Influences of antitranspirants on the desert trees


, : Influences of antitranspirants on the desert trees. Indian Journal of Forestry 9(4): 349-351

One-yr-old potted plants of 2 arid zone species, Prosopis cineraria and Acacia salicina, were sprayed with 50 ml of ABA (0, 1, 5, 10 or 25 micro M) or PMA (phenylmercuric acetate, a fungicide, at 0, 100, 500, 1000 or 5000 micro M). After treatment, measurements were made on 4 successive days, and on the 8th day, of transpiration rates (using Huber's quick weighing method) and of relative leaf turgidity. The results are tabulated.

An increase in Mg concn. lowered the blood pressure and diminished the intensity of vasomotor reflexes. A reduction had no effect.

The mustard chloroplast gene rps 16 is split by an 887 bp group II (or III) intron. Three RNA 5' ends upstream of the rps 16 coding region define both the trancription start site and two RNA processing sites. The DNA region preceding the star...

In this paper, data obtained by the 1995, 1996 and 1999 three GPS campaigns in North China have been used to study intraplate tectonic block movements in this area (N36 degrees -N42 degrees , and E112 degrees -E120 degrees ). By a Bayesian inversi...
