Stomate length and chlorophyll per area often do not change with changes in the light environment (Abrams & Kubiske 1990; Niinemets et al.
During photosynthesis the plant takes up carbon dioxide in the form of a gas and releases oxygen in the form of a gas; thus, open stomates are necessary for free gas exchange.
However, rare Picea needles and associated Picea stomates indicate that scattered spruce trees persisted locally in the herb-dominated vegetation.
Plant characteristics such as stomate density, trichome number, and trichome size, for most cases, were measured on the same 10 resistant and 10 susceptible clones; however, in some cases susceptible clones were replaced with other susceptible clones because of deatb from dollar spot.
The first leaves appeared after 56-92 days of culture, with petiole and plate divide narrow, trichomes bifurcate and stomate anomocytic.
