Effect of an artificially induced drought on leaf peroxidase activity, mineral nutrition and growth of sugar maple


The effect of an artificially induced drought was investigated in an 80-year-old sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marsh.) stand in southern Quebec. We hypothesized that leaf peroxidase activity would increase, and that leaf nutrient deficiencies typical of declining trees (K, Mg) would develop during the year following the imposition of the drought.
