Abstract The study of cellular effects of herbicides, as well as other plant growth-regulating substances, has received increased emphasis in recent years. Generally, three important biochemical inhibitory processes have been shown to be involved in herbicide modes-of-action. These are: (1) mitochondrial respiration, or electron transport, in plant species; (2) protein synthesis controlled by DNA-dependent RNA; (3) photosynthesis. The ultimate goal of the project is to develop a method so as to identify and quantify the simultaneous occurrence of these types of inhibition in plant cells when exposed to herbicides and plant growth regulating pesticides. The method will also identify and quantify plant physiological and morphological changes in affected cells and relate these findings to types of inhibition of biochemical processes. This new method could be applicable to the evaluation not only of herbicides but also any other biologically active chemical compounds in plant cells.
