Osmotic potential (π) of tree leaves is usually determined by pressure-volume (PV) analysis, which is too time consuming for large-scale assessments such as ecological surveys and genetic screening. We investigated methods for rapid measurement of π in sclerophyllous species. The osmotic potential of expressed sap (ES), freeze-thaw leaf discs and hot water extracts - measured using a variety of techniques - were compared with PV analysis using sclerophyllous species; Eucalyptus globulus Labill… CONTINUE READING
