Effect of seed irradiation on the content of antioxidants in leaves of Kidney bean, Cabbage and Beet cultivars
It is concluded that UV irradiation of seeds stimulated stress adaptive mechanisms in tested plants and enhance their nutritional value and tolerance to environmental stress factors. Expand
Activity of Peroxidase, Catalase and Content of Total Proteins in Leaves of some Herbaceous Plants of High Mountains of the Caucasus
The comparatively dry climate and heightened UV radiation of Kazbegi region caused an increase of the content of total proteins in plants, in comparison with lower forest and alpine zone species of the minor Caucasus. Expand
Antioxidant response of some Georgian wheat species to simulated acid rain
Alterations in antioxidative system, which is responsible for plant resistance to stress, indicate that Georgian endemic wheats are resistant to high acidity (pH1.5), and may be recommended as reliable material for cultivation under progressively polluting environmental conditions. Expand
Content of Antioxidants in Leaves of Some Plants of Tbilisi Environs
Content of antioxidants ascorbic acid, proline, anthocyanins, total phenols, proteins and soluble carbohydrates, also total antioxidant activity has been studied in leaves of 18 plant species,Expand
Effect of UV radiation and artificial acid rain on productivity of wheat
Responses of physiological parameters to UV irradiation of seeds and acid spraying of plants grown from them have been studied in several wheat species and it has been shown that they have no significant influence on the yielding capacity of most species and, in some cases, even improve this parameter.

Influence of Temperature on Morphological Indices of Soybean and Pea Seedlings
Changes in morphology of soybean (Glycine hispida (Moench) Max) and pea (Pisum sativum L.) seedlings under the influence of high and damaging temperatures of air (40C for 1h, 2h, 3h, and 45C for 1hExpand
