Principles and application of hypobaric storage of cut flowers

, : Principles and application of hypobaric storage of cut flowers. Acta Horticulturae (41): 249-268

Hypobaric ventilation with moist air at 0 deg C markedly extends longevity of cut carnations and several other flowers. 'Sleepiness' or failure of bud-stage carnations to open properly was prevented in flowers following up to 9 weeks at 50 Torr (or mm-Hg) and 0 deg C. The decorative life of a bud or fully open flower in holding solutions was generally as good or better than freshly harvested flowers.

The gene composition, gene order and structure of the mitochondrial genome are remarkably stable across bilaterian animals. Lice (Insecta: Phthiraptera) are a major exception to this genomic stability in that the canonical single chromosome with 3...

Retinoids influence both morphogenetic events and differentiation during development of the vertebrate limb. These effects are mediated through nuclear retinoid receptors, which modulate target gene expression. We report here the cloning and chara...
