Abstract Share this page

The leaf surface wax of plants growing wild under arid conditions was greater than under naturally irrigated conditions. The effect was most apparent for the large-leaf form of Pistacia lentiscus, substantially larger deposits occurring on the leaves of non-irrigated plants (79 μg cm-2) than on leaves of irrigated plants (18 μg cm-2). The least effect was noted with the small but thick leaves of olive cultivars, the deposits on non-irrigated and irrigated leaves being respectively cv Carolia (188 and 168 μg cm-2) and cv Frantoio (262 and 220 μg cm-2).
