Growing deciduous fruit trees in the tropics - a new approach to an old problem

, : Growing deciduous fruit trees in the tropics - a new approach to an old problem. Acta Horticulturae (49): 109-111

The problem of dormancy breaking in warm climates is solved in Batu, East Java, Indonesia, by defoliating apple trees up to 4 weeks after harvest. This induces rapid lateral bud-break and increases blossoming which follows some 4 weeks later; since the crop is ready in another 5 months 2 harvests can be obtained in a year. In addition, the branches are bent to an angle of 60 deg and tied to pegs; this lessens apical dominance, reduces vigour and encourages earlier fruiting.

Fish larvae were sampled in 1986 in the St. Clair river, and adjacent waters. Species richness (9 taxa as larvae; 4 others as juveniles) and abundance was lowest in the river, where many larvae (e.g., burbot, rainbow smelt, and yellow perch) were...

Electrofusion of evacuolated and vacuolated oat leaf protoplasts is difficult because of the different size and density of these cells which results in separation of the two fusion partners during dielectrophoresis. The fusion yield of this cell s...
