Water stress trials at Arkansas State University

Using an HTS Scanalyzer with RGB-, NIR-, and fluorescence cameras, researchers generated 4320 images of Arabidopsis plants in a drought study. Growth responses, water content, and chlorophyll-originating fluorescence signals were used to physiologically characterise the responses of the plants towards water limitation in different severities. Together with ionomic data, phenotypic data help to understand mecahnisms of plants coping with low water availability. The results were published in Functional Plant Biology:
