Re: Plant biology

I'm doing a writing assignment on plant stress physiology. The stress that I chose to research was heat stress. One of the things that I have to do is describe at least 3 experiments that I plan to perform (hypothetically speaking, of course). At least one experiment should be at the molecular/cellular level and the other at the physiological level. I also need to describe why the experiments are being performed. I am having trouble with thinking up some experiments and I have no idea what the molecular/cellular/physiological levels are. That is one of the things confusing me. Can somebody help me think of some experiments??
I posted this on the biology site provided by Ms. Sue and didn't get a straight forward answer from them. And when I do ask a question, it takes a whole day for me to get a response. I need help thinking of some experiments, but I don't know where else I can go for help.
Thanks for reporting back on the Biology Forum.
These sites may help you.
The first thing I suggest you do is choose a plant. African violets, for instance, do not thrive in wide ranges of temperature. Many cacti, though, do seem to do well in temperature extremes.
Once you've chosen a type of plant, use at least three different identical specimens for your experiment. Treat them the same regarding water and light. Vary the heat for each plant.
Thank you so much! This really helped
