  • Sclerite-bearing annelids from the lower Cambrian of South China. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2019 03 20; 9(1):4955.Han J, Conway Morris S, … Shu D
  • Cambrian annelids are strikingly diverse and reveal important details of annelid character acquisition. Their contribution, however, to a wider understanding of the evolution of the trochozoans (encompassing the annelids as well as such groups as the brachiopods and molluscs) remains limited. Thus the early annelids had been linked to a variety of cataphract Cambrian metazoans, notably Wiwaxia an…
  • Penicillium setosum, a new species from Withania somnifera (L.) Dunal. [Journal Article]
    Mycology. 2019 Mar; 10(1):49-60.George TK, Houbraken J, … Jisha MS
  • Medicinal plants are considered as sources of novel and unexplored groups of endophytic microorganisms. A study on endophytic fungal species from the medicinal plant Withania somnifera (L.) Dunal resulted in the isolation of a Penicillium isolate (WSR 62) with antibiotic activity. Phylogenetic analysis showed that the isolate belongs to section Lanata-divaricata, and it is most closely related to…
  • Two new species of furcocercous cercariae from freshwater gastropods of Western Ghats. [Journal Article]
    J Parasit Dis. 2018 Dec; 42(4):621-629.Arusha K, Prasadan PK
  • Two new furcocercous cercariae, Cercaria sp. I Western Ghats n. sp. and Cercaria sp. II Western Ghats n. sp. were found infecting the freshwater snails Indoplanorbis exustus and Thiara tuberculata respectively of the Wayanad region of the Western Ghats. Cercaria sp. I Western Ghats n. sp., a distome, apharyngeate, non-ocellate and spinose cercaria having three pairs of penetration glands, kidney-…
  • A new species of Caribbean toad (Bufonidae, Peltophryne) from southern Hispaniola. [Journal Article]
    Zootaxa. 2018 Apr 05; 4403(3):523-539.Landestoy T MA, Turner DB, … Hedges SB
  • Peltophryne armata sp. nov. is described from the South paleoisland of Hispaniola, West Indies. This is the only native toad species known to inhabit the Barahona Peninsula, Dominican Republic, in the southernmost part of Hispaniola, and it is allopatric with the widely distributed Hispaniolan toad species, P. guentheri Cochran. However, in a molecular phylogeny, the closest relative of P. armata…
  • Treatment of Insomnia With Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine. [Review]
    Int Rev Neurobiol. 2017; 135:97-115.Singh A, Zhao K
  • Insomnia is a condition with sleep problems and many people suffered from it. Chronic insomnia can last for long time and it will severely affect people's health and the quality of life. In conventional medicine, the most commonly used the medicine is benzodiazepine. It is effective but also has significant side effects. Patients try to use some kinds of alternative medicines. Chinese medicinal h…
  • Antidiabetic properties of Capparis spinosa L. and its components. [Review]
    Biomed Pharmacother. 2017 Aug; 92:293-302.Vahid H, Rakhshandeh H, Ghorbani A
  • An increasing line of evidence confirmed that apart from conventional hypoglycemic drugs, diet and medicinal plants have beneficial effects on diabetes. Capparis spinosa L. (Caper) is a perennial shrub in the Capparidaceae family. It grows in different regions of the world, particularly in Asian and African countries. A wide range of biological activities such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, a…
  • Causes of ecological gradients in leaf margin entirety: Evaluating the roles of biomechanics, hydraulics, vein geometry, and bud packing. [Journal Article]
    Am J Bot. 2017 Mar; 104(3):354-366.Givnish TJ, Kriebel R
  • CONCLUSIONS: We outline a synthetic model showing how biomechanics, hydraulics, vein geometry, rates of leaf expansion, and length of development within resting buds, all tied to leaf thickness, drive patterns in the distribution of entire vs. non-entire leaf margins. Our model accounts for dominance of entire margins in the tropics, Mediterranean scrub, and tundra, non-entire margins in cold temperate deciduous forests and tropical vines and early-successional trees, and entire leaf margins in monocots. Spinose-toothed leaves should be favored in short-statured evergreen trees and shrubs, primarily in Mediterranean scrub and related semiarid habitats.
