In Vivo Magnetic Resonance Microscopy of Changing Water Content in Pelargonium hortorum Roots.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to nondestructively observe changes in water content in roots of Pelargonium hortorum x Bailey during a period of relatively rapid transpiration. Anatomical regions of the root could be differentiated with a spatial resolution of 0.1 x 0.1 mm. MRI shows great potential for study of plant-water relations.
