Title: Stress ethylene production: a measure of plant response to stress

Abstract

The results of the experiments indicate that stress ethylene production is dependent on the stress concentration (up to a limit) from a wide variety of test chemicals applied either in the aqueous or gaseous phases. The production of stress ethylene is a short-lived phenomenon, peaking quickly after stress application and returning to control levels with 24 h. Plants are capable of responding to repeated stress applications, which indicates that the tissue maintains its capacity to produce stress ethylene. Stress ethylene production is associated with visual injury and reduced plant growth, suggesting that stress ethylene may provide a reliable bioassay for determining the effects of a variety of stresses on plants.
