Evaluation of resistance of selected plant species to dry stress and high temperatures - experiment preparation

Preparatory work is underway to conduct an experiment aimed at testing the resistance of selected plant species to abiotic stress factors – drought and high temperature under controlled conditions.

These factors most often occur on green walls and roofs in cities. We will conduct the experiment in a phytotron chamber, where we will simulate extreme climatic conditions. The substrate for growing plants has already been prepared. We are currently investigating the variability of its moisture content, depending on the amount of water introduced. We will start the experiment in April 2021.
