Mark // Annals of Botany;Aug2009, Vol. 104 Issue 3, p387 

    Background: Floral morphology, particularly the angle of lip attachment to the column, has historically been the fundamental character used in establishing generic limits in subtribe Oncidiinae (Orchidaceae), but it has also been long recognized that reliance on this character alone has produced...

    The article discusses the findings of a study which showed the color-changing characteristic of non-rewarding Oncidiinae orchids. The research conducted by a team from the Imperial College of London confirmed that neotropical orchids like the Trichocentrum ascendens and Oncidium nebulosum can...

    Mutualistic symbioses between plants and fungi are a widespread phenomenon in nature. Particularly in orchids, association with symbiotic fungi is required for seed germination and seedling development. During the initial stages of symbiotic germination, before the onset of photosynthesis,...

    Baptistonia is endemic to the Brazilian Atlantic Forest and is made up of 23 species, the phylogenetic relationships of which are analysed here. Three plastid regions ( psbA-trnH, rpoB-trnC and trnS-G) were sequenced. Using seven inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers, we scored 183 loci of...

    Tissue-specific promoters are required for plant molecular breeding to drive a target gene in the appropriate location in plants. A chromoplast-specific, carotenoid-associated gene ( OgCHRC) and its promoter ( Pchrc) were isolated from Oncidium orchid and characterized. Northern blot analysis...
