A one-day workshop to practice the technique of leaf area measurement with Android mobile application Petiole was organized by the Department of Fruit and Viticulture of the Faculty of Fruit and Vegetables, Ecology and Plant Protection at Uman National University of Horticulture. This is truly the scientific center of the modern agricultural education of Ukraine. Established in 1844, this University is one of the oldest universities…

Leaf area (LA) is an important parameter in many plant modeling studies.There is a need for a simple, accurate and non-destructive model to predict LA in physiological experiments in which destructive LA sampling is not allowed (e.g., rare plants or genetically segregating populations). In this study, a model for LA estimation was developed for Plumeria rubra L. using simple linear measurements of leaf length (L)…

It was interesting and challenging way but we have gone it. Finally, we have completely new Petiole.LeafArea, an Android based mobile application for biology, plant physiology, agriculture chemistry and ecology. We re-write it from scratch. Now Petiole measures not only the specific leaf area of an individual plant leaf but can measure total leaf area. Petiole will help to measure specific leaf area and total…

The atmospheric [CO2] in which crops grow today is greater than at any point in their domestication history and represents an opportunity for positive effects on seed yield that can counteract the negative effects of greater heat and drought this century. In order to maximize yields under future atmospheric [CO2], we need to identify and study crop cultivars that respond most favorably to elevated [CO2]…

Деревья в мегаполисах приспособлены к тем условиям нежели те же самые породы деревьев, которые произрастают в естественных условиях. То есть, опять таки это влияние вторичного засоления, тяжелые металлы, газы и т.д. Степень развития дерева определялась степенью развития его органов, в том числе листков. Были различия между территорией естественного происхождения, например, парки, зеленые зоны – там были листья более крупные и содержали меньше тяжелых металлов. И…

Привет всем читателям Geektimes. Сегодня у нас появилась возможность поговорить о “живом” развитии своих собственных идей с основателем стартапа Petiole Андреем Селезнёвым. Мы постараемся обойти стороной победные реляции и внушения о том, как это всё легко (или тяжело) и как приятно чувствовать на себе внимание прессы. Вместо этого мы хотим рассказать о достаточно длинном процессе: о том как зарождается идея, о теоретическом багаже знаний автора…
