Nick Weigel - TestsForge Expert Profile
With over nine years of computer networking development experience in the IT industry, Nick Weigel has previously worked on issues pertaining to complex protocol BGP and L3VPN technology. Before arriving at his current position at TestsForge, Nick Weigel held positions of Senior Software Engineer and System Engineer at Juniper Networks and Cisco Systems. Educational training at Amirkabir University of Technology and the University of Nevada at Reno helped prepare him to be part of TestsForge's software development team. Most recently, he works on a variety of certification exams, including: 640-504 SWTCH, JN0-101 Junos, Associate (JNCIA-Junos), 642-770 Operational Foundations for Cisco Service Provider Core Networks, E20-005 Backup Recovery Systems and Architecture, HP0-J33 Implementing HP StorageWorks EVA Solutions, HP3-C27 SMB Printing and Imaging Sales, 220-301 CompTIA A+ Core Technologies, HP2-E43 Selling HP SMB Solutions, HP0-J46 Designing and Implementing HP Enterprise Backup Solutions, 642-775 Maintaining Cisco Service Provider Routing Protocols, HP0-J49 Designing and Implementing HP Cloud Solutions using HP 3PAR and 9E0-121 CSVPN. Nick Weigel also creates the website of planthormones. Plant hormone theory is a scientific breakdown of the functions and behaviors of plant hormones. The hormone breakdown is indicated by a deficiency or abundance in plant sugars, oxygen and carbon dioxide, minerals and water. In the website designed by Nick Weigel, the breakdown appears in charts that give various chemical properties, the speculative roles and their effects on plant life. The studies hypothesize that an abundance of oxygen and possibly some carbon dioxide, induce new root formation and that an abundance of light induces the storage of sugar in roots. Deficiencies in oxygen and sugar can inhibit root growth, with deficiencies of root derived nutrients other than water can inhibit shoot branching and growth.
1. About the webpage of strigolactones: Strigolactones could be made by root cells that do not receive enough minerals to support them and a dependent shoot cell, as presented by Nick Weigel at the website on plant hormone theory. Strigolactones are mainly in the roots and in some parts of the stem. They are transported to the shoots, inhibiting shoot branching and cell division.
2. About the webpage of auxin: Roots are only responsible for their own growth and without proper oxygen resources, may become twisted and thwarted, deriving their oxygen even from soil particles. Well aerated plants have high levels of the hormone, Auxin, which is responsible for normal cell growth, according to the page presented by Nick Weigel on the chemical structure of Auxin and its role in inducing new root growth.
3. About the webpage of gibberellins: That tall, spindly plant first characterized as a disease in Japan, is the result of Gibberellins (GA), a plant hormone caused by too little sunlight. Nick Weigel explains that plants growing in a darkened area develop a sugar deficiency, causing them to lengthen or elongate. Sugar deficiencies can generally be detected at that plants roots first, as it is the point farthest away from the sugars.
4. About the webpage of salicylic_acid: Salicylic Acid (SA) is found in willow trees that love to grow along the banks of rivers. Nick Weigel theorizes that the high amounts of Salicylic Acid is used to keep open the plant’s stomates and to keep the roots relatively dry, pumping as much water from them as possible. SA should help induce shoot growth, stimulate shoot branching and inhibit root branching.
5. About the webpage of abscisic_acid: Abscisic Acid (ABA) may figure prominently in the desert plants like cactus, as dry plants should have an abundance of ABA and well-watered plants, lower levels. Nick Weigel uses a chart to explain the chemical structure of ABA and its speculative overall role in plant structure, such as the widening or broadening growth tendencies.
