Use of bioassays for allelochemicals
in aquatic plants.
FRUIT TRAITS OF THE WATERMELON VARIETIES/GENOTYPES
Scientists could create hypersensitive plants of either the crop species or monitor plants whose sole function would be to signal neighboring crop plants to ramp up their allelochemical
pHBA potentially inhibits plant growth by disturbing membrane functions.
Future investigations should include testing of different insecticide classes, as well as a comparison of allelochemical
content of the plant species tested.
When absorbed by the roots and transported throughout the whole plant, the allelochemical
substances may act on cell division; the stretching, permeability and ultra-structure of cells; membrane permeability; hormone-driven mechanisms of growth induction; protein synthesis; and lipid and organic acid metabolism.
Microbial growth under the snow: implications for nutrient and allelochemical
availability in temperate soils.

Interactions, CRC Press, 1999: 3-14.
The physiology of allelochemical
action: clues and views.
pungens forests within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, soaked in deionized water, and filtered to obtain extracts that probably included water-soluble grayanotoxins, a potential allelochemical
common in members of the Ericaceae.
While hydroquinone (HQ) has been implicated as an interfering allelochemical
in natural and agroecosystems, the mechanism of this interference remains poorly understood.
This research focused on determining how variations in light level in conjunction with a known allelochemical
stress affected growth and photosynthesis.
