Xylem embolism and stomatal regulation in two rubber clones (Hevea brasiliensis Muell. Arg.) Abstract Vulnerability to water-stress-induced embolism of stems, petioles, and leaf midribs was evaluated for two rubber clones (RRIM600 and RRIT251). The xylem conduits were relatively vulnerable to cavitation with 50% of embolism measured for xylem pressures(More)
The crop sensitivity to ozone (O3) is affected by the timing of the O3 exposure, by the O3 concentration, and by the crop age. To determine the physiological response to the acute ozone stress, tomato plants were exposed to O3 at two growth stages. In Experiment I (Exp. I), O3 (500 μg m−3) was applied to 30-d-old plants (PL30). In Experiment II (Exp. II),(More)
The geometrical structure of plant canopies has many implications for plant functioning, microclimatic conditions, and plant-pathogen/herbivore interactions. Plant geometry can be described at several scales. At the finest scale, canopy structure includes the shape, size, location, and orientation of each organ in the canopy. This data set reports the(More)
Natural rubber is a valuable source of income in many tropical countries and rubber trees are increasingly planted in tropical areas, where they contribute to land-use changes that impact the global carbon cycle. However, little is known about the carbon balance of these plantations. We studied the soil carbon balance of a 15-year-old rubber plantation in(More)
Fine roots (FR) play a major role in the water and nutrient uptake of plants and contribute significantly to the carbon and nutrient cycles of ecosystems through their annual production and turnover. FR growth dynamics were studied to understand the endogenous and exogenous factors driving these processes in a 14-year-old plantation of rubber trees located(More)
