Abstract

The tomato mutant flacca wilts rapidly under water deficit because its stomata resist closure. Application of abscisic acid to intact mutant plants changes their morphology toward the phenotype of the control normal variety, Rheinlands Ruhm. The treated mutant plants do not show wilting symptoms, and the resistance to closure of their stomata decreases with hormone treatment.
