It was rather a singular one,--a brilliant scarlet geranium, and one single white japonica, with its glossy leaves.
There are six species of lobsters that are most commonly seen here, including: Panulirus japonicas, Panulirus longipes, Panulirus ornatus, Panulirus peniciliatus, Panulirus homarus, Panulirus versicolor.
The spiny Panulirus japonicas is most commonly seen in waters off Taiwan's north coast, and is rarely seen in southern Taiwan.
Las formas japonicas se domesticaron en alguna parte del Sur de China, dispersandose hacia el norte conformando las formas de tipo templado, y otras se extendieron hacia el Sur de Asia y al oeste de Africa generando los tipos tropicales, tambien llamados arroces jabanicos (Vaughan et al., 2003; Toriyama et al.,2005; Garris et al., 2005; Ikehashi, 2009; Purugganan, 2010)
Inicialmente, la mayoria de los trabajos se realizaron con variedades japonicas, y posteriormente se dio con variedades indicas, esto debido a que desde un principio los cultivares pertenecientes a esta subespecie mostraron ser de dificil manejo y poca respuesta al cultivo de tejidos, hasta el punto de ser llamados recalcitrantes (Tyagi y Mohanty, 2000; Cocking, 2000)
A FEW months ago, I bought a couple of Skimmia japonicas to add colourful berries to my autumn displays.
rice, where very narrow genetic bases, essentially all in japonicas, have evolved because of the need for adaptation to temperate climates and to specific grain quality requirements.
In rice stalk borer evaluations, the indicas ranged from 0.3 whiteheads per plot (resistant) to slightly susceptible levels of 10.3 whiteheads per plot, while the three japonicas ranged from 2.3 to 65.0 whiteheads per plot (Bernhardt and Rutger, 2004).
The hybrids of Camellia x williamsii offer a number of advantages over the Japonicas. They are much hardier, taller, produce more flowers and the blooms `die elegantly', falling off the shrub once finished instead of hanging around for all to see.
Rice cultivars are classified into two major subspecies, indica and japonica. The japonica subspecies is composed of two groups, the temperate japonicas and the tropical japonicas (sometimes referred to as javanicas).
Most southern cultivars are long-grain types that are considered tropical japonicas, but medium-grain temperate japonicas are grown on a smaller scale (Dilday, 1990; Mackill, 1995).
