The stress induced volatile emissions technique (SIVE) uses gas chromatography to measure the levels of certain gases (such as acetaldehyde.ethane, ethanol, or ethylene) which are released in a response to a given stress by plant tissue (needles and stems). This manual is intended to give a short outline of the technique. It provides instructions necessary to sample the tissue, to run the samples through the gas chromatography (GC) ensuring safe operation at all times, to collect the data for analysis by computer and to pack the two analytical columns utilized in this procedure.
