  • Oxalis triangularis, called the love plant, exhibits circadian rhythms of leaf movement by moving its leaves to upward (open) in the light and downward (close) in the darkness, which is well known as a nyctinastic movement in leguminous plant. In this study, the effects of various light conditions on leaf movement of O. triangularis were evaluated in accordance with the changes of light condition as following: transfer 1) from constant darkness to various light intensities, 2) from various dark… CONTINUE READING
