Shoot surface water uptake enables leaf hydraulic recovery in Avicennia marina

Fuenzalida, Tomás; Bryant, Callum; Ovington, Leuwin; Yoon, Hwan-Jin; Oliveira, Rafael S; Sack, Lawren; Ball, Marilyn


The significance of shoot surface water uptake (SSWU) has been debated, and it would depend on the range of conditions under which it occurs. We hypothesized that the decline of leaf hydraulic conductance (Kleaf ) in response to dehydration may be recovered through SSWU, and that the hydraulic conductance to SSWU (Ksurf ) declines with dehydration. We quantified effects of leaf dehydration on Ksurf and effects of SSWU on recovery of Kleaf in dehydrated leaves of Avicennia marina. SSWU led to...[Show more]
