Short-living plants found

Biology researchers from Khon Kaen University have discovered 18 new 18 short-living plants, and they are studying their medicinal properties, biology lecturer Prof Dr Pranom Jantharanothai said Saturday.

The newly discovered plants - three in the Piperaceae family and four in the Xyridaceae family - were found in Buengkal, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Loei, Sakhon Nakhon. And most live only for one season, he said.

Researchers would study the plants' properties, which could take up to 10 years.
