Relation of stomatal opening to water soaking of tobacco leaves



Relation of stomatal opening to water soaking of tobacco leaves



American Journal of Botany 26(5): 347-351



Susceptibility of tobacco leaves to water-soaking by a stream of water was determined largely by the degree of opening and condition of stomata. During the day stomata were open, and leaves could be water-soaked easily and rapidly; at night, stomata usually were closed or nearly closed, and leaves water-soaked only with difficulty. Wilting leaves and leaves shaded naturally or artificially water-soaked slowly, and stomata were closed or nearly so. Middle leaves of Burley plants water-soaked more rapidly than tip leaves or basal leaves. Stomata were not fully developed on tip leaves. On basal leaves stomata were always closed or nearly so, some being deformed with degenerating guard cells. The method described in this paper or some modification of it may be used as an indirect method for studying stomatal behavior.
