Abstract:

Ethylene inhibited the formation of flowers in cocklebur Xanthium pensylvanicum Walln. plants that were exposed to an inductive dark period. Indoleacetic acid had been shown earlier to have this same effect. Because it stimulates ethylene evolution from cocklebur leaves, the results suggest that the effect of auxin may be an ethylene effect.
