||X ray microanalysis
and Storey (1993, primary source) used the technique [X ray microanalysis] to measure the relative peak
heights for potassium, sodium, calcium, phosphorus and chlorine in X ray
microanalysis spectra of vacuoles of epidermal and mesophyll cells in leaves
of barley plants grown under a variety of nutrient treatments. They showed
that the composition of the vacuoles in each cell type was quite distinct, with
calcium and chlorine being detectable in epidermal cells but not in mesophyll
cells, whereas the reverse is true for phosphorus (Table I)."
