  • Ants Protect Acacia Plants Against Pathogens

    The biological term "symbiosis" refers to what economists and politicians usually call a win-win situation: a relationship between two partners which is beneficial to both. The mutualistic association between acacia plants and the ants that live on them is an excellent example: The plants provide food and accommodation in the form of food bodies and nectar as well as hollow thorns which can be used as nests. The ants return this favor by protecting the ...

  • The relationship between plant hormones

    Regulation of plant growth is influenced by a variety of growth substances. It worked by several hormones more often than a single hormone. There is a balance between them, which has both mutually reinforcing effects, but also the role of mutual antagonism. Auxin and gibberellic acid Low concentrations of auxin and gibberellic acid have the growth-promoting effect on isolated organ, such as coleoptiles, hypocotyls and stem. The effects of Auxin are not significantly than gibberellic acid ...

  • Researchers Find ‘Handle’ With Which to Control Wood Growth, Density

    An international team of scientists have realized a breakthrough which paves the way for researchers to start controlling growth and density in trees bred for bioenergy production, such as hybrid aspen. Bio4Energy researchers involved said the findings meant they now had a "handle" with which to manipulate the transport of the plant hormone auxin in wood producing cells found in the stem of trees. Their peer-reviewed work has been published in the scientific journal Nature ...

  • How to use plant growth regulators

    Plant growth regulator, a kind (class) of synthetic material, has regulating and control effects on plants, which can change the process of plant growth and flowering. Currently, growth regulators have been widely applied in flower cultivation, and have the following three categories: a. Auxin class of growth regulators Low concentrations of these chemicals can promote growth, while high concentrations will inhibit growth. It is widely applied in the promotion of rooting cuttings in asexual reproduction ...
