A rapid, non-invasive procedure for quantitative assessment of drought survival using chlorophyll fluorescence

Woo, Nicholas; Badger, Murray; Pogson, Barry


BACKGROUND: Analysis of survival is commonly used as a means of comparing the performance of plant lines under drought. However, the assessment of plant water status during such studies typically involves detachment to estimate water shock, imprecise methods of estimation or invasive measurements such as osmotic adjustment that influence or annul further evaluation of a specimen's response to drought. RESULTS: This article presents a procedure for rapid, inexpensive and non-invasive...[Show more]
