Changes in RNA concentration in the shoot apical meristem during induction and the transition to flowering were measured histochemically in Silene coeli-rosa (L.) Godron, a long-day plant. In the apices of plants induced by 7 long days the RNA concentration increased to about 25 per cent higher than in non-induced plants. Three long days did not induce flowering but resulted in a transient rise in RNA concentration. When plants were given long days interrupted by varying numbers of short days… CONTINUE READING
