The research team plans to test the relationship between vegetation coverage and plant cell structure in other regions around the world.
In addition to being gentle on the plant cell structure the Lintonizing[TM] Process provides an additional benefit to processing--cooking a vegetable by bringing atmospheric pressure to the boiling point temperature rather than vice versa eliminates the physical requirement to add large amounts of energy to the product to achieve that last 1[degrees] increase from 211[degrees]F to boiling.
Testing this relationship between leaf area index and plant cell structures in modern environments allowed the team to develop an equation that can be used to predict vegetation openness at any time in the past, provided there are preserved plant fossils.
