Interesting work, Tom.  I have a couple questions for clarity.

When you say that leaf area increased, do you mean that it increased relative 
to the leaf area prior to the test, or did it increase relative to a control 
population that remained emergent?

With leaf area, are you measuring the area of a single leaf, the total leaf 
area on the plant, or leaf area per plant dry weight?  Maybe something else?
