal epidermis between Kadsura and Schisandra,is greater than that between Kadsura and Illicium. Therefore,it seems reasonable to establish Schisandraceae including genera Kadsura and Schisandra,and Illiciaceae only containing the single genus Illicium.

    The evolutionary relationships of genera in Papaveraceae are particularly controversial. The structures and developments of seedlings in 4 species of 3 genera were studied with the methods of tissue cleaning and paraffin section in this paper. Representatives of genus Papaver are Papaver rhoeas and Papaver orientale, while Chelidonium majus and Corydalis bungeana are representatives of genera Chelidonium and Corydalis, respectively. The results indicate the haplostele types are different in the lower part of cotyledon node zone (CNZ) of three genera. Genera Papaver and Chelidonium are exarch diarch rotundity haplostele and rotundity-like haplostele, respectively, and genus Corydalis is exarch diarch “S”-shape haplostele. And the cotyledon venations of three genera seedlings are distinct. Papaver rhoeas and Papaver orientale have only a single primary vein, and no leaf gaps existed on the cotyledon node. Chelidonium majus and Corydalis bungeana have Brochidodromous-Camptodromous-Pinnate venation and Basal-Perfect-Acrodromous venation, respectively. In terms of the evidence from the structures of primary vascular system of seedlings, the evolvement levels of three genera are that Papaver is more primitive, followed by Chelidonium, and Corydalis is the most developed.

    Woodsiaceae and Peranemaceae have always been considered to be two close relatives of families by many scholars, and their systematic positions have long been controversial, which have been placed in Aspidiaceae, Dryopteridoideae (Dennstaedtiaceae) and Athyrioideae (Dryopteridaceae). Nucleotide sequences of the chloroplast trnL-F region from 1 species of Woodsiacear,three species of Peranemaceae,eight species of Dryopteridaceae, two species of Dryopteriaceae and one species inoutgroup (Asplenium pseudolaserpitiifolium) were analyzed to gain insights into intergeneric relationships. The phylogenetic relationship was inferred using the neighbor-joining and maximum-parsimony methods, and both methods produced largely congruent trees. These trees reveal that: The relationship of Woodsiaceae and Peranemaceae is farther, Woodsiaceae is close to Athyriaceae, Peranemaceae is sister to Dryopteridaceae, Woodsiaceae and Peranemaceae are belong to different evolution lines. It is suitable that Ching (1978) and Pichi-Sermolii (1977) treeted them as independent families.

    The leaf epidermis of 15 species, representing two sections of the genus Cotoneaster was investigated using light microscopy(LM) and scanning electron microscopy(SEM). In Sect. Cotoneaster, leaf epidermal cells are usually polygonal in shape, straight to arched in pattern of anticlinal wall, and the stomata are anomocytic. While in Sect. Uniflos, leaf epidermal cells are usually irregular in shape, repand or sinuous in pattern of anticlinal wall, the stomata are anomocytic, and staurocytic, tetracytic, isotricytic besides. The fifteen species can be divided into three types: type W, type S, and type I, according to the characters of cuticular membrane surrounding the stomata and the other epidermal characters. Type W is an exceptional type S. Plants of Sect. Cotoneaster investigated here are type W or type S, while plants of Sect. Uniflos belong to type I. The characters mentioned above are of much significance in delimiting sections and species in Cotoneaster.

    The banana seedlings were treated with brassinolid (BR) of different concentrations under the cold-stressed condition. Comparing to the control, the treatment with certain concentration may obvious reduce the electrolyte leakage rate, increase SOD activity, enhance the soluble protein content at a certain extent, slow down the MDA content change, distinctly enhance soluble sugar content, slow down the area of wither and mortalityrate as well as delay the chlorophyll degraded speed of the banana seedling leave. These changes of metabolite have played a key role and important function in enhancing cold-stressed period resistance of banana seedlings. The concentration with the best protected effect is 0.9 mg·L-1.

    The effects of heat and drought on growth and respiration in pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) were studied. Heat stress resulted in a growth reduction in cultivar of Jizhao×Jilin, but not in Zhengjiao No.13. Drought, especially drought under heat, significantly inhibited the growth of peppers. Drought also increased the ion leakage from leaves more than heat and heat strengthened the injury of drought to peppers, which was more seirous observed in Jizhao×Jilin than Zhengjia No.13 did. Heat induced increases both in total, cytochrome and alternative pathway respirations, while drought strongly decreased cytochrome respiration, but increased alternative respiration. Cross effect from both drought and heat strongly decreased both total and cytochrome respirations, however, alternative respiration increased significantly at the initial 1d and then decreased sharply. Zhengjiao No.13 showed higher alternative and total respirations than Jizhao×Jilin under heat or/and drought stresses. These results suggest that higher heat or/and drought tolerance of pepper is associated with the capacity to keep high total and alternative respirations under stresses.

    6 genus 9 species, 15 populations of Athyriaceae from Heilongjiang province were analyzed using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) marks. The results show that: (1)Pseudocystopteris might be placed into Athyrium. (2)Cornopteris has a close relationship with Athyrium, as Gymnocarpium with Cystopteris. (3)Allantodia is an independent genus which has relatively little relationships with other genus in Athyriaceae. According to morphological characteristics and DNA levels, it is suggested that Athyriaceae from Heilongjiang province may be better divided into 3 subfamily, i.e. Cystopterioideae, including Cystopteris and Gymnocarpium; Athyrioideae, including Athyrium, Pseudocystopteris and Cornopteris; Diplazioideae including Allantodia.

    Plant Metallothionein type2 isolated from Brassica juncea was transformed into tobacco leaves via agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation. The transformation was confirmed by PCR and Western blot analysis. The transgenic plants differentiated in their growing phenotypes and in root elongation compared with those of wild types. The level of GSH in transformed and wild type of tobacco leaves did not show significant variation but increased extremely in the transformed leaves after 100 mmol·L-1 Cu2+ stress. The analysis of ATP hydrolysis showed that the P-ATPase activities were higher in the microsomal fraction prepared from transformed tobacco leaves than those from wild types. However, the V-ATPase activities were declined in comparison with the wild types.

    Inter-Simple Sequence Repeat(ISSR) molecular markers were used to analyze the genetic relationships of 14 Phalaenopsis cultivars with different origins and colors. Using 14 primers, we amplified 179 bands, of which 147 bands are polymorphic, and the average percentage of polymorphic bands was 82%. The range of genetic similarity was 0.734~0.936, suggesting that the substantial genetic divergence between some cultivars. ISSR markers represent a useful method for cultivar identification of Phalaenopsis, all 14 cultivars could be distinguished by these ISSR markers and 20 cultivar-specific ISSR bands were obtained for 10 of the 14 Phalaenopsis cultivars tested. Cluster analysis classified the 14 cultivars into 2 major groups. The result of UPGMA (unweighted pair-group method using arithmetic averages) clustering analysis was generally consistent with color, but there were some exceptions between clustering result and flower colors which may result from hybridization between cultivars. Article also discussed the instructional significance of experiment’s result to Phalaenopsis breeding.

    In S. cerevisiae, GYP can accelerate the intrinsic GTPase activity of YPT via the TBC active domain. In Arabidopsis, proteins containing similar TBC domain were called AtGAPs, but the biological function of AtGAPs, especially in stress response were not well known. There we isolated and characterized an Arabidposis T-DNA insertion mutant of RabGAP7. Phenotype analaysis suggested that the mutant was less sensitive to ABA and dehydration. Also it was found that the level of Rab7 and GPA1 on mRNA were lower in the wild-type than in rabgap7 plants by RT-PCR. So we conclude the RabGAP7 is involved the ABA response by activating the special G proteins.

    Based on demography of the age structure,survivorship curve and prediction from Leslie matrix model,the dynamic process of the Juglans mandshurica population at J. mandshurica and Fraxinus mandshurica forest, dominant J. mandshurica forest, mixed forest and mixed broadleaf-conifer forest, respectively, in Mt. Changbai of northeast China,was discussed and predicted. The results indicate that age structure of J. mandshurica population belongs to the type of decline, due to the characteristics of seedling and saplings with a small proportion of total population and high mortality rate at early stage, and that J. mandshurica population possibly underwent environmental screening at past 15-20 years. Leslie matrix model predicts basically that population of seedling and total numbers of J. mandshurica population, will have a decreasing trend in next 35 years. Although the population will be increased at dominant J. mandshurica forest, populations of J. mandshurica at the other three kinds of forests will be declined in the future. Therefore, it is essential to promote forest natural regeneration and to foster to seedlings and saplings as well as young J. mandshurica forest rationally.
