Biophysical and Hormonal Changes Linked to Postharvest Needle Abscission in Balsam Fir

Abstract

Efforts are being made to determine significant biophysical and physiological events related to postharvest needle abscission. It is known that initial postharvest average water consumption is 0.2 mL g−1 day−1 (based on dry shoot tissue), but gradually decreases by up to 75 %. It is hypothesized that some degree of water deficit is manifested through… (More)
