  • In this study, we examined the effects of ethylene and abscisic acid (ABA) upon heterophyllous leaf formation of Ludwigia arcuata Walt. Treatment with ethylene gas resulted in the formation of submerged-type leaves on terrestrial shoots of L. arcuata, while treatments with ABA induced the formation of terrestrial-type leaves on submerged shoots. Measurement of the endogenous ethylene concentration of submerged shoots showed that it was higher than that of terrestrial ones. In contrast, the… CONTINUE READING
