- ... Nitrogen deficiency in cotton plants (Gossypium hirsutum L.) increased the threshold water potentials for both stomatal closure and leaf senescence (defined as loss of chlorophyll and protein) during drought. These studies attempted to answer two questions: (1) What is the basis for the N/water interaction on senescence? (2) Is there a direct relationship between stomatal closure and senescence? Y ...
