Abstract

Mycorrhizal interactions of orchids are influenced by several environmental conditions. Hence, knowledge of mycorrhizal fungi associated with orchids inhabiting different ecosystems is essential to designing recovery strategies for threatened species. This study analyzes the mycorrhizal...

Abstract

Dendrobium officinale is a rare plant of Orchidaceae with considerable medical uses. It is also an important undergrowth plant. It can prevent many chronic diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension. In 2019, dieback disease was observed on D. officinale in China's Fujian Province. We describe the ...

Abstract

Lady's-slipper orchid (Cypripedium calceolus) is considered an endangered species in most countries within its geographical range. The main reason for the decline in the number of populations of this species in Europe is habitat destruction. In this paper the ecological niche modelling approach was ...

Abstract

Here, catanionic surfactant vesicles were prepared by varying the types and compositions of anions and cations and the number of alkyl tails of the surfactants. The formed vesicles were employed to disaggregate and stabilize multiwalled carbon nanotubes bundles in aqueous solutions. Furthermore,...

Abstract

The stem of Dendrobium huoshanense C.Z. Tang and S.J. Cheng was widely used as a medicinal herb in health care products due to its broad pharmacological activities. However, the molecular regulation mechanism of stem development and biosynthetic pathways of important bioactive substances are still...

Abstract

Sexually deceptive orchids typically depend on specific insect species for pollination, which are lured by sex pheromone mimicry. European Ophrys orchids often exploit specific species of wasps or bees with carboxylic acid derivatives. Here, we identify the specific semiochemicals present in O....

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to establish an extraction method for the kinsenoside compound from the whole plant Anoectochilus roxburghii. Ultrasound assisted extraction (UAE) and Ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UPLC) method were used to extract and determine the content of...

Abstract

Photosynthetic orchids associate with mycorrhizal fungi that can be mostly ascribed to the "rhizoctonia" species complex. Rhizoctonias' phylogenetic diversity covers a variety of ecological/nutritional strategies that include, beside the symbiosis establishment with host plants, endophytic and...

Abstract

Aims: Habitat loss and fragmentation are the main threats to biodiversity in tropical forests. Agroecosystems such as shaded cocoa plantations (SCP) provide refuge for tropical forest biota. However, it is poorly known whether the interspecific ecological interactions are also maintained in these...

Abstract

Dendrobium nobile is the only plant that could produce the natural bioactive dendrobine. No other source of dendrobine has been found to date except from D. nobile and via chemical synthesis. In this study, we aimed to examine the potential fungal endophyte isolated from D. nobile stem segments...
