Early Autumn Senescence in Red Maple (Acer rubrum L.) Is Associated with High Leaf Anthocyanin Content
TLDR
It is concluded that autumn anthocyanins in red maple in Ontario are important when senescence happens early, possibly due to the higher irradiance and greater danger of oxidative damage early in the season.
Leaf reddening of sweet gum in water imbalance
Autumn senescence in Populus tremula
The study that was conducted in this thesis confirmed that northern aspens enter into senescence earlier and the duration of their senescence period is shorter in general compared to the more south
Elevation of atmospheric CO 2 and N-nutritional status modify nodulation , nodule-carbon supply , and root exudation of Phaseolus vulgaris L .
Increased root exudation and a related stimulation of rhizosphere-microbial growth have been hypothesised as possible explanations for a lower nitrogen(N-) nutritional status of plants grown under
Pigment dynamics and autumn leaf senescence in a New England deciduous forest, eastern USA
TLDR
The leaves of woody plants at Harvard Forest in Central Massachusetts, USA, changed color during senescence; 70% (62/89) of the woody species examined anatomically contained anthocyanins during Senescence, indicating no long-term protective activity.
Cadmium variability in leaves of a Salix fragilis: simulation and implications for leaf sampling
Plant analysis is a valuable tool to evaluate the pollution level. However, leaf sampling is complicated because of the high variability within the crown. To investigate the variability of cadmium
