Abstract:

It was found that during the falling off of leaves under the influence of ethylene the same changes are taking place as in the case of fall abscission. In both cases the falling off of leaves is preceded by a strengthening of processes of decay and the accumulation of free bios. Bios flows from the leaf blades into the leaf stalks and apparently causes cell division in them. The separation layers develop from these divisions.
