Compensatory function for water transport by adventitious roots of Ipomoea pes-caprae

Abstract

To determine the role of adventitious roots in supplying water to Ipomoea pes-caprae (L.) Sweet (Convolvulaceae), we examined the effects of water deficit on water uptake and the growth patterns of leaves and shoots. After stopping the water supply from the primary root or adventitious roots, the water-uptake rate of the other root system increased steeply… (More)
