TL;DR: The botany of more than 50 species of herbs and shrubs belonging to this genus is thoroughly reported, along with traditional uses and cultivation techniques, as well as the application of biotechnology for the clonal micropropagation of basil lines with improved traits and the use of basil tissue culture for the derivation of valuable compounds.
Abstract: The present review focuses on the various Ocimum species, often referred to as the “king of the herbs.” The botany of more than 50 species of herbs and shrubs belonging to this genus is thoroughly reported, along with traditional uses and cultivation techniques. Since basil is a rich source of natural compounds, details on the several chemical constituents of essential oil, plant parts and derived food and medical products, such as monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, phenylpropanoids, anthocyanins, and phenolic acids, as well as their effect on sensory qualities are included. Furthermore, particular emphasis is given to the application of biotechnology for the clonal micropropagation of basil lines with improved traits and the use of basil tissue culture for the derivation of valuable compounds, such as antioxidant phenolics and essential oil components.

TL;DR: Histological studies revealed that the soluble gel fraction prevents lesion formation and is effective as ranitidine, showing that fenugreek seeds possess antiulcer potential.
Abstract: The effect of fenugreek seeds (Trigonella foenum graecum) compared with ranitidine was studied on aspirin-induced gastric ulcer. The gel fraction isolated from the seeds showed significant ulcer protective effect. The cytoprotective effect of the seeds seemed to be not only due to the anti-secretory action but also due to the effects on mucosal glycoproteins. The fenugreek seed gel also prevented the rise in lipid peroxidation induced by aspirin presumably by enhancing antioxidant potential of the gastric mucosa thereby lowering mucosal injury. Histological studies revealed that the soluble gel fraction prevents lesion formation and is effective as ranitidine. These observations show that fenugreek seeds possess antiulcer potential.

TL;DR: In this article, changes in plant growth and development, micronutrient accumulation, and essential oil yield and composition were studied in Japanese mint growing under selected water stresses from deficiency to sufficiency.
Abstract: Changes in plant growth and development, micronutrient accumulation, and essential oil yield and composition were studied in Japanese mint (Mentha arvensis L. cv. MS 77) growing under selected water stresses from deficiency to sufficiency. Water stress resulted in significant reductions in CO2 exchange rate, total assimilatory area, fresh and dry matter, chlorophyll, carotenoids, Fe, Mn, Zn, and essential oil yield. Some changes in essential oil composition were observed, but these changes generally were not correlated with water stress.

TL;DR: The plant could be cultivated in Hungary and a 25 to 30 ha field has been established, but since the plant is dioecious, male plants should be interplanted among a larger female population.
Abstract: Possible production of sea buckthorn, Hippophae rhamnoides L., in Hungary was investigated by field tests of selected cultivars and organoleptical tests of berries. Disease resistance, ease of harvest, chemical composition, and morphological habits of cultivars were studied in comparison to a wild population of sea buckthorn. The plant could be cultivated in Hungary and a 25 to 30 ha field has been established. Since the plant is dioecious, male plants should be interplanted among a larger female population. Yields are 3 to 4 tons of fruit per ha.
