Leaf Quotes (40 quotes)
Higher plants have to cope with fluctuating mineral resource availability. However, strategies such as stimulation of root growth, increased transporter activities, and nutrient storage and remobilization have been mostly studied for only a few macronutrients. Leaves of cultivated crops Zea mays, Brassica napus, Pisum sativum, Triticum aestivum, Hordeum vulgare and tree species Quercus robur, Populus nigra, Alnus glutinosa grown under field conditions were harvested regularly during their life span and analyzed to evaluate the net mobilization of 13 nutrients during leaf senescence. Ca and Mn, usually considered as having low phloem mobility were remobilized from leaves in wheat and barley. Overall, wheat, barley and oak appeared to be the most efficient at remobilization while poplar and maize were the least efficient. Further experiments were performed with rapeseed plants subjected to individual nutrient deficiencies. Compared to field conditions, remobilization from leaves was similar N—S—Cu or increased by nutrient deficiency K—P—Mg while nutrient deficiency had no effect on Mo—Zn—B—Ca—Mn, which seemed to be non-mobile during leaf senescence under field conditions.

Leaf insect , family Phylliidae , also called walking leaf , any of more than 50 species of flat, usually green insects order Phasmida, or Phasmatodea that are known for their striking leaflike appearance.
