Research Project: Identification of Physiological Mechanisms for Boron Tolerance

Location: Water Management Research

Project Number: 5302-13000-011-45
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 02, 2014
End Date: Aug 29, 2014

Objective:
Identify physiological mechanisms for boron (B) tolerance in B-tolerant hybrid poplar clones.

Approach:
Using advanced Swiss electron-microscopy techniques, we will attempt to identify the localization and storage mechanisms responding to excessive tissue B in ARS-developed poplar trees tolerant to excessive B.
