Are Radishes Really Allelopathic to Lettuce?
Santaniello, Catherine M.; Koning, Ross E.
American Biology Teacher, v58 n2 p102-03 Feb 1996
Presents an experiment that challenges the claim that sprouting radish seedlings release chemicals into the environment that inhibit germination of lettuce seeds. Reports that although no simple allelopathic demonstration was observed, the experiment provides fertile ground for further experimentation in inquiry-based laboratory experiences. (JRH)
