The increases of TLA in plants subjected to 100 and 130% FC can be explained by the higher NL and especially by the increase in the expansion of the leaf blade area of each foliole.
Since there was no leaf abscission, the lower TLA in plants under water deficit can be explained by the lower NL emerged during the experimental period and/or by the smaller expansion of folioles already emerged before the beginning of the treatments.
In Fraxinus, a compound odd pinnate leaf species, the bigger foliole
from the apical pair was selected.
In the laboratory, one foliole per leaf was randomly selected, totalling 15 folioles per clone, which were washed with gentle brush stroke, in a 1.
The petiole of each foliole was inserted in a plastic tube (tips of a micropipette) containing distilled water, with their opening sealed with Parafilm M[R].
Optimizing the enzymatic masceration of foliole
puree from heart pieces of heart of palm (Euterpe edulis Mart.
At each sampling date, seven leaves were taken from around the canopy of each selected tree up to seven to eight meters above ground; one foliole
of each leaf was analyzed.
movement and canopy architecture of Larrea tridentata (DC.
Further, carbohydrates produced from reserve lipids in oilseeds are distributed to the plant and utilized as carbon source until the chloroplasts begin to differentiate in the folioles
and start photosynthesis.
Croute adherente, foliacee; folioles

Level 2 included palms with early RPW infestation symptoms mainly in the leaves, such as holes or notches in folioles
and leaves, or missing folioles
