  • Porosity Evaluation of Ginseng Roots from Real-Time Imaging and Mass Measurements 

    Martynenko, Alex I.. 2011. "Porosity Evaluation of Ginseng Roots from Real-Time Imaging and Mass Measurements." Food and Bioprocess Technology 4(3): 417-428.
    Real-time imaging and mass measurements were used for evaluation of instantaneous porosity in convective drying of ginseng roots. Porosity changes were evaluated from moisture-shrinkage-porosity correlation. It was found ...

  • The System of Correlations Between Moisture, Shrinkage, Density, and Porosity 

    Martynenko, Alex. 2008. "The System of Correlations Between Moisture, Shrinkage, Density, and Porosity." Drying Technology 26(12): 1497-1500.
    The system of four correlations, establishing relationship between moisture, shrinkage, density, and porosity in three-phase capillary-porous materials was introduced. It is based on the fundamental relationship between ...
  • Ethylene triggers needle abscission in root-detached balsam fir 

    MacDonald, Mason T., Rajasekaran R. Lada, Alex I. Martynenko, Martine Dorais, et al. 2010. "Ethylene triggers needle abscission in root-detached balsam fir." Trees-Structure and Function 24(5): 879-886.
    Post-harvest needle abscission is a major challenge for Christmas tree and greenery industries. It was hypothesized that ethylene triggers abscission in balsam fir. Three experiments were conducted to test this hypothesis. ...
  • Is There a Relationship between Ethylene Evolution, Ethylene Sensitivity, and Needle Abscission in Root-Detached Balsam Fir? 

    MacDonald, M. T., R. R. Lada, A. I. Martynenko, S. Pepin, et al. 2012. "Is There a Relationship between Ethylene Evolution, Ethylene Sensitivity, and Needle Abscission in Root-Detached Balsam Fir?." Xxviii International Horticultural Congress on Science and Horticulture for People (Ihc2010): International Symposium on Plant Physiology from Cell to Fruit Production System 932: 405-411.
    Balsam fir is an important horticultural crop of Atlantic Canada, valued at approximately $72 million each year being used as Christmas trees and for greenery products. However, needle abscission adversely affects the ...
  • Ethylene Exposure Duration Affects Postharvest Needle Abscission in Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea L.) 

    MacDonald, Mason T., Rajasekaran R. Lada, Alex I. Martynenko, Martine Dorais, et al. 2011. "Ethylene Exposure Duration Affects Postharvest Needle Abscission in Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea L.)." HortScience 46(2): 260-264.
    Needle loss after harvest is a major problem for Atlantic Canada's Christmas tree and greenery industry. Ethylene is a signal for abscission in balsam fir, but preliminary studies have suggested that the role of ethylene ...
