Factors determining stomatal and non-stomatal (residual) transpiration and their contribution towards salinity tolerance in contrasting barley genotypes

Eighty barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) genotypes of different geographical origin and contrasting in salinity stress tolerance were grown under glasshouse conditions and exposed to high salinity stress (300 mM NaCl) for four weeks to investigate the relationship between leaf gas…

Effect of limited water availability on foliar plant secondary metabolites of two Eucalyptus species

AB McKiernan, MJ Hovenden, TJ Brodribb, BM Potts (2014) Effect of limited water availability on foliar plant secondary metabolites of two Eucalyptus species. Environmental and Experimental Botany 105: 55-64

Abstract Plant secondary metabolites (PSMs) have many ecological roles such as influencing decomposition, flammability and herbivory. PSM concentrations are genetically determined, but are also affected by environmental factors. Drought periods are predicted to become more frequent in many…
