The Plant World
– Introduction Plants exhibit exceptionally intelligent behaviour when it comes to interactions with their environment. They can detect perceived threats, then convey warning signals to other plants via chemical signaling. Forewarned plants will then assemble their defenses against these potential threats, thus, increasing their chance of survival and reproduction. Communication and competition are common occurrences among the plant world. Another brilliantly, almost inconceivable capability plants possess is the ability to recognize coexisting family members within their home range….
Kalanchoe, A Native Plant of Madagascar
– … The flowering occurs within four months after exposure to six weeks of fourteen hour nights. Kalanchoe can be re-bloom next season if it is cared for correctly. And is able to be re-potted around spring time, though you should be careful because the leaves are brittle it can easily snap. When the flowers eventually turn brown you should snip them off to prolong the blooming season of your plant. Mealy bugs, aphids and brown scale are the most common insect of Kalanchoe, you should isolate plants that are infested….
pH Soil and Plant Growth
– The acidity or alkalinity level is dictated by the pH, potential of hydrogen, scale. Soil pH or soil reaction is an implication of the acidity or alkalinity of soil and is measured in pH units. Soil pH is characterized as the negative logarithm of the hydrogen particle fixation. As the measure of hydrogen particles in the soil builds the soil pH diminishes along these lines getting to be more acidic. From pH 7 to 0 the soil is progressively more acidic and from pH 7 to 14 the soil is progressively more alkaline or basic….
Taking a Look at Plant Abscission
– … As the fruits drop up from the trees to the ground, they get bruises around them and they lose some amount of water which makes the farmers fruit to look damaged and not good to be the consumers choice which also negatively affect the farmers income. Losses as a result of pre-harvest drop have also been a serious problem with most of the common fruits such as apples (Pyrus malus L.), pear (Pyrus commums L.), orange (Citrus sinensis Osb.) as well as grapefruit (C. paradise) (Cooper, Rasmussen et al….
Reciprocal Coevolution and Plant-Pollinator Interactions
– … Due to certain restrictions, only specific species can act as a vector and that led to specialization of a relationship. It was more of a key and lock mechanism rather than a coincidental coevolution. Since the species that could not get to the specific flower, carried on until it found a suitable one. This therefore does not necessarily mean that either the flower or the vector altered their morphology just to increase the fitness. All of the above arguments are also thought to be the root of the mentioned ‘plant syndrome’ that specifies the pollinator response and the species that acts as a vector….
