Response of Piper species to water stress



Response of Piper species to water stress



Indian Journal of Horticulture 63(4): 433-438



Experiments were conducted to assess the relative response of different Piper species, namely P. nigrum, P. colubrinum, P. chaba, P. longum and P. hymenophyllum, to water stress. Data were recorded for relative water content (RWC), cell membrane leakage, catalase, peroxidase, superoxide dismutase (SOD) and acid phosphatase activities. Catalase and acid phosphatase activities decreased while peroxidase activity increased during water stress.
