Neither xylem collapse, cavitation, or changing leaf conductance drive stomatal closure in wheat

Identifying the drivers of stomatal closure and leaf damage during stress in grasses is a critical prerequisite for understanding crop resilience. Here, we investigated whether changes in stomatal conductance (gs) during dehydration were associated with changes in leaf…

Stomatal responses to vapour pressure deficit are regulated by high speed gene expression in angiosperms

McAdam, S. A. M., Sussmilch, F. C., and Brodribb, T. J. (2016) Stomatal responses to vapour pressure deficit are regulated by high speed gene expression in angiosperms. Plant, Cell & Environment, 39: 485–491. doi: 10.1111/pce.12633.

Plants dynamically regulate water use by the movement of stomata on the surface of leaves. Stomatal responses to changes in vapour pressure deficit (VPD) are the principal regulator of daytime transpiration and water use efficiency in land plants….
