The relationships between the water status of plant organs and their physiological functions are empirical. Measurements of the thermodynamic status of water in the tissues of laticiferous plants are difficult because the laticifers have positive hydraulic pressure and exude fluids when cut. We set out to determine whether reduced soil water supply affected leaf water status, measured by a number of methods, and changed primary productivity. To do this we took pressure, volume and morphological… CONTINUE READING
