The experiment was conducted to evaluate the influence of temperature on fatty acid (FA) concentration of common vetch (Vicia sativa L.). The result suggests that the moderate temperature (23/18 °C) greatly increased the concentration of lipids, palmitic acid, stearic acid, arachidic acid, behenic acid, oleic acid, most notably linoleic acid and linolenic acid, but had limited effects on the concentrations of dodecanoic acid and myristic acid. The level of polyunsaturated FA was higher in 23/18… CONTINUE READING
