Generally, shoot lengths and weights, root lengths and weights, leaf lamina and sheath lengths, and stomata number were greater at higher temperatures. Stomata were larger and utilization of seed reserves was slower at lower temperatures. Whether plants were flooded or not flooded, or whether continuous or changing temperatures were used, plants grew better at higher temperatures than lower temperatures. California varieties generally grew more rapidly than Texas varieties at all temperatures.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
