  • Abstract ( 1844 ) HTML ( 1691 ) PDF (330KB) ( 1691 )    
  • The study aimed to investigate the carbohydrate changes during flower induction of litchi (Litchichinensis Sonn. ) trees. In‘Guiwei’litchi, 95.8% terminal shoots flowered on trees of early (Oct.5) terminal flushing whereas only 18.0 % on trees of late (Nov.15) flushing. Over 99 % of terminal shoots in ‘Nuomici’and‘Feizixiao’litchi trees , irrespective of flushing early or late (from Oct.1 to Nov.5) , formed flower panicles. The contents of soluble sugars and starch in roots (1 cm in diameter) , trunks (5-8 cm in diameter) , large branches (3-5 cm in diameter) , small branches (1 cm in diameter) , terminal autumnal shoots and leaves were investigated over the period from November to January. Results showed that the concentration of soluble sugars increased from November to December and then decreased in January, while the starch concentration increased progressively , especially in the upper parts of the canopy. Starch concentrations in the heavy flowering trees were highest in small branches and decreased acropetally and basipetally , whereas the concentrations of soluble sugars were highest in the terminal shoots. Starch concentration in the leaves was higher than that in the terminal shoots of the light flowering trees. It is suggested that carbohydrate distribution pattern may serve as an indication for the judging of the floral induction effect in litchi .

  • Changes of calcium and potassium contents in the ovary or fruitlet and fruit different part (rind andpulp) from ovary development before full bloom to fruit maturation for harvest of citrus i1e. parthenocarpic ‘Guo-qing 1’(Citrus unshiu Marc. ) and self-pollinated ‘Huanong Bendizao’ ( C.reticulata Blanco) were investigated. The results showed as follows : 1) Calcium contents in the ovary (fruitlet) of ‘Guoqing 1’ (GQ1) were at high levels before and at full bloom , and then decreased. But its potassium contents were relatively low before and at full bloom , thereafter increased. 2) Calcium contents in‘Huanong Bendizao’ (HB) were at low levels before full bloom , and presented an increasing trend after full bloom. While its potassium contents were comparatively high before and at full bloom , and then declined. 3) Dynamics of calcium in the pulp of ‘GQ1’and‘HB’were all declining from 65 days after full bloom (DAFB) , while calcium content in rind of ‘GQ1’signifi2
    cantly rose at 80 DAFB , that of‘HB’sharply increased at 125 DAFB too , since then kept at high levels until maturation for harvest . 4) Potassium contents in rind and pulp in both of ‘GQ1’and ‘HB’were similarly declining during fruit development .

  • Acta Horticulturae Sinica. 2004, 31(1): 11-15.
  • Abstract ( 1482 ) HTML ( 1249 ) PDF (267KB) ( 1249 )    
  • To investigate the influences of mowing on the fruit tree growth and nutrient competition in a sod culture system, and to elucidate the corresponding mechanisms, Citrus sinensis and Stylosanthes gracilis were grown in rhizoboxes as tested plants. The results showed that mowing significantly alleviated the grass competition for phosphorus , and promoted the citrus plant growth , in a low P soil . Mechanism analysis indicated that mowing
    strongly inhibited the grass root growth , significantly decreased the total root length, and also changed the root system distribution, which resulted in a significant decrease in plant P content and P uptake. For citrus plants,the total root length and apparent P uptake rate of root were increased , P content and P uptake were significantly enhanced, to a comparable level with fertilized plants. It is suggested that mowing changed the competition status between fruit tree and grass through the influence on root system, and the root distribution pattern may play a important role in the nutrient competition.

  • Acta Horticulturae Sinica. 2004, 31(1): 16-20.
  • Abstract ( 1630 ) HTML ( 1178 ) PDF (219KB) ( 1178 )    
  • Two apple species with different drought resistance were exposed to a polyethylene glycol-induced water deficit . The concentration of jasmonic acid (JA) in roots , leaves and xylem sap were measured by gas chromatograph. Sensitive increases of JA in roots , leaves or xylem sap were showed in two species. A significant logarithm correlation existed between leaf stomatal resistance and concentration of JA in xylem sap or roots. This suggest that JA in xylem sap may be the signal responsible for communication between roots and shoots in apple trees under water stress.

  • Acta Horticulturae Sinica. 2004, 31(1): 21-24.
  • Abstract ( 1589 ) HTML ( 1292 ) PDF (147KB) ( 1292 )    
  • The ultrastructure of two kinds of apricot ( Prunus armeniaca L. ) ovule by ice nucleation active (INA) bacteria and low temperature was investigated with transmission electron microscopy. The results showed that the ultrastructure of ovule was influenced by the INA bacteria. (1) The plasmolysis phenomenon occurred in the nucellus cells, a great lot of vesicle structures existed in the cytoplasm. The structures of mitochondrion was entirely damaged and turned transparent . Furthermore there were multi2membrane inclusions with concentric circles in some nucellus cells. (2) The ectoblast nuclear membrane of ovum in embryo-sac was inflated. The nuclear membrane was disintegrated partly and number of organelles in cytoplasm decreased. Therefore , the ovule could not develop normally , which interfered the spermatiation and led to the reduction in apricot yield or even no outputat all. In addition, compared with the treatment of only low temperature , the ovule ultrastructure by the treatment of both low temperature and INA bacteria inoculation were devastated more seriously. Therefore , INA bacteria was one important factor to aggravate frost injury to apricot flowers.

  • Abstract ( 1588 ) HTML ( 1789 ) PDF (232KB) ( 1789 )    
  • Experiments were conducted about tissue culture systems and cryopreservation on papaya ( Carica papaya L.) . The cluster buds were subcultured on the proliferation medium containing 0.5 mg/ L BA , 0.1 mg/ L
    NAA and 1.0 mg/ L GA3. The procedure of cryopreservation was studied using the shoot tips as materials. In vitro, the shoot tips of papaya about 3-5 cm in length were precultured for 3 days at 25 ℃on MS medium supplemented
    with 5 %DMSO. Shoot tips about 1.5-2.5 mm in length with one or two leaf primordiumwere loaded in a solution containing 60 % PVS2 for 40-50 min at room temperature. The shoot2tips were sufficiently dehydrated with a highly concentrated vitrification solution (PVS2) for 40 min at 0 ℃. After changing the solution with fresh PVS2 , the shoots were immersed into liquid nitrogen directly and conservated for 24 hour. After rapidly thawing in a water
    bath at 40 ℃, the shoot tips were washed twice with 1.2 mol/ L sucrose solution and transferred on the same MS medium as the previous one. Survival rates of shoot tips was 53.7 % , and regrowth rate reached 52.6 %. Almost
    all the shoot tips formed roots on hormone2free solidified MS medium and were successfully transferred to soil in pots. The plantlets could normally root and survive after transplantion.

  • Abstract ( 1984 ) HTML ( 1235 ) PDF (160KB) ( 1235 )    
  • After 14 and half years long-termfixed fertilization trial with vegetables , the amount and quality of soil organic matter changed evidently. Soil fertility was highly improved by 10 - 15 yearspuse of organic manure in the view of organic matter accumulation and quality improvement . The soil organic matter in the combination of organic manure and inorganic nitrogen was higher than that in organic manure only , while in the trial with only inorganic nitrogen the organic matter decreased. The organic matter content in the control plot fluctuated around 19.0 g·kg -1 . The accumulation rate of organic matter in open area was quicker than that in protected field , but for the CKwas not the case. The yearly mineralization rate of organic matter was between 7.0 % - 11.1 %. The average mineralization rate for open area was 8.67 % , while for protected condition was 9.54 %. Phosphorous and potassium could increase organic matter content to some extent , but it must be based on application of organic manure.With the extension of fertilization with organic , especially with the combination with organic and inorganic fertilizer,the soil readily oxidizable organic matter increased, while Kos decreased ; The soil active humus content, humus acid and E4/ E6 value were increased , while molecular weight and aromaticity of humus acid were decreased , thus progress to humus formation and quality of organic matter were enhanced.

  • Abstract ( 1304 ) HTML ( 1486 ) PDF (262KB) ( 1486 )    
  • The sugar metabolism and their related enzyme activities during fruit development of own-rooted and grafted on Hangzhou-long gourd , Chaofeng F1, Yongshi and Figleaf gourd watermelon were studied. The results showed that the changes of sugar content and sucrose metabolism enzyme activity during the fruit development of different grafted and own-rooted watermelon were similar. At an early stage of fruit development, sugars accumulated slowly due to higher enzyme activity for sucrose cleavage than for sucrose synthesis. At a fruit ripening stage, the sugar content increased rapidly because the enzyme activity for sucrose synthesis was higher than for sucrose cleavage. However , the sugar content in the fruits of all grafted watermelons were lower than that in the fruit of own-rooted watermelon. Among the grafted watermelon fruits , the sugar content of the watermelon grafted on Chaofeng F1 and Hangzhou-long gourd was higher than that of watermelon grafted on Figleaf gourd and Yongshi . The activities of invertase at the early stage, sucrose phosphate synthase and sucrose synthase at the late stage influenced by grafting may be responsible for the decrease of sugar content in the grafted watermelon fruit . The good relationship between sugar accumulation and net enzyme activity of sucrose metabolism indicated that sucrose metabolism enzymes including invertase, sucrose phosphate synthase and sucrose synthase may function together, which resulted in the difference of sugar content in own-rooted and grafted watermelon fruits.

  • Abstract ( 1572 ) HTML ( 1500 ) PDF (258KB) ( 1500 )    
  • The root systems of potato plants ( Solanum tuberosum L. ) ‘Favorita’treated with different CO2concentrations by areoponics culture for 35 days showed an increase in plant height , leaf area , root mass , stole number , tuber mass and overall plant fresh mass for the greenhouse gas treatment (CO2 380 - 920μL·L - 1 + O221 %) and outdoor air treatment (CO2 380μL·L - 1 + O2 21 %) , compared with a high CO2 concentration treatment (CO2 3600 μL·L - 1 + O2 21 %) . In addition , there was an increase in stomatal conductance (Gs) of leaf ,intercellular CO2 concentration (Ci), net hotosynthetic rate ( Pn) and photochemical efficiency ( Fv/ Fm) of leaf , at same time there was an decrease in CO2 compensation point (Γ) , photo respiratory rate (Rp) and carboxylation efficicency (CE) for the formers. The results indicated that the appropriate CO2 concentration (CO2380 - 920μL·L - 1 + O2 21 %) in the root zone may be an important reason why the areoponics culture may advance the growth and the development of potato plant .

  • Abstract ( 1636 ) HTML ( 1334 ) PDF (214KB) ( 1334 )    
  • Protocorm2like2bodies of ( PLBs) Dendrobium candidum were desiccated to different water contents by an air-drying method. Samples at different water contents were cryoperserved , and the heat-stable proteins of samples were immunological detected by anti-dehydrin antibody. Water content was based on dry mass , its linear equation was expressed as y = - 0.1208 x + 9.9636. The optimal water content for cryopreservation seemed to be at the range of 0.1 g/ g DM to 0.5 g/ g DM. The amount of heat-stable proteins increased significantly when water content decreased to 1.0 g/ g DM. Results from immunological detection showed that two bands of the heat-stable proteins with respective molecular masses of 28.7 and 34.3 kD were dehydrins , which appeared when water content dropped to 1.0 g/ g DM. Our work revealed that water content might be a key factor for successful cryopreservation as well as for accumulation of dehydrins.

  • Abstract ( 1550 ) HTML ( 1375 ) PDF (102KB) ( 1375 )    
  • Calli of Anthurium andraeanum‘Jolanba’derived from leaves of in vitro plantlets were cultured with three different treatments to observe their redifferentiation behaviors , and their physiological and biochemical features are discussed. The results went as followed. Decrease of base medium concentration , reduction of sub-culture frequency , or prolongation of sub-culture period favored differentiation and growth of regenerated plantlets.High content of soluble protein favored shoot differentiation , and high content of soluble sugar enhanced shoot growth. There was obvious positive correlation between activities of POD and SOD and number of differentiated shoots. So was between GA1 + 3/ ABA , as well as ZRs/ ABA , and shoot height . The IAA/ ABA ratio or IAA was also related to rhizogenesis. One of the physiological and biochemical causes for the enhancement growth vigor of aseptic plantlet by renewing in vitro culture system and prolonging culture period was maintaining high content of endogenous soluble sugar and favorable balance of endogenous phytohormes.

  • Abstract ( 2490 ) HTML ( 1288 ) PDF (155KB) ( 1288 )    
  • Endogenous hormone levels in the pericarp and the fruit mass were comparatively studied between the fruits from early and late blooms on the same panicles of ‘Feizixiao’litchi . The results showed that fresh mass of the early-bloom fruit was significantly larger than that of late2bloom , and contents of GA1 + 3 、IAA , ABA and IAA/ABA ratio in the pericarp from early-bloom fruit were lower than those from late-bloom fruit , whereas , ZRs level and ZRs/ ABA ratio were higher during fruit development . It is suggested that higher ZRs level and ZRs/ ABA ratio are associated with the formation of larger fruit size in early bloom , while higher IAA level and IAA/ ABA ratio might be related to higher fruit set for the fruit from late bloom.

  • Zoysia japonica Steud. was first introduced to USA from the northeast part of China in 1895. After that , more than 10 species of Zoysia grasses were introduced from China , Korea and other South-Asia areas.Since 1980ps , the warm-season turfgrasses , particularly Zoysiagrass cultivars , have been increasingly used because of the decline in quality of the cool-season turfgrasses as a result of environmental stresses and diseases in the transition regions between cool and warm climates in USA. Several types of new Zoysia grass cultivars have been selected , bred , and planted in the South and transition regions in USA. On the other hand , China has been importing large quantities of the cool-season turfgrass seeds from USA since 1990's and planted them in almost every city in the country. Many problems with the cool-season turfgrasses have recently surfaced in China. This paper will discuss the valuable lessons that other countries have learned , and will offer suggestions for the development of the domestic industrialization of turfgrasses in China.
