    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…

    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…

    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…

    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…

    have 24 for rhododendron and 29 for Kalmia. So all in all, all three of these non-native plants are thriving much better than the native plants. Discussion From the results that we have obtained we can proclaim that this experiment supports our hypothesis, which was the ERH hypothesis. Each non-native plant seemed to thrive more than the native plants by quite a lot when compared in data. The one that came the closest to being out of this pattern was the holly since each result was very close…
