The NSF EPSCOR funded Solar Nexus Project is a collaborative effort between scientists, engineers, educators, and technicians to increase the amount of renewable solar energy in Nevada while eliminating its adverse effects on the surrounding environment and wildlife, and minimizing water consumption. The project seeks to research multiple areas, including(More)
Leaf and cotyledon expansion in dicotyledonous plants is a light-dependent developmental process. The unique role of phytochrome B has been tested by investigating expansion of cotyledons in wild-type and phytochrome-deficient mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. A relatively rapid method for measuring cotyledon area was developed to quantify growth(More)
Cotyledon expansion in response to blue light was compared for wild-type Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. and the mutants blu3 and hy4, which show reduced inhibition of hypocotyl growth in blue light. White, blue, and red light stimulated cotyledon expansion in both intact and excised cotyledons of wild-type seedlings (ecotypes No-0, WS, Co-0, La-er).(More)
