Print/Download as PDF

I am a grade nine student at Nicholson Catholic College in Belleville, Ontario, with an interest in science, writing and fine arts. I have received several awards at previous science fairs at a regional level and a silver medal with my partner when we attended the 2006 CWSF for our project on surface changes and the migratory paths of leopard frogs. I enjoy soccer, badminton and running and do volunteer tutoring at a local elementary school. I received the award for the top academic standing in my pre IB junior high school program last year. I am attending a French language program in Quebec City this summer.

Priming and exogenous treatments for salt stress in Phaseolus vulgaris.
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences / Environmental Innovation
City:Picton, ON
School:Nicholson Catholic College
Abstract:Saline soil has become an increasing problem globally. The effects of priming with NaCl, glycine betaine and H2O2, and of exogenous applications of inoculant, salicylic acid, glycine betaine, silicon, CaSO4 and KH2PO4 on Phaseolus vulgaris grown under salt stress, were compared in two greenhouse trials. Exogenous applications of inoculant and silicon produced significant ameliorative treatment effects on mean shoot length; inoculant on fresh weight.
