Echeveria purhepecha (Crassulaceae) is described as a new species and illustrated. According to its morphological features it belongs to series Retusae E. Walther. Within this group, it resembles E. fulgens Lem., especially var. obtusifolia (Rose) Kimnach, from which it differs by its shorter leaves, shorter inflorescence, fewer flowers per cincinnus, longer pedicel and longer major calyx segment, scarlet red corolla and oblong-lanceolate corolla segments.

    The defence chemicals and behavioural adaptations (gregariousness and active defensive behaviour) of pine sawfly larvae may be effective against ant predation. However, previous studies have tested their defences against very few species of ants, and few experiments have explored ant predation...

    Papaver rhoeas (Papaveraceae) has a well-characterized gametophytic self-incompatibility system in which self-pollen tube growth ceases either just before, or just after, emergence from the copal aperture. Papaver flowers are unusual, however, in having flat stigmatic rays sitting directly on...
