Often regarded as a common weed (Dept. of Agriculture 1955), many different species of Chenopodium can be found growing wild today throughout North and South America. The most significant of these in terms of cultivar progeny and economic utilization are the species Chenopodium berlandieri from Mexico and the Southwestern United States, and Chenopodium bushianum of the Eastern United States. Common names often applied to members of this genus Include goosefoot, lamb's quarter, and occasionally pigweed. Reaching a height of 3-4 feet (the Andean cultivar C. quinoa reaches 6 feet) these annual species propagate via seeds produced between August and November.
The plant Tinaspora crispa (Family Menispermaceae) occupies a very important place in the field of medicinal plants and is widely used as a traditional medicine. Tinaspora crispa (locally named “brotowali” in Indonesia) is a small herb which grows widely in temperate and tropical part of Asia. More specifically, the plant is widely found in tropical and subtropical Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, India, China, and Vietnam. The plant is also known by its numerous synonyms, viz., Menispermum crispum Linn., Tinaspora cordifolia F. Vill., Tinaspora tuberculata, and Tinaspora rumphii (Mohammed et al.
Palmettos are found in areas of sandy soil, and bald cypresses and tupelo gums are commonly found in swampy and badly drained areas. Spanish moss festoons many of the cypresses in Okefenokee Swamp. Other trees that are found in the state include the red maple, sweet bay, black cherry, butternut, sassafras, southern magnolia, cottonwood, locust, and elm. Flowering plants grow in great abundance in Georgia. Those natural to the state include the trillium, galax, bellwort, hepatica, mayapple, bloodroot, violet, columbine, lady slipper, and Cherokee rose, which is the stte of Georgia’s state flower.
Both taro and tannia are grown mostly throughout the hot and humid areas of southwestern Ethiopia. In the area there is a large genetic pool of tannia in farmers’ field and homesteads (Amsalu and Tesfaye, 2006), and more than 80 accessions of tannia were collected from the area (Amsalu et al., 2008).
The bacteria also infect the roots leading to the formation of nodules. Actinorhizal nodules consist of several lobes, each lobe has a similar structure as a lateral root. Frankia is able to colonize the cortical tissue of nodules where it fixes nitrogen. [ Actinorhizal plants and Frankias also produce haemoglobins, but their role is less well established than for rhizobia. Although at first it appeared that they inhabit sets of unrelated plants (alders,Australian pines, California lilac, bog myrtle, bitterbrush, Dryas), revisions to the phylogeny of angiosperms show a close relatedness of these species and the legumes.
As is frequently the case with common names, the term nettle is often used for plants that aren't nettles at all. In the Midwest, the plant known as Red Dead-Nettle is actually a member of the Mint Family and the Horse Nettle (which is poisonous) is actually a Nightshade (Seymour, 1997). The true nettles belong to the Urticaceae, also known as the Nettle Family. The Nettle Family is found worldwide and consists of about 45 genera and 700-1000 species. Most of the species are tropical and herbaceous (Walters and Keil, 1996).
Lemon Grass is also found in calid climate such as Thailand and China. Lemon grass is known to treat breast cancer. It is also known to treat many other things such as colds, and coughs. Periwinkle is a biennial, tracheophyte herbaceous plant in the dogbane family that was primitively adapted to the island of Madagascar. It has been widely civilized for hundreds of years.
Regionally, it is known by different names. Tree can be identified by dark grey crocodile bark with red blaze and is a good species for afforestation in bare hill slopes. About seven species of Buchanania have been reported in India, out of which two namely Buchanania lanzan and Buchanania axillaries produce edible fruits. Traditional indigenous knowledge reveals the immense value of almost all parts of the plant i.e. roots, leaves, fruits, seeds and gum for various medicinal uses.
There are many species of plants, stretching across genera, that are added. Some of the plants included in these various admixtures are Diplopterys cabrerana, Psychotria viridis, and Psychotria carthaginensis. There are also members of the Solanaceae that are commonly used, Nicotiana species, Brugmansia species, and Brunfelsia species (Schultes and von Reis 1995). These plants bring different chemical constituents to the drink. The chemical components of Banisteriopsis caapi that cause the hallucinogenic effect are beta-carboline alkaloids found in the bark.
Goldenrods make up the genus Solidago of the family Compositae. The Canada goldenrod is classified as Solidago canadensis, the sweet goldenrod as Solidago odora, the wreath goldenrod as Solidago caesia, and the November goldenrod as Solidago serotina. The European goldenrod is classified as Solidago virgaurea and the silverrod as Solidago bicolor. Goldenrods attracted short-lived commercial attention when Thomas Edison found that certain species contain latex. Some species (sometimes called dyer's-weed) have yielded a dye, and the leaves of many species have long been used for medicinal preparations and teas.
