    This paper attempted to illustrate the mechanisms of callus formation of plant leaf. The theory was proposed that the acid material in the culture medium maintained the plant leaf in the acid environment, and this led to fast degradation of cell wall, breaking away of protoplast from the cell wall. These free protoplasts will aggregation into callus, without fixed organization and functions and being ready to recombine or rebuild for the further differentiation. The acid condition in the culture medium played the most important role in the dedifferentiation of leaves and in the formation of callus, during this course plant cell wall was presumed to serve as signal carrier controlling the cell to finish the normal cell's cycle, not only as the inactive coat of cells.

    The family Trimeniaceae consists of two genera, five species. Morphological studies indicated that Trimeniaceae possesses many primitive characters. Recent phylogenetic analyses of multiple molecular data sets indicate that Trimeniaceae is one of the basal taxa of the extant angiosperms. But the systematic position of Trimeniaceae is in dispute. The origin and radiation of angiosperms (flowering plants) have long been hot issues attracting botanical systematists. This paper reviews the research history and recent advances related to this family.

    There are 47 genera and 161 species of Gramineae except the cultivated species in the area of the Karakorum and Kunlun Mountains. The results of research on the distribution of the genera and species of Gramineae in the Karakorum and KunlunMountains show that (1) The Gramineae mainly contains elements of North Temperate, rich Old Word Temperate and other Temperate. It is obvious that the floristic nature of Gramineae in the Karakorum and Kunlun Mountains is the North Temperate;(2) All Pantropic genera can stretch to the Temperate Zone in this region, which all parts of the Pantropic type are the Temperate nature to a certain degree. For example, Erianthus ravennae from mediterranean to the Karakorum and KunlunMountains through the Central Asia;(3) As most genera of Grasses are the type of Temperate and the Frigid Zone, they have distinct floristic characteristics of mountainous and plateau flora such as Orinus, Alopecurus, Elymus, Trisetum, Littledalea, Elytrigia, Stephanachne and Paracolpodium etc. All of these indicate adaptive phenomenon of alpine specialization and cold-xerophilization on Grasses in this area;(4) Endemic genus of Gramineae is absent due to its nature and history and the endemic species are also rare in the Karakorum and Kunlun Mountains. Most of the genera with one or fewer species have originated from its relative and widespread genera, such as Ptilagrostis from Stipa, Timouria from Achnatherum, and so on;(5) Flora of the Karakorum and KunlunMountains is most closely related to the flora of Tibet, and is also extensively to its adjacent areas.

    Evergreen broadleaved forest dominated by Castanopsis fargesii is widely distributed in red and yellow soils on the hills and mountains of eastern central subtropics below 700 m above sea level in Guangxi, it is a most representative zonal community type of this region, and it also fragmentally occurs in some mountainous areas of south subtropics and north tropics. Frequent 13 Associations in Guangxi are described in this paper, simple illustration of their geographical distribution, habitat property and species composition is given. All of these materials may be used for basis of their conservation and scientific management.
