the use of medicinal herbs by diabetic jordanian patients.diabetes mellitus is the most common metabolic disorder worldwide. to date, there have been no reports on the frequency of use of herb medicines in the managements of diabetes mellitus in jordan. this cross-sectional study was conducted by interviewing 310 diabetic patients visiting two medical centers in jordan: jordan university of science & technology medical center and sarih medical center between december 2003 and august 2004. it is found that 31% of interviewed patients have used herbal pr ...200617182483
linking xylem water storage with anatomical parameters in five temperate tree species.the release of water from storage compartments to the transpiration stream is an important functional mechanism that provides the buffering of sudden fluctuations in water potential. the ability of tissues to release water per change in water potential, referred to as hydraulic capacitance, is assumed to be associated with the anatomy of storage tissues. however, information about how specific anatomical parameters determine capacitance is limited. in this study, we measured sapwood capacitance ...201627083523
stem water storage in five coexisting temperate broad-leaved tree species: significance, temporal dynamics and dependence on tree functional traits.the functional role of internal water storage is increasingly well understood in tropical trees and conifers, while temperate broad-leaved trees have only rarely been studied. we examined the magnitude and dynamics of the use of stem water reserves for transpiration in five coexisting temperate broad-leaved trees with largely different morphology and physiology (genera fagus, fraxinus, tilia, carpinus and acer). we expected that differences in water storage patterns would mostly reflect species ...201323999137

from the linden flower to linden honey--volatile constituents of linden nectar, the extract of bee-stomach and ripe honey.honey is produced by honeybees (apis mellifera), which collect nectar from flowers, digest it in their bodies, and deposit it in honeycombs, where it develops into ripe honey. we studied the evolution of the volatile constituents from the nectar of linden blossoms (tilia cordata) to honey via the 'intermediate' honeybee. the sampling of the contents of the honey stomach or honey sack of the bee is unique. extracts were prepared from nectar, from the liquid of the honey stomach, and from ripe hon ...200417191825
differences in pigment composition, photosynthetic rates and chlorophyll fluorescence images of sun and shade leaves of four tree species.the differential pigment composition and photosynthetic activity of sun and shade leaves of deciduous (acer pseudoplatanus, fagus sylvatica, tilia cordata) and coniferous (abies alba) trees was comparatively determined by studying the photosynthetic rates via co(2) measurements and also by imaging the chl fluorescence decrease ratio (r(fd)), which is an in vivo indicator of the net co(2) assimilation rates. the thicker sun leaves and needles in all tree species were characterized by a lower spec ...200717587589
medicinal plant extracts can variously modify biofilm formation in escherichia coli.low concentrations of black tea and water extracts from medicinal plants arctostaphylos uva-ursi, vaccinium vitis-idaea, tilia cordata, betula pendula and zea mays stimulated biofilm formation in escherichia coli bw25113 up to three times. similar effect was observed for tannic acid and low concentrations of quercetin. in contrast, the extract from urtica dioica reduced biofilm production. pretreatment with plant extracts variously modified antibiotic effects on specific biofilm formation (sbf). ...201424500005
photosynthetic acclimation to light in woody and herbaceous species: a comparison of leaf structure, pigment content and chlorophyll fluorescence characteristics measured in the field.acclimation of foliage photosynthetic properties occurs with varying time kinetics, but structural, chemical and physiological factors controlling the kinetics of acclimation are poorly understood, especially in field environments. we measured chlorophyll fluorescence characteristics, leaf total carotenoid (car), chlorophyll (chl) and nitrogen (n) content and leaf dry mass per area (lma) along vertical light gradients in natural canopies of the herb species, inula salicina and centaurea jacea, a ...201221972867
