    The peristome morphology of 16 species of the family Pottiaceae was observed by scanning electron microscope (SEM). The results show that the peristomes of these species are similar. They are haplolepideae. Peristome teeth are 1-3 sinistrorse circles or erect, basal membrane is present and densely covered with small papillae. While based on the differences of shape and rotation of peristome teeth and characteristics of basal membrane, three styles of peristome can be distinguished. It shows the hereditary differentiation of genus and species. This paper also discusses the adaptation of peristome morphology to the xerophytic environment.

    The morphological features and anatomical structures of Eremurus altaicus(Pall.) Stev. were studied by the methods of traditional paraffin wax sections. The results showed: The root system of E.altaicus was composed of storage and absorbing roots with different anotomic structures and physiological functions, which was a result of ecological adaptation of the ephemeroid plant to its habit of fast growth and long-term annual dormancy; It was of lots of xerophyte characteristics, such as significant cortex and pith in root, cuticle on epidermis of leaf and stem, mass fundamental tissue in stem, ring-shaped palisade tissue, and highly-developed water-storage tissue, which suggested that E.altaicus might originate from arid habitat in early time although it is a mesophyte distributed in subalpine meadow; Two kinds of xylems in roots of the plant were found, xylem in storage root was polyarch, but it in absorbing root was diarch or penarch. There was a layer of obvious stripe-like casparian strips along the transverse walls and radial walls on endodermis cells. The diamorphism of xylem and stripe-like casparian strips on endodermis cells suggested that Eremurus might be special taxa among the plant systematic tree.

    This article calculated the percentages of different fruit types of total angiosperms (5810 species, 28 varieties) and their life forms (trees, shrubs, herbs and lianas) distributed in Tibet and southeastern Tibet. The results showed that in Tibet capsule is the dominant fruit type(37.74%), followed by achene, nut and berry. The percentage of dry fruits is far bigger than that of fleshy fruits in Tibet. There are great variations in 4 life forms in fruit type spectrum. Drupe is dominant in tree, berry in liana, achene in shrub, and capsule in herb. Tree possesses the greatest percentage of fleshy fruit in 4 life forms, followed by liana, shrub and herb. In southeastern Tibet, capsule is also the dominant fruit type (37.54%), followed by achene, berry, drupe, nut and caryopsis. The larger differences occur among the percentages of various fruit types.Drupe is dominant in tree, berry in liana, capsule in shrub and in herb. In the 4 life forms tree possesses the largest percentage of fleshy fruits followed by liana, shrub and herb. The percentage of fleshy fruits is higher in southeastern Tibet than in the whole Tibet, and on the contrary, dry fruits is not. Such fruit characteristics are adapted to their environment and are results of long-term evolution. This study can help us in understanding a long term adaptation and evolution of fruits to their ecological environment.

    Under enhanced UV-B radiation, 3-year-old seedlings of Larix gmelinii were chose as target to study the impact of exogenous nitric oxide on photosynthetic pigments (Chl a, Chl b and Car) and chlorophyll fluorescence. The results of variance analysis showed 0.5 mmol·L-1 sodium nitroprusside (SNP), a NO donor, have significant impact on nursery stocks of L.gmelinii under enhanced UV-B radiation stress. 0.5 mmol·L-1 SNP can significantly inhibited the apparent decline in photosynthetic pigments, Fv/Fm, ΦPSⅡ,Fv′/Fm′ and qP, and the obvious increase in chl a/chl b, Fo and NPQ after supplement UV-B radiation. All these results indicated that exogenous nitric oxide could reduce the physical damage of photosynthetic reaction centers in seedlings of L.gmelinii under UV-B radiation stress, and enhancement of environmental adaptability of the seedling to supplementary UV-B radiation stress.

    The bioinformatics analysis of AtZW10 protein was performed by using different approaches. The results showed that the Arabidopsis thaliana AtZW10 protein is much conserved during the evolution of high eukaryotes. In AtZW0 protein, there is a similar conserved region to the centromere/kinetochorebinding protein ZW10. Moreover, the high similarity was found between AtZW0 and the Drosophila DmZW10 protein. AtZW10 was considered to be a hydrophilic protein by hydrophobicity analysis, and no obvious transmembrane domains. Prediction results also indicated that AtZW10 is likely to be located in the nucleus and cytoplasm. In order to further determine the subcellular localization of AtZW10, the full-length of AtZW10 gene was amplified by PCR using Arabidopsis cDNA as a template, and the binary vectors consisting of AtZW10 fused with the yellow (green) fluorescent protein (YFP/GFP) coding sequence were further constructed. The recombinant vectors were transformed into wild-type Arabidopsis protoplasts of mesophyll cells and Nicotiana benthamiana epidermal cells, respectively. Subsequently, the analyses on the distribution of the fusion proteins suggest that AtZW10 is an nucleoplasm positioning protein, and is mainly distributed in the nucleus, consistent with the conclusions of bioinformatics analysis. The molecular features and the subcellular localization of AtZW10 were analyzed in the present study, which might provide a basis for studying the function of AtZW10 gene in the future.

    Four-week-old wild-type Arabidopsis seedlings (Columbia-0) was treated using different doses of UV-B radiation, the protein in the mesophyll cells was extracted using acetone precipitation and TCA-acetone, then Arabidopsis mesophyllcellular protein content and composition of the different intensity of UV-B radiation response were analyzed. The results showed that comparing two methods, the protein content of the TCA-acetone extract is relatively higher, which was more suitable for the analysis of enhanced UV-B radiation on Arabidopsis mesophyll cell protein; The changes of protein contents by two extraction methods showed the same trend, along with the increasing of UV-B radiation dose, the protein content increased first and then reduced, B2 group reached a maximum. In addition, the number of protein bands and expression has taken place significant change, the most obvious changes were also in the middle dose treatment group (B2), both new bands and disappearance bands. This may be due to the Arabidopsis thaliana can activate some of its own resistance gene expressions and induce resistance protein by low doses of UV-B radiation, and thus resist the damage of UV-B; however, when subjected to high doses of UV-B radiation, damage their own protein synthesis pathway, and affect protein synthesis.

    The physiological and ecological characteristics of the endangered Sinocalycanthus chinensis seedlings with the treatments of simulated acid rain of pH2.5, pH3.5, pH4.5 and pH5.6 (control) were determined and analyzed. The results showed that, in all treatments, the day variation of net photosynthetic rate of S.chinensis was a curve with one peak in July. The mean daily net photosynthetic rate reduced with the increasing of the acidity with significant differences among different treatments. The maximum net photosynthetic rate, light saturation point and the relative chlorophyll content decreased gradually with the increasing of the acidity, while the dark respiration rate and the light compensation point increased gradually with the increasing of the acidity. The apparent quantum yields in the treatments of pH2.5 and pH3.5 were lower that the control, while that in the treatment of pH4.5 was higher than the control. Fv/Fm and Fv/Fo reduced with the increasing of the acidity. The activity of peroxidase and superoxide dismutase, the content of malonydialdehyde and the membrane permeability significantly increased with the increasing of the acidity. The results suggested that simulated acid rain could reduce the photosynthetic capacity and had detrimental effect on the physiological traits of S.chinensis.

    The geographical distribution and natural habitats, as well as the population size and the age structure of the population of Keteleeria evelyniana var. pendula in Huaning County, Yunnan Province were studied in this paper, and the biological characteristics, such as the morphological features, the development rule of the growth and its spreading and germination of seeds were well knew. It was concluded that K.evelyniana var. pendula was mainly distributed in the mountain areas near villages, such as Pingdi and Mada in Huaning County; the existing groups of this variety were the small populations, the clustering populations were characterized by the illogical age structure, and the populations were in a relatively unsteady stage. Although the characteristics of the seed wing were good for spreading over long distances, the seed yield was extremely low and the transformation of seeds to seedling is difficult. Therefore, the sexual reproduction was suffocated and the life history tended to break, which is an important one of the internal reasons that results in its being endangered condition at last. Furthermore, the survival of this species is severely threatened by the natural habitats being seriously damaged and the adults being excessively excavated, which is the main external reasons that cause the dramatical decreasing of the individuals in the wild population. The effective measures of protection and utilization were proposed, based on the endangered mechanism of K.evelyniana var. pendula.

    In order to clarify new fungal activator protein induced resistance in rice and its physiological mechanism, changes of peroxidase (POD), polyphenol oxidase (POD), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) activities and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) content in rice seedlings were determined at various time points after activator protein treatment. The results showed that activator protein could induce resistance in rice against blast fungus and bacterial blight. The resistance induced by activate protein at the concentration of 1-6 μg·mL-1 against blast fungus and bacterial blight was 45.2%-71.4% and 47.6%-66.3%, respectively, and the best results were achieved at the concentration of 6 μg·mL-1 activate protein. Compared with control group, the activities of POD, PPO and SOD and hydrogen peroxide content in rice seedlings were increased with different levels, but CAT activities inhibited 3-15 d after the rice seedlings treated with the concentration of 2 μg·mL-1 activator protein. These findings showed that activator protein-induced resistance in rice was closely related to active oxygen metabolism.

    For optimizing ISSR-PCR reaction system of Brassica campestris L. var. rosularis, single factor gradient and orthogonal design experiments were conducted. The main factors affecting ISSR-PCR amplification i.e. suitable concentration of primer, dNTP, Mg2+ and Taq DNA polymerase were studied. Furthermore, the annealing temperature and cycling numbers were optimized on the base of the above tests. An ideally ISSR-PCR reaction system was established, namely 20 μL reaction system containing template DNA 30 ng, 0.50 μmol·L-1 primer, 0.25 mmol·L-1 dNTP, 1 mmol·L-1 Mg2+ and Taq DNA polymerase 1.0 U. The optimal PCR amplification program was:3 min at 94℃ for predenaturation, followed by 35 cycles of 30 sec at 94℃ for denaturation, 1 min at 50℃ for annealing, 90 sec at 72℃ for extension, finally extension at 72℃ for 7 min and holding the samples at 4℃. This optimized ISSR-PCR reaction system would provide the basis for the analysis of germplasm classification and identification in B.campestris.

    Sexual propagule bank is of great importance for persistence of plant populations. To this day, no direct experiment proof of long-term persistent spore bank of bryophytes in peatlands was reported. In Hani Peatland of the Changbai Mountains, a 50 cm deep peat core was drilled and burial time of spores in peat layers was estimated by larch dating method. After the spores of Sphagnum capillifolium being extracted from the peat layer by layer, the spores were cultivated to investigate the effect of burial time on spore germination rate. The results showed that, with the increase of burial time, the germination rate of Sphagnum spores decreased exponentially. The results indicated that there was a long-term persistent spore bank in peatlands since spores of S.capillifolium still have the potential to germinate after 112 years of burial. According to our calculation, the maximum longevity in spores of S.capillifolium could be up to 396.4 years.

    The content of active constituents in Chinese herbal medicine is a key indicator for judging their qualities. In this study, the methods were established for analyzing total and three major flavonoids in Mosla chinensis, respectively, and the differences of the flavonoid contents in different tissues were also compared, which will favour the exploitation of the flavonoids in M.chinensis. The results showed that the optimized spectrophotometry for the determination of total flavonoid content was specific and stable, and the HPLC method for the analysis of luteolin, apigenin and negletein presented a good linear relationship (r>0.999) in the range of the determination and the recovery ranges were 98.77%~102.13% with less than 5% RSDs. The study also found that the content of total flavonoids in different parts of M.chinensis from high to low was bud>tip>stem>root, and the total flavonoid content in M.chinensis from Jiangxi was higher than that from Zhejiang. These prompt that genunie medicinal materials should be selected for the industrial production of the flavonoids from M.chinensis as more as possible, and the root and the lower end of stem may be considered to discard, so as to improve the extraction efficiency and increase economic benefits. In brief, the developed methods are accurate and steady for detecting total and three major flavonoids in M.chinensis, and we also confirmed total flavonoids were mainly enriched in and near the bud of M.chinensis, which would provide a theoretical basis and scientific guidance for further exploiting the resources in M.chinensis.
