Nguồn gốc, đặc điểm
Banabá (Bằng lăng nước) là tên gọi theo tiếng Tagalog (dân tộc lớn nhất Philippines) của loài cây đặc thù của Ấn Độ. Loài này có nguồn gốc từ vùng nhiệt đới Nam Á, hiện có nhiều ở Đông Nam Á, Ấn Độ và các vùng nhiệt đới khác. Thân cây thẳng và khá nhẵn nhụi. Lá màu xanh lục, dài từ 8 đến 15 cm, rộng từ 3 đến 7 cm, hình oval hoặc elip, rụng theo mùa. Hoa màu tím hoặc tím nhạt, mọc thành chùm dài từ 20 đến 40 cm, thường thấy vào giữa mùa hè. Mỗi bông hoa có 6 cánh, mỗi cánh dài chừng 2 đến 3,5 cm. Quả lúc tươi màu tím nhạt pha xanh lục, mềm. Quả già có đường kính 1,5 đến 2 cm, khô trên cây.
Sử dụng
Bằng lăng nước là loài bằng lăng hoa tím ở vùng nhiệt đới đã được dùng trong Đông y ở Châu Mỹ, An Độ, Philippnes,… để trị bệnh tiểu đường. Lá láng bóng loài bằng lăng này chứa Colosolic acid ở mức cao (Colosolic acid là một hóa chất thực vật nổi tiếng làm hạ mức đường trong máu). Trong Y học truyền thống châu Á dùng lá bằng lăng nước làm nước trà để trị đau bao tử và bệnh tiểu đường. Các chất trích ly được thương mại hóa đôi khi cũng được dùng làm bớt mập phì. Chất trích lá bằng lăng nước thường tìm thấy trong các thuốc bổ sung đa thành phần để làm giảm cân, tỉ như Cortislim. Nồng lượng thay đổi tuỳ sản phẩm bán, nhưng thường chứa vài milligram đến vài tá milligram một ngày. Lá bằng lăng nước khó kiếm hơn nhưng được bán dưới dạng nước trích lỏng hoặc thể viên.
Loài bằng lăng cho bóng mát và cho hoa đẹp nên được trồng làm hoa cảnh. Thật ra ngoài hoa tím còn có hoa các màu đậm, lợt trắng, hồng, đỏ, tím,… và cuối thu nhiều giống cũng rụng lá vàng, lá đỏ như cây phong xứ lạnh. Vài giống lùn, lùm bụi, cũng được chọn làm cây kiểng, mùa hoa nở đầy chậu. Cây gỗ lớn cao đến 20m, phân cành cao, thẳng, tán dày, lá hình bầu dục hay hình giáo dài, cụm hoa hình tháp ở ngọn các cành, mọc thẳng, nụ hoa hình cầu, hoa lớn có 6 cánh, có móng ngắn, răng reo màu tím hồng. Cây mọc khỏe, thân thẳng, tán cao, cây trồng chủ yếu bằng hạt, ươm gieo như các cây khác.
Trồng trọt
Đất trồng cây Bằng lăng phải có tầng đất mặt tơi xốp, dễ thoát nước, nếu đất có độ pH thấp, cần bón vôi thêm. Trước khi trồng tiến hành đào hố trước ít nhất 1 tháng, kích thước hố và lượng phân bón lót tùy thuộc vào đất giàu hoặc nghèo dinh dưỡng, thông thường 50 x 50 x 50cm, trộn đều lớp đất mặt với phân hữu cơ, NPK, phân bón lót, phân lân, vôi …… Sau đó dồn hỗn hợp đất phân cho xuống hố. Công việc trên cần thực hiện trước khi trồng cây ít nhất là 1/2 tháng.
Cây được trồng vào đầu mùa mưa (tháng 5, 6) và được trồng dặm trước tháng 9 hàng năm. Mật độ trồng thích hợp từ 500 đến 834 cây/ha. Cây cách cây 3 mét, hàng cách hàng 4 mét, hoặc cây cách cây 4 mét, hàng cách hàng 5 mét.
Sau khi trồng cần làm cỏ, xới đất kết hợp tủ gốc giữ ẩm cho cây 4-5 lần/năm. Trong 3 năm đầu khi cây chưa kép tán cần trồng thêm cây che bóng giữa các hàng để bảo vệ đất, nhằm tăng cường chất hữu cơ và giảm công làm cỏ…
Lượng phân bón trong 3 năm đầu như sau: phân chuồng 5-10kg, phân NPK 150g/gốc/năm. Các năm sau tăng dần lượng phân lên, nên bón phân vào lúc làm cỏ và vun gốc vào đầu, giữa và cuối mùa mưa.
Ở Việt nam cây này được gọi là Bằng lăng nước, mọc nhiều nhất ở các rừng vùng Đông Nam Bộ, đặc biệt là rừng cây gỗ toàn là bằng lăng gần thị xã Gia Nghĩa, tỉnh Đăk Nông.

Lagerstroemia speciosa (Giant Crape-myrtle, Queen’s Crape-myrtle, Banabá Plant for Philippines, or Pride of India[) is a species of Lagerstroemia native to tropical southern Asia.

Growth
It is a small to medium-sized tree growing to 20 m tall, with smooth, flaky bark. The leaves are deciduous, oval to elliptic, 8-15 cm long and 3-7 cm broad, with an acute apex. The flowers are produced in erect panicles 20-40 cm long, each flower with six white to purple petals 2-3.5 cm long.
Cultivation and uses
It is grown in South East Asia, India and the Philippines.
It is also widely cultivated as an ornamental plant in tropical and subtropical areas.
Banaba extract is used as a natural health supplement and is made from the leaves of the banaba tree. Some research suggests that banaba extract may support blood sugar balance and weight loss. The primary active ingredient is corosolic acid, and there are also numerous possible synergists including lager-stroemin, flosin B and reginin A.
Banaba Tea The leaves of the Banaba and other parts are used widely by the Philippines, Taiwan, and Japan as a Tea preparation. This tea is consumed as a natural means for a variety of reasons involving the kidneys, such as dissolving kidney stones, kidney cleanses, and kidney health in general. Research being conducted in Japan shows much promise for this plant and its potential uses in the medical community.

National Zoo Welcomes Lion Cubs

The Smithsonian’s National Zoo’s Great Cats team celebrated the arrival of its first litter of African lion cubs in four years. On Jan. 24, the Zoo’s 10-year-old lion Nababiep gave birth to three cubs—two surviving—in an eight hour period. These cubs are the third litter for Nababiep and the fourth for 8-year-old father, Luke.
Animal care staff watched Nababiep give birth via a closed-circuit webcam and continue to monitor the family’s behavior. The first cub was born at 3:58 a.m. and appeared active and healthy. Five hours later at 8:51 a.m., Nababiep delivered her second cub, but it was stillborn. The third cub was born at 11:24 a.m. and appeared active and healthy. It is not uncommon for animals, in this case a lion, to have some healthy and one or more stillborn cubs in the same litter. Nababiep and her two cubs have been under close observation throughout the weekend by the Zoo’s animal care team. They appear to be nursing, moving and vocalizing well, so keepers have not needed to intervene.

“The first few days of a lion cub’s life are very fragile,” said Rebecca Stites, an animal keeper at the Great Cats exhibit. “Naba continues to prove that she has great maternal instincts, so the best course of action is for us to allow her to care for and bond with her cubs. We have every indication that she will successfully raise these cubs just as she did her previous litter.” (Note: Nababiep gave birth to one cub in May 2010 that lived for 48 hours.)

The mortality rate for lion cubs (including those that are younger than a year) in captivity in 2009 was about 30 percent, compared to a 67 percent mortality rate for cubs in the wild. Animal care staff are cautiously optimistic that the cubs will thrive and are giving Nababiep the solitude she needs to care for her young.

The Zoo received a recommendation to breed the lions from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ Species Survival Plan for African lions. An SSP matches individual animals across the country for breeding in order to maintain a healthy, genetically diverse and self-sustaining population. About one month after Luke bred with Nababiep, he and her 9-year-old sister Shera also bred. Animal care staff are closely monitoring Shera and suspect she is pregnant based on her physical changes and weight gain, among other cues. Keepers gradually separated Nababiep from Luke and Shera to give Nababiep the privacy she needs to emulate the natural process. As Shera’s expected delivery date draws near, animal care staff will separate her from Luke as well. In the wild, female lions will typically leave the pride for a secure area and give birth alone. A lioness may wait up to six weeks before introducing her cubs to the rest of the pride.
The formation of prides makes lions unique among the great cats, many of which are solitary animals. Hunting, disease and habitat loss have contributed to a decline in the population of African lions, which are considered a vulnerable species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
“One of the best parts of this job is seeing all of our planning and preparation come to fruition,” said Kristen Clark, an animal keeper at the Great Cats exhibit. “In 2010, we had a remarkable opportunity to watch seven cubs grow, master husbandry training, and go on to other zoos to contribute to their breeding programs. To watch this litter follow in their siblings’ footsteps will be incredibly exciting and rewarding.”

Nababiep’s cubs will not be on exhibit until late spring, which will give the Zoo’s animal keepers and veterinary team time to examine them. However, National Zoo visitors can see 5-month-old Sumatran tiger cubs Bandar and Sukacita on exhibit every day that weather permits staff to give them outdoor access.

The lion (Panthera leo) is one of the four big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. With some males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight, it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger. Wild lions currently exist in sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia, with an endangered remnant population in Gir Forest National Park in India, having disappeared from North Africa and Southwest Asia in historic times. Until the late Pleistocene, about 10,000 years ago, the lion was the most widespread large land mammal after humans. They were found in most of Africa, across Eurasia from western Europe to India, and in the Americas from the Yukon to Peru. The lion is a vulnerable species, having seen a major population decline of 30–50% over the past two decades in its African range. Lion populations are untenable outside designated reserves and national parks. Although the cause of the decline is not fully understood, habitat loss and conflicts with humans are currently the greatest causes of concern. Within Africa, the West African lion population is particularly endangered.

Lions live for 10–14 years in the wild, while in captivity they can live longer than 20 years. In the wild, males seldom live longer than 10 years, as injuries sustained from continual fighting with rival males greatly reduce their longevity. They typically inhabit savanna and grassland, although they may take to bush and forest. Lions are unusually social compared to other cats. A pride of lions consists of related females and offspring and a small number of adult males. Groups of female lions typically hunt together, preying mostly on large ungulates. Lions are apex and keystone predators, although they scavenge as opportunity allows. While lions do not typically hunt humans, some have been known to do so. Sleeping mainly during the day, lions are primarily nocturnal, although bordering on crepuscular in nature.

Highly distinctive, the male lion is easily recognised by its mane, and its face is one of the most widely recognised animal symbols in human culture. Depictions have existed from the Upper Paleolithic period, with carvings and paintings from the Lascaux and Chauvet Caves, through virtually all ancient and medieval cultures where they once occurred. It has been extensively depicted in sculptures, in paintings, on national flags, and in contemporary films and literature. Lions have been kept in menageries since the time of the Roman Empire, and have been a key species sought for exhibition in zoos over the world since the late 18th century. Zoos are cooperating worldwide in breeding programs for the endangered Asiatic subspecies.
