growth is the growth all plants make towards light - if you put a plant on a windowsill you'll see all the foliage twist towards the light.
Scientists used a phototropic
bacterium - bacteria that respond to light stimuli - known as Rhodopseudomonas palustris as a catalyst to generate methane from the greenhouse gas.
Vicky Dean AMOST plants are phototropic
, meaning they grow towards the light and leaves try to face the sun.
citri exhibits positive phototropic
behavior (Setamou et al.
Cryptochromes may also be involved in phototropic
growth of axial corallites in acroporid branching corals (Kaniewska et al.
After approximately 48 h, the phototropic
nauplii moved through a hole in the division to the portion of the chamber kept under continuous light.
The plots were randomly distributed on a counter under a continuous light source from the date of mounting because Trichogramma species are phototropic
positive (SOARES et al.
A dark rearing tub was necessary because phototropic
pelagic darter larvae typically do not feed properly in glass or light colored containers.
The cercariae are motile, and are phototropic
and chemotropic, meaning they respond to changes in light and chemical stimuli--they are especially attracted by chemicals found on mammalian skin.
Hypocholesterolemic effect of phototropic
bacterial cells in rats.
Other hypotheses suggest that bioluminescence excludes negatively phototropic
fungivores, or can even work as a warning signal to nocturnal fungivores (Sivinski 1998).
A MOST plants are phototropic
- they grow towards the light.
