Estimation of leaf area in pecan cultivars (Carya illinoinensis)
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Facultad de Agronomía e Ingeniería Forestal, 2009)
Stresses analysis in semi-elliptic leaf spring and comparison with the SAE J788 (1982) norm
In this work are presented the values found with the experimental testing, in the semi-elliptic leaf spring, utilizing 24 strain gages, distributed in five leaves of springs; these values have been compared to the calculated ...
Diagnostic leaf to evaluate the nutritional status of Jatropha.
(Revista Ceres, v. 62, n. 6, p. 607-613, 2015., 2015)
Specific leaf area and dry matter content estimate thickness in laminar leaves
(Oxford University Press, 2005-11)
• Background and Aims: Leaf thickness plays an important role in leaf and plant functioning, and relates to a species' strategy of resource acquisition and use. As such, it has been widely used for screening purposes in ...
A computer vision approach to quantify leaf anatomical plasticity: A case study on gochnatia polymorpha (less.) cabrera
Inferences about leaf anatomical characteristics had largely been made by manually measuring diverse leaf regions, such as cuticle, epidermis and parenchyma to evaluate differences caused by environmental variables. Here ...
Leaf trait variation on Erythroxylum tortuosum (Erythroxylaceae) and its relationship with oviposition preference and stress by a host-specific leaf miner
It has been suggested that plant physical and chemical traits vary considerably in space and time. Hence, leaf-mining insects may adjust their oviposition in response to leaf attributes representing high quality. Moreover, ...
Leaf anatomy is associated with the type of growth form in Neotropical savanna plants
(Canadian Science Publishing, Nrc Research Press, 2015-08-01)
Scleromorphic leaf structures are associated with plants growing under drought-prone conditions, high irradiances, and nutrient-poor soils. Sclerophylly can also be a valuable deterrent against herbivores. However, ...
