    Two Leaf Monologue

    home. It was a Tuesday. My mother had called me home from school saying it was an emergency. I was a little rushed, slightly worried, so I was at a fast pace. Then something caught my eye. Three leaves, perfectly symmetrical, were laying on the sidewalk. They were all different colors. The one on the left was multicolored, there was light coming through a tree that was making the light change. Blue, then green, then red, yellow. Ever changing. The next one was silver, vibrant. The third was grey, dying, pores in it and decaying. Then it blew away a little bit, then stopped. Then again. I noticed that as it blew further, the silver leaf started getting darker. Darker and darker, until finally the third leaf was out of sight, leaving the originally silver leaf a charcoal grey. This puzzled me greatly, and I reached out and touched the multicolored leaf. BOOM. Whiteness. Weightless. Nothing. I heard a voice. It was coming from everywhere, like the greatest Bose you’ve ever heard in your life. “Go to what you are to the one who loves you.” I felt a searing pain throughout me, then black. I woke up, and my first thought was, “boiling.” Because that’s what it was. I was in a hut. In the jungle. The jungle? Why? Where? I sat up. I was in a cot. Made of straw. Why? I had no idea. It was your classic wood hut. Exactly what you imagine when you think of a hut. A cylinder, with a cone on top. And my God, it was hot. No, like, you don’t understand, there was steam in the hut. Like…

    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…

    Maple Syrup: A Case Study

    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…

    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…

    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…
