Electrophysiology on plant cells means single-cell recordings, as there are no gross compound action potentials. As you correctly say, this means micro-electrodes; this in turn means computerized manipulation of the pipettes, a decent microscope, signal amplifier, recording software, stimulator slash voltage/current control, Faraday cage, analysis software ...

You are right, there are marine angiosperms that complete their whole life cycle underwater. Those plants are commonly called 'seagrasses', all occuring within the order of Alisimatales and distributed over 4 families, 12 genera and 58 species (Wikipedia). According to Les et al. (1997), a marine habit is highly correlated with certain reproductive traits, ...

Plants do not need CO2 for survival. They need it just for photosynthesis; if you supply them with alternate carbon source such as glucose then they would survive (See here for non-CO2 Carbon-source utilization). There are non-photosynthetic plants which are totally dependent on carbon sources other than CO2; some are carnivorous like venus fly-trap. I am ...

Preamble In short, fructose kinases (like Fru6P,2-kinase) and fructose phosphotases (such as Fru2,6bisP) regulate and are in turn regulated by fructose (specifically Fru6P) levels in plants. There are also several metabolites that regulate the rate at which those fructose enzymes function creating quite a complex fructose regulatory network. This ...
