Abstract
THE INVESTIGATION OF PHOTOSYNTHETIC PROCESSES IS LIMITED BY CHEMICAL ANALYSIS TECHNOLOGY. NO SATISFACTORY METHOD EXISTS FOR EITHER MAKING INVASIVE MEASUREMENTS WITHIN, OR INTHE MICROENVIRONMENT AROUND, LIVING PLANTS. THE OBJECTIVE OOF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP A SUITE OF HIGHLY MINIA TURIZED FIBER OPTIC PROBES (OPTRODES) FOR THE IN SITU DETERMINATION OF THE PHOTOSYNTHETICALLY EXCHANGE GASES: CO2, 02, AND H20, AND H20. THE OPTRODE WILL PROVIDE NEEDED VERIFICATION OF ASSUMPTIONS REGARDING THE COMPOSITION OF THEINTERNAL AND EXTERNAL ATMOSPHERE OF PLANT LEAVES, AND OF THESOIL ATOMSPHERE AND RESPIRATION BY BELOW-GROUND PLANT STRUCTURES.
