Field observations indicate leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula) is inhibited by the presence of Antennaria microphylla. Hydroquinone (HQ), one of several compounds isolated from A. microphylla has been shown to inhibit leafy spurge seed germination, root elongation, and callus culture growth. The present study was designed to analyze the effects of HQ on water relations and photosynthesis of leafy spurge. Plants grown in 0.25 mM HQ had consistently higher leaf diffusive resistance and lower… CONTINUE READING
