Regulation of sucrose metabolism in higher plants: localization and regulation of key enzymes.
Salt stress usually interrupts the endocellular ionic or osmotic equilibrium, inhibits the growth and metabolisms in higher plants; secondarily it also results in consequent oxidative stress, or even death (Niu et al., 1995; Zhu, 2001), among which the inhibition of growth was the most significant.
However, the abundant phenanthrenes are the precursors of the phenanthrene series, and retenes or pimanthrenes were derived from higher plants, which contributed to the depositional environment and origin.
Much of this energy could be saved or sold to generate higher plant revenues.
Increasing the plant population density, particularly in a wide row spacing, decreased plant survival (Figure 2A), most likely because this combination led to higher plant densities within a row.
Snell-Rood tried to investigate effects of higher plant sodium concentrations, but not enough of the insects survived.
The statistical procedures adopted could not recognize differences among the treatments, nevertheless, the numeric trend follows more or less similar pattern of the data of 30 DAS, advocating the erect plant growth and higher plant density as a reason for more resting adults on these treatments.
Furthermore, the good monsoon in the current year has resulted in higher plant load factor (PLF) and hence, larger accruals.
We are also drawing on the broader Petrofac expertise and systems to focus on working with BP to drive higher plant reliability and availability over the duration of this contract.
Plant assays lacks general acceptance because of the problem that faces all higher plant test systems: namely, plant cells are distantly separated physiologically and phylogenetically from human cells (Nilan 1978).
Historically CO2 is a spin-off from high global temperature, being generated by higher plant growth and subsequent decay.
Brown reports the majority of the increase in yield proved to be from improved plant genetics, but there was a 10% average increase in yield when the varieties were planted using today's management practices (narrower row width, higher plant population and additional nitrogen).
