Pagination or Media Count:
The objectives of this work were to develop a method to study the response of vegetation upon exposure to anhydrous ammonia vapor and to identify potential influences plants may exert on each other under various environmental conditions in the laboratory. A method of processing plant tissues before and after exposure for use in proteomic studies is also described. Results suggest that ammonia vapor release can damage several critical physiological processes in vegetation. Recommendations include conducting further studies with vegetation exposed to ammonia vapor under various environmental conditions as well as identifying and comparing relevant biomarkers expressed at specified experimental time points.
