1995; Sellers et al. 1997). Over the short term, plants respond to soil and plant water deficits by reducing stomatal conductance and water loss. Over the longer term, adjustments in architecture and intrinsic physiology can occur. Leaf shedding and root growth triggered by water stress (Linder et al. 1987; Tyree et al. 1993) result in an increased root-to-leaf ratio (A R :A L) that favours a high water balance during drought. Osmotic adjustment and increased resistance to xylem cavitation… CONTINUE READING
