Cryptogamic botany (1955)
Transpiration rates for whole plants, individual branches or tillers can be determined by techniques which measure the rate at which sap ascends stems. All of these methods use heat as a tracer for sap movement, but they are fundamentally different in their operating principles. Two methods commonly employed, the stem heat balance and trunk sector heat balance methods, use the heat balance principle; the stem is heated electrically and the heat balance is solved for the amount of heat taken up by the moving sap stream, which is then used to calculate the mass flow of sap in the stem. In the heat-pulse method, rather than using continuous heating, short pulses of heat are applied and the mass flow of sap is deter-mined from the velocity of the heat pulses moving along the stem. In addition, rates of sap flow can be determined empirically, using the thermal dissipation technique, from the temperature of sapwood near a continuously-powered heater implanted in the stem. Users must understand the theory underlying each of these methods, so that they can select the method most appropriate to their application and take pre-cautions against potential sources of error. When attempting to estimate transpiration by stands of vegetation from measurements of sap flow in individual plants, users must also select an appropriate sampling strategy and scaling method. Key words: Sap flow, transpiration, stem heat balance, heat pulse velocity, review.
 Economic botany
The first edition of this “textbook of useful plants and plant products” appeared in 1937, and aimed at providing the student, who had not yet started to specialize, and also the ordinary reader with an introduction to the vast subject of economic botany. The whole field is covered briefly in a series of chapters devoted to industrial plants and plant products such as fibres, forest products, tanning and dye materials, rubbers, gums, resins, essential oils, fatty oils, sugars and starches; drug plants used in medicine and to provide fumitories and masticatories; food plants including cereals, legumes, vegetables and fruits; and the food adjuncts such as spices and beverages. The various plants falling within each section are dealt with in the form of short, simply written notes giving brief descriptions of the plants, their distribution and economic importance and the method of preparing and using their products.
 Laboratory techniques in botany
This practical manual covering all the main techniques and apparatus used in botanical laboratories in schools, colleges, and universities includes instructions concerning the collecting, culturing, and preserving of fungi and bacteria.
 Morphological Characterization of Macro Fungi Associated with Forest Tree of National Botanical Garden, Dhaka
This investigation was conducted in National Botanical Garden, Dhaka located at 24°00′ N (Latitude), 90°00′ E (Longitude) to document the morphology, diversity and distribution of macro fungi during the rainy seasons of July to October, 2015. A total of 23 macro fungi samples were collected and identified to 20 species under 10 genera and 10 families. The predominant genera were Ganoderma sp., Lepiota sp., Daedeleopsis sp., Russula sp., Psythyrella sp., Lycoperdon sp., Crepidotus sp., Psilocybe sp, Flammulina sp. and Cantharellus sp. The survey revealed that six species are edible, thirteen species are inedible but among them nine species have medicinal value and only one species of unknown uses. The maximum density of occurrence was exhibited by Psilocybe cubensis (45%) followed by Lepiota sp. (40%), Ganoderma pfeifferi (35%) and Ganoderma lucidum (25%). The specimens were deposited to Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Herbarium of Macrofungi (SHMF).
 Effects of Botanical Origin and Ageing on HMF Content in Bee Honey
Aims: HMF (5-hydroxymethylfurfural) is considered an important quality parameter for honey. Elevated concentrations of HMF in honey provide an indication of origin, storage in poor conditions or age of honey. The objectives of this study were to investigate the effect of aging and botanical origin of honey on the HMF content in it, as well as to analyze the relationship between the content of HMF and fructose/glucose ratio.
Study Design: In this paper, the HMF levels in different botanical origins of sixty bee honeys from Bosnia and Herzegovina (Acacia: Robinia pseudoacacia, meadow, chestnut: varii, mountain) were analysed; the influence of ageing on HMF formation was also investigated.
Place and Duration of Study: Department of Chemistry, University in Tuzla, between January 2011 and Mart 2011.
Methodology: Determination of HMF content was done by spectrophotometric White method. Content analysis of fructose and glucose in honey samples was performed using the HPLC.
Results: Concentration of HMF in analyzed honey samples ranged from 0.28 mg/kg to 207.45 mg/kg. The HMF formation was correlated with botanical origin, age of honey and fructose/glucose ratio. Samples of 4 year old honey contains on average 52.44% higher HMF than fresh honey samples. These results clearly show that longer storage of honey increases the concentration of HMF. In addition, honey exposure to high temperatures affects content of HMF, which catalyzes the dehydration of fructose to form new quantities of HMF. The formation of HMF and its concentration in honey also depends on the botanical origin of honey. Samples of acacia honey showed the highest average content of HMF. The data obtained were statistically elaborated.
Conclusion: Botanical origin, high temperature and storage significantly affect the content of HMF in honey. There is a negative correlation between the F/G ratio and HMF content in analyzed honey samples.
