|The influence of chlorsulfuron on the uptake and utilization of zinc by wheat / Matthew Simon Wheal.
|Wheal, Matthew Simon
|Dept. of Plant Science
|This thesis describes the experiments conducted to determine the mechanisms that cause the decline in shoot Zn concentration and the responses of the wheat plant to Zn deficiency and chlorosulfuron stress. Root tip extension is used as a measure of wheat root growth during exposure to the sulfonylurea herbicide chlorsulfuron. Wheat plants differing in Zn efficiency are grown in HEDTA chelate-buffered nutrient solution in controlled conditions.
