Hybrid tea-roses under controlled light conditions. 2. Flowering of seedlings as dependent on the level of irradiance.
AbstractUnder the experimental conditions described in the preceding abstract, mortality increased with decreasing light intensities. The percentage of flowering seedlings increased and that of aborting ones decreased with irradiance. For the populations studied, no genotype-environment interactions for the percentages of flowering seedlings occurred. A selection procedure for roses with a low light requirement for flowering is considered. (Abstract retrieved from CAB Abstracts by CABIâ€™s permission)
