Abstract

Plant respiration has long been described to be resistant to cyanide, since the first observation was made in 1929 by Genevois on sweet pea (Lathyrus odora-tus) seedlings. Soon after, Van Herk and Badenhuizen (1934) and Van Herk (1937 a, b, c) showed that the respiration of the spadix of the Sauromatum guttatum was highly resistant to cyanide. Respiration in this group of plants (Araceae) is known to be extremely high and linked to heat production, particularly during pollination (see Lance 1972, Meeuse 1975). In 1939, Okunuki observed that the respiration of Sauromatum pollen was resistant to carbon monoxide, and a similar observation was also made by Marsh and Goddard (1939) on carrot leaves. These pioneering works established the concept that plant respiration differed from that of animals by its behavior toward respiratory inhibitors. Cyanide could even stimulate respiration, as in potato tubers (Hanes and Barker 1931).
