Pit membrane porosity and water stress-induced cavitation in four coexisting dry rainforest tree species

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


Aspects of xylem anatomy and vulnerability to water stress-induced embolism were examined in stems of two drought-deciduous species, Brachychiton australis (Schott and Endl.) A. Terracc. and Cochlospermum gillivraei Benth., and two evergreen species, Alphitonia excelsa (Fenzal) Benth. and Austromyrtus bidwillii (Benth.) Burret., growing in a seasonally dry rainforest. The deciduous species were more vulnerable to water stress-induced xylem embolism. B. australis and C. gillivraei reached a 50%...[Show more]
