Improving the tolerance of Jatropha curcas L. plants to abiotic stresses.

Jatropha curcas has gained widespread attention as a new-age 'energy crop' because the biodiesel that can be produced from the oil of their fruits has properties comparable with those of fossil fuels. Abiotic stresses have become an integral part of crop production. Although J. curcas has been...

Progress in mitochondrial genome diversity and phylogeny of Psocodea.

The superorder Psocodea has over 10 000 described species in two orders: Psocoptera (barklice and booklice) and Phthiraptera (chewing lice and sucking lice). Many psocodean insects are important stored-product pests, and some are important vectors for human and animal diseases. Recent studies...
