Spatial distributions of growth and of the concentration of some inorganic nutrient elements were analyzed in developing leaves of maize (Zea mays L.). Growth was analyzed by pinprick experiments with numerical analysis to characterize fields of velocity and relative elemental elongation rate. Inductively coupled plasma and atomic emission spectroscopy were used to measure nutrients extracted from segments of leaf tissue collected by position. Leaves 7 and 8, both elongating 3 millimeters per… CONTINUE READING
