Functional status of xylem through time

Water transport in vascular plants represents a critical component of terrestrial water cycles and supplies the water needed for the exchange of CO2 in the atmosphere for photosynthesis. Yet, many fundamental principles of water transport are dif …

Water relations of Calycanthus flowers: Hydraulic conductance, capacitance, and embolism resistance

For most angiosperms, producing and maintaining flowers is critical to sexual repro- duction, yet little is known about the physiological processes involved in maintaining flowers throughout anthesis. Among extant species, flowers of the genus …
