dc.description.abstract Sucrose, a plant sugar, is one of the main products of photosynthesis as it helps to promote floral transition in many plant species. Media with sucrose can also be used to grow plants for research. High concentrations of sucrose will cause an increase in the number of leaves at the time of flowering in the Arabidopsis thaliana plant. Sucrose is transported from the leaves via the phloem in order to provide the rest of the plant with carbon and energy for growth and storage product synthesis. In nature, plants and fungi can compete directly for sucrose and other soil nutrients. It is hypothesized that an increase in fungal growth will result from plating Arabidopsis thaliana seeds on MS agar with added Sucrose. en_US
