Gas Exchange, Water Relations, and Dry Weight Partitioning during Root Initiation and Development of Poinsettia Cuttings
TLDR
This research supports the hypothesis that formation and elongation of root primordia coincides with increased gas exchange in poinsettia cuttings, and that gas exchange can be used as a nondestructive indicator of adventitious root development.
Change in Tissue Mineral Elemental Concentration during Root Initiation and Development of Poinsettia Cuttings
TLDR
Variation in tissue elemental concentration in apical stem cuttings of 'Lilo' and 'V-10 Amy' poinsettia were studied during the initiation and development of adventitious roots to show changes in selected macro- and micro-element concentrations coincided with root initiation.
Non-nutritional stress acclimation of mycorrhizal woody plants exposed to drought.
TLDR
Mycorrhizal enhancement of drought resistance of two woody plant species, loblolly pine and rose, occurred independently of phosphorus nutrition and neither the endo- nor ectomycorrhIZal symbionts affected osmotic adjustment of droughted plants.
Comparison of methods for estimating surface area of water-stressed and fully hydrated pine needle segments for gas exchange analysis.
TLDR
Differences among surface area estimates made with the three methods and between estimates made on water-stressed and fully hydrated needles were small relative to variances of leaf gas exchange measurements.
Shoot and Root Responses of Eight Subtropical Species Grown in Cupric Hydroxide-treated Containers
TLDR
Shoot and root responses to Cu(OH) 2 -treated containers varied among subtropical species, which is consistent with shoot andRoot responses among temperate species, but coverage was completely eliminated in three species.
Ectomycorrhizae and Drought Acclimation Influence Water Relations and Growth of Loblolly Pine
TLDR
The influence of ectomycorrhizae on drought acclimation was studied in an open-pollinated family of loblolly pine and found fascicle area, shoot and root mass, and fascicle nutrient elemental content were similar for seedlings inoculated with Pt and noninoculated seedlings.
