  • SummaryComparisons of reflection, transmittance, and absorptance spectra of heavily glaucous leaves, glaucous leaves from which the glaucescence was experimentally removed, and naturally occurring non-glaucous leaves of a single species (Dudleya brittonii Johansen) reveal that glaucescence, a powdery wax coating on the leaf surface, is responsible for very high reflectance of ultraviolet radiation (UV) and high reflectances of visible and near-infrared radiation. UV reflectance (up to 83% in UV… CONTINUE READING
