  • Plant With The Normal Soil Temperature
    1,378 words
    ABSTRACT The purpose of this experiment was to determine whether seedlings of the same kind will sprout faster under different controlled temperatures. The three controlled temperatures were 32^0, 20^0, and 5^0 degrees Celsius. The hypothesis will prove that the plant in the normal temperature range will sprout faster than the plants in the higher or lower temperatures. The procedure that was followed to support my hypothesis was to observe six germinating seeds in six separate pots. Two pots ea...
  • Leaking Chemicals

    Conclusion: The hypothesis is supported by the findings that 0% of the green onions planted in bleach-contaminated soil showed any root growth over the 1-week period, and, in contrast, 100% of the green onions planted in non-contaminated soil grew at least 6.5 cm over the 1-week period. In addition to this data, research has shown that a common source of groundwater contamination is the handling and storage of bulk chemicals, such as bleach. These chemicals leak and spill from storage during tra...

  • Early Nodulation Gene Expression

The physiological outcomes of both symbioses are quite dissimilar, however, several studies have shown that nodulation defective mutant are often defective in arbuscular mycorrhiza formation, this is indicative of a common genetic overlap in perception of endosymbiosis signals in the host. Analysis has shown several genes to integral t...
