    ABSTRACT: The fruit of black chokeberry (Aronia melanocarpa (Michx.) Elliott) is valuable raw material for food and pharmaceutical industries due to the content of anthocyanins, but also other components. The aim of this study was to estimate the content of dry matter, reducing sugars, vitamin C, anthocyanins and the antioxidant potential in black chokeberry fruits depending on the age of plants and the time of fruit harvest. Material for the study was collected in 2011 and 2012 from 6–7, 11–12 and 16–17-year-old plants. Fruits for analyses were harvested on 10–12 August, 29 August – 1 September, 11–13 September, 26–27 September, 11–14 October, 25–27 October. Fruits from the oldest plants contained 16–18% less anthocyanins and 8% less vitamin C, but 2.7 percentage points more dry matter than the fruits from younger plants. On the 29 August–1 September fruits achieved the maximum content of reducing sugars, vitamin C and anthocyanins, 13.7, 8.2 and 715.5 mg 100 g-1, respectively. The content of reducing sugars and anthocyanins stayed unchanged until the end of October, and the content of vitamin C decreased considerably. Antioxidative potential (DPPH) ranged from 77.0 to 85.2% inhibition and it did not depend on the age of harvest time of fruits. The most valuable chokeberry fruits were obtained from plants up to 12 years of age, harvested between 29 August and 13 September. © by Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Przyrodniczego w Lublinie, Lublin 2015.

    ABSTRACT: Few studies examined the stomatal conductance (gs) characteristics of grapevines with an emphasis on daily climatic responses. In the present study, diurnal measurements on leaf temperature and gs of three grapevine cultivars (Alphonse Lavallée, Crimson Seedless and Italia) were carried out. The leaf temperature values for the cultivars at 08:30 were 25.0 ±1°C and it increased to a maximum value between 12:00 and 14:50 p.m. After an almost steady course, it decreased along with the decrease in ambient temperature. The gs values increased from morning (08:30 a.m.) to mid-morning (10:30 a.m.) for all the cultivars. After reaching a peak level at mid-morning, the gs decreased gradually from the mid-morning throughout the afternoon. In the morning, the highest and the least gs values were obtained from Italia (232 mmol H2O m-2 s-1) and Crimson Seedless (149.6 mmol H2O m-2s-1) cultivars. At around 10:30, the gs for Italia, Crimson Seedless and Alphonse Lavallée were at the highest levels with their valus 287.7, 262.1 and 242.0 mmol H2O m-2 s-1, respectively. The last measurements on gs at around 16:10 varied from to 96.7 (Italia) to 112.0 mmol H2O m-2 s-1 (Alphonse Lavallée). During the daily time course, the gs depended mainly on irradiance. Tleaf showed a strong relationship with Tair for all the cultivars. There was a strong, but negative correlation between leaf temperature and air humidity for all the cultivars. © by Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Przyrodniczego w Lublinie, Lublin 2015.

    ABSTRACT: The micromorphological characteristics of the pollen grain sculpture is one of the most important diagnostic traits in plants. Pollen grains in various species of the subfamily Prunoideae are characterized by variations in size, shape and exine sculpture. In the present work, for the first time, the micromorphology of pollen grains of fourteen cultivars from five fruit tree species of the genus Prunus was compared. Morphometric observations and analysis of pollen grains were performed using light and electron scanning microscopy. In terms of size, the pollen grains studied were classified as medium sized and large. Their shape was determined to be prolate, subprolate, or prolate spheroidal. The striae in the exine of P. armeniaca run parallel and can be branched or curved. The sculpture of P. persica grains shows elongated extending paralel regular and irregular striae, dichotomously branched. Regularly arranged, or at places branched, striae are found in the exine of P. avium pollen grains. The ornamentation of P. cerasus grains is composed of elongated striae, sometimes slightly curved or with a tendency to intertwine. The exine of P. domestica grains is characterized by forked, arched striae. The stria thickness differs significantly between cultivars within the species, while the groove width differs only between some species and cultivars. The obtained results on the exine sculpture of pollen grains can be used in the taxonomy of species of the genus Prunus. © by Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Przyrodniczego w Lublinie, Lublin 2015.

    ABSTRACT: Recently, the importance of silicon (Si) has been demonstrated for many plant physiological processes. The recognized function of Si is to help plants to overcome multiple biotic and abiotic stresses, e.g. disease or pests, low temperature, water deficit, salinity or heavy metals. Silicon advantageously impact on plant development and may improve the quality of ornamental plants. Hosta is an ornamental perennial, that flowers can serve as a source of nectar and pollen for floral visitors. The effect of artificial silicon (Si) supply on flowering, nectar production and pollen traits in Hosta Tratt. ‘Krossa Regal’ was studied. A foliar spraying of 0, 120, 180 and 240 mg Si•dm-3was applied with water solutions of Actisil Hydro Plus, containing silicon in the form of H4SiO4. Silicon supply in concentration of 180 and 240 mg Si•dm-3affected the morphometric traits of the flower (perianth width and floral tube length), but not the number of flowers produced per inflorescence. The silicon supply in concentration of 180 and 240 mg Si•dm-3resulted in the increase of nectar production and in sugars excess in floral nectar. Treatments in concentration of 180 and 240 mg Si•dm-3positively influence both pollen production and pollen viability. Presumably, most of these results can be explained through the effect of the Si on metabolism enhancement, e.g. by water balance regulation and increase in photosynthetic efficiency. © by Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Przyrodniczego w Lublinie, Lublin 2015.

    ABSTRACT: Due to the unique taste features and pro-health values of fruits, hot pepper is cultivated in Poland on the commercial scale, most frequently with the use of single harvest which results in fruits at various maturity stage: green fruits, fruits turning colour and physiologically mature fruits (red). This paper, based on the results of 3-year experiments, evaluates utility and biological value of fruits of four Polish cvs.: ‘Bronowicka Ostra’, ‘Orkan’, ‘Cyklon’ and ‘Rokita’. Agricultural study was conducted for three years, during the period 2009-2011. Fruits of various maturity stage consisted of the marketable yield of the and hot pepper from a single harvest. The evaluated cultivars differed in utility and biological value of fruits, quantity and fruit yield structure. The greatest yield was obtained from ‘Orkan’ and ‘Rokita’ cvs. (2.17 kg·m-2), yet the greatest yield of physiologically mature fruits (1.16 kg·m-2) from ‘Bronowicka Ostra’ cv. whose share in marketable yield was 65.0%. Biological value of fruits depended on maturity stage and cultivar genotype. Physiologically mature fruits contained most dry mass (13.18%), soluble solids (4.4%), L-ascorbic acid (199.9 mg·100 g-1 f.m.), total sugars (2.92%). Yet more capsaicinoids were proved in green fruits and fruits turning colour. Least dry mass (%) and total sugars (%) were noted in ‘Orkan’ cv., whereas least L-ascorbic acid in ‘Bronowicka Ostra’ cv., in which fruits at every stage of maturity accumulated most capsaicinoids. © Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Przyrodniczego w Lublinie, Lublin 2015.

    ABSTRACT: Genetic and phenotypic stability of plants obtained via somatic embryogenesis may be disrupted. The reason can be an indirect regeneration of somatic embryos via callus or a high concentration of growth regulators added at the induction stage of somatic embryos. Somatic embryogenesis of ‘Lady Salmon’ (chimeric) and ‘Lady Vitroflora’ (non-chimeric) cultivars was induced on modified Murashige and Skoog (MS) media, supplemented with 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and kinetin (KIN) or 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP). Flow cytometry (FCM) revealed that the plants derived from somatic embryos of both cultivars maintained the ploidy of control plants obtained from the meristem. The colour and pigment content of the inflorescence of plants derived from somatic embryos of ‘Lady Vitroflora’ were similar to the original control plants. However, the ray florets of clones of ‘Lady Salmon’ did not contain carotenoids, characteristic for this cultivar, and consequently produced flowers of different colours. Thus, somatic embryogenesis in chrysanthemums can be applied for separating periclinal chimera components for chimeric cultivars and for receiving an additional source of variation in the breeding of cultivars. In the case of genetically homogeneous cultivars it can be used in production laboratories for cloning plants in vitro via somatic embryogenesis. © by Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Przyrodniczego w Lublinie, Lublin 2015.
