A d.c. electric potential termed as plant bioelectropotential (BEPI is generated in a plant body. It is monitored by a simple circuit comprising of a calomel reference electrode in the root vicinity, a thin platinum electrode inserted into any part of a plant and a high impedance (N-- 10124 voltmeter. Bioelectropotential measurements have been made under varying conditions of respiration of germinating seeds and of photosynthetic activity of Hydrilla Verticillata. On the basis of the experimental evidences it has been concluded that the plant BEP originates as a result of various redox couples of the electron transport processes of the respiration and photosynthesis.
