al., 2019 ; Xiong et al., 2018 ). Its nut contains large amounts of starch, protein, and soluble sugars, and relatively low amounts of fat ( Fan et al., 2015 ). Because of its preferred taste and health benefits, chinquapin is one of the most

a starch increase of 100- and 200-fold in hypocotyls of bottle gourd and interspecific hybrid squash rootstocks, respectively, over 21 d after fatty alcohol treatment ( Daley et al., 2014 ). We hypothesize that this increase of stored energy in the

analogous to the triploid endosperm of angiosperm seeds. Studies of cycad megagametophytes may increase our understanding of evolution of the angiosperm endosperm ( Brenner et al., 2003 ). The starch content of cycad megagametophyte tissue has been exploited

Total starch and amylose (AM) concentration and a starch index (SI) were determined in `Fuji' apple (Malus domestica Borkh.) fruit from weekly harvests in 1990 and 1991. As apples matured, SI scores increased and total starch and amylose content decreased. The percentage of AM in the total starch decreased as the apples matured. Because KI solutions interact efficiently only with AM, the SI is less reliable in representing total starch during later stages of `Fuji' apple maturation.

Two cultivars of greenhouse tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) were grown with ambient or 1000 μl CO2/liter during Jan.-June 1987 and 1988. In both years, CO2-enrichment increased foliar deformation and foliar starch, but during the season, foliar starch levels decreased while deformation increased. `Laura' had more deformation, while `Michigan-Ohio' had higher foliar starch concentration. During an entire season, there was no significant relationship between foliar starch concentration and deformation severity. Foliar C exchange rates in the lower canopy were not affected by severity of deformation. Data from these experiments do not support the hypothesis that excess foliar starch is responsible for foliar deformation at elevated CO2.
