Isoprene is the most abundant volatile compound emitted by vegetation. It influences air chemistry and is thought to take part in plant defense reactions against abiotic stress such as high temperature or ozone. However, whether or not isoprene emission impacts ozone tolerance of plants is still in discussion. In this study, we exploited the transgenic non-isoprene emitting grey poplar (Populus x canescens (Aiton) Sm.) in a biochemical and physiological model study to investigate the effect of… CONTINUE READING
