Leaves, not roots or floral tissue, are the main site of rapid, external pressure-induced ABA biosynthesis in angiosperms

Feng-Ping Zhang, Frances Sussmilch, David S Nichols, Amanda A Cardoso, Timothy J Brodribb, Scott A M McAdam; Leaves, not roots or floral tissue, are the main site of rapid, external pressure-induced ABA biosynthesis in angiosperms, Journal of Experimental Botany, Volume 69, Issue 5, 23 February 2018, Pages 1261–1267, https://doi.org/10.1093/jxb/erx480

Rapid biosynthesis of abscisic acid (ABA) in the leaf, triggered by a decrease in cell volume, is essential for a functional stomatal response. However, it is not known whether rapid biosynthesis of ABA is also triggered in other…

Coordinated plasticity maintains hydraulic safety in sunflower leaves

Cardoso AA, Brodribb TJ, Lucani CJ, DaMatta FM, McAdam SAM. Coordinated plasticity maintains hydraulic safety in sunflower leaves. Plant Cell Environ. 2018. https://doi.org/10.1111/pce.13335

The air‐seeding threshold water potential establishes a hydraulic limit on the ability of woody species to survive in water‐limiting environments, but herbs may be more plastic in terms of their ability to adapt to drying conditions. Here we…

Similar geometric rules govern the distribution of veins and stomata in petals, sepals and leaves

Zhang, F. , Carins Murphy, M. R., Cardoso, A. A., Jordan, G. J. and Brodribb, T. J. (2018), Similar geometric rules govern the distribution of veins and stomata in petals, sepals and leaves. New Phytol. . doi:10.1111/nph.15210

Investment in leaf veins (supplying xylem water) is balanced by stomatal abundance, such that sufficient water transport is provided for stomata to remain open when soil water is abundant. This coordination is mediated by a common dependence of…
