Electrical impedance analysis in plant tissues: on the biological meaning of Cole-Cole α in Scots pine needles

Electrical impedance spectra (80 Hz–1 MHz) in Scots pine needles were found to be characterized by spectrum skewness in the Cole-Cole plot. These spectra were subjected to analysis with two distributed models: (i) the Cole-Cole function and (ii) an equivalent circuit which takes account of the presence of air spaces within the needles (Model-A). In analysis… CONTINUE READING
