Taro Leaf Blight (Phytophthora colocasiae) Disease Pathogenicity on Selected Taro (Colocasiae esculenta) Accessions in Maseno, Kenya

Carren Adhiambo Otieno
Taro (Colocasia esculenta) is an important staple crop for small-scale farmers in Asia, Pacific, Americas and Africa. Taro corms and leaves are sources of important nutrients such as calcium, phosphorus, iron, vitamin C, thiamine, riboflavin and niacin. Its cultivation is under threat from many diseases. Taro leaf blight (TLB), a major threat to taro production is caused by the fungus Phytophthora colocasiae Racib. Its control has relied on the use of fungicides which are too expensive for the m...

Total Phenolic and Flavonoid Content and Antioxidant Activities of Ten Malaysian Wild Mushrooms

Jinting Azieana, Mohd Noor Zainon, Abdullah Noriham, Mat Nor Rohana
Mushrooms have been studied and found to accumulate a variety of secondary metabolites with antioxidant activities such as phenolic compounds. Besides phenolics, other bioactive components such as flavanoids from mushrooms are also generally associated with antioxidant activities. Previous studies have reported the association of mushrooms with their antioxidant potentials. However, very few studies are related t

Development of Molecular Marker and Variability Characterization of Aspergillus flavus Isolates of Chilies (Capsicum frutescens L.) through RAPD-PCR and Estimation of Aflatoxin B1 by Indirect Competitive ELISA in India

Virendra Kumar, Ajay Kumar, Shailesh Kumar Kannojia, Rana Pratap Singh
Aflatoxin is the most potent toxic substances, these are the group of closely related mycotoxins produced by fungus i.e. Aspergillus flavus. Twenty seven isolates of A. flavus designated as Af-1, Af-2, Af-4, Af-5, Af-7, Af-9, Af-11, Af-12, Af-13, Af-15, Af-25, Af-28, Af-31, Af-33, Af-34, Af-35, Af-36, Af-37, Af-39, Af-40, Af-46, Af-47, Af-54, Af-55, Af-58, Af-59 and Af-60 were collected from different agro climatic conditions from chilies (Capsicum frutescence) samples. Random amplified polymorp...

Stable Nitrogen Isotopes (δ15N) in Podetias of Lichenized Fungi Cladonia pocillum from Different Altitudes of Habitats

Lev G. Biazrov
The δ15N values of stable nitrogen isotopes were determined in samples of organic matter (OM) of podetias of lichen Cladonia pocillums (Ach.) Grognot, collected across 10 altitudinal levels within the range of 1550 - 2900 m.a.s.l. of both steppes and highland meadows of the Khangai Mountains (Mongolia). No correlation between the δ15N values of lichen OM and the altitude range was detected at the regional scale. However, there is a positive correlation ...
