Integrated nitrogen, carbon, and water relations of a xylem-tapping mistletoe following nitrogen fertilization of the host

Abstract

Xylem-tapping mistletoes transpire large volumes of water (E) while conducting photosynthesis (A) at low rates, thus maintaining low instantaneous wateruse efficiency (A/E). These gas-exchange characteristics have been interpreted as a means of facilitating assimilation of nitrogen dissolved at low concentration in host xylem water; however, low A/E also… (More)
