Seedling survival and growth of two common Vallisneria species in China, Vallisneria natans and Vallisneria spinulosa were quantified experimentally for current velocities from 0 to 40 mm/s. At the same time, changes in the concentrations of three hormones (IAA, ZR, and GA3) in the leaves were compared to identify how current velocity influenced the two Vallisneria seedlings growth discrepantly. All plants survived in all treatments and showed positive growth. The most rapid growth for both… CONTINUE READING
