Latin American Blackberries Biology: Rubus bogotensis Kunth and Rubus acanthophyllos Focke Vol 2

Latin American Blackberries Biology: Rubus bogotensis Kunth and Rubus acanthophyllos Focke Vol 2 by Fernando Ramírez
English | PDF EPUB (True) | 2024 | 154 Pages | ISBN : 3031589262 | 42.6 MB

This book explores two Rubus species from South America. It will address the species Rubus bogotensis Kunth and Rubus acanthophyllos Focke. It addresses aspects, such as origin, phenology, propagation, floral and fruit morphology, arthropod visitors, pollination, breeding, morphological diversity, and genetic diversity. It includes new unpublished data and results about plant phenology, flowering, insect visitors, fruit length-weight relationships, and fruit and pyrene morphology. This work includes an in-depth review of the most recently published information on the topic. The Rubus species studies are underutilized crops from Latin America. Furthermore, these species could be used in breeding programs for improvement. They can also be hybridized with other Rubus species to obtain better-quality hybrids. This book contains numerous photographs selected by the author to provide the reader with detailed information about the plant´s morphological features and arthropod visitors.

Stem Surface Area in Modeling of Forest Stands

Stem Surface Area in Modeling of Forest Stands by Vladimir L. Gavrikov
English | PDF (True) | 2017 | 107 Pages | ISBN : 3319524488 | 2.1 MB

This book reveals the benefits of describing and modeling trees as the combined surface areas of their stems, and provides a concise overview of the fundamental grounds for adopting such an approach. Anatomically speaking, trees are largely thin sheaths of living cells and it is this understanding that has sparked growing interest in the study of stem surface areas in trees and stands. An overview of publications on analytical methods for the dynamics and structure of forest stands based on stem surface area is also provided.

The Structure and Function of Plastids

The Structure and Function of Plastids by Robert R. Wise, J. Kenneth Hoober
English | PDF | 2006 | 591 Pages | ISBN : 1402040601 | 34.5 MB

This volume provides a comprehensive look at the biology of plastids, the multifunctional biosynthetic factories that are unique to plants and algae. Fifty-six international experts have contributed 28 chapters that cover all aspects of this large and diverse family of plant and algal organelles. The book is divided into five sections: (I): Plastid Origin and Development; (II): The Plastid Genome and Its Interaction with the Nuclear Genome; (III): Photosynthetic Metabolism in Plastids; (IV): Non-Photosynthetic Metabolism in Plastids; (V): Plastid Differentiation and Response to Environmental Factors. Each chapter includes an integrated view of plant biology from the standpoint of the plastid.
