By Altafhusain Nadaf,Rahul Zanan

Indian screw pine relations Pandanaceae represents 3 genera, within which genus Pandanus and Benstonea are disbursed in hotspots in India – the Western Ghats and the Northeast Himalayan sector. For the 1st time, Indian Pandanaceae has been assessed for its taxonomic prestige and phylogenetic dating. The huge survey by means of the authors ended in the invention of 3 new Pandanus species (two from the Western Ghats and one from the Northeast Himalaya). the current taxonomic revision proven overall variety of Pandanus species to fourteen which are allotted within the Southern India (9 species) and Northeast Himalayan quarter (5 species). Genus Benstonea is represented via species, one from Southern India and one other species universal to either areas. an in depth species id key's given besides conservation prestige of every species following IUCN purple record different types and standards (2001). The learn published that, out of sixteen Pandanus and Benstonea species, six species are less than threatened categories.

In contemporary years, a chloroplast DNA-based molecular phylogenetic technique has been to appreciate the evolutionary dating one of the plant species. The interrelationship one of the 14 Pandanus species at infrageneric point has been labored out utilizing this procedure, which has resulted in the rearrangement of a few species to the subgenera proposed through Stone (1974). furthermore, the shut courting among Pandanus and Benstonea has been proven and the interrelationship of Indian Pandanus genus in worldwide context is given. This booklet additionally describes the industrial significance of every Pandanus species.

Eine Entdeckungsreise durch Gene, Genome und Verwandtschaften

Ist unsere Persönlichkeit ererbt oder geschaffen? was once verrät die Erbsubstanz DNA über die Geschichte des Menschen? Welche Bedeutung hat das Klonschaf Dolly? Und werden wir schon bald Designerbabys nach Wunsch bestellen?

In 50 klaren und unterhaltsamen Essays destilliert Mark Henderson, Wissenschaftsredakteur der Times, die zentralen Konzepte der noch jungen Wissenschaft Genetik heraus. Indem er den Bogen von Darwins Theorie der Evolution und Mendels Kreuzungsexperimenten bis zu den jüngsten, oft kontroversen, wissenschaftlichen Fortschritten dieser Disziplin schlägt, zeigt er auf, wie sehr die Kenntnis der genetischen Maschinerie unser Verständnis vom Leben auf der Erde verändert hat.

Voller Beispiele aus dem Alltag, erhellender Zitate und anschaulicher grafischer Darstellungen entfaltet 50 Schlüsselideen Genetik ein breites landscape. Das Buch

  • vermittelt ein Bild von der Entstehung und Entwicklung des Lebens, indem es zunächst die Geheimnisse der Chromosomen und der DNA wie auch des menschlichen Genoms aufdeckt

By Daniela Bleichmar

Between 1777 and 1816, botanical expeditions crisscrossed the giant Spanish empire in an formidable undertaking to survey the vegetation of a lot of the Americas, the Caribbean, and the Philippines. whereas those voyages produced written texts and compiled collections of specimens, they committed an overpowering share in their assets and effort to the production of visible fabrics. ecu and American naturalists and artists collaborated to fabricate a excellent overall of greater than 12,000 botanical illustrations. but those photos have remained mostly overlooked—until now.

In this lavishly illustrated quantity, Daniela Bleichmar supplies this archive its due, discovering in those botanical pictures a window into the worlds of Enlightenment technology, visible tradition, and empire. via cutting edge interdisciplinary scholarship that bridges the histories of technological know-how, visible tradition, and the Hispanic international, Bleichmar makes use of those pictures to track comparable histories: the little-known background of medical expeditions within the Hispanic Enlightenment and the historical past of visible facts in either technology and management within the early glossy Spanish empire. As Bleichmar indicates, within the Spanish empire visible epistemology operated not just in medical contexts but additionally as a part of an imperial gear that had a customary culture of deploying visible facts for administrative purposes.
