Flora of fukuyama japan and the surrounding neighborhood


, : Flora of fukuyama japan and the surrounding neighborhood. Bulletin of the Chugoku National Agricultural Experiment Station Series E (Environment Division) (23): 1-108

Spontaneous vascular plants collected in and around the city of Fukuyama during the period from 1960 to 1985 are listed in this paper. The total number of the plants attains to 1,649, including 102 pteridophytes, 10 gymnosperms, 412 monocotyledons, and 1,125 dicotyledons. Of them 243, i.e., 14.7% of the total, are exotic plants, some of which have been introduced as pasture plants or turf plants and have escaped. The flora of this area appears to be influenced by the change of environment in recent years owing to rapid industrial development, thickening traffic, reduced production of rice, use of herbicides, and prevalence of pine wood nematode. Some comments are made on naturalized plants, indigenous rare plants, aquatic plants, beach plants, carnivorous plants and parasitic plants.

Methods:...

It has been reported that excessive intake of fluoride can induce renal lesions. However, its pathogenesis is still less understood. Therefore, this study was conducted to investigate oxidative damage and the relationships between the oxidative da...
