    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.

    The seeds of 15 species (33 samples) of the genus Illicium Linn. were observed under light microscope and scanning electron microscope, and described. The results indicate that Illicium seeds are obovoid, rarely ellipsoid or ovoid, flattened. Exotesta is stone-hard, mesotesta coriaceous, endotesta membranaceous. Exotesta is yellowish, egg-yellow to orange-brown with invariably smooth and lucidly ceraceous layer, without testa ornaments found. Seed has a raised longitudinal ridge (raphe) at the ventral surface extending from the hilum to the top. Hilum locates at the bottom, near ventral surface of seed, or at the bottom of seed, ovate or elliptic, depressed. Embryo minute, endosperm copious, oily. The most features of seed surfaces among the species of Illicium are similar and constant, which supports that the genus should be relatively natural monophyletic group.

    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 (GA4), 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 GA4 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 GA4, while the IAA content was relatively low compared with that of GA4 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 GA4/iPA and GA4/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.

    This research focused on three desert halophyte species,i.e., H. ammodendron (C.A.Mey.) Bge., S. physophora Pall.,and S. nitraria Pall. under solution culture,and the differences of their root morphology and activity in the seedling stage under varying salt concentration conditions were studied. The results show that a certain salt concentration can promote the development of these three halophytes, but rather high salt concentration will restrain their growth,especially inhibit the roots development. Under the same salt concentration condition, S. nitraria Pall. grows fast and accumulates the largest amount of biomass. Under relatively lower salt concentration,the length of axial root and the total length of roots of these three halophyte species are all increased, comparing to the control samples, S. physophora Pall. occupies the top place of roots growth,but high salt concentration will restrain the increase of total root length, among them,the restraining intensity to S. physophora Pall. is lighter than to H. ammodendron (C.A.Mey.) Bge. and S. nitraria Pall. The salinity does not bring distinct influence on the average diameter of roots of these three plant species,but trends to reduce the size. Under the solution culture conditions,the upper, middle and lower parts of the axial root of H. ammodendron (C.A.Mey.) Bge. and S. physophora Pall. are rather equally distributed,but the middle part of S. nitraria Pall. roots is significantly increased than the upper and lower parts, salt concentration does not bring marked impact on the roots spatial distribution of each species. Differences between root hair morphological characteristics at different salt concentration were tested,but no significant differences were found. Average root length and density was found to change significantly among the three species. Our research indicates that S. physophora Pall. has the highest drought-resistant and infertile-resistant among three desert halophytes. The experimental results show that the saline tolerance capacity of H. ammodendron (C.A.Mey.) Bge. is lower than the other two species,and the capacity of S. physophora Pall. is ranked at the top place.

    Camellia japonica L., a kind of rare flowers in China, is abundant in variety and difficult to classify and identify systematically. In order to find a technique for the classification and identification of Camellia japonica L. in DNA level and improve its molecular biological research, the optimal condition of DNA extraction and RAPD (Randomly Amplified Polymorphic DNA) amplification system were specially studied. In the experiment, the genomic DNA obtained from leaves by the method of modified CTAB had a fine purity with OD260/OD230 value about 1.90~2.0 and OD260/OD280 value about 1.80~1.83, a high yield with 150~200 μg·g-1, and a good integrity of fragments above 20 kb. For the RAPD amplifying conditions of Camellia japonica L., the perfect reaction system in a 20 μL volume was considered to be 100 ng template DNA, 1× Buffer, 1.2 mmol·L-1 Mg2+, 125 μmol·L-1 dNTP (each), 0.5 μmol·L-1 primer and 1 U Taq DNA polymerases. The anneal temperature was about 37℃, being adjusted lightly according to the different arbitrary primers. Presuming the phenolic compounds were excessive in leaves of Camellia japonica L., which needs to increase the quantity of β-Mercaptoethanol (4%) and add 2% PVP (Polyvinylpyrrolidone) in the DNA extraction solution to inhibit the oxidation of the phenolic compounds ultimately. It was also recommended that DNA extraction without 10% CTAB could still obtain the DNA with high purity and yield, moreover, the method was easy and steady. To get the good identical results in repeating experiments of RAPD amplification, it also should be noticed that each condition and step must be kept as consistent as possible, and make sure each reagent of reaction comes from the same source with the same concentration.

    Turf media were respectively compounded by loam, clay soil, sand and waste crumb rubber with four different sizes as soil amendment, and ecological responses of turfgrass were investigated. Analysis on synthetical effect of all ecological indices showed that in soil compounded media, compounded medium with 0.5~1 mm and 4~6 mm crumb rubber was better than 1~2 mm and 2~4 mm. However, compounded medium with 1~2 mm crumb rubber achieved better results in clay soil compounded media. Moreover, in sand compounded media, 1~2 mm and 2~4 mm crumb rubber was better than 0.5~1 mm and 4~6 mm. By comparison, from the angle of turfgrass growth, compounded medium by sand and waste crumb rubber as soil amendment has better applied prospect.

    Plant diversity of natural grassland in hilly region of Loess Plateau in Gansu eastern was studied. 16 communities involved in 3 vegetation typies. Stipa bungeana steppe, secondary ruderal steppe and ruderal meadow steppe was determined according to species dominance index as well as the quadrats data of 30 vegetation sites. They can be divided into forbid grazing grassland, over grazing grassland and moderate grazing grassland. The Shannon-wiener index and Simpson index showed a trend of ruderal meadow steppe>Stepa bungeana steppe>secondary ruderal steppe, and moderate grazing grassland>forbid grazing grassland>over grazing grassland. Grazing degree may be the key factor that influences the diversity of natural communities in this region. It is a possible result of grazing disturbance that the diversity index decrease by the altitude heightens and precipitation increase. Correlation analysis showed that the Shannon-wiener index and Simpson index are significantly positively correlated with Shannon evenness index and Simpson evenness index, and are significantly negatively correlated with the biomass.

    Based on investigation and statistical analysis, the geographical elements of seed plant in Pan’an County, Zhejiang Province were studied in the present paper. There are 1 298 species of wild seed plants (including varieties) belonging to 627 genera, 144 families in Pan’an County. There are 14 distribution area types and 15 sub-types at genus level, and the flora is related with every part of the world, especially closely related with North America and Japan. The genera of tropical distribution account for 36.20% of overall genera, the genera of temperate distribution account for 51.20% of overall genera, and endemic to China distribution for 1.91%, showing that the region should belong to the East Asia zone and represent to the feature of transition from warm temperate to subtropics area-type. At last, two-dimensional scatter plot of principal coordinates analysis (PCO) and clustering tree of between-groups linkage on the basis of the floristic spectrum (FS) of Pan’an and other twenty-one seed plant flora are drown. The result shows that the combining analysis of the two methods can objectively reflect the similarities of different flora.
