Water loss from leaf mesophyll stripped of the epidermis

Canny, Martin


Water vapour flux (rate of water loss) from the mesophyll of isolated Agapanthus praecox Willd. leaf pieces without an epidermis was investigated by loss of mass into unstirred air at relative humidities (RHs) of 0.993-0.850, compared with the rate from a water atmometer (rate of evaporation). The point at which relative evaporation (RE, the rate of water loss divided by the rate of evaporation) reaches <1 inadequately identifies the onset of mesophyll regulation because values >1 were found....[Show more]
