Leaf hydraulics and drought stress: response, recovery and survivorship in four woody temperate plant speciespce_2023

Blackman CJ, Brodribb TJ, Jordan GJ, (2009) 'Leaf hydraulics and drought stress: response, recovery and survivorship in four woody temperate plant species', Plant, Cell and Environment, vol.32, pp 1584-1595

Efficient conduction of water inside leaves is essential for leaf function, yet the hydraulic-mediated impact of drought on gas exchange remains poorly understood. Here we examine the decline and subsequent recovery of leaf water potential (Yleaf), leaf hydraulic…

Minimum hydraulic safety leads to maximum water-use efficiency in a forage grass

Holloway-Phillips MM, Brodribb TJ. 2011. Minimum hydraulic safety leads to maximum water-use efficiency in a forage grass. Plant Cell and Environment 34: 302-313.

Understanding how water-use regulation relates to biomass accumulation is imperative for improving crop production in water-limited environments. Here, we examine how the vulnerability of xylem to water stress-induced cavitation and the coordination between water transport capacity and assimilation…
