  • Leaf Adaptation of Eurya japonica Thunb. (Pentaphylacaceae) in Coastal

    • Abstract: To clarify the process of plant adaptation to coastal areas, we conducted morphological and anatomical analyses of Eurya japonica Thunb. (Pentaphylacaceae). There was no significant difference in leaf shape between the inland and coastal populations, although the leaves in coastal populations tended to be thicker. However, our anatomical analysis revealed significant differences in stomatal size and adaxial and abaxial epidermal cell sizes. The smaller stomata of the coastal population of this species were effective in reducing transpiration during gas exchange. Furthermore, the expansion of epidermal cells could be an adaptive strategy to retain water in leaves in coastal environments.

  • In vitro Bioassay of Allelopathic Activities of Soybean, and Three
           Isoflavones, Using Protoplast Co-culture Method with Digital Image

    • Abstract: Inhibitory allelopathic activities of dried leaves of potted plants and protoplasts of Glycine max (soybean) cv. Okuhara-wase were studied using two in vitro bioassay methods. Strong inhibition (90%) of growth of recipient lettuce root was obtained with 50 mg soybean leaves using the lettuce seedling growth test (sandwich method), and moderate inhibition (65%) of lettuce protoplast division was obtained with 100 × 103 mL-1 protoplasts of etiolated soybean seedlings using the protoplast co-culture method with digital image analysis (DIA-PP method). Three isoflavones, genistein, genistin (genistein-7-O-glucoside), and daidzin (daidzein-7-O-glucoside) were investigated as putative allelochemicals using the DIA-PP method. The three isoflavones at 100 µM showed early crystal accumulation in lettuce protoplasts and inhibited lettuce protoplast division by 100%. Genistein showed the strongest inhibition. The results were compared and discussed with the previous reports on the invader leguminous plant, Kudzu, and two isoflavones, daidzein and Kudzu-specific puerarin (daidzein-6-C-glucoside), and other allelopathic plants and their putative allelochemicals.

  • Adaptative Leaf Morphology of Eurya japonica Thunb. (Ternstroemiaceae) in
           Serpentine Areas

    • Abstract: Serpentine soils are known to affect plant growth and plants in these soils have morphological and anatomical modifications. Comparative leaf morphology and anatomy studies of Eurya japonica Thunb. was conducted between serpentine and inland (control) areas. Our morphological analyses revealed that the individuals in the serpentine areas had significantly smaller and thicker leaves than those in the inland areas. Our anatomical analyses showed that the smaller leaves of serpentines had decreased numbers of cells, and their thicker leaves contributed to the increased height of epidermal cells, palisade tissue, and spongy tissue. Furthermore, the stomatal size of serpentines was significantly smaller than those from the inland areas. We concluded that E. japonica adapted to the serpentine areas by decreasing leaf size due to low levels of nutrients, by thickening the leaves to store water and reducing the stomatal size to minimize water loss via gas exchange.

  • Relations in the Size Variation of Plant Organs: a Case Study of Staghorn
           Sumac Leaves and Longleaf Pine Cone Scales

    • Abstract: Plants automatically control the size variations in organs to achieve efficient exploitation of resources. However, it is unclear whether the scaling relationships of plant organs share a similar character for different individuals under varied micro-conditions (e.g., light and soil water). We conducted a case study of the lengths of staghorn sumac leaves and longleaf pine cone scales to test the relationships. Our results indicated that although there were size variations, there existed power laws of frequency in the lengths of staghorn sumac leaves and longleaf pine cone scales. The exponents differed but were positively correlated with the minimum length of leaves or cone scales. Taylor’s Law existed in the lengths of cone scales and some tree leaves, and scale break was observed. This study provides new information on scaling relationships and self-organization in the patterns of tree parts arrangement. Taylor’s Law may be used to detect minor changes in the growth regime.
