    The status of patenting plants in the Global South
    Correa, Carlos M. ; Correa, Juan I. ; Jonge, Bram De - \ 2020
    Journal of World Intellectual Property 23 (2020)1-2. - ISSN 1422-2213 - p. 121 - 146.
    developing countries - Global South - patents - plants - seed

    Over the last few decades, the number of patents on plants and plant parts has greatly increased in various parts of the world. Most research, however, has focused exclusively on developed countries—the United States and European Union states in particular—while little is known about the extent to which plants are being patented in other parts of the world. This article aims to fill this information gap by providing an overview of the status of patenting plants in the developing countries and emerging economies of the Global South. The research is based on the analysis of legal provisions, patentability guidelines, court decisions (where they exist) and a sample of patents granted in the countries selected for this study. The findings indicate that despite the flexibilities of the World Trade Organization Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights Agreement regarding the nonpatentability of plants, 60% of the 126 countries in the Global South for which data were available to allow for the patenting of plants or parts thereof, and many such patents have been identified. This situation warrants further reflection and, potentially, review of existing patent laws as developing countries search for ways of responding optimally to the needs of feeding a growing population while adapting to the challenges of climate change.

    The Arabidopsis receptor kinase STRUBBELIG undergoes clathrin-dependent endocytosis
    Gao, Jin ; Chaudhary, Ajeet ; Vaddepalli, Prasad ; Nagel, Marie Kristin ; Isono, Erika ; Schneitz, Kay - \ 2019
    Journal of Experimental Botany 70 (2019)15. - ISSN 0022-0957 - p. 3881 - 3894.
    Clathrin - endocytosis - endomembrane - plants - receptor kinase - STRUBBELIG - tissue morphogenesis - vesicular trafficking

    Signaling mediated by cell surface receptor kinases is central to the coordination of growth patterns during organogenesis. Receptor kinase signaling is in part controlled through endocytosis and subcellular distribution of the respective receptor kinase. For the majority of plant cell surface receptors, the underlying trafficking mechanisms are not characterized. In Arabidopsis, tissue morphogenesis requires the atypical receptor kinase STRUBBELIG (SUB). Here, we studied the endocytic mechanism of SUB. Our data revealed that a functional SUB-enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) fusion is ubiquitinated in vivo. We further showed that plasma membrane-bound SUB:EGFP becomes internalized in a clathrin-dependent fashion. We also found that SUB:EGFP associates with the trans-Golgi network and accumulates in multivesicular bodies and the vacuole. Co-immunoprecipitation experiments revealed that SUB:EGFP and clathrin are present within the same protein complex. Our genetic analysis showed that SUB and CLATHRIN HEAVY CHAIN (CHC) 2 regulate root hair patterning. By contrast, genetic reduction of CHC activity ameliorates the floral defects of sub mutants. Taken together, the data indicate that SUB undergoes clathrin-mediated endocytosis, that this process does not rely on stimulation of SUB signaling by an exogenous agent, and that SUB genetically interacts with clathrin-dependent pathways in a tissue-specific manner.

    Greenery: more than beauty and health : The positive effects of greenery in urban environments

    Greenery in our living environment benefits more than just our health and well-being. It also facilitates water management and promotes biodiversity in built-up areas, and can help reduce the effects of noise pollution. Greenery also helps to raise the property value of homes and offices. This document provides general information on the benefits of greenery, and complements the detailed fact sheets on how greenery can improve health and well-being in Residential, Professional, Educational and Healthcare contexts.

    De groene agenda: Ontwerptool Groene Gezonde Stad
    Snep, Robbert - \ 2017

    De Ontwerptool Groene Gezonde Stad is een tool in ontwikkeling die het effectief gebruik van stadsgroen door planners, ontwerpers, ontwikkelaars, hoveniers en groenvoorzieners ten behoeve van maatschappelijke doelstellingen (gezonde woon-/werk-/leefomgeving) moet stimuleren. De plek die groen nu inneemt in het proces is redelijk achteraan. Het doel is dat planners, ontwerpers, ontwikkelaars, grondeigenaren etc. het groen meenemen in het ontwerpproces. Dan wordt de vraag naar groen en de kwaliteit van groen ook beter. Professionals krijgen met via de tool beter inzicht in waar en welk groen welk gezondheidseffect op welk doelgroep heeft, en worden daarmee uitgenodigd die kennis te benutten in hun plannen en projecten. Dit levert een gezondere stedelijke samenleving op, en maakt dat de economische waarde van het groen duidelijker wordt meegenomen in de besluitvorming over de inrichting en het beheer van de stad.

    Ecosysteemdiensten van bomen en groen in de stad

    Groen kost geld en de baten zijn slecht tastbaar. Het project 'Ecosysteemdiensten van boomkwekerijproducten' ontwikkelt instrumenten om de voordelen van groen beter te laten meewegen bij het nemen van beslissingen. Voordelen: verkoeling, luchtzuivering, waterberging en beleefbare biodiversiteit. In eerste instantie voor de productgroep bomen, later ook voor andere productgroepen.
