To answer if the equivalent could be done with plants, we have to understand the histological and anatomical differences between plants and animals. Just as spraying a nutritive solution over an animal (like you and me) doesn't work, spraying a nutritive solution over the leaves doesn't work as well: the nutritive molecules (let's use glucose in our ...

Survive without eating: no Survive without photosynthesis: 1. Yes, and 2. Yes-if considering only "nutritional" aspect of photosynthesis Some parasitic plants lack photosynthesis (see the beautiful ghost plant) Plants also grow during the night, and plants are able of respiration, which can exceed photosynthesis - and trees do so excessively when they ...

No, not in the long run at least. (Except for parasitic plants as I have just learned!) Plants rely on photosynthesis to make up glucose but that is just the tip of the iceberg, there are tons of cascade reactions (also genes regulation) going on linked to the photosynthesis. Read this just to get an idea. So, photosynthesis is so deeply linked to the ...

It depends upon your field, and its proximity to native specimen. In practice, in-vivo and ex-vivo are used to stress a relative difference. If you are biochemist in a field / research area that usually uses purified components and reconstitution: in-vivo If you are biochemist in a field / research area that usually measures glutamate within undried ...

The classification usually applies to the experimental conditions. Are the experimental conditions applied to an organism, or to a less than whole organism (cells culture --> all the way to test tube chemistry reactions)? This is somewhat subjective, but in your case, since the experimental conditions are drying time of the pretty much whole organism (the ...

The Natural Medicines Database monograph for Valerian includes a pooled adverse effects analysis of more than 20 clinical trials with Valerian for various indications. No diuretic effects were identified in any trials. Natural Medicines Database monographs are available by subscription only and are considered by the vast majority of healthcare ...

There is one study that I can find that has been cited in the medical literature that examines individuals taking valerian extract for generalized anxiety disorder. In this paper, there do not appear to be any claims that valerian has any diuretic or anti-diuretic properties. However, that's not to say that those properties don't exist. Additionally, there ...

Based on the habitat of Algaes, a classification called "Thermophytes" can bear high temperature. The Thermophyte algaes use to grow around hot springs and can live around 70°C. Please find below the reference for all classifications and more details. http://www.yourarticlelibrary.com/biology/8-types-of-algae-classified-according-to-their-habitats/7098/ ...

- NO,for capillary action 2 things are of importance 1) the radius of capillary tube[R] ,2)the tension force between molecules at surface of liquid [T] (for water=72.8 dynes/cm= 728 X 10^-6 N) - height to which the fluid will rise due to cap.effect, H=(2T cosα)÷(ρgR) - [ρ=density of liq,here water =1000kg/m³] - numer.=constant(for given liq) denomin.=...
