In addition, the intrusive growth is realized by diffuse growth, i.e., the whole surface of the fiber is elongating (Gorshkova et al., 2003b) even though the diffuse elongation can have different rates over the fiber length which explains the formation of knees and tapered ends (Ageeva et al., 2005).

Ecol. Asymmetric expression of a poplar ACC oxidase controls ethylene production during gravitational induction of tension wood. Gubbels and Kenaschuk (1989) confirmed this result, if reasonably high sowing rate is used (below 400 seeds/m2, the opposite phenomenon is obtained, but this sowing rate is anyway not appropriate for industrial cultivation).

Random Thoughts and Queries on the Botany of Cannabis. J. Exp. The phenomenon of flax lodging is illustrated in Figure 9. The present work proposes a review of the literature to highlight possible links between the characteristics of flax plants and their possible impact on the fibers performances. Last but not least, the shape of the fibers along their length is highly modified, as fibers exhibit “sausage-like” shape with a deposition of callose, a polysaccharide generally present in injured cell walls (Snegireva et al., 2010), in the fiber thinner zones.

In the case of flax-based composite materials, the fibrous part or reinforcement consists of either technical flax fibers or short fibers, impregnated with a polymer matrix. Figure 2 also shows imperfections, such as a heterogeneous fiber thickening within the same bundle for a given cross-section, which is part of this natural composite structure. 61, 705–720. Compos. Can. doi: 10.2307/2845499, Py, C., De Langre, E., and Moulia, B. Besides, this type of cell exhibits an impressively thick cell wall, as this latter can reach a ten micrometers in thickness, i.e., around 10 times thicker than most other cell types (Mikshina et al., 2013). This remarkable cell wall layer that is the G-layer has led to the term “G-fiber” sometimes used to name the fibers having such a layer (Bowling and Vaughn, 2008; Roussel and Clair, 2015; Ibragimova et al., 2017). More recently, started about 200 years ago, breeders have been crossing plants and have been selecting new varieties to provide improved plants; this process is called varietal selection and could be referred to as “selective breeding” (Evert and Eichorn, 2013). This undesired event is also a major selection criterion for rice or wheat (Crook and Ennos, 1994; Oladokun and Ennos, 2006). J.

When the gust frequency reaches the natural frequency of the plants, a resonant interaction results in a more pronounced waving and stronger honami which may lead to crop damage such as lodging (Finnigan, 1979).

Effect of seeding rate on plant and seed characteristics of new flax cultivars. Ind. CG organized and wrote the manuscript. This additional type of breeding is considered beyond the scope of this work, and will not be presently discussed. Figure 1. Fiber elongation continues with intrusive growth, when the rate of fiber longitudinal growth exceeds that of neighboring cells still growing by symplastic growth; in this case, the fiber cell forces its way in between other cells and both of its ends form a “knee” being the characteristic of the beginning of the intrusive growth (Figure 3) (McDougall et al., 1993; Ageeva et al., 2005).

(1979) suggested that solid stems of some wheat cultivars, i.e., filled with pith, have a greater apparent stiffness thus an increased resistance to lodging than cultivars having the hollow stems.

Actually, gravisensing is accompanied by sensing of local curvature, so-called proprioception, that enables the control of the straightening autotropic response and posture control (Moulia et al., 2006).

In a complementary manner, the average distance between plants is a parameter to consider when modeling the coupling between plants (Py et al., 2006) so the effects of elastic contacts between neighboring crops along a row have been assessed; collisions were found to increase the resonant frequency of individual plants while providing additional support to the stems (Doaré et al., 2004).

Finally, the authors kindly thank Chloé Joly (IRDL) who post-edited the English style and grammar. Development of a model of lodging for barley. More recently, like other industrial crops, humans have purposely been crossing and selecting flax plants to produce improved varieties. The lodging phenomenon is of crucial importance, as it can greatly impact the process of flax harvesting together with fiber yields (Vera et al., 2012). Ind. J. The scaling of plant height: a comparison among major plant clades and anatomical grades. Front. Moreover, studies on numerous plant species report an adaptive growth response to external stimuli (Jaffe, 1973; Grace and Russell, 1977; Biddington, 1986); these latter are a possible approach toward the understanding of flax slenderness, stability, and overall biomechanics. Regarding the empirical knowledge of flax farmers, root lodging is rare and, therefore, the given review of lodging mechanisms focuses essentially on stem lodging and structural elements relevant to the lodging vulnerability.

Thus, this selection is an artificial process that would not occur naturally. J. Bot. Among the different plants cultivated by man for fiber production, flax has many particularities that make it a unique model of development and architecture (Mikshina et al., 2013). doi: 10.4141/cjps96-114, Lancashire, P.

Thus, even if little is known about the impact of gravitropism on the mechanical properties of flax fibers and stems, changes in fiber thickening and morphology would most probably influence the fiber mechanical properties and their homogeneity. Acclimation of mechanical and hydraulic functions in trees: impact of the thigmomorphogenetic process. Appl. The authors also warmly thank Nicole Brunel-Michac (INRA Clermont-Ferrand) for preparing the samples and providing pictures of flax stem cross-sections, and David Siniscalco (IRDL) for his technical support on AFM measurements. (2017) demonstrates that the remaining curvature occurs in a stem part that has already ceased fiber elongation (much below the snap point). Euphytica 4, 197–205. Methods for rapidly measuring the lodging resistance of wheat cultivars. Field Crop Res. Short Communication: comparative effect of lodging on seed yield of flax and wheat. In the absence of plants, the horizontal distribution of wind mean velocity is logarithmic, increasing with the height, and exists as a so-called boundary layer flow (Finnigan, 2000; de Langre, 2008). A common feature of natural fibers is a much higher variability of mechanical properties. Ind. As a complement to Table 1, the main tissues or cells visible on a transverse cross-section are identified in Figure 2, with fibers gathered in bundles (up to 40 cells per bundle; McDougall et al., 1993) present at the periphery of the section. The understanding of this phenomenon, challenging the biomechanics of flax plants, is the subject of the next section.

The information given in Table 1 presents a general classification based on literature about plant structures, that slightly differs between authors (Romberger et al., 1993; Gartner, 1995; van Dam and Gorshkova, 2003; Evert, 2006; Schweingruber et al., 2006; Evert and Eichorn, 2013); in addition, this present classification focuses on main cell types found in flax stems so is not exhaustive. These two opposite types of biomechanical responses allow the plants to reach a better resistance to mechanical failure; indeed, increasing the elastic resilience [like it is the case for bean plants Phaseolus vulgaris (Jaffe et al., 1984) or Arabidopsis thaliana (Paul-Victor and Rowe, 2011)] enables the plants to remain within their elastic limits for greater loads than unstimulated ones, whereas increasing the flexural stiffness [like tomato Lycopersicon esculentum stems (Coutand et al., 2000) or Pinus taeda pine trees (Telewski and Jaffe, 1986)] avoids exceeding the strain limit. Planta 222, 565–574. Finally, the plant motion is defined by several plant parameters, namely, its natural resonance frequency, its flexural stiffness and modal mass, a reference damping, and a modal displacement shape (de Langre, 2008).
