Passionflower “Lady Margaret” (Passiflora coccinea x incarnata) - according to the texts, this variety is not a larval host plant for gulf frittilary butterflies, but in my garden, they denude it every fall.
Virulent Rhodococcus fascians maintains cotyledons as a sink tissue
Both pathogenic and epiphytic organisms obtain nutrients from host plants. Dhandapani et al. show the differential impact of an epiphytic (avirulent) strain and a pathogenic strain of the cytokinin-producing bacterium Rhodococcus fascians on source/sink relationships within pea cotyledons during and following germination. Response of Pisum sativum following seed inoculation with Rhodococcus fascians. (1) Growth stages and morphology of P. sativum inoculated with R. fascians avirulent strain…
Gardens are For Living | Gardenista "The Elysian Landscapes headquarters is a must stop on the Kameon garden tour. A space that was once derelict has been transformed into a lush oasis. It's loaded with Kameon's favorite plants, color combos and furnishings and always the host offers multiple terraced areas and seating for guests and employees. Her clever use of a concrete retaining wall, doubles as the back of a U-shaped sofa."
Gene expression in Musa acuminata during interactions with Meloidogyne incognita
Root-knot nematodes (RKN) (Meloidogyne spp) cause considerable losses in banana (Musa sp.). Castañeda et al. investigate the root transcriptome in Musa acuminata during compatible interactions with M. incognita showing that the significant modulation of host genes during infection are indicative of defence responses involving reactive oxygen species (ROS) and jasmonic acid (JA) / ethylene (ET) signalling. Histopathological examination of root sections of Musa acuminata genotypes CAV (left)…
