Hydraulic architecture of deciduous and evergreen dry rainforest tree species from north-eastern Australia

Choat, Brendan; Ball, Marilyn; Luly, Jon G; Holtum, Joseph A M


Hydraulic conductivity and xylem anatomy were examined in stems of two evergreen species, Alphitonia excelsa (Fenzal) Benth. and Austromyrtus bidwillii (Benth.) Burret., and two drought-deciduous species, Brachychiton australis (Schott and Endl.) A. Terracc. and Cochlospermum gillivraei Benth., from a seasonally dry rainforest in north Queensland, Australia.
