Of the above parameters, leaf abscission was the most affected by salinity, with the concentrations of 40 and 60 mM NaCl resulting in an increase of approximately 100% in the number of abscised
leaves when compared to the control.
Relationships of abscised
cotton fruit to boll weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) feeding, oviposition, and development.
lanatus exhibit a form of serotiny (canopy seed storage) in that the cones do not disintegrate, but gradually dry out, retaining the partially exposed abscised
seeds within the desiccated cone (Grobbelaar, 1989, 2004).
buckthorn leaves have a relatively low C:N ratio (e.
part of clitellate lectotype >70 mm long, 10 mm wide at 10, 14 mm in region of tubercula pubertatis.
Similarly, more flowers abscised
at the bottom than at the top.
65 % of leaves were abscised
and with 60 mM of NaCl 77.
Nay and Perring (2005) studied Ectomyelois ceratoniae (Zeller) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) larval mortality due to ant predation and heat load from abscised
dates remaining on the tree and dates fallen to the ground.
This symptom makes it difficult to use old (>1 year old) foliage in carbon distribution studies, unless the amount of foliar biomass abscised
has been measured.
After the indicated interval of time the explants were temporarily removed from the chamber and petioles that fell off with a gentle touch were recorded as abscised
During the present study, these two forms occur notably as abscised
pinnules, very rarely as ultimate pinnae of which three were collected.
The low nitrogen values of marcescent leaves in this study were comparable to values from regular abscised
senescent leaves (Killingbeck 1996).
Lichens and freshly abscised
oak leaves were collected in December 1989, and air-dried to supply initial litterbag material.
For plants from the southern populations, every leaf from the main axis was collected as it began to yellow and abscised
While Mattoo wants it to have a longer, more productive youth, molecular biologist Mark Tucker wants to know why it detached itself, or abscised
