A steady-state stomatal model of balanced leaf gas exchange, hydraulics and maximal source-sink flux.

Abstract

Trees must simultaneously balance their CO2 uptake rate via stomata, photosynthesis, the transport rate of sugars and rate of sugar utilization in sinks while maintaining a favourable water and carbon balance. We demonstrate using a numerical model that it is possible to understand stomatal functioning from the viewpoint of maximizing the simultaneous… (More)
