Combining ability estimates of some tester lines used onto cytoplasmic male sterile cotton
ABSTRACT:
Three cytoplasmic male sterile lines of cotton and six hirsutum ono-restore pollinators were used as tester lines on to CMS parents to study the general and specific combining ability parameters for yield of seed cotton, seed index , lint index, ginning outumn percentage and staple length . of tht tester lines used , K- 68/9 was observed to be the best combiner for yield of seedcotton and therefore was considered suitable for converting it into restore parent to be utilized in hybrid cotton development programme. Per se performance of hybrids for yield of seedcotton was correlated with specific combining ability ffects but the correlation did not hold good with respect to seed index , lint index, g.o.t.% and staple length. Generally the GCA of a tester line was not correlated with the SCA of a hybrid for all the characters. GCA effects were more pronounced with respect to yield , as compared to SCA effects , and therefore selection has been advocated on the basis of GCA’s of the tester lines.

The role of medium composition and light intensity on in vitro root formation of strawberry
ABSTRACT:
In vitro propagated strawberry shoots were subjected to in vitro rooting under different BA levels, types of media, incubation temperatures and light intensities . root formation started within 10 days of culture undr high light intensity of 13.5W.m-2. In vitro rooting of strawberry shoot tips occurred redily on inorganic salts of murashige and skoog medium . the extent of root formation was directly related to sucrose and light intensity. No root formation occurred in the dark , under low light and in sucrose free medium. BA upto 1 um did not inhibit root formation . addition of

Regulations of pollen germination and tube growth of different parts of catharanthus roseus L.
ABSTRACT:
Alcoholic extract of vegetative and reproductive parts of catharanthus roseus was tested for substances responsible for germination and growth of pollen tube of the same plant. Several promoters and inhibitors of pollen germination and tube growth were detected in extracts of anthers , stigma, style and ovary. In the ovary extract no pollen tube growth promoter was found. The major differences in the quality of the growth regulators dependent on the type of tissue tested. Extracts of leaf , young fruit, mature fruits and seeds contained compounds which inhibited the pollen germination and the tube growth of C. roseus . the Rf value of the inhibitors differed according to the tissue used . no promoter was found in any of these extracts.

ABSTRACT:
an epilithic periphyton community howed significant seasonal changes I species composition , abundance and photosynthetic rates in a slow-flowing , mammade stream. Blue green algae were dominant during summer, diatoms were dominant during spring and winter, and green algae dominated the community during fal.

Effect of brown rust infection on indole- 3-acetic acid and the activity of enzyme IAA-oxidase in different cultivars of wheat.
ABSTRACT:
Effect of brown rust infection on endogenous level of IAA and the activity of enzyme IAA-oxidase in three different cultivars of wheat was investigated . infected stem tissues of highly susceptible cultivars Pak-70 and Chenab- 70 showed significant increase in IAA level as comparatively resistant cv., ZA-77. Diseased leaves of cv., ZA-77 and Pak-70 showed no significant change in IAA contents, whereas it increased significantly in cv., Chenab-70. Pronounced decline In IAA oxidase activity was observed in leaves and stem tissues of cv., Chenab-70, while in cv., Pak-70 it is increased after sporulation and then declined. Rust infection does not seem to have any considerable effect on

Effect of N-sources on growth of wheat
ABSTRACT:
Effect of urea , (NH4)NO3 and NH4Cl on the growth of wheat cv., Lu-26-S in sandy clay loam was studied . N fertilizers significantly increased palnt height , number of tillers , straw weight and grain yield with marked effects where urea was used. Maximum uptake of N,P and K by wheat plant was recorded under yrea fertilization , indicating urea as a better N- source for growth of wheat.

Effect of sea water salinity on nodulation and nitrogen fixation in prosopis juliflora (Swartz) DC.
ABSTRACT:
Fifty six day old prosopis juliflorasedlings were subjeacted to 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80% sea water treatment for one month. After 86 days the morphology of nodules , root-shoot ratio and total nitrogen content in root and shoot were analysed. Nodules showed morphological alterations in size and shape . root-shoot ratio was lowest in the control and showed a gradual increase with increasing sea water concentrations. The amount of nitrogen in the stem and leaves showed a gradual decrease due to disturbance in the translocation od divalent cations to the aerial parts, while roots registered a gradual increase with increasing sea water concentrations due to accumulation of assimilated nitrogen n the rocks.

Astudy of natural regeneration of juniperus excels M.bieb . in Baluchistan , pakistan
ABSTRACT:
Regenerating seedlings from 60 mature stands on juniper track in Baluchistan ranged from zero to 219 ha-1 with a mean of 52 ha-1. Seedling density and basal area (p<.001) and tree basal area and seedling density (p<.05) were significantly correlated indicating that seedlings are shade loving. Highest average seedling density and basal area were recorded from west facting slope. Size frequency distribution of seedling showed a wave of recruitment in addition to past and future trends of the seedling populations suggesting that juniper forests are not deteriorating.

Controlling elements inducing mutational changes at the pal locus in anttrrhinum majus

Controlling elements inducing mutational changes at the pal locus in anttrrhinum majus
ABSTRACT:
In anttrrhinum majus the pal-rec-low-o is a repressed state of the pallida-recurrens allele. In heterozygous condition, especially with pal-tub- pal—tub tester, its mutuation frequency increases from few tiny spots to very clear sectors of mutability on a recessive colourless background. This particular evocation of the pal-rec-low-o allele is considered to be dependent on the presence of a regulatory element Pr. In the absence of such a regulatory element, the pal-rec- low-o exhibits stable expression owing to the effect of a repressor Rp residing ai or near the locus. However, pal-tub- regulatory element could be inactive , when inactive , can be made transactive by introducing a fresh regulator which may segregate at meiosis.

ABSTRACT:
A palynological study of 9 species of the genus arnebia from Pakistan was carried out . the pollen were characterized by having two endoapertures per ectoaperture and a well developed costae with rectangular to constructed rectangular equatorial outline and echinate tectum. Using principle component analysis (PCA) and cluster analysis of various pollen characters a correlation of the style length and polen size was worked out.

A cladistics analysis of calandrinia (portulacaceae)
ABSTRACT:
The cladistics relationship among 34 species of the genus calandrinia H.B. et K. (portulacaceae), endemic to austrailia were analysed for 22 binary attributes , by using “OHYSIS” computer program. The criteria used to assign evolutionary polarity of attribute state is discussed indetail. In all the phenograms four main groups come out fairly clearly. The major diference in the trees produced by PHYSIS are the changes in the position of a few taxa, within the major group. The present paper provides data on variation and correlation in seed and pollen characters , and also syntheized detailed morphological relationships. The species having questionable position in some groups are discussed in the light of their unique characters.
