Lastly, there was no basipetally oriented freezing observed in either turf species in leaf or shoot tissue, suggesting the presence of ice-nucleating bacteria on turf leaf surfaces are not responsible for causing ice formation which could propagate into turf crowns.
The percentage of phytomers with inflorescences and the contribution of inflorescence to phytomer weight decreased basipetally (Table 4).
01) from 125 to 145 mm basipetally for Phytomers 2 through 4 of Sunnyview, for example.
The initiation, ontogeny, and subsequent anthesis of the secondary capitulum is homologous to that of a synflorescence or collection of primary capitula (Classen-Bockhoff, 1992; Harris, 1994; Kunze, 1969; Rauh & Reznik, 1953); that is, the individual or primary capitula are initiated in an acropetal sequence and develop acropetally, but they then undergo anthesis basipetally.
14]C moved acropetally while 32% moved basipetally and accumulated in a variety of tissues.
The first visibly expanded (about 2 cm long) leaf at the apex was noted on each plant; then, proceeding basipetally, the sixth leaf was identified and severed from the plant (Kahn et el.
