Magnetoreception in plants
This article reviews phenomena of magnetoreception in plants and provides a survey of the relevant literature over the past 80 years. Plants react in a multitude of ways to geomagnetic fields—strongExpand

Growth of etiolated barley plants in weak static and 50 Hz electromagnetic fields tuned to calcium ion cyclotron resonance
BackgroundThe effects of weak magnetic and electromagnetic fields in biology have been intensively studied on animals, microorganisms and humans, but comparably less on plants. Perception mechanismsExpand

Magnetic effect on CO2 solubility in seawater: A possible link between geomagnetic field variations and climate
Correlations between geomagnetic-field and climate parameters have beensuggested repeatedly, but possible links are controversially discussed.Here we test if weak (Earth-strength) magnetic fields canExpand

Transient effect of weak electromagnetic fields on calcium ion concentration in Arabidopsis thaliana
BackgroundWeak magnetic and electromagnetic fields can influence physiological processes in animals, plants and microorganisms, but the underlying way of perception is poorly understood. The ionExpand

The Growth of Freshwater Green Algae in Weak Alternating Magnetic Fields of 7.8 Hz Frequency
Liquid cultures of Chlorella kessleri, Scenedesmus armatus and Chlamydomonas reinhardtii have been grown phototrophically in weak (0 .2 -2 G) alternating (7.8 Hz) magnetic fields. The data indicate,Expand

Magnetoreception in microorganisms and fungi
The ability to respond to magnetic fields is ubiquitous among the five kingdoms of organisms. Apart from the mechanisms that are at work in bacterial magnetotaxis, none of the innumerableExpand

The Effect of Weak Permanent Magnetic Fields on the Electric Properties of Lipid-Bilayers
Abstract Black lipid membranes were prepared on a Teflon septum separating electrically the two chambers of a Teflon cuvette, using the technique of Mueller et al., (Nature 194. 979 (1962)). AnExpand
