Leaf samples of Mn-deficient and Mn-sufficient (control) ‘Navelate’ orange plants grown in a greenhouse were taken to investigate the effects of Mn deficiency in leaf structure and chloroplast ultrastructure. Total leaf chlorophyll concentration was significantly lower in Mn-deficient plants than in control ones. Entire lamina thickness was not altered due to Mn deficiency. However, Mn deficiency resulted in disorganization of mesophyll cells, mainly of palisade parenchyma cells. The number of… CONTINUE READING
