  Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis was conducted on leaf protein extracts of Manihot esculenta and the wild relative, Manihot glaziovii. Manihot esculenta recorded the highest number of protein bands which might be from the past hybridizational processes which had taken place between it and the wild relatives, among which is Manihot glaziovii. In order to further increase the protein content of the edible Manihot esculenta, the two protein bands between 5.0 and 5.9 cm characteristic of Manihot glaziovii, as revealed in the rod gels, by electrophoresis, could be transferred to Manihot esculenta through hybridization. It is also possible that in the process, resistance to insects, diseases and drought may be transferred.

  Morphological features and nutritional composition were investigated in Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench and A. moschatus (Moench). The seedlings, raised naturally on the field in sandy loam soil were analysed for height, length of petiole, length and breadth of leaves, number of leaves per plant, number of buds and the fruits produced. Proximate analysis was also carried out to determine the chemical composition of the leaves as well as the fruits. The two okra species share similar attributes. Number of buds were positively correlated with fruit yield in A. esculentus. The basal portions of the fruit of both species are rich in carbohydrates and fibers. The leaves are rich in fats and crude protein.

  A vegetative and floral morphological study of the species of Annonaceae found in Nigeria was conducted in search of intergeneric characters that may be of taxonomic value in the identification and classification of the species. Life plants, fruits, flowers and seeds were studied from mature plants in the experimental garden. Both qualitative and quantitative characters were recorded. The intergeneric relationships among and between the species of Annonaceae were reported and similarly, additional features that may be of taxonomic value in the classification and identification in the family are apocarpy, syncarpy, phyllotaxy, monopody, sympody, fruit type and fruit shape have been provided.
