Experiment demonstrating plant transpiration. A plastic bag has been secured over the branches of a pot plant. The inside of the bag has condensation on it from water transpired from the plants leaves. Transpiration is the evaporation of water from pores called stomata in leaves. The pores open to allow carbon dioxide to enter the plant for use in photosynthesis, but this also leads to the loss of water. - Stock Image C026/8353
Genetically diverse Vitis cultivars were used to investigate developmental changes and factors determining grape berry transpiration. Vapor pressure deficit was the main determinant driving berry transpiration and caused daily fluctuations of transpiration rate. Berries of various cultivars shared similar developmental patterns of transpiration and cuticular conductance. The transpiration rate berry-1 and, to a lesser extent, the cuticular conductance, peaked when the skin color of berries was red/purple (about 13 °Brix) and then declined with further ripening. The positive linear relationship between berry transpiration rate and surface area weakened after berries matured, due to a decline in cuticular conductance during late ripening. Differences among cultivars also existed. Vitis labruscana Concord berries consistently had much lower cuticular conductance than V. vinifera Merlot and Syrah berries. Across 10 cultivars, berry transpiration accounted for a daily loss of 2 to 3% of berry ...
At several heights and times of day within a crop of Zea mays, internal leaf diffusion resistance (r sub phi) and external boundary layer diffusion resistance (r sub a) were evaluated by measuring the temperature of a transpiring and a non-transpiring leaf (simulated by covering both sides of a normal lead with strips of polyethylene tape), and by measuring the immediate air temperature, humidity and windspeed. Both r sub a and r sub phi increased with depth into the crop. However, r sub a generally was less than 10 per cent of r sub phi. Profiles of latent-heat flux density and source intensity of transpiration showed that transpiration corresponded roughly to foliage distribution (with an upward shift) and were not similar to the profile of radiation absorption. The data were compared with heat budget data. The two approaches hielded quite similar height distributions of transpiration per unit leaf area and total transpiration resistance. The total crop resistance to transpiration was computed as

In plants, many cuticle-associated mutants have been reported (Kosma and Jenks, 2007), but none of these exhibited reduced transpiration rates, improved WUE, and elevated tolerance to drought-like conditions. The cer9 mutant reported here shows delayed leaf wilting when exposed to increasing water deprivation, which was associated with reduced whole plant transpiration rates regardless of whether stomata were open (in the light) or closed (in the dark). Moreover, the cer9 mutant had higher WUE (less-negative δ13C), while no other cuticle mutants we examined here (even those with known cuticle permeability defects) showed any change in WUE. Besides a dramatic elevation in the VLCFA pool of the cuticular waxes of the cer9 mutant, cer9 also possessed major changes in the cutin monomer composition and a highly modified cuticle membrane ultrastructure. The total cutin monomer amount on the stem of cer9 was 1.6-fold greater than on the wild type, and the stem cuticle membrane thickness was comparably ...
In this practical experiment, students look at how at potometer can be used to measure factors affecting transpiration rates, and develop investigations to compare the transpiration rates under different circumstances.
Transpiration Pulls. It is the pulling force responsible for lifting the water column. As water is lost in form of water vapour to atmosphere from the mesophyll cells by transpiration, a negative hydrostatic pressure is created in the mesophyll cells which in turn draw water from veins of the leaves.. The negative tension is then gradually transmitted downwards via xylem tissues of the leaf, stem and finally to the roots. As a result there is a continuous upward movement of water column in the plant. 1 atm. pressure can raise water to a height of more than 32ft. So a tension of 13 atm is needed to raise water to a height of 416 feet, scientist have measured this tension to be more than 75 atm. in case of trees, more than 400 feet in height.. Thus the transpiration pull acts as pull from above on the-whole of water column of the plant which pushes the water column of xylem vessels of roots lowers leaves i.e. in an upward direction. This is how ascent of sap is affected in plants.. ...

Four to 10 h of soil flooding delayed and suppressed the normal daily increase in root hydraulic conductance (Lp) in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. cv Ailsa Craig) plants. The resulting short-term loss of synchrony between Lp and stomatal conductance decreased leaf water potential ([psi]L) relative to well-drained plants within 2 h. A decrease in [psi]L persisted for 8 h and was mirrored by decreased leaf thickness measured using linear displacement transducers. After 10 h of flooding, further closing of stomata and re-convergence of Lp in flooded and well-drained roots returned [psi]L to control values. In the second photoperiod, Lp in flooded plants exceeded that in well-drained plants in association with much increased Lp and decreased stomatal conductance. Pneumatic balancing pressure applied to roots of intact flooded plants to prevent temporary loss of [psi]L in the 1st d did not modify the patterns of stomatal closure or leaf expansion. Thus, the magnitude of the early negative ...
The regulation of carbohydrate metabolism and source-sink relationships among organs play a key role in plant adaptation to drought. This study aimed at characterising the dynamics of transpiration, development, growth and carbon metabolism, as well as the expression of invertase genes, in response to drought during a dry-down cycle. Three 1-month experiments were conducted in controlled environment using the rice genotype IR64 (Oryza sativa L., indica). Plant leaf relative transpiration and expansion rates decreased linearly when fraction of transpirable soil water (FTSW) dropped below 0.66 and 0.58, respectively. Hexose and starch concentration responses to FTSW in a given organ were generally linear and opposite: in source leaves, hexose concentration increased and starch decreased, and vice versa in sink leaves and roots. Sucrose remained constant in source leaves and increased slightly in sink leaves. Starch reserves built up during stress in sink organs were rapidly mobilised upon ...

Fig 1.Street trees increase property values while helping with water absorption.. The change. A natural site absorbs about 20% of the rainwater in its top soil and gives off about 80% of it through plant transpiration and evaporation. Everything on the site gets soaked temporarily and later dries up. Occasionally, some of the water trickles away to the nearest low point or stream. In most cases though, 90 to 100 percent of the water stays on site quenches the plants and recharges the aquifer. Then, in comes the subdivision, the new neighbourhood. Once completed, some 60% of the rain runs off. The cause for this is straightforward: buildings and roads cover 30 to 40% of the site and the plants of the covered portion go missing (plus a few more); fewer chances to absorb water, more flows out. The more compact the development the bigger the proportion of cover and the larger the water volume that escapes. Were it simply water that left the site, the outcomes would not be so worrisome. But runoff ...

OBJECTIVE 1: Wheat mutants, hypersensitive to abscisic acid (ABA) were characterized using ABA dose-response germination experiments, stomatal closure assays, and carbon isotope discrimination. One mutant showed a reproducible stomatal closure in response to ABA application resulting in measured increase in transpiration efficiency, indicating that it may be more drought tolerant. Drought tolerance experiments were established in the field in 2008. The role of the plant hormone, Giberellin in seed germination and plant height was investigated. The DELLA protein, RGA was shown to be controlled by protein-protein interaction with GA receptor GID1 in Arabidopsis. GID1 can deactivate germination-specific DELLA protein RGL2. The effect of GID1 on seed dormancy is similar to the effect of after-ripening suggesting the processes may share underlying mechanisms. OBJECTIVE 2: 105,797 molecular marker datapoints have been provided to wheat and barley researchers as follows: 6,659 (CA), 32,546 (ID), 9,642 ...
Erythroxylum simonisis an understory species found in Northeast Brazil. Due to its shaded habitat,E. simonisis subjected to seasonal oscillations of the environment, to which it must respond ecophysiologically. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of seasonality on the ecophysiology ofE. simonis in a fragment of Seasonal Semideciduous Forest. Leaf area index, visible sky fraction and photosynthetically active radiation were measured for 10 individuals during the dry and rainy seasons. Soil moisture, temperature and monthly precipitation were measured, as well as photosynthetic rate, stomatal conductance, internal CO2concentration, transpiration, instantaneous water use efficiency, instantaneous carboxylation efficiency and chlorophyll content. Ecophysiological variables were correlated with environmental variables, with a greater association of rainfall and soil moisture with stomatal conductance, transpiration and photosynthetic rate, indicating that water availability has an ...

Poiseuille flow and thermal transpiration of a rarefied gas between parallel plates with nonuniform surface properties in the transverse direction are studied based on kinetic theory. We considered a simplified model in which one wall is a diffuse reflection boundary and the other wall is a Maxwell-type boundary on which the accommodation coefficient varies periodically and smoothly in the transverse direction. The spatially two-dimensional (2D) problem in the cross section is studied numerically based on the linearized Bhatnagar-Gross-Krook-Welander (BGKW) model of the Boltzmann equation. The flow behavior, i.e., the macroscopic flow velocity and the mass flow rate of the gas as well as the velocity distribution function, is studied over a wide range of the mean free path of the gas and the parameters of the distribution of the accommodation coefficient. The mass flow rate of the gas is approximated by a simple formula consisting of the data of the spatially one-dimensional (1D) problems. When ...
Widespread forest decline has been documented in Europe and NE-U.S.A. (Johnson,1987; Woodman, 1987). This decline increases with increasing altitude (Mc-Laughlin, 1985). One hypothesis to explain the decline and its altitude dependence is that excessive proton input has a deleterious effect upon tree growth. Acid input to the foliage and soil via wet and dry deposition may be a major factor in causing decline directly or indirectly by predisposing the tree to additional biotic and/or abiotic stress factors. The maintenance of a favorable water status is a priority for continued growth and survival, and many of the symptoms associated with forest decline (crown thinning, root necroses) may be expected to influence plant water status. This paper presents some of the results of a detailed study of the influence of acid mist on the water relations of red spruce seedlings.. ...

Diffusion occurs along a concentration gradient, over relatively short distances (in the order of 1 cm). As roots take up nutrients and ions from the soil a depletion zone can be established allowing diffusion to occur into the depletion zone. The rate of diffusion depends on how fast the roots are taking up the nutrient, how much of the nutrient is present in the soil (this determines the steepness of the concentration gradient that forms) and also on the mobility of the ions by diffusion. Soluble ions would take about a day to diffuse 1 cm; ions bound to the soil matrix would take longer. For examples, Marscher and Rengel (2012) show that nitrate by diffusion in a typical soil travels 3 mm in a day, potassium about 1 mm in a day, and phosphate moves only about 0.1 mm in a day. This illustrates the importance of root hairs in intercepting and accessing phosphate.. Mass flow is driven by the uptake of water caused by the transpiration rate of the plants and can occur over long distances. Many ...
I dont see how this paper no matter if there were retakes or not could get to 48 for an A? I have never seen a grade boundary so high plus it was a very weird paper. Also I got DABE, for the cells I put pallisade and guard cells. For the heart I know i got it wrong I put aorta atrium and ventricle walls. For the part about the component of the membrane I put the hydrophobic tail which Im saying is wrong at the moment but I feel it is a component of the plasma membrane so input would be duly needed in that case. For the question about water up the moss in the exam I couldnt think of where it says that the only way the transpiration stream works if if there is a xylem so I went on about the tension from evaporation at the top etc. I will look in my textbook to see if that only works with the xylem Im not too sure. I got 117 micro metres for the thickness of the artery. Anaphase too. I got Z for the transmission and A was the scanning in my opinion because of the 3D image. Any other questions I ...
Plant scientists believe that transpiration-the motion of water from the soil, through a vascular plant, and into the air-occurs by a passive, wicking mechanism. This mechanism is described by the cohesion-tension theory: loss of water by evaporation reduces the pressure of the liquid water within t …
In this paper, scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory employ the newly developed technique in their lab termed dynamic 13C-pulse chase to evaluate the potential existence of the complete C1 pathway and its integration with C2/3 metabolism in individual branches of a tropical pioneer species using aqueous solutions of 13C-labeled C1 (methanol, formaldehyde, formic acid) and C2 (acetic acid, glycine) intermediates delivered via the transpiration stream. They confirm that methanol initiates the complete C1 pathway in plants (methanol, formaldehyde, formic acid, carbon dioxide) by providing the first real-time dynamic 13C-labeling data showing their interdependence. The team present novel aspects about the pathway including the rapid interconversion between methanol and formaldehyde, whereas once oxidation to formate occurs, it is quickly oxidized to CO2 within chloroplasts where it can be re-assimilated by photosynthesis. We show for the first time that reassimilation of C1, ...

When setting the containers outside, dont place them under awnings or overhangs where melting snow might over-water them. When spring rains arrive you will want to again protect them from being over-watered. Condensation build-up inside is a good thing. If there is no condensation, it either means that you have too many transpiration holes (tape over some of them if this is the case) or your soil is drying out. If the soil is drying out, use a spray bottle to gently mist the inside of the container through the top opening, you dont want to disturb seed placement. As spring arrives, and the air warms up, your transpiration holes should be made bigger and bigger, until you remove the top of your container entirely. This is the winter sowing way to harden off your plants. After they are hardened off, simply plant your transplants out in the garden ...

Breeding and selection for higher transpiration efficiency (W) has been hampered by tedious and costly methodology. Rapid and less costly methods are needed for screening W in plant improvement programmes. We report the relationship of ash, silicon (Si) concentration, and Si uptake to W in crested wheatgrass (Agropyron desertorum [Fischer ex Link] Schultes), an important C3 range grass in western North America. Clones of crested wheatgrass were grown under three water levels in a field rainout shelter and as potted plants under two water levels in the field and greenhouse. Ash and Si concentrations were compared to previously determined values of shoot mass, transpiration, W, and carbon isotope discrimination (A). Ash and Si concentrations were not consistently related to ? and W across all environments; however, ash concentration was positively correlated with ? (r=0•69**, df = 22) and negatively correlated with W (r= -0•61**, df=22) in the well-watered field environment. Across all ...

Alterations in temperature (T) and vapor pressure deficit (VPD) strongly influence gas exchange, but because VPD is highly influenced by T, the effects of these two factors are difficult to separate.Here, the concomitant effects of T and VPD on CO2 uptake, stomatal conductance, and transpiration at leaf- and canopy-levels were examined for a stand of trees (Populus deltoides) enclosed within large mesocosms. T and VPD were independently altered to yield a factorial combination of treatments of low (24 degrees C) or high (30 degrees C) T and low (0.75) or high (1.75 kPa) VPD. Traditional leaf-level gas exchange measurements were compared with whole-canopy exchange to verify typical scaling methods.. ...

The sensitivity of water stress indicators to changing moisture availability, and their variability, determine the number of measurements that should be taken in order to represent properly plant water status in a certain orchard. In the present study we examined the sensitivity and variability of maximum daily trunk shrinkage, midday stem water potential, and daily transpiration rate in their responses to withholding irrigation from field-grown drip-irrigated `Golden delicious apple trees in a commercial orchard. Irrigation was withheld from the stressed trees for 17 days starting in mid-July, and the control trees were irrigated daily at 100% of the Class A pan evaporation rate. The courses of daily transpiration rate, maximum trunk shrinkage, and midday stem water potential before and 10 days after the drying period were similar in the control and the stressed trees. Highly significant differences between the stressed and the control trees in their midday stem water potentials were ...
In this enlightening transpiration experiment, kids will explore how the loss of water from plants through transpiration contributes to the water cycle.
A standard 6-ft. landscape wall may provide some control for direct radiant heat, but it also poses a dangerous lever to catapult hot winds, flames and firebrands towards the interior. It may help to protect against some predators, vermin, floods and bullets, but winds and wind-driven wildfires are only elevated and plummeted directly below in chaotic turbulence, regardless of whether the wall is 10-ft. tall or 20-ft. tall. As noted in ecolandscaping.org , wind also dries out soils and vegetation quickly. Additionally, wind increases plant transpiration, requiring the plant to use more water. High wind can shred plant leaves and sand particles can sandblast the entire plant. In agriculture, experts have learned to use semi-permeable vegetation screens and wind fences or windbreaks to at least mitigate the winds in a sustainable manner. Solid - no! Permeable - yes! Fire resistant wind fences are also currently available as discussed below, and we also propose innovative curved solid walls or ...

Stomatal conductance links plant water use and carbon uptake, and is a critical process for the land surface component of climate models. However, stomatal conductance schemes commonly assume that all vegetation with the same photosynthetic pathway use identical plant water use strategies whereas observations indicate otherwise. Here, we implement a new stomatal scheme derived from optimal stomatal theory and constrained by a recent global synthesis of stomatal conductance measurements from 314 species, across 56 field sites. Using this new stomatal scheme, within a global climate model, subtantially increases the intensity of future heatwaves across Northern Eurasia. This indicates that our climate model has previously been under-predicting heatwave intensity. Our results have widespread implications for other climate models, many of which do not account for differences in stomatal water-use across different plant functional types, and hence, are also likely under projecting heatwave intensity ...

Stomatal closure is one of the first plant responses under a water deficit situation. This leads to a decline in transpiration but also in the plant photosynthetic activity. Legume plants grown under symbiosis with rhizobium bacteria present an inhibition of nitrogen fixation that has been shown to occur even before this of photosynthesis. One of the hypotheses to explain this rapid inhibition is the accumulation of nitrogen (N) compounds in nodules due to reduced transpiration, which would provoke the N-feedback inhibition of nitrogenase activity. The current work analyzes the effects of changes in transpiration rates in the regulation of nitrogen fixation through the application of the anti-transpirant Vapor Gard (VG) to pea (Pisum sativum L.) plants subjected to a progressive water deficit. VG produced a rapid inhibition of nitrogen fixation upon application. This inhibition, however, did not coincide with the accumulation of either amino acids or soluble carbohydrates observed at later ...
XEROPLANTS - plants that live adapted to very dry environment. Adaptations:. 1) Stomata - many have fewer which are sunken decreasing exposure to air currents so less H2O is lost by transpiration. Some xerophytes only open their stomata at night when its dark and cooler to limit H2O loss by transpiration. 2) Leaves - some have small leaves to reduce the surface area which will reduce H2O loss by transpiration. Others have vertically orientated leaves to decrease the surface area exposure to light and heat and decrease H2O lost. Other have roled leaves to prevent H2O loss and maintain humid air around the stomata. This prevents exposure to air current and reduces the water potential gradient. They also reduce surface area of the leaf that is exposed to heat, light and waind which will reduce transpiration further.. 3) Cuticle - many xerophytes have thick waxy cuticles again to prevent H2O loss. 4) Stem - some have hairs convering stem. They help shade and cool the plant leading to a reduced rate ...

Abstract. A large yield gap exists in rain-fed maize (Zea mays L.) production in semi-arid regions, mainly caused by frequent droughts halfway through the crop-growing period due to uneven distribution of rainfall. It is questionable whether irrigation systems are economically required in such a region since the total amount of rainfall does generally meet crop requirements. This study aimed to quantitatively determine the effects of water stress from jointing to grain filling on root and shoot growth and the consequences for maize grain yield, above- and below-ground dry matter, water uptake (WU) and water use efficiency (WUE). Pot experiments were conducted in 2014 and 2015 with a mobile rain shelter to achieve conditions of no, mild or severe water stress. Maize yield was not affected by mild water stress over 2 years, while severe stress reduced yield by 56 %. Both water stress levels decreased root biomass slightly but shoot biomass substantially. Mild water stress decreased root length but ...
This paper presents two hitherto unknown drawings by Marie-Anne-Pierrette Lavoisier dating to the early 1790s that illustrate the experiments on respiration and transpiration of her husband Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier and his assistant Armand Séguin. These works may be associated with the well-known sepia drawings that were published for the first time by Edouard Grimaux in 1888. Details contained in these newly discovered drawings by M.me Lavoisier provide fresh evidence as to the nature and aims of Lavoisiers innovative experiments. As we will show, these drawings were intended to illustrate the collection of papers on respiration being prepared by Lavoisier for his Mémoires de physique et de chimie (1792-1805).

The two nitrogen sources had differential effects on water use efficiency (WUE): NO2 exposure increased long-term WUE; soil N supply decreased WUE; a result not detectable using growth and short-term gas exchange experiments. Plants benefited from airborne NO2, increasing CO2 assimilation rate and biomass; both N sources increased shoot production at the expense of root growth. NO2 exposure induced leaf formation with reduced stomatal density and increased leaf area ...

Quantifying the response of plant water status to environmental conditions and its effect on carbon acquisition are essential for simulating plant growth
Introduction. An Investigation to Determine the Water Potential of a Plant Tissue An Investigation to Determine the Water Potential of Plant Tissue Introduction The plant tissue to be used in this investigation will be that of potato tubers. The cells of a white potato are parenchyma cells. These cells are large, thin-walled, and usually have a large central vacuole. They are often partially separated from each other. In areas not exposed to light, as in a potato, food storage in the form of starch grains is the main function (Where light is present, e.g. in a leaf, photosynthesis is the main function). The amount of water present in these cells results in them having certain water potentials. Water potential is the amount of water available to move across a membrane from a solution. The process by which water moves across a membrane is known as osmosis and is described as the diffusion of water through a selectively permeable membrane from a region of high water potential to a region of low ...
Cuticle - The cuticle is the waxy layer present on all above-ground tissue of a plant and serves as a barrier to water movement out of a leaf. Because the cuticle is made of wax, it is very hydrophobic or water-repelling; therefore, water does not move through it very easily. The thicker the cuticle layer on a leaf surface, the slower the transpiration rate. Cuticle thickness varies widely among plant species. In general, plants from hot, dry climates have thicker cuticles than plants from cool, moist climates. In addition, leaves that develop under direct sunlight will have much thicker cuticles than leaves that develop under shade conditions.. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS - Some environmental conditions create the driving force for movement of water out of the plant. Others alter the plants ability to control water loss.. ...

The most abundant compound in all plants, as in all cellular organisms, is water, which serves an important structural role and a vital role in plant metabolism. Transpiration is the main process of water movement within plant tissues. Water is constantly transpired from the plant through its stomata to the atmosphere and replaced by soil water taken up by the roots. The movement of water out of the leaf stomata creates a transpiration pull or tension in the water column in the xylem vessels or tracheids. The pull is the result of water surface tension within the cell walls of the mesophyll cells, from the surfaces of which evaporation takes place when the stomata are open. Hydrogen bonds exist between water molecules, causing them to line up; as the molecules at the top of the plant evaporate, each pulls the next one up to replace it, which in turn pulls on the next one in line. The draw of water upwards may be entirely passive and can be assisted by the movement of water into the roots via ...
A strict pot experiment involving red clover (Trifolium pretense L.) was carried out by means of complete randomization in four replications in 2004, in a vegetation hall at UWM in Olsztyn. The first experimental factor were varieties: Bona - 4n and Dajana - 2n, the second - seed stimulation...
A potometer (from Greek ποτό = drunken, and μέτρο = measure) -sometimes known as a transpirometer- is a device used for measuring the rate of water uptake of a leafy shoot. The causes of water uptake are photosynthesis and transpiration.[1] Everything must be completely water tight so that no leakage of water occurs.. There are two main types of potometers used - the bubble potometer (as detailed below), and the mass potometer. The mass potometer consists of a plant with its root submerged in a beaker. This beaker is then placed on a digital balance; readings can be made to determine the amount of water lost by the plant. The mass potometer measures the water lost through transpiration of the plant and not the water taken up by the plant.. ...
Responses to environmental perturbations that promote ROS production but do not provoke oxidative stress or cell death are common and important in understanding how plants adapt to their environment. However, there is very little information concerning the underlying signaling responses involving ROS from chloroplasts in such situations. Here, we describe one emerging example.. In bundle sheath cells (BSCs) of leaves exposed to a moderate increase in light intensity and low humidity, ABA signaling is suggested to interact with a chloroplast-sourced H2O2 signal to drive the induction of high-light, ABA-responsive genes (Galvez-Valdivieso et al., 2009). Within 30 min of exposure to high light at ambient or lower humidity, ABA biosynthesis is activated in vascular parenchyma cells triggered by a transient lowering of leaf water potential, which is caused by a rapid increase in transpiration. The ABA secreted from vascular parenchyma interacts with BSCs and induces the antioxidant gene ASCORBATE ...

Perhaps the most fundamental and important feature of an aquifer, a discrete groundwater flow system or a watershed are the relative rates of groundwater recharge and discharge; a balance frequently evaluated using a water budget. A simple form of a water budget for a watershed under natural conditions can be represented by equation 1 below:. Equation 1 P = ET + Qrunoff + Qgwd +/- ∆ Storage where P represents precipitation, ET represents the combined quantities of evaporation and transpiration by plants, Q runoff represents direct runoff of precipitation, Qgwd represents groundwater discharge to streams or the coast and +/- ∆ Storage represents a change in the amount of water stored in the system. All units are reported in the equivalent depth across the system (i.e. watershed), and generally +/- ∆ Storage is considered to be negligible. When groundwater is extracted from the system, an additional term Q gw ext can be added to the right hand side of the equation as shown in equation 2 ...

Sir Isaac Newtons college notes detail the movement of water from roots to leaves - thus describing a process akin to transpiration.
tive force by any voluntary operation, which would be one of the prerogatives of life; they draw it from the calorific energy stored up in the organs traversed by the blood. Besides, there is a fixed relation between the quantity of heat that disappears and the mechanical labor that appears. Yet, it is to be remarked that, if all motion by living beings is a transformation of animal heat, that heat is not wholly transformed into motion. It is partly wasted by transpiration through the skin, by touch, and especially by radiation; it is used in keeping up to a constant point the temperature of the animal, subjected to many causes of refrigeration.. The mechanical labor performed by an animal is very complex. Independently of visible muscular motions, there are all the changes of place in the interior organs, the continual passage of the blood, the contractions and dilatations of a great number of parts. Now, these actions are only possible in so far as the phenomena of breathing are taking place ...
In the mid-1970s, students of media and communication studies in the German-speaking world heard from Hertha Sturm and her team that they had discovered the missing half-second. In Sturms view, television needed to broadcast slower image sequences; audio and video needed to be more congruent; the text or spoken language should follow the images or vice versa, rather than supplying additional information. For as the researchers found, their test subjects (mainly children) were unable to process the excessive amount of information properly and their reactions were quite simply too slow for the abundance of images. As a result, children reacted happily to sad image sequences and unhappily to cheerful ones. The test subjects mood was gauged by measuring pulse, heartbeat, and transpiration, giving a curve of physical arousal indicating mood (or rather allowing it to be deduced) with low frequency pointing to a depressive basic mood and high frequency pointing to high spirits. The reason for ...
