Title: Mediation of rapid electrical, metabolic, transpirational, and photosynthetic changes by factors released from wounds. I. variation potentials and putative action potentials in intact plants

Author: Barres, S.J.; Perry, T.J.Sambeek Jerome w.; Pickard, Barbara G.;

Date: 1976

Source: Canadian Journal of botany, Vol. 54(23): 2642-2671

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description:

Damaging representative plants from five angiosperm families by heating or crushing a small portion of a single leaf results in an electrical change which may spread throughout the shoot. In Mimosa similar changes have previously been identified as variation potentials.

Except in one of the five plants, a variation potential is often accompanied by brief fluctuations which may propagate either basipetally or acropetally and which have many of the properties of action potentials.
