Kinetics of Adaptation to Osmotic Stress in Lentil (Lens culinaris Med.) Roots.


When intact roots of lentil (Lens culinaris Med.) are subjected to severe osmotic stress by treatment with a solution of low water potential, they immediately begin to shrink. Within 10 to 15 minutes, shrinkage ceases, and within 20 minutes, the roots resume growth. The time lag between application of osmoticum and resumption of growth varies from about 10… (More)
