  • A waxy cuticle covers the aerial organs of plants that functions to prevent uncontrolled water loss. The cuticle has often been considered a non-responsive adaptation that acts simply as a barrier to water loss, when in fact cuticle metabolism is quite responsive to environmental stresses. The responsiveness of the cuticle has been demonstrated by changes in cuticle chemistry and cuticle gene expression of drought and salt exposed plants. Alteration of cuticle traits through breeding and… CONTINUE READING
