Phototaxis of chloroplasts as a criterion of viability of leaf parenchyma

Abstract

It has been shown that phototaxis of chloroplasts may be used as a criterion of the degree of injury in leaf parenchyma of many plant species. This method was applied here to determine heat resistance of leaf parenchyma, its resistance to ethanol and high hydrostatic pressure and also to characterize reversibility and heat hardening.
