Dear friends,

One of our papers has just been published :)
However, its purely of descriptive anatomy by nature :(
We always appreciate the external beauty of plants...but its equally enjoyable and thrilling to study their internal make-up, too...
Here is the link for free access to full article: http://www.scirp.org/journal/PaperInformation.aspx?paperID=22192

Usha di, I hear you...will surely post SEM pics whenever I come up with some interesting ones...
Here are some from our 'beloved' betel leaf, Piper betle...
 
Thanks & regards

Congratulations Vijay Anna....

Pipers are always difficult for me to identify. This paper will help people like me to learn a lot about Pipers. Photos are exceptionally beautiful.

Hoping to find many more from you in future.

Best regards,
Ritesh.

Congratulations dear Doc.
Looking forward for more SEM studies. Do something on Orchid pollinia
if possible.

Thanks a lot Gurcharan ji, Balkar ji, Dinesh ji, Ritesh and Pankaj for the wishes and appreciative comments.

Ritesh, you probably know more about 'La lot', the Vietnamese betel leaf (Piper sarmentosum). Its very close to our Indian betel vine (P. betle) and has similar usage. Morphologically they are similar and difficult to distinguish. So we tried anatomy for the purpose.

Pankaj, yes I look forward to doing pollen microscopy in the future... I am presently working on an orchid species :) and analyzing the quality of its medicinal (commercial) products.

Yes Vijayshankar ji,

I am aware of P. sarmentosum....have collected it from Arunachal Pradesh too. Your detailed study on these species will surely help in identification.

Best regards,
Ritesh.

Dear Vijay:
I just dont know how I missed this whole day of emails, may be it was the day I had houseful of guests.... I forget... today is sunday and am looking thru 400+ emails..... 

and diligently down the pages... found this 11 day old group... wow
Thanks for thinking of me and my interests... so sweet of you...

The SEM are fantastic...  esp of the petiole fracture and the trichome

The vascular bundle  is soooooo like in mammalian lungs... that if we cropped out the surrounding tissue and only saved the middle it could fool the eyes even for a first second as to the origin of the tissue.... animal or vegetable kingdom??  one main could be the thin walled vein, another a small arteriole (of course without musculature, would give it away after the first second) ... and a distended lymphatic channel!!!   loved it...

Yes and like pankaj asks   would love to see the polinia SEM... each one would be different and so exhilarating to see the differential ....

I'll look at the paper later and write again
Usha di

Thanks Usha di for the nice words and also for the interesting information...its amazing to know the similarity of vascular tissue in appearance with that of mammalian lungs...

Thanks Aarti ji for the wishes and appreciative comments...
