Passive origins of stomatal control in vascular plants

Brodribb T.J., McAdam S.A.M. (2011) Passive origins of stomatal control in vascular plants. Science, 331: 581-585.

Carbon and water flow between plants and the atmosphere is regulated by the opening and closing of minute stomatal pores in surfaces of leaves. By changing the aperture of stomata, plants regulate water loss and photosynthetic carbon gain…
