Prediction of Osyris lanceolata (Hochst. & Steud.) site suitability using indicator plant species and edaphic factors in humid highland and dry lowland forests in Kenya

Osyris lanceolata (African Sandalwood) belongs to the family Santalaceae that hosts some of the most valuable species for perfumery oil extraction. In India and Australia, Santalum album and Santalum spicatum are well developed for perfumery oil extraction through establishment of commercial plantations.

The relation of endogenous abscisic acid and indole acetic acid on vigor of some selected dwarf mahaleb (Prunus mahaleb L.) genotypes

Vigor reduction of sweet cherry varieties by dwarfing rootstock is well known, but the mechanism by which a rootstock induces dwarfing is not well understood. Plant hormones have been associated with dwarfing mechanism. This study was conducted, with the main purpose of determining the correlation between of endogenous abscisic acid (ABA) and indole acetic acid (IAA) and vigor of 10 selected dwarf mahaleb (Prunus...
