Sexhormone Binding Globulin

Dietary interventions, particularly phytoestrogen-rich foods,19,20 can help to control and modulate the availability of sex hormones. These plant-derived diphenolics have both estrogenic and antiestrogenic properties that can help to diminish breast-cancer risk.21,22 Classical phytoestrogen sources include soy (Glycine soja) isoflavones, lignans from flax (Linum usi-tatissimum) and other seeds and fiber-rich vegetables, and coumestrol from legumes and alfalfa sprouts.23-25 (See the box on page 192 entitled Phytoestrogen-Rich Foods.'') Indole-3-carbinol (I3C)-abundant foods, such as cruciferous vegetables, are equally worth integrating into a hormone-modifying regimen because of these foods' estrogen-modulating activity.26 It is advisable for patients to consume organic produce (and organic food in general) whenever this is possible, to minimize exposure to lipid-soluble pesticides and herbicides that can have numerous adverse effects in the body. What is noteworthy is that several...

Features of Organic Farming

Organic farming is widespread throughout the world and is growing rapidly. In Germany alone there are about eight thousand organic farms occupying about 2 percent of the total arable land. In Italy organic farms number around eighteen thousand, and in Austria about twenty thousand organic farms account for 10 percent of total agricultural output. In 1980 the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimated that there were at least eleven thousand organic farms in the United States and at least twenty-four thousand farms that use some organic techniques. In California, organic foods are one of the fastest-growing segments of the agricultural economy, with retail sales growing at 20 percent to 25 percent per year. Cuba was the only country undergoing a massive conversion to organic farming, promoted by the drop of fertilizer, pesticide, and petroleum imports after the collapse of trade relations with the Soviet bloc in 1990.

The Culture and Care of Carnivorous Plants

Unlike conventional house plants, carnivorous plants actually require less care. For one thing, they don't want or need fertilizer. That solves a common problem most people have with house plants. For another, thev have no need of insecticide sprays. That's good news to organic gardeners as well as anyone who has fought the battle of the bugs around the house plants and in their gardens.

Evolution of pineapple classification

From the first observations of the pineapple by European explorers to the present time, pineapple taxonomy has varied considerably. The first botanical description of cultivated pineapples was by Charles Plumier at the end of the 17th century (but only published in 1755), when he collected plants called karatas and ananas on the island of Hispaniola. Following the native classification, he created the genus Bromelia for the karatas, in honour of the Swedish physician Olaf Bromel, and described the ananas, using polynomials such as Ananas aculeatus fructu ovato, carne albida. In his Species Plantarum, Linnaeus (1753) designated the pineapple as Bromelia ananas and Bromelia comosa, while Miller (1754, 1768) maintained the name Ananas, with six varieties, all cultivated. In the following classifications of the 18th and 19th centuries, as pineapple was mainly known from attractive large-fruited types, these varieties and other culti-vars were easily confused with species, which resulted...

Potential Tool for Organic Farming

In recent years, the world has seen a growing awareness of health and environmental issues, and sustainability has become a key word in discussions on economic development, particularly in relation to developing countries. The community is becoming more and more conscious of these issues globally, and government policies in industrialized as well as developing countries are increasingly being formulated to encourage organic and sustainable agriculture. Producers are turning to certified organic farming systems as a means of lowering input costs, decreasing reliance on non-renewable resources, capturing high-value markets and premium prices, and boosting farm income. Organic farming severely restricts the use of artificial chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Instead, it relies on developing a healthy, fertile soil and growing a mixture of crops. Supplementing the nutrient requirement of crops through organic composts manures is essential for sustaining soil fertility and crop...

Multitrophic Interactions

Members of the Bacillus genus have been evaluated as candidates for bio control against plant diseases, including plant-parasitic nematodes (Niu et al. 2006 Oka et al. 1993 Sela et al. 1998). An immense range of biologically active molecules, capable of hampering pathogen growth, are constructed by this genus, and genetic markers associated with biological control activities of B. subtilis have been identified and characterized (Joshi and McSpadden Gardener 2006). B. subtilis produces a vast array of antibiotics, potentially more than 25 structurally diverse antimicrobial compounds (reviewed by Stein 2005). Cyclic lipopeptides (LPs) of the surfactin, iturin and fengycin families are the most well-known compounds (Ongena and Jacques 2008). These LPs' play a major role in the stimulation of host defense mechanisms in the plant either by performing a biofilm by the bacterium on the plant roots (Bais et al. 2004), secretion of inhibitory quantities of surfactin, iturins and fengycines...

Chewing Herbivores on Roots and Stem Bases

Mainly at night, earth-colored, grey, or greenish-grey lepidopteran larvae (Scotia Agrotis spp.) feed on the tissues close to the ground. They spend the day curled up in the soil. Occasionally, the small, yellowish white larvae of the root fly (Delia Phorbia spp.) may cause the plant to die. In warmer climates, the mole cricket (Gryllotalpa vulgaris LATR. Gryllotalpa gryllotalpa L.) and several millipede species (Blaniulus guttulatus BOSC. , Cylindroiulus teutonicus POCOCK , etc.) can seriously damage the roots. In humus-rich soil with a high proportion of decaying plant tissues (e.g., in gardener's substrates for the propagation of Roman chamomile), the larvae of the St. Mark's fly (Bibio spp.) may attack the plants.

Role of Enzymes Toxins and Phytoalexins

Because cutin and cellulose provide tough, protective barriers for the plant, cutinase and cellulase enzymes are necessary to the penetration of plant hosts by pathogenic fungi. They break down the cutin in the cuticle and the cellulose in the primary cell wall. Hydrolytic (digestive) enzymes also play important roles in pathogenesis. The organic food in the host is usually in the form of complex carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. To be absorbed by pathogens, they must be broken down to their simpler units simple sugars, fatty acids, glycerol, and amino acids. Common digestive enzymes amylases, cellulases, lipases, and proteases produced by pathogens break down these complex foods.

Encourage Natural Predators

Encouraging a diverse community of insect predators is another way organic gardeners manage pests. Benefici is, the term usually used for insect-predatory and parasitic insects and arachnids, such as spiders and mites, play a vital role in the complex community that naturally exists in your yard. Many actively help plants reproduce by spreading pollen others consume or parasitize destructive pests. Benefici is such as lady beetles and honeybees are well-known. Other effective benefici is include lacewings and assassin bugs. For more on benefici is, see pages 258 and 453. Birds are among the most efficient insect predators. When you consider that chickadees spend much of their time during the winter eating aphid eggs or that Baltimore orioles can eat up to 17 tent caterpillars a minute, you won't wonder why many gardeners want to attract birds to their yards. Planting trees and shrubs that provide food and shelter, along with providing a source of fresh water year-round, will go a long...

Main functions of lavender in the past

There is a mystery surrounding the actual appearance or reappearance of lavender in Britain after Roman times (Festing, 1989). The Huguenots have been suggested as possibly bringing it over from France after 1685, however, a poem written by Master Jon Gardener in 1440 suggests that lavender was already growing in Britain by then as do many other references to its medical usage. Many rhymes pertaining to lavender were printed and recited around 1672-85, including the children's rhyme 'lavender green, lavender blue, I shall be king and you shall be queen', (with and without 'diddle-diddle'), suggesting that lavender was well established for centuries.

Fosa spinosissima

The overwhelming variation in this species contributes to taxonomic nightmares but also sen-es as a gardener's delight. The only common feature I can find is the bright green leaves that are composed of five to eleven rounded, delicate leaflets, each Vi to 1 in. long. The plant varies in habit from groundcoverlike to to 4 ft.-high, mounded shnibs. White, yellow, or pink, 1- to 2-m -diameter, single (lowers are borne in profusion on short branches along the stems in May and June, Blackish to dark brown fruit range from Vito V4 in. in diameter One of the most widely distributed rose species in its native range.

This cultivui develops a rounded outline with age, arid it can overtake portions of real estate thought to he uninhabitable,...

Peony Perennials

Attractive, long-lived, bushy plants that bear numerous 3 -6 blossoms, peonies are the perennial gardener's dream come true. Early summer flowers arrive in shades of pink, red, white, and yellow amid glossy, lobed, green foliage plants form neatly rounded clumps roughly 3'-4' tall.

Camping Pesto

Given that the bed was unfenced from our resident rabbits. Perhaps some were eaten, but since I wasn't paying close attention to them I never knew what we lost. In any case, the carrots from the front yard were free of the insect damage that most of our vegetable-garden carrots bore. The lettuce was attractive and tasty until it set stems and bolted, becoming tall and bitter. All in all, it was a surprising success, and I plan to repeat the planting next year. Of course, one reason not to plant edibles in the front yard is the possibility of vegetable theft. The very concept would seem ludicrous to me had I not experienced it in our very first garden. The summer I was first married, our vegetable garden was approximately five square feet alongside the back of the house we were renting, and a zucchini that probably weighed four pounds was taken one weekend. I felt cheated, of course, of the opportunity to cook it. However, as we lived near a complex of subsidized housing, I...

Genetic Improvement

USA as consumers become more health conscious and commercial growers seek new market niches. Breeders seek to produce large-seeded cultivars. Because grain soybeans from the USA are only 10-12 g 100-1 seeds, a seed size of 20-25 g 100-1 seeds is considered large. Pod colour, seed colour and taste have not been given that much attention in the development of culti-vars. Until 1949, a total of 49 vegetable soybean cultivars were introduced or developed (two were released prior to 1920, 30 in the 1930s and five in the 1940s) they are maintained in the USDA germplasm collection. Among them, 'Banes' and 'Jorgen' are still marketed for home gardeners. In the1940s, 38 farmers grew 17 cultivars on 4000 ha. 'Bansei' was the most popular, followed by 'Etum'. The other popular cultivars were 'Aoda', 'Easycook', 'Funk Delicious', 'Giant Green', 'Hokkaido', 'Jogun', 'Rokusun', 'Sac', 'Chusei', 'Higan', 'Imperial', 'Kanro', 'Mendota', 'Sanga' and 'Sousei' (Bernard, 2001). Bernard (2001) stated 'The...

Epilogue

I've seen rabbits out and about, but none has fallen victim to our crocuses this spring. The chicks are still too small to loose in the yard, so they are housed in a cage in the garage. For now, they stay warm under a brooder bulb that I found, complete with a picture of a yellow chick on the box, at the warehouse-style home and garden retailer in the mall near our suburb. Is the presence of this bulb in that store a relic of nearby farms, recently built over, or is it an indicator that my strange love of chickens is shared more widely than I thought I dug up another patch of lawn in the backyard to expand our vegetable garden and was overjoyed to find some fat white grubs, because the chicks love them. This winter I've made friends with a local beekeeper and with other weed-friendly gardeners, some of whom also have young children. I have started to feel less alone in my affection toward our weedy lawn now that the township has declared one soccer field pesticide free, now that I...

Allelopathy

Wetland soils provide anoxia-tolerant plants with access to ample light, water, and nutrients. Intense competition, involving chemical strategies, ensues among the plants. The roots of wetland plants are prime targets for root-eating pests, and the wetland rhizosphere is an ideal environment for many other organisms and communities because it provides water, oxygen, organic food, and physical protection. Consequently, the rhizosphere of wetland plants is densely populated by many specialized organisms, which considerably influence its biogeochemical functioning. The roots protect themselves against pests and control their rhizosphere organisms by bioactive chemicals, which often also have medicinal properties. Anaerobic metabolites, alkaloids, phenolics, terpenoids, and steroids are bioactive chemicals abundant in roots and rhizospheres in wetlands. Bioactivities include allelopathy, growth regulation, extraorganismal enzymatic activities, metal manipulation by phytosiderophores and

Sweet gum

Thli lovely tree would be on every gardener's wish list were it not for the woody, spiny, capsular. 1- to I1 in. diameter fruit, which abscise through fall and winter. Nevertheless, Sweet gum is still widely planted throughout the Fast, Midwest, and South for its excellent fall color. The star-shaped, five- to seven-lobed, 4- to 71 -in.-diameter, lustrous dark green leaves turn gorgeous shades of yellow, orange, red, and purple and persist late into fall. Decidedly pyramidal habit in youth, the tree develops an oblong to rounded crown at maturity. Lxcellent plant for moist soil areas along streams and watercourses it also performs well In drier soils. Can develop chlorosis in high pH soils. Grows 60 to 75 ft. high, 40 to 50 ft, wide. Zones 5 to 9, New York to Illinois, south to Florida, Texas, and Mexico,
