Allelopathic Interactions

Scanning electron microscope examination of adaxial leaf surfaces of Salvia reflexa revealed specialized structures from which chemical release was apparently promoted by immersion in water. The significance of these structures and their contents has been discussed in relation to the allelopathic activity of this species (Lovett and Speak 1979).
