    californica-P. ramorum pathosystem should utilize microscopy to progress the observable record of which physical mechanisms are involved in the infection and spread of necrosis, such as structural elements like the stomata and waxy cuticle and how they are functioning. If specific molecules or macromolecules were detected or suspected of influencing susceptibility, then follow-up radio-active isotopes testing could be used to analyze quantities, concentration and transport of such a substance during pathosystem interactions. To further understand the implications of moisture dynamics on P. ramorum, climate data should be coupled with future research, especially with climate change is having greater influences on field data analysis. In conclusion, U. californica leaves had an increased susceptibility to P. ramorum after their first year of development, while the water content potential within the leaf had no influence on the occurrence or magnitude of necrosis. Our results…

    Animal Adaptation Essay

    • 1167 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Plants and animals have made changes in their habitats as they have transitioned from water environments to land environments. This alteration requires the organisms to adapt to their new environments in order to survive and reproduce. These evolutionary transitions eventually led up to alterations in means of respiration, ways to prevent water loss, water dependent reproduction, and structural transformations. Amphibians evolved into reptiles and eventually into birds and mammals, being able to…

    Title: Importance of photosynthesis in agriculture. Introduction: photosynthesis is the process by which plants and some bacteria convert energy from the sun into food or chemical energy, This is how plants survive. This is the chemical reaction that takes place inside the leaf of a plant. This is what makes plants green and healthy.Photosynthesis has a vital role in agriculture.

    Photosynthesis Importance

    • 983 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Photosynthesis is the way in which some specialised bateria and green plants use their chlorophyll to trap light energy and then use this energy to convert carbon dioxide and water to glucose and oxygen. The green colour in plants is from the chemical chlorophyll which is found in the chloroplasts in the cells of the plant. It is very concentrated in the leaves of the plants due to the surface of the leaf being flat which allows it to have a very big surface area to absorb light:…
