EFFECTS OF PLANT GROWTH SUBSTANCES ON IN VITRO FIBER DEVELOPMENT FROM UNFERTILIZED COTTON OVULES
Fertilization of cotton ovules was prevented by removal of styles and stamens on the morning of anthesis. Forty-eight hr later ovaries were harvested and ovules were aseptically transferred to liquid… Expand
Plant compensation for arthropod herbivory
Plant compensation for arthropod damage is a general occurrence of considerable importance in both natural and agricultural systems. In natural systems, plant species that can tolerate or compensate… Expand
Crassulacean Acid Metabolism: Analysis of an Ecological Adaptation
Terminology.- 1. Taxonomy and Geographical Distribution of CAM Plants.- 1.1 Cactaceae.- 1.2 Crassulaceae.- 1.3 Euphorbiaceae.- 1.4 Aizoaceae (Mesembryanthemaceae).- 1.5 Bromeliaceae.- 1.6… Expand
Osmoregulation in Cotton Fiber: Accumulation of Potassium and Malate during Growth.
Kinetics and osmoregulation of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) fiber growth (primarily extension) have been studied. Growth is dependent on turgor pressure in the fiber. It is inhibited when a… Expand
Morphological responses of strawberry leaves to infestations of twospotted spider mite.
Injury to strawberry leaves caused by various infestation levels of Tetranychus urticae Koch was studied. Reduction in leaflet chlorophyll content by twospotted spider mite feeding was more evident… Expand
Photosynthetic phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylases: characteristics of alloenzymes from leaves of c(3) and c(1) plants.
A detailed comparison of green leaf phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylases from the C(4)-species Atriplex spongiosa and the C(3)-species Atriplex hastata revealed significant physical and kinetic… Expand
Purification, properties, and kinetic observations on the isoenzymes of NADP isocitrate dehydrogenase of maize.
Abstract A successful method for the purification of NADP isocitrate dehydrogenase from a plant source, Zea mays , is reported. Two mitochondrial isoenzymes were found and purified to homogeneity by… Expand
Nitrogen fixation, denitrification, and pleomorphic growth in a highly pigmented Spirillum lipoferum.
A strain of Spirillum lipoferum with intense red pigmentation was isolated from the roots of Cynodon dactylon "Coastal." This isolate vigorously reduced acetylene when grown in N-free, Na-malate,… Expand
Carbon metabolism in two species of pereskia (cactaceae).
The Pereskia are morphologically primitive, leafed members of the Cactaceae. Gas exchange characteristics using a dual isotope porometer to monitor (14)CO(2) and tritiated water uptake, diurnal malic… Expand
