Projects in area: PLANT EXTRACTS

New plants and plant extracts to decrease methane and nitrogenous emissions from ruminants and to alleviate nutritional stress
RUMEN-UP - (QLRT-2000-00992)
Bloat and acidosis are distressing disorders that result from a malfunction of microbial digestion in the rumen. Methane, a potent greenhouse gas, and ammonia, which forms urinary urea, arise from normal rumen fermentation. The aim is to develop new plants or plant extracts as dietary supplements for ruminants to replace chemical additives and growth-promoting ... More (full abstract).

Establishing cryopreservation methods for conserving European plant germplasm collections
CRYMCEPT - (QLRT-2001-01279)
About 20 000 plant species are believed to be either endangered or rare and threatened with extinction. Their preservation is essential for classical and modern plant breeding programmes, and this biodiversity is a source of compounds for the pharmaceutical, food and crop protection industries. Conventionally, germplasm is conserved through seeds, ... More (full abstract).

Integrating foraging attributes of domestic livestock breeds into sustainable systems for grassland biodiversity and wider countryside benefit
FORBIOBEN - (QLRT-1999-30130)
The purpose of this project is to identify sustainable grazing management practices for maintaining and enhancing biodiverse grasslands. The effects of the management system (targeted at production or at biodiversity) and animal breed (commercial or rustic) on the botanical, structural and invertebrate biodiversity will be quantified and the socio-economic ...

Improved procedures for flatfish larval rearing through the use of probiotic bacteria
PROBE - (QLRT-1999-31457)
Six partners will pursue a new, coordinated and systematic approach to improve the rearing of larval turbot using biological, non-antibiotic-dependent measures of disease control. Four different approaches will be applied to select probiotic bacteria (those that prevent the harmful effects of disease-causing microorganisms) from a large number of isolates ...
