Direct measurement of stomatal cell production in barley
A simple method which measures stomatal cell production directly in the first leaf of barley is described. The method was tested with three barley genotypes, two of which, cer-g11 and cer-g1026, are mutants with an abnormal stomatal pattern. Cer-g11 had a slower rate of stomatal cell formation, as compared with the other two genotypes.
