    Pennilabium J. J.Sm. is a newly recorded genus in China, including two species founded in Yunnan and Hainan. One of them is a new species of P.yunnanense. In this paper, floral morphology and pollina development in P.yunnanense were investigated. The column of a mature flower is short without column foot. Pollinarium unit is composed of two subglobose pollinia, stipe and viscidium. In the early stage, anther primordium is differentiated into a pair of lateral juxtaposed thecae. At the stage of microsporocyte, an incomplete sterile septum is formed adjacent to the inner anther wall between two thecae. During the microsporogenesis, the sterile septum becomes gradually degraded, resulting two pollinia with pore toward the inner anther wall disorganized. The hypodermal sporogenous cells produce 4-layered anther wall by periclinal divisions, including epidermis, endtothecium, middle layer, and a tapetum, which was of monocotyledonous type. Tapetum is uninuclear and secretory. Epidermis is not persistent, which becomes degraded as well as middle layer and tapetum. Fibrous thickenings occur on the entdothecium. Simultaneous cytokinesis results in tetrahedral and isobilateral microspore tetrads. Microspores undergo a mitosis leading to 2-celled pollen tetrads. Pollen tetrads arranged tightly and formed a subglobose pollinium in each theca. The embryological data on pollinia development of P.yunnanense could provide new insight for a better understanding of biodiversity and conservation in Orchidaceae.

    The experiment was conducted to study the changes of leaf stomatal morphological and photosynthetic characteristics of Populus spp. under different drought stress. Four poplar clones were taken as materials and investigated their photosynthetic and leaf stomatal morphological characteristics under drought stress. By ANOVA analysis, there were significant differences(P<0.01) for all traits among different source of variation in different treatment except stomatal apparatus length. With the reduction of soil relative water content, net photosynthetic rate, transpiration rate and stomatal conductance decreased, however, the intercellular CO2 concentration increased at first and then decreased. These results suggested that that drought-induced photosynthetic inhibition was due to stomatal limitation when the relative water content of soil was above 40%; However, the main limiting factor of photosynthetic inhibition of plants under severe drought stress was due to non-stomatal limitation. Drought decreased all traits of stomatal morphological characteristics. Using the method of subordinate function analysis, the drought-tolerance of Populus psedosimonii×P.nigra ‘baicheng-1’ was better than other clones.

    The experiment was conducted to study the stoichiometry characteristics of the plant leaves and their influencing factors for improving the ecological environment of the coastal zone. The Casuarina equisetifolia and the Ipomoea pes-caprae on the nearby beaches of 12 cities(counties) along the coast of Hainan Island were selected as research objects. The stoichiometry characteristics and differences of C, N and P in the leaves of two plants were analyzed to explore the different environmental factors by measuring the contents of carbon(C), nitrogen(N) and phosphorus(P) in leaves of C.equisetifolia and I.pes-caprae. And the effects of C, N, P content, C:N, C:P and N:P on the leaves of the two plants were conducted. These could find the main limiting factors affecting the growth of coastal zone plants. The results showed that the average contents of C, N and P in leaves of C.equisetifolia in Hainan Island were 399.06±20.29, 12.55±1.03, 12.55±1.03 g·kg-1, respectively. The ratios of C:N, C:P and N:P were 32.02±2.8, 420.65±121.27 and 13.10±3.47, respectively. The average contents of C, N and P in leaves of I.pes-caprae were 364.31±30.20, 12.84±1.96 and 2.06±0.64 g·kg-1, respectively. The ratios of C:N, C:P and N:P were 29.13±4.95, 198.74±79.41 and 6.92±2.69, respectively. The N content in leaves of C.equisetifolia was significantly correlated with annual mean temperature(AMT) and annual mean precipitation(AMP). The P content in leaves of C.equisetifolia was significantly positive correlated with AMP. The C:P and N:P in leaves of C.equisetifolia were significantly negatively correlated with AMP. There was a significantly positive correlation between C content in leaves of I.pes-caprae and AMT. The C:N of I.pes-caprae leaves showed a significantly negative correlation with AMP. The N content in leaves of C.equisetifolia was significantly negatively correlated with the SOC of the soil at the depth of 10-20 cm. C:N was significantly correlated with the SOC of the soil at the depth of 10-20 cm. C:P was significantly correlated with C:N of the soil at the depth of 0-10 cm. The C content in leaves of I.pes-caprae was significantly negatively correlated with the SOC of the soil at the depth of 10-20 cm. The P content were significantly correlated with the TN content, N:P of the soil at the depth of 0-10 cm, and the SOC of the soil at the depth of 10-20 cm. C:N was significantly correlated with C:N of the soil at the depth of 0-10 cm. C:P was significantly negatively correlated with TN content of the soil at the depth of 0-10 cm. C:P was significantly correlated with C:N of the soil at the depth of 0-10 cm. N:P was significantly negatively correlated with TN content of the soil at the depth of 0-10 cm. The results show that the carbon and nitrogen contents of the leaves are low in the coastal zone of Hainan Island, and N may be the main factor affecting plant growth in this area. At the same time, vegetation growth is affected by the AMT and AMP. Vegetation growth was less affected by soil nutrient content. The environment factors have differently effects on different plants.

    ZFPs are a class of transcription factors in plants that have a loop domain. In this study, 5 ZFP genes(named PtrZFP1-5) were identified from Populus trichocarpa, and their sequence characteristics and expression patterns were analyzed to understand the stress response function. The bioinformatics analysis of PtrZFP1-5 gene was carried out, and the expressions of 5 PtrZFP genes in root, stem and leaf of Populus under NaCl, PEG6000 and ABA treatment were further analyzed by qRT-PCR. The number of amino acid residues encoded by PtrZFP1-5 gene was 258-338 aa, the molecular weight of the encoded protein was 27.7-37.3 kDa,and the theoretical isoelectric point was 4.87-8.61. 5 PtrZFP genes were unevenly distributed on the three chromosomes of Populus genome. The results of qRT-PCR showed that the expression patterns of 5 PtrZFP genes in roots, stems and leaves of Populus were significantly different after treatment with 0.2M NaCl, 15%(w/v) PEG6000or 100μM ABA treatment. The expressions of PtrZFP1 were all up-regulated in three kinds of stresses. The expressions of PtrZFP2 were significantly inhibited in leaves after salt, osmotic and ABA treatment. The expression changed of PtrZFP3 in roots was most obvious under drought stress. In leaves and stems, the expression level did not change significantly at most of the time points of most stress. The PtrZFP4 gene also responded to drought stress in roots and stems. The expression of PtrZFP5 gene in leaves was significantly reduced after exposure to salt and ABA stress. PtrZFP1-5 genes can respond to at least one stress treatment in one organ, but the type and mechanism of the involved stress response may be different.

    Histone deacetylases plays an important role in plant abiotic stress responses. Histone deacetylase gene HDA902 was cloned from Populus trichocarpa by RT-PCR. The HDA902 gene was transformed into tobacco by Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated method. The tolerance of transgenic plants to cold stress was analyzed. The results showed that the expression of HDA902 in tobacco significantly improved the tolerance of transgenic lines to low temperature. The results of NBT and DAB staining showed that transgenic tobacco produced less reactive oxygen species than the wild type after cold treatment. The proline content in the leaves of transgenic plants were much higher than that of wild-type plants, whereas the MDA contents in the leaves of transgenic plants were much lower at low temperature. These results indicated that HDA902 was involved in the response to cold stress, and its overexpression enhanced the tolerance of transgenic plants to cold stress.

    In order to uncover the molecular mechanism of flower and grain development of buckwheat(Fagopyrum esculentum Moench.) with long pistil and long stamen mutant ‘lpls’ of a 1 788 bp long AP2 homologous cDNA sequence was cloned from F.esculentum Moench. and designated as FaesAP2B(GenBank accession number is MK290847.1). By sequence analysis, FaesAP2B gene contains a full Open Reading Frame with 1 380 bp long, and encodes an AP2/ERF family transcription factor consisting of 459 amino acid residues. The FaesAP2B transcription factor contains two highly conserved AP2 domains, with a nuclear localization signal region consisting of ten amino acid residues lying before the first AP2 domain. qPCR was performed to detect FaesAP2B gene expression in root, stem, leaf, perianth, stamen, pistil and juvenile fruit in four-day buckwheat mutant lpls, respectively. The FaesAP2B is expressed in both vegetative tissues and reproductive structures. However, the expression level of FaesAP2B in reproductive organs such as floral organs and fruits is significantly higher than that in vegetative tissues. In addition, the expression level of FaesAP2B in stamens is the highest among seven different organs(LSD, P<0.01). And the expression level of FaesAP2B in the perianth, pistil and four-day fruit was significantly higher than that in the vegetative organs such as roots, stems and leaves(LSD, P<0.01), but there was no significant difference in the expression of the gene between roots, stems and leaves. Our data suggested that FaesAP2B may be mainly involved in regulating flower and fruit development in the buckwheat mutant ‘lpls’.

    The peroxidasome biosynthetic gene(LpPEX7) of Lilium pumilum DC was cloned, and its open reading frame length is 957 bp, encoding 318 amino acids. The deduced amino acid sequence of LpPEX7 contains six WD40 conserved domains, through sequence alignment analysis of homologous proteins and evolutionary tree analysis, it was found that LpPEX7 had higher homology with some PEX7 from other plants. The expression of LpPEX7 was higher in seeds, leaves and bulbs, but lower in roots and flowers of L.pumilum. The expression of LpPEX7 changed under H2O2, NaCl and NaHCO3 stress conditions. Subsequently, the seeds germination of LpPEX7 over-expression Arabidopsis thaliana lines as earlier than that of wild seeds under the treatment of salinity and oxidative stress. These results show that the LpPEX7 gene has a certain response relationship with salinity and oxidative adversity. It provides a very important candidate gene for the study of salt-tolerant alkaline molecular mechanism of Lily.

Obtained clean data was analyzed including gene function annotation and differentially expressed genes(DEGs) screening was analyzed by bioinformatics methods. A total of 40.48 Gb clean data were obtained, approximately 90.00% of the clean reads were mapped to the E.ulmoides reference genome. It was found that 315 genes were significantly up-regulated and 269 genes were significantly down-regulated in the male flower buds at stamen differentiation stage. GO and KEGG analyses of DEGs showed the DEGs were enriched in development process, photoperiodism, hormone biosynthetic and signal transduction process, carbon metabolism and other processes and pathways associated with flower induction. The photoperiodic was perhaps the most important pathway for the floral induction of E.ulcommia, and the carbohydrates, plant hormone and other metabolic substances was required in the process of male floral bud differentiation. Importantly, the members of MADs-box including FLC, SOC1, AGL3 and AGL8 regulated the stamen formation of E.ulcommia. It provides a significant reference for studying the genes involved in the floral organs and molecular breeding of E.ulcommia.

    The BoPDIL1-2 gene was isolated from the stigma of ornamental kale(Brassica oleracea var. acephala) S13-bS13-b homozygotes by RT-PCR and RACE. The BoPDIL1-2 coding region sequence was inserted into the prokaryotic expression vector pET-14b and transformed into the E.coli cell for purification.We prepared the polyclonal antibodies against recombinant BoPDIL1-2 through immune mouse. The expression level of BoPDIL1-2 in the various tissue anddifferent developmental stigmas were detected by Western blot. The deduced amino acid sequence of BoPDIL1-2 shared 97.3% and 85.5% identity with Brassica napus BnPDIL1-2 and Arabidopsis thaliana AtPDIL1-2, respectively. SDS-PAGE results showed that the recombinant BoPDIL1-2 fusion protein about 58 kDa was induced by IPTG.Western blot results revealed BoPDIL1-2 wasspecifically expressed inthe stigma,the expression of BoPDIL1-2 was lower in the early stage of stigma, while it was higher in the stigma at theflowering stage.

    In order to establish a molecular identification technique of DNA barcoding for Rubus, and screening universal barcode sequences suitable for Rubus. With GenBank data we analyzed the genetic variation, barcoding gap and NJ consensus tree of six DNA barcoding sequences that contain ITS, ITS2, matK, rbcL, trnH-psbA and trnL-trnF. The intraspecific variation and interspecies variation of trnH-psbA, matK, rbcL and rtnL-trnF were different, and the variation resolutions were 97.32%, 83.33%, 79.07% and 64.95%, respectively. And trnH-psbA, matK, rbcL and rtnL-trnF had obvious barcoding gap; NJ consistent tree showed that matK had the highest proportion of solopathogenicity(67%), and then trnH-psbA(64%), rtnL-trnF(43%), rbcL(30%). The intraspecific variation and interspecies of matK and trnH-psbA sequences for Rubus are different, which can distinguish different species well with great identification potential. It is recommended to use matK and trnH-psbA as the core barcode sequences identified for Rubus, and rtnL-trnF and rbcL are used as auxiliary barcode sequences.
