Investigation of the processes involved during the photoinhibition of Zea mays L. seedlings.
It has been proposed that the protective systems (photorespiration, the anti-oxidant system and non-radiative energy dissipation) alleviate or reduce photoinhibitory damage under high light conditions. To investigate the ...
The validity of currently recognised sectional limits within Combretum Loefling, subgenus Combretum (Combretaceae) in Southern Africa.
Taxonomic confusion associated with Combretum Loefling, subgenus Combretum (Combretaceae) resulted in this investigation into the validity of sectional limits within the subgenus in southern Africa. Eight sections, together ...
The effect of H2O2 on the photosynthetic biochemistry of Pisum sativum.
To study the short-term effect of hydrogen peroxide on plant metabolism aminotriazole (2 mM), a catalase inhibitor was applied through the transpiration stream of pea seedlings and the gas exchange characteristics, ...
Reproductive potential of Solanum mauritianum Scop. : implications for control.
Solanum mauritianum Scop. is rated the worst invader species in pine plantations throughout the Republic of South Africa. Control is costly and apparently ineffectual since the species is spreading in pine plantations ...
The effect of seaweed concentrate on plant growth.
The application of seaweed concentrates to plants has been shown to enhance growth and improve yield parameters. How these natural products elicit their beneficial responses is still unclear. While many of the growth ...
Lipid peroxidation and ageing in seeds of Glycine Max.
Six different lots of soya beans (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) were examined. Seed hydroperoxide levels were highly correlated with viability, but not with moisture contents. It was proposed that moisture contents may exert a ...
