A collection of isolates was assembled, and the rhizobia were characterized for acid tolerance. Leucaena : Leucaena Leucaena leucocephala is a leguminous tree that is nutritious forage for domestic livestock when ingested in limited amounts. In the present study, developing seedlings of Leucaena leucocephala Vernacular name: Here we investigated leucocehpala of evolutionary divergence among diploid Leucaena through comprehensively sampled multilocus phylogenetic and population genetic approaches to address species delimitation, interspecific relationships, hybridization, and the predominant mode of speciation among diploids. Studies on the variations in the chemical composition of leucaena The number-average molecular weight Mn of fraction F1 Intestinal digestibility, protein fodder, mobile nylon bag, a three-step technique Taxonomy and field identification are also discussed in detail in Hughes b. The ameliorating leuczena of ZnO nanoparticles on oxidative stress induced toxicity was also confirmed by the reduced MDA content and the elevated level of antioxidative enzyme activities in leaf tissues of L. The model identity test peucocephala no differences among the models tested.

Forage and fodder[ edit ] The legume provides an excellent source of high-protein cattle fodder. Horses and donkeys which are fed it lose their hair. In many cases this acid is metabolized by ruminants to goitrogenic DHP [3-hydroxy-4 1H pyridone] in the rumen , [12] [13] but in some geographical areas, ruminants lack the organisms such as Synergistes jonesii that can degrade DHP.

In such cases, toxicity problems from ingestion of Leucaena have sometimes been overcome by infusing susceptible animals with rumen fluid from ruminants that possess such organisms, [14] and more recently by inoculating cattle rumina with such organisms cultured in vitro.

In India it is being promoted for both fodder and energy. Additionally, the state of Oaxaca in Mexico derives its name from the Nahuatl word huaxyacac, the name for Leucaena leucocephala trees that are found around Oaxaca City. In the southern and central states of India, Subabul is the most important pulpwood species for making pulp.

It has huge positive socio-economic impact on the livelihood of the small farmers where Subabul is grown as an industrial crop.

This provides an alternate crop choice to the farmers of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states of India where they are also growing cotton and chillies. Invasive properties[ edit ] L.

In the s, a widespread loss in Southeast Asia was due to pest attack by psyllids. However, it is now considered unsuitable for urban planting because of its tendency to get uprooted in rain and wind. Eight of every ten trees uprooted by wind in Pune are L. Phytotoxic allelochemicals, such as mimosine and certain phenolic compounds, including p-hydroxycinnamic acid , protocatechuic acid , and gallic acid , have been identified in the leaves of the species.



JoJora Ruminal, intestinal and total tract digestibility of dry matter DM and crude protein CP of leucaena Leucaena leucocephalaMadras thorn Pithecellobium dulce and moringa Moringa oleifera fodders were measured in this study, using nylon bag and mobile bag techniques. In a long-term study aimed at comparing the effect of pruning practices and age of trees, G. Outlying occurrences include an area of central-north Veracruz, and sporadic occurrences across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec into the State of Oaxaca. This was first contemplated in Hawaii Smith, and South Africa Neser,but is made more difficult by the economic importance of L. Commonly, part of plant that contains higher antibacterial substances is its leaf. The aim is to analyze the elements of the assessment based on competence, from the integrated perspective of training, prioritizing what society demands knowledge about the training process and the development of skills in students of higher education, evidenced not only in the cognitive domain but in the assessment through various indicators of professional performance which determines the degree of integral formation of professional skills; identifying the achievement of meaningful learning of knowledge, metacognitive.


Leucaena leucocephala

Description An excellent online database of a huge range of trees giving very good information on each plant - its uses, ecology, identity, propagation, pests etc. The heartwood is a light reddish-brown; the sapwood pale yellow. It is medium textured, close grained. It is easily workable for a wide variety of carpentry purposes and dries without splitting or checking. Sawn timber, mine props, furniture and parquet flooring are among increasingly popular uses.
