    Physiological Injury and Bio-mechanical Injury of Aquatic Plants

     Physiological Injury of Aquatic Plants 1. Insufficient LightDuring the growth, due to insufficient light, the photosynthetic intensity of aquatic plants will be reduced, the normal growth and development will also be affected. For example, red water plants such as Ammania gracilis and Rotala macranda, due to insufficient light, the anthocyanins in the

  • What is Leaf Area Index?

    Leaf area index, or LAI, is used to measure the amount of foliage in canopies. It is determined by the coverage of leaves per unit of ground surface. Or in simpler terms, LAI measures how many layers of leaves are found in a m2 of surface. What does ...

    Leaf Porometer

    Stomatal aperture is the dominant factor in the diffusion conductance of leaf surfaces, which controls both the water loss from plant leaves and the uptake of CO2 for photosynthesis. Measurements of diffusion conductance are therefore important indicators of plant water status and provide a valuable insight into plant growth and plant adaptation to environmental variables.
