I have been trying to find such a method myself, looking particularly at
work by LJM Van der Eerden, but have not found anything yet.
One thought would be to place leaves in a vacuum chamber with
ammonia-absorbing sponges, such as those used in studies of NH3
volitalization from soil (e.g.
Grant et al. 1996, Can J Soil Sci 76:417).
If you learn of a simple and effective technique, I would appreciate learning
of it as well. Thanks.
