  1. Comparative morphology of the leaf epidermis in Lobelia (Lobelioideae) from China

    Chunjiao Li, Jingmei Lu, Yan Li, Junyi Zhu and Lifan Zhang

    Version of Record online: 21 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/jemt.22862

    Research highlights

    The micro-structures of the leaf epidermis prove useful in differentiating Lobelia species that are morphologically very similar and closely allied. They will also be important in evaluating previous classifications of Lobelia in China.

  2. Distinguishing the Chinese materia medica Tiepishihu from similar Dendrobium species of the same genus using histological and microscopic method

    Kun-Zi Yu, Hua Yan, Hai-Chuan Tai, Nan-Ping Zhang, Xian-Long Cheng, Zeng-Xi Guo, Shuang-Cheng Ma and Feng Wei

    • Establish a quick and simple method to distinguish Tiepishihu from other 11 species by combining histologic and microscopic methods together.
    • Eleven species in the same genus can be distinguished from each other with microscopic and histological characteristics.
  3. Retinal imaging analysis based on vessel detection

    Arshad Jamal, Mohammed Hazim Alkawaz, Amjad Rehman and Tanzila Saba

    Research Highlights

    This research has analyzed the retina through vessel detection. The Retina Image Analysis (RIA) assists in vessel segmentation process by calculating vessel diameter, standard deviation, tortuosity & displaying detected vessel on retina.

  4. Improved capacity to evaluate changes in intestinal mucosal surface area using mathematical modeling

    Chasen J. Greig and Robert A. Cowles

    Version of Record online: 13 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/jemt.22866

    Research Highlights

    Evaluation of changes to the intestinal mucosa commonly relies on histologic measures. Using a novel and accurate method for calculating mucosal surface area, we found significant differences between experimental groups which were missed by standard measures alone.

  5. Morphogenesis and developmental ultrastructure of Nicotiana tabacum short glandular trichomes

    Branka Uzelac, Dušica Janošević, Dragana Stojičić and Snežana Budimir

    Version of Record online: 11 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/jemt.22864

    • The development and ultrastructure of tobacco short GTs have been characterized from initiation to senescence.
    • Early structural changes characteristic of senescence in their glandular cells occurred concurrently with accumulation of secretory product.
