Lacy phacelia or purple tansy (Phacelia tanacetifolia), which can be
planted any time of year due to its short growing season. After
flowering, it is plowed into the ground to enrich the soil with
All types of clovers: excellent nectar plants that plowed after
flowering and enrich the soil with nitrogen, or scythe them and use
as feed for animals
This review (from 2011)1 states that it depends on the plant species and cultivar.
Some continuous light (CL)-grown photosynthetic organisms show
increased productivity. However, CL also induces negative effects in
several plant species. The most visible CL-induced negative effects
are leaf chlorosis and necrosis. CL also lowers photosynthetic
Agave are pretty tough. The way I propagate them is to cut the head off, and lay it on the ground, and come back in a year or so. I live in a semi arid climate. They grow faster if I water them every few weeks or so in the dry season.
Non uniform lignification of xylem vessels is beneficial to a plant in that it enables growth. It is at the unlignified parts of plants that growth occurs since fully lignified tissues are dead and so can not grow. Spiral and annular thickening allows for vessels to elongate and thus allows tissues to expand without breaking the vessel walls.

Depending on molecular weight of amylose and because of its helical structure formed by two macromolecules makes it partly soluble in water.
Heating amylose solution leads to formation of colloidal suspension of soluble fraction and remining insoluble higher molecular weight fraction of amylose does not dissolve. On cooling this suspension, certain portion ...
It certainly can be done. Tyndallisation may as discussed on labmate may work well for your situation. If not, there are many other viable alternatives suggested.
Developed partway through the 19th century by English physicist, John Tyndall, the eponymous Tyndallisation was a commonly used
technique by the microbiologists of ...
The availibity of -OH groups for hydrogen bonding with polar water molecules is reduced in amylose due to its coiled nature (resulting in part by H-bonds between the glucose monomers). Amylopectin is even less soluble due to the additional 1-6 glycosidic bonds on the branch chains, further reducing its H bonding potential and therefore reducing solubility ...
This link should answer your doubts concerning such plants. Asking for a list concerning whole Europe feels something a little bit out of reach considering how diverse the environment is there, this link concerns mainly the UK, albeit you have to consider ...
