Four Leaf Clover:
Throughout the Novel, Joe finds Several Four leaf clovers. Joyce tells him that it is pure luck, however, Joe responds that one only has to "keep your eyes open" (69). He makes the point that when you stop looking for them, you will stop finding them. The four leaf clover symbolizes Joe 's Luck and willpower. Joe grew up with a very unlucky life but he refused to let that bring him down. He doesn 't use that as an excuse to work hard for what he wants. The four leaf clover appears at the highest points in Joe 's life. For example, at the Poughkeepsie Regatta, Joe and Joyce 's engagement, and at the Olympic Games.
In the quote, "The perpetually somber skies began to drizzle relentlessly. Biting winds blew in from the southwest, kicking up legions of white caps on Lake Washington." (Pg 71), imagery is used to set the setting for the chapter and bring the reader closer to what the characters were seeing as well as feeling. These conditions would instill a fear inside any rower who looks uppon them, for they are very…
zoospore or water, with an average of 10 drops being placed per leaf. Leaves labeled for zoospore inoculation were treated with 10 drops of zoospores (10ul) and those labeled for control were treated with 10 drops of sterile soil water (10uL) using proper pipette technique. Tubs were then sealed, stored and covered in the dark for 7 days at approximately 25°C. Data measurements were conducted by hand, and included the frequency of necrosis as a measure of number of potential infections and the…

minerals and water from the roots to the leaves (Myburg & Sederoff, 2001). Phloem is also a tubular structure but it is responsible for the translocation of sugars from the leaves to the roots and other parts. The Xylem and Phloem run through the stems of the plants in vascular bundles called veins (BBC, 2014). Off the stems leaves grow, together they are called the shoot. The primary job of leaves is to create energy for the plant. They are thin and broad, thereby maximising the surface area…
The main objective of this study was to determine whether the rate of cavitation in xylem channels correlates with tree height by measuring the water tension from leaves at the top against leaves from the bottom of Acer Platanoides (Norway Maple) trees. We hypothesized that water tension would be higher at the top of trees than at the bottom. The secondary focus was to determine if varying water tension would affect the structural composition of leaves. In order to identify a relationship, we…
First CO2 enters leaves through the stoma via diffusion. An enzyme, known as Rubisco, will fix the CO2 to form a 3 carbon compound (Khan academy [accessed 2017]). This 3 carbon compound will eventually be converted to sugar and become maple syrup (Perkins and van den Berg 2009). Plants that follow this metabolic pathway are known as C3 plants (Khan academy [accessed 2017]). It is important to note that Rubisco prefers to fix carbon 12 over carbon 13; therefore 13CO2 is more likely to diffuse out…
design with five biological replicates of each treatment in the green house. An equal amount of water was applied to the pots to maintain optimal soil moisture depending on plant and soil conditions. Drought stress was applied by stopping irrigation after 21 days of germination. Before harvesting the third or fourth leaf of a plant, the plants were used for all in situ measurements as growth parameters. The plants were sampled on 0, 3rd and 6th day after stress application.

density of young and old leaves has not significantly different densities. The age of the leaf does not аffect and do not correlate with stomatal density. Because, when the leaf is a baby leaf it makes all the stomata and as leaf growth it just pulls apart from each other. Stomata has an essential rоle in all plаnts. Stomata helps to maintain balance between water and gas exchanges. The word stomatа come from Greek and meаns opening. The structurе оf the stоmata cоnsists оf the guard cеlls аnd…
Leaf science: how to find the hidden colours Rationale:
To understand how leaves change colour and why they are green. This is aimed at moving Billy from pre-theoretical knowledge to sound scientific understanding of chlorophyll while understanding the world around him, in a visual way.

The Similarities and Differences between Autumn and Spring
There is exquisite beauty in the seasons of autumn and spring. There are also distinctions which allow each season to stand out on its own. During spring everyday something new is born from a beautiful flower to a buzzing bee. The plants and trees begin to wither in autumn as the days grow longer and cooler. Though, autumn and spring are similar seasons, they have many drastic differences such as climate, holidays, and changes…
