Nervilia plicata is a morphologically variable terrestrial orchid with a wide geographic range in tropical Asia. Several forms have previously been recognised as distinct taxa due primarily to differences in the size, outline and colour of perianth parts. As a first step towards understanding the links between floral polymorphism, pollination ecolo...

Background Several medicinal properties have been reported for plants in the genus Evolvulus, such as a brain tonic and antifungal from Evolvulus alsinoides, and a sedative and an anthelmintic from Evolvulus nummularius. Therefore, the correct identification of the source plants is critically important. The aim of this research was to investigate t...

... Plants have evolved remarkable adaptations that allow them to tolerate harsh environmental conditions [1,2] and to shape their interactions with other organisms, whether it be communicating with other plants in the community [3], attracting mutualistic partners such as pollinators [4][5][6], or deterring antagonistic individuals such as herbivores [7,8]. Many of these adaptations involve metabolites that are delivered through diverse secretory structures, such as nectaries, stinging hairs, and osmophores [9][10][11][12]. In general, secretion refers to the release of substances from the protoplast [13] and sometimes includes localization of substances within the cell [14]. ...
... Herborized leaves were rehydrated following the herborization reversal protocol of Smith and Smith (1942). They were subsequently dehydrated in a Butyl alcohol series and embedded in histological paraffin (Johansen 1940). After embedding, transverse histological sections of the leaf fragments were prepared using a rotary microtome (LUPETEC MRP09), with an average thickness of 10-12 µm. ...
