In addition to this initial low temperature after late planting the whole plant organ biomass accumulation was significantly reduced because of a further decrease in the mean temperature and interval of plant biomass accumulation before January (Figs.
The proline content changed with the stress type, concentration, and plant organ. Neither S100 nor A100 induced the accumulation of proline.
Plant organs and parts are in a constant dynamic equilibrium and therefore a change in plant leaf temperature is described by the change of the balance of energies of the plant organ or any part thereof at a certain moment of time.
Table 5 summarises data of geographic distribution of the species and presents the attacked plant organ, as well as a brief gall characterisation (based on shape and number of internal chamber).
These data simulate weight increase in each plant organ considering the partitioning factor of biomass driven by the reported development stage of the crop and growth days.
Furthermore, other distinctive sensory features, such as color, can favor the selection of one plant organ over another.
Four measurements were made for each plant organ. After the measurements were completed, the bracts and capsule walls were collected and their surface areas determined.
The environment, line, and replication effects were assumed to be random and plant organ and inoculation effects were considered to be fixed.
The growth and development of each plant organ are influenced by competition from other organs as well as environmental conditions.
The oviposition occurs on superficial tissues, and when the eggs hatch (Meyer, 1987; Miller, 2005), the larvae chew plant cells, and enter the host plant organ. The nutritive cells accumulate lipids and are capable of self-regeneration (Meyer, 1987; Ferreira & Isaias, 2013; Vecchi et al, 2013; Ferreira et al., 2015).
