Data from: Odontochilus napoensis sp. nov. (Orchidoideae: Orchidaceae) from southwestern Guangxi, ChinaHuan Tang, Hui-Zhe Feng & Yun-Feng Huang
Odontochilus napoensis, a new species from southwestern Guangxi, China, is described and illustrated. It is close to Odontochilus inabae (Hayata) T. P. Lin, but can be distinguished by its glabrous ovary, solitary flower, and 2.0–3.5 mm long filaments of flanges. It is also similar to O. nanlingensis (L. P. Siu & K. Y. Lang) Ormerod, but differs by the solitary, not resupinate flower, and light greenish–brown lateral sepals.
Data from: Little white lies: pericarp color provides insights into the origins and evolution of Southeast Asian weedy riceYongxia Cui, Beng Kah Song, Lin-Feng Li, Ya-Ling Li, Zhongyun Huang, Ana L. Caicedo, Yulin Jia & Kenneth M. Olsen
Weedy rice is a conspecific form of cultivated rice (Oryza sativa L.) that infests rice fields and results in severe crop losses. Weed strains in different world regions appear to have originated multiple times from different domesticated and/or wild rice progenitors. In the case of Malaysian weedy rice, a multiple-origin model has been proposed based on neutral markers and analyses of domestication genes for hull color and seed shattering. Here we examined variation in pericarp...
