ABSTRACT The germination of Clostridium estertheticum, the primary organism responsible for early blown pack spoilage, was investigated. Presence of C. estertheticum in blown packages was confirmed. The effect of pH, temperature and oxygen on germination of spores was established. Germination...
Constitutive expression of the pea ABA-responsive (ABR17) cDNA confers multiple stress tolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana
The constitutive expression of the pea ABR17 (abscisic acid-responsive 17) cDNA, which is a member of the group 10 family of pathogenesis-related proteins (PR 10), in Arabidopsis thaliana is reported. The presence of ABR17 transcripts and the protein in the three transgenic lines is demonstrated...
The flotation technique was used to segregate non-viable from viable Siberian larch (Larix Sibirica Ledeb.) seeds using water as the floating media. The non-viable seeds floated while the viable ones sank. Without stratification, the average percent germination of the floating and sunken seeds...
A major barrier to reclamation after oil sands mining is lack of commercially available, diverse native plant seeds and propagules for revegetation. Potential of LFH (forest floor material) developed on coarse textured soil for establishing native plants and how salvage, placement and storage...
Structural and Biochemical Changes in Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda L.) Seeds during Germination and Early Seedling Growth. II. Storage Triacylglycerols and CarbohydratesDownload
Abstract: Triacylglycerols (TAGs) comprised 59% of the total storage reserve in mature loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) seeds; 80% of these TAGs were stored in the megagametophyte. The TAG breakdown in the seedling was initiated before radicle emergence (during germination), while in the...
The results of preliminary experiments on pre-germination treatment methods for nine selected native woody plant species are presented. The species investigated include Amelanchier alnifolia (saskatoon), Arctostaphylos uva-ursi (bearberry), Elaeagnus commutata (silverberry), Juniperus communis...
