Plant hydration dynamics: measurement and uptake pathways

Fuenzalida Gasman, Tomas


Transpiration accounts for most terrestrial water fluxes, and agriculture uses most of the water managed by humans. Transpiration is tightly regulated by plants, so climate models and irrigation water use efficiency could be improved by understanding how plants regulate water status. In this work, I address questions that are relevant to our understanding of plant hydration dynamics: (1) Can foliar water uptake (FWU) restore leaf hydraulic conductance (Kleaf) lost due to dehydration? (2) Is...[Show more]
