Seasonal water relations of Lyginia barbata (Southern rush) in relation to root xylem development and summer dormancy of root apices

Shane , Michael W; McCully, Margaret E; Canny, Martin; Pate , John S; Huang, Cheng; Ngo, Hai; Lambers, Hans

Description

Periods of dormancy in shallow roots allow perennial monocotyledons to establish deep root systems, but we know little about patterns of xylem maturation, water-transport capacities and associated economies in water use of growing and dormant roots. Xylem development, anatomy, conductance and in situ cellular [K] and [Cl] were investigated in roots of field-grown Lyginia barbata (Restionaceae) in Mediterranean southwestern Australia. Parallel studies of gas exchange, culm relative water loss...[Show more]
