    Abstract: Genotype identification of medicinal plants remains important for botanical drug industry. Limitations of chemical and morphological approaches for authentication have generated need for newer methods in quality control of botanicals. In this study, the difference between Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea pallida were studied by molecular markers. F... Show More

    Abstract: The lotus Nelumbo nucifera often forms dense populations at the margins of lakes and ponds. Many aquatic plant species such as N. nucifera are characterized by the ability to reproduce both sexually and asexually, which can affect the genetic diversity of populations growing in different types of environments. We compared the clonal diversities of ... Show More
