Such extracts have shown toxicity to insects, which has positioned them as a common alternative in programs of integrated pest management. Therefore, alternative strategies for pest management in greenhouse crops have been developed in recent years, including biological control with natural enemies such as parasitoids, predators and entomopathogenic microorganisms as well as chemical control using plant extracts.

Considering the importance of the minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidants in human health and their presence in these indigenous green leafy vegetables, efforts to promote their consumption should be implemented.

Leaf fluctuating asymmetry, soil disturbance and plant stress: All of them are intimately associated with plants of the genus Bernardia Euphorbiaceae. The sting is removed by cooking or grinding.

It is tolerant of heavy rain and cniddoscolus some drought tolerance. We focused on plants because they are among the most persistent organisms in terrestrial ecosystems. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Antiproliferative tests were carried out with human keratinocytes and six tumor lines. Besides, concentrations of alkaloids, cyanogenic glycosides, phenols, tannins and saponins were determined by spectrophotometric methods; this constituted the first report of quantification of secondary metabolites in the selected plants from Ecuador.

Chaya is a good source of protein, vitamins, calcium, and iron. Thereafter, the feeding trial was terminated, the serum of the blood was prepared, and the liver, spleen, intestine, and organ were isolated for gross pathological investigation.

In south Florida it is often found as a rank shrub, but seldom is appreciated for its food value as a vegetable. The composition of the hydro-methanolic extract of this plant was determined by submitting it to ultra-high performance liquid chromatography UHPLC hyphenated to heated-electrospray ionization mass spectrometry and UV detection.

The rats were divided in two groups: In South East Mexico, because chayamanssa its high nutritional values, is an important part of the diet of many indigenous communities. Sexual dimorphism is evident in the species with the female rostrum more slender and relatively chayamansw than in male, the antennal scape attached near the midpoint of the rostrum in the female and beyond the midpoint in the male, and female with pro- and mesotibia bearing a tooth adjacent to the mucro, this tooth absent in the male.
