Abstract

The dramatic changes which occur in the abscisic acid content of leaves during wilting and recovery have been the subject of considerable research interest since the phenomena were discovered by Wright and Hiron (1). Other stress conditions, such as heat, waterlogging, and salinity, cause similar increases in the amounts of abscisic acid (ABA) present in leaves but there is some uncertainty as to whether these treatments themselves caused the rise or whether a secondary, incipient wilting effect they induced was responsible (2).
