Introduction. Plants need resources such as water, nutrients and light to grow. Under dense vegetation, light is a limited resource and competition for light can strongly influence the success of a plant (Pierik & de Wit ).Plants have evolved sophisticated mechanisms mediated by phytochromes that allow them to detect the early presence of neighbouring plants and to Cited by: 7.

A response defined by the experimenter, e.g., pressing a lever in a ‘Skinner box’ or running and/or jumping over a hurdle to the opposite side of a two-compartment chamber (a ‘shuttle box’), terminates the WS and prevents the occurrence of the shock.

This is an avoidance response. Failure to avoid in the presence of the WS results in. An alternative avoidance response might be devised to target the cause of the risk, where this is identified.

Re-moving the source (or breaking the causal chain) can make it impossible for the risk to occur, thus eliminating the un-certainty. Indirect avoidance responses involve doing the project in a different way, which can also eliminate File Size: 84KB.

Residual risk is the amount of uncertainly remaining after applying the selected Risk Response Plan, for example, Risk Mitigation.

To detect the presence of neighboring vegetation, shade-avoiding plants have evolved the ability to perceive and integrate multiple signals. Among them, changes in light quality and quantity are central to elicit and regulate the shade avoidance response. Here, we describe recent progresses in the comprehension of the signaling mechanisms underlying the shade avoidance response, Cited by: 3.
