Microscopic observation for the major tissue types in both cassava types. In domesticated cassava, CO 2 exchange rate expressed per unit mass and specific leaf area (SLA, m 2 /kg dry mass) were greater than in the wild relative, whereas leaf dry matter content (LDMC, dry mass/fresh mass) was lower in the domesticate. National Nature Science Foundation of China (NSFC grant number 31271776). Second, protein content varies according to tissue type and age across the central cylinder by decreasing from layer 3 to layer 4 to layer 5 (Figure 9B). Cassava leaves are an important source of protein and vitamins in many local diets. Treating diarrhea. The flesh ranges from bright white to soft yellow. From the basic secondary growth of CSR shown in Figure 4, it is possible to recognize at least 12 cell types in the storage root associated to secondary tissues including primary meristem cells, secondary meristem cells, vessels, primary xylem, secondary xylem, primary phloem, secondary phloem, parenchyma cells, sclerenchyma, and epidermal cells. By Luiz JCB Carvalho, Josefino F. Filho, James V. Anderson, Priscila G. Figueiredo and Songbi Chen, Submitted: May 31st 2017Reviewed: September 28th 2017Published: December 28th 2017. We previously reported in vitro induction of tetraploids in the cassava variety “Xinxuan 048” using colchicine. Polyploidy breeding of cassava has been used to improve cassava traits over the past years. In this chapter, we review our comprehensive studies related to (CSR) morphology, storage root (SR) formation, SR physiology (growth analysis, development and maturation), anatomy/histology (secondary growth), and biochemical (carbohydrate, carotenoids, proteins, and gene expression) characteristics as secondary growth proceeds in order to understand yield of CSR. 81 Z:\Customer\CABI\A4101 - Hillocks - Cassava\A4212 - Hillocks - Cassava #R.vp Monday, February 04, 2002 11:21:54 AM Color profile: Disabled Composite Default screen As the cork expands outward, the endodermis, cortex, and epidermis die and peel off. The cyanide-generating potential of cassava roots and leaves has been of considerable concern. Information on yield losses due to diseases are often based on estimates but observations indicate that losses are significant in most of the cassava … Cassava leaf 300 7.6 3,000 0.25 0.60 2.4 310 Amaranth leaf 410 8.9 2,300 0.05 0.42 1.2 50 Soybean 185 6.1 28 0.71 0.25 2.0 0 Maize (yellow) 13 4.9 125 0.32 0.12 1.7 4 Source: West et al., 1988. Help us write another book on this subject and reach those readers. Some morphological and agronomic characteristics of roots and their variability in cassava. Cross-sections of the samples were used for cellular morphology studies. While secondary xylem peels, as well as vessels decrease with DAP, the secondary xylem and secondary parenchyma cells increases. Three groups of Wistar rats were used. Variation in total protein content of storage roots (mg/gDWt) in relation to four categories of central cylinder color genotypes (A) and tissue age (B). The other secondary meristem, the cambium, lies between the primary xylem and the primary phloem. To date our community has made over 100 million downloads. The results showed that the phenotypic performance was different on the type of plant, the morphology of leaves, stems, and tubers of local cassava of Bangka. While diet A contained no cassava (Manihot esculenta) leaf meal (CLM) and served as the control, diets B, C and D contained 15.0, 22.5 and 25.0% CLM, respectively. The cassava leaf extract was obtained from the leaves which were sun dried for 10 days before being ground to powder form in order to increase the surface area for extraction. Boil 7 cassava leaves in 4 cups of water till the 2 cups remains. Cassava storage roots grow in length from the apical meristem forming new cells continually, as generally observed in other plants carrying root secondary growth. The overall chemical composition of CSR has recently been reviewed [1]. Discovery of three putative mutants in the CSR. In domesticated cassava, CO 2 exchange rate expressed per unit mass and specific leaf area (SLA, m 2 /kg dry mass) were greater than in the wild relative, whereas leaf dry matter content (LDMC, dry mass/fresh mass) was lower in the domesticate. Cassava tubers have low protein content (0.7% to 1.3% fresh weight (Ngiki et al., 2014)).The protein content of cassava flour, peels and leaves is also low at approximately 3.6%, 5.5% and 21% respectively (Iyayi and Losel, 2001).Cassava based diets must therefore be supplemented with methionine and lysine (Tewe and Egbunike, 1992). Ceiba were influenced by seasonal changes in temperature. Cassava root meal is rich in carbohydrate but low in protein and all other nutrients, whereas, cassava leaf meal is a moderate source of protein. In the French speaking parts of Cameroon, it is disguised as Nwem – a more rustic version of this dish sometimes made with fresh corn, palm oil, with or without salt (Kwem sans sel). Plants were grown at EMBRAPA Cerrados (Latitude 15°35,769°) (Longitude 47°42,664°), and (Altitude 977 m) for a crop season of up to 170 days after planting (DAP). ... Genetic architecture of leaf morphology traits showed that one to three major loci control them, indicating simple genetic architecture. Studies on secondary growth of cassava storage root (CSR) are rare, incomplete, and to a certain extent, missing. Light mediates a number of responses including leaf growth and development which are important factors in the deployment of stress tolerance mechanisms and manifestations such as the stay green trait. Storage root growth and development parameters of an early (cv. The anatomy of cassava storage root was first described by Rateaver [7] and more recently at [6]. Protein and amino acids. The nutritional value of cassava is similar to a potato. A leaf morphology trait (TO:0000748) which is the variation in shapes and forms of a leaf (PO:0025034). Three types of meristematic cell differentiations occur as secondary growth proceeds; one due to cork cambium with plane perpendicularly oriented cell division, second due to plane longitudinally oriented cell division in the root apex, and third longitudinally oriented in the epidermal cells. Ceiba were influenced by seasonal changes in temperature. Available from: An Overview of Their Processing and Utilization, starch accumulation rate (starch gram/root/day), fiber accumulation rate (fiber gram/root/day), EMBRAPA Genetic Resources and Biotechnology, Brasilia-DF, Brazil, USDA-ARS, Sunflower and Plant Biology Research Unit, Fargo, ND, USA, Tropical Crops Genetic Resources Institute, Chinese Academy of Tropical Agricultural (CATAS), Hainan, China. In the case of cassava, until now, vibratome sectioning has been coupled with immunohistochemical staining to circumscribe the site of infection of cassava brown streak virus and to investigate its effect in the cassava leaf morphology (Saggaf et al., 2019). Histological characterizations can be used to identify cell types of primary and secondary meristems, procambium, vascular cambium, phellogen, phelloderm, primary and secondary xylem and phloem, storage parenchyma and sclerenchyma. (B) Refers to vessels and parenchyma cells in secondary xylem. How? Kulakow/Parkes/Aina Source of storage root from cassava planting material. You can change your ad preferences anytime. Divergent leaf shapes among Passiflora species arise from a shared juvenile morphology Genetic architecture and molecular networks underlying leaf thickness in desert-adapted tomato Solanum pennellii Heritability of the Structures and 13C Fractionation in Tomato Leaf Wax Alkanes: A Genetic Model System to Inform Paleoenvironmental Reconstructions Luiz JCB Carvalho, Josefino F. Filho, James V. Anderson, Priscila G. Figueiredo and Songbi Chen (December 28th 2017). Carbohydrate composition, content, and genetic variation: Sugary cassava is a unusual SR phenotype as observed in Figure 2 (Panel B) for the cross session of SR stained with iodine solution, cells morphology, free sugar composition, and sucrose/glucose content in relation to normal genotypes and SR tissue age [3]. The improvement of morphological traits has to be achieved by means of conventional breeding methods. Low in Calories - 100 grams of cooked cassava leaves only contains about 37 calories making it … Cassava root and leaves are eaten as food. Incorporation of those genetic variants in a conventional breeding program, which reduced the time for obtain new commercial varieties. 982) and late season (cv.436) harvest time in cassava crop. Cassava Morphological Characteristics Importance of Cassava cassava breeding approach importance of cassava trait evaluation at different breeding stages. However, cassava contains chemicals called cyanogenic glycosides. Additionally, cassava germplasm exhibits diverse leaf shapes ranging from ovoid lobes to linear forms (Fukuda et al. 4. Changes in proportion distribution of tissue and cells type in cassava storage roots as secondary growth proceeds. Cassava (Manihot esculenta, Crantz) is considered a starchy root crop that provides staple food for millions of people in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Carotenoid biosynthesis, accumulation, and genetic diversity: Landraces diversities (Figure 2 (Panel B)) have been studied to understand carotenoid biosynthesis [6, 12] mechanisms of carotenoid accumulation [1, 7, 13], identification of mutants [13], and breeding commercial varieties [2]. Moreover, the composition of stored starch varies with tissue age across the central cylinder and may be used as a physiological indicator for bulk storage root maturation and storage root harvest time. The sampling tissue system based on tissue age, as discussed above, could improve the accuracy of quantification of total carotenoid content for this propose. See our User Agreement and Privacy Policy. Licensee IntechOpen. Group A served as the control treated with 0.3 ml of normal saline, while groups B and C served as the experimental groups. T, X, and B indicate leaf position; top, middle, and bottom leaves, respectively. Diversity of cassava storage root in the central cylinder (edible part) related to carotenoid types and content (Panel A) and carbohydrate types as stained with iodine solution (Panel B). A leaf morphology trait (TO:0000748) which is the variation in shapes and forms of a leaf (PO:0025034). Cross-sections of the samples were used for cellular morphology studies. Growth morphology • Sprouting stage (5-15 DAP): First adventitious roots from the buds under the soil within 1 week of planting (5-7 DAP), small leaves emergence at 10- 12 DAP and full leaf emergence achieved at 15 DAP • Leaf development and root system formation stage (15-90 DAP): leaves expansion with the initiation of photosynthetic process (30 DAP), growth of fibrous roots begins to … By Velayudhan Santhakumari Santosh Mithra, A.R. Cassava (Manihot esculenta, Crantz) is a starchy root crop that provides a staple food source for millions of people in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. The major differences occurring are early harvest time for the fresh consumption genotype (cv. Our readership spans scientists, professors, researchers, librarians, and students, as well as business professionals. Storage root morphology varies in shape from cylindrical to globular. The edible roots of the plant are usually cylindrical and tapered and are white, brown or reddish in color. Chapter 5 (Page no: 67) Cassava botany and physiology. Features of cassava storage root and its importance ranked in association with practical utilization by mankind. A study was conducted in Hawaii, USA, to examine how patterns of leaf area development, plant growth, and root production of cassava cv. In the case of cassava, until now, vibratome sectioning has been coupled with immunohistochemical staining to circumscribe the site of infection of cassava brown streak virus and to investigate its effect in the cassava leaf morphology (Saggaf et al., 2019). Tylosis formation is observed only in sugary genotype. By making research easy to access, and puts the academic needs of the researchers before the business interests of publishers. In addition to the primary tissues (Figure 4F), cassava storage root has secondary tissues that add thickness to a primary root (Figure 4B–E). Three continents, Africa, Asia and Latin America produce large amounts of cassava roots. Cassava leaf soup also known as saka saka or pondu is a simple, yet tasty and substantial soup that is widely consumed in many parts of Central Africa especially in countries like Sierra Leone, and Liberia.. 2.3. An illustration of three cassava (variety Kibandameno) leaf samples infected with Cassava brown streak virus (A–C); and two leaves from disease-free samples (D–E). The cassava plant is a perennial woody shrub that grows from about one to three meters in height. Cassava Breeding Unit, IITA. Our team is growing all the time, so we’re always on the lookout for smart people who want to help us reshape the world of scientific publishing. This chapter focus on the identification of spontaneous mutations in two biochemical pathways (sucrose/starch conversion and carotenoid biosynthesis), as well as mechanisms of carotenoid and proteins accumulation, and gene expression analysis. The SR maturation (physiological maturation), as taken by the rate of CSR growth, starch accumulation, and crude fiber accumulation, and crude fiber/starch ratio vary in relation to conventional utilization of the crop (Table 3). Based on these observations, from fibrous root, we defined six stages of CSR growth (Figure 4G). Storage root tissues distinctions are observed. Looks like you’ve clipped this slide to already. However, they are poor in protein and other nutrients. (A) refers to the initial fiber root; (B) refers to the initial pro cambium differentiation in fibrous root with pericycle dedifferentiation; (C) refers to the early events of secondary growth initiation; (D) refers to the complete secondary tissue formation with mature vessels; (E) refers to full secondary tissue formation; (F) refers to primary growth in fibrous root; and (G) defined six stages of storage root formation based on SR diameter. The cone-shaped roots are starch storage organs covered with a papery bark and a pink to white cortex. CSR generally forms up to 12–14 storage root (SR) per plant, which can originate from three sources of propagating plant materials as well as being induced in vivo and in vitro. The leaves are palmate (hand-shaped) and dark green in color. The studies discussed in this chapter highlight the importance of natural variation in landraces previously unknown for the cassava community in several ways.
