Dan očarljivih rastlin

V letu 2019 bo potekal peti mednarodni in že osmi slovenski Dan očarljivih rastlin (Fascination of Plants Day) v svetovnem merilu pod okriljem Evropske organizacije za znanosti o rastlinah (European Plant Science Organisation, EPSO).

Cilj tega dogodka je navdušiti čim več ljudi za rastline ter povečati zavedanje o pomenu znanosti o rastlinah za agronomijo in trajnostno pridelavo zdrave hrane, kot tudi za gozdarstvo, vrtnarstvo in proizvodnjo ne prehranskih proizvodov, kot so zdravila, les, papir, kemikalije in energija, ter za ohranjanje narave.

 

Dobrodošli, da se nam pridružite!

handsonactivities presentation

Na stojnici bomo na interaktiven način prikazali raznovrstnost semen/plodov različnih kmetijskih rastlin, posebej zrnja žit. Osvetlili bomo, da se lahko po izgledu podobno zrnje različnih vrst, križancev in sort pomembno razlikuje v biokemičnih lastnostih, pomembnih za uporabo. Pri tem bomo posebej opozorili na lastnosti pšenice in rži, ter njunega križanca tritikale, s katero se je ukvarjal tudi slovenski botanik Fran Jesenko.

 

Diversity of seeds/fruits of agricultural plants, especially cereal grains, will be interactively presented. We will highlight that the biochemical composition of grains with similar morphology can substantially differ. The properties of wheat, rye and their hybrid triticale, which was breeded by slovenian botanist Fran Jesenko, will be exposed.

About the role of turgor in plants
O pomenu turgorja za delovanje rastlin
Biološko središče, Večna pot 111, Ljubljana
Students
Outdoor
handsonactivities presentation

Za rastlinske celice je značilen turgor, tlak, ki celično membrano pritiska ob celično steno. Povezan je z vsebnostjo vode, pa tudi z vsebnostjo topljencev. Pri zelnatih rastlinah se nezadosten turgor odraža v venenju. Zmanjšanje turgorja pa vpliva tudi na druge procese v rastlinah.

 

Turgor pressure is the force within the cell that pushes the plasma membrane against the cell wall. It is related with cell water content, but depends also on solute concentration. In herbaceous plants the turgor loss is manifested in wilting. A decrease of turgor, however, influences many other processes in plants.

Students
Outdoor
handsonactivities presentation

Posebej pri visokih rastlinah, drevesih, predstavlja dvig vode iz korenin v najvišje dele za rastlino zahtevno nalogo. Kakšne sile so potrebne za ta transport in kakšne morajo biti strukturne prilagoditve rastlinskih tkiv, da je prevajanje vode učinkovito?

 

In tall plants, especially trees, the transport of water to the leaves represents a challange. What are the forces needed for the ascent of sap? What are the structural adaptations of conductive tissues which enable efficient water transport?

Pogled v mikroskop bo udeležencem delavnice razkril, kako so rastline zgrajene in kje se pretakajo njihovi sokovi. Preko aktivnosti na delavnici bodo udeleženci razumeli uporabno vrednost rastlin in spoznali, da je pogled v rastline pogled v osnovne zakonitosti življenja. Z opazovanjem različne zgradbe rastline bomo udeležence spodbujali k razmišljanju, kako različna zgradba pomaga rastlinam pri prilaganju na različne okoljske dejavnike in tako pomaga rastlinam preživeti.

 

The view in the microscope will reveal to the workshop participants how the plants are built and where their juices are streamed. Through activity at the workshop, participants will understand the useful value of the plant and realize that the view in the plants is a glimpse of the basic legality of life. By observing the various buildings of the plant, we will encourage participants to think about how the different structure helps plants to attach to different environmental factors and thus help the plants survive.

Veliko rastlin je v evoluciji razvilo različne strukture za privabljanje živali. Od barvitih in dišečih cvetov, ki privabljajo žuželke, da jih oprašijo, do barvitih in sočnih plodov, ki privabljajo živali, da raznesejo semena. Zakaj pa bi rastline potrebovale liste, ki imajo lepljive izločke ali pa vrčke polne tekočine?

 

Through evolution, many plants have developed different structures to attract animals. From colorful and fragrant flowers that attract insects to pollinate them to colorful and juicy fruits that attract animals to spread the seeds. But why should plants need sticky leaves or leaves with pitchers full of fluids?

Murve so danes številnim ljudem neznane, medtem ko se starejši prebivalci nekdanjih svilogojskih regij spominjajo obiranja plodov in žetve listov za krmo sviloprejkam. Le-te se namreč hranijo izključno z listi bele murve. Svila, ki se pridobiva iz kokonov sviloprejke, je bila v avstro-ogrski monarhiji cenjeno naravno vlakno. Večstoletne murve, ki so se ohranile v Sloveniji so živi spomeniki nekdaj aktivnega svilogojstva. Na stojnici bomo predstavili razširjenost, sistematiko in potencial uporabe murv. Predstavili bomo načine pridelave murv, žetev listov, izleganje jajčec in razvoj gosenic sviloprejk do svilenih zapredkov. Ta veličastna drevesa rodijo sladke bele, rožnate ali črne sadeže, ki po videzu spominjajo na robide, in se jih da predelat v marmelade, sokove in žganje. Na stojnici bodo na ogled sviloprejke, izdelki iz murv in svile kot potencial vsestranske uporabe tega drevesa.

 

Nowadays, mulberries are unknown to many people, while the older inhabitants of the former sericultural regions remind of the picking mulberry fruits and harvesting leaves for silkworm rearing as they are the silkworms preferred food. Silk was a valued natural fibre in the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. Centuries-old mulberry trees are living monuments of the former sericultural activities. We will present the origin, systematics and potential use of mulberry trees as well as how these mulberry trees are associated with the production of silk thread. Different mulberry production techniques, leaf harvest, and silkworm cycle will be presented from egg hatching up to cocoon development. These magnificent trees bear sweet white, pink or black fruits that remind of blackberries and can be processed into jam, juice and brandy. We will present the silkworms as well as various niche products out of silk and different mulberry parts.

Rastline proizvajajo številne hlapne substance, ki imajo različne vloge: privabljajo opraševalce, omogočajo komunikacijo z drugimi rastlinami, odganjajo rastlinojedce in druge škodljivce ali privabljajo naravne sovražnike škodljivcev. Na delavnici bomo predstavili različne rastlinske vonjave in kemijske strukture njihovih glavnih komponent ter jih poskusili iz rastlin izolirati. Predstavili bomo tudi kemijsko sorodne spojine, ki jih sicer proizvajajo žuželke, jih pa vseeno lahko proizvajamo tudi v rastlinah. Gre za žuželčje feromone, ki in jih, kljub temu, da jim ljudje sploh ne zaznamo, lahko koristno uporabimo. Delavnica bo izvedena v okviru ERACoBioTech projekta SUSPHIRE, ki ga v sofinancira MIZŠ.

 

Plants produce many volatile substances with different biological roles: to attract pollinators, communicate with other plants, repulse herbivores and other pests or to attract their pests’ enemies. With our workshop, we will explore different plant fragrances and the chemical structures of their main components, which we will also try to isolate from plants. Additionally, we will talk about a group of chemically related substances that are synthesized by insects, but can also be produced in plants. They are insect pheromones, which we humans cannot detect, but can still be useful for us. The workshop will be realized within ERACoBioTech project SUSHIRE, cofinanced by MIZŠ (Ministry of Education, Science and Sport).

Ko omenimo prvo pomladansko sadje, ki ga vsi komaj čakamo, govorimo seveda o jagodah. Popolnoma dozorele jagode so živo rdeče barve, posute z drobnimi semeni. Ko vanje zagrizemo, se vzbudijo vsi naši čuti. Začutimo sladkobo, ki ji kislina odvzame osladnost, in popolno kombinacijo arom, ki krasno povežejo celoto v slasten okus. Med raznimi sortami in vrstami jagod so lahko velika odstopanja, tako po videzu kot v okusu. Na stojnici Kmetijskega inštituta Slovenije bodo udeleženci lahko ocenjevali lastnosti različnih jagod. Izmerili bomo kako sladke so (refraktometer), opazovali barvo in obliko plodov ter jih seveda poskusili, da bodo vsa čutila potrdila rezultate instrumentalnih meritev.

 

When we are talking about the first fruit to ripen in spring we are talking about strawberries. Fully matured strawberries are coloured in bright red, covered with tiny seeds and when we taste them, all our senses are buzzing. We feel the sweetness and sourness at the same time and the perfect combination of aroma beautifully connects the whole fruit with a delicious flavour. However, there are great variations between varieties and types of strawberries, both in visual appearance and taste. At the stand of the Agricultural Institute of Slovenia participants will explore the characteristics of various strawberries. We will measure how sweet they are (refractometer), observe the colour and shape of the fruit, and of course let our senses confirm the results of instrumental measurements by tasting them.

Šotna barja so redek in ogrožen ekosistem v Sloveniji. V svoji prvotni podobi jih najdemo le še na območju Jelovice, Pohorja in Pokljuke. Nastala so iz nekdanjih ledeniških jezerc. Na delavnici bomo s pomočjo makete spoznali lastnosti šotnih barij, značilne rastlinske vrste in ekološke posebnosti. Izmerili bomo pH, poskusili barjansko vodo ter občutili mehkobo šotnega mahu.

 

Peat bogs are rare and endangered ecosystems in Slovenia. It their prestine form we can find them only on Jelovica, Pohorje and Pokljuka. The process of bog creation started after the last glaciation period. On the workshop you will find out about the characteristics of peat bogs, their typical plants and the ecological importance of bogs.

Na delavnici bodo udeleženci spoznali tri vrste invazivnih tujerodnih rastlin, ki jih najdemo na območju Mestne občine Ljubljana. Iz teh treh vrst smo v okviru projekta Applause izdelali papir. Udeleženci bodo spoznali metodo ročne izdelave papirja. Delavnica bo izvedena v okviru projekta Applause.

 

Participants of the workshop will learn about three species of invasive alien plants found within City of Ljubljana. Within project Applause we made paper out of the biomass of these species. Participants will learn about production of handmade paper. Workshop within project Applause.

handsonactivities presentation

Mahovi so kljub vsesplošni razširjenosti, vrstni pestrosti in ekološki pomembnosti ena izmed najbolj spregledanih rastlinskih skupin. Zato bomo na dnevu očarljivih rastlin predstavili šotne mahove. Ti mahovi lahko vsrkajo zelo velike količine vode, kar jim omogoča preživetje v zelo posebnih okoljih. S tehtanjem bomo ugotovili, koliko vode vpijejo, s pomočjo mikroskopa pa si bomo ogledali, kam se vsa ta voda shrani.

 

In spite of their widespread distribution, their diversity and ecological importance, mosses are one of the most overlooked plant groups. Therefore, on Fascination of Plants Day, we will present peat mosses. These mosses can absorb very large amounts of water, which allows them to survive in very special environments. By weighing we will find out how much water the plants absorb, and the microscope view will reveal, where in the moss tissue this water is stored.

Ljudje v svoje okolje prinašamo najrazličnejše rastline, recimo za okras. Včasih se kake tuje vrste v velikem številu in nekontrolirano razširijo. Takim rastlinam rečemo, da so invazivne in lahko močno ogrožajo okolje in naravo. Na naši stojnici boste spoznali invazivne rastline v Sloveniji in njihov negativen učinek na ekosisteme.

 

People like to bring all kinds of plants into our enviorment, for decoration for example. In some cases these foreign species spread uncontrolably and in great numbers. We call those plants invasive and they can pose a big threat to the neviorment and nature. On our stand you will be able to get to know the invasive plants of Slovenia and their negative affect on ecosystems.

Na svetu uspeva več kot štiristo tisoč različnih rastlin. Koliko bi jih posameznik znal prepoznati? Udeležence prireditve bodo prisotni ob stojnicah popeljali skozi spoznavni zeleni svet različnih zelišč, začimbnic in semen. Slednji bodo na neposreden način prebujali v obiskovalcih zavedanje o vrednosti zelenega sveta in njegovega ohranjanja.

 

More than four hundred thousand different plants grow in the world. How much could an individual recognize? Participants of the event will be present at the stands along the familiar green world of various herbs, seasonings and seeds. The latter will in a direct way wake up in the visitors’ awareness of the value of the green world and its preservation.

Z delavnico želimo predstaviti moderno rastlinsko biotehnologijo in možnosti njene uporabe. Rebrinčevolistna hladnikovka ali hladnikija (Hladnikia plastinacifolia Rchb.) je ledenodobna endemična vrsta in zato zavarovana in situ  in ex situ. Ex situ jo ohranjajo v botaničnem vrtu v Ljubljani v obliki zbirke semen in rastlin. V tkivni kulturi jo ohranjamo tudi na Univerzi v Maribor, kjer razvijamo postopke za dolgoročno hrambo s pomočjo krioprezervacije. Na delavnici boste spoznali, kako lahko to vrsto ohranjamo s pomočjo alginatnih kapsul (inkapsulacije).

 

The aim of workshoop is to introduce the modern plant biotechnology and possibilities of its usage. Hladnikia plastinacifolia Rchb. is a paleoendemic species protected in situ and ex situ. Botanical garden in Ljubljana takes care for its ex situ as whole plant and seed collection. At the University of Maribor it is protected as tissue culture collection and included in development of protocols for its long-term storage by cryopreservation. At the workshop you will find out, how to preserve this species with the help of alginate beads (encapsulation).
