Abstract• Alterations in plant chemistry underpin a suite of physiological adaptations to arid conditions. Qualitative and quantitative differences in leaf chemistry are found in the genus Eucalyptus correlating with physiological adaptation to aridity.• Here we investigate seasonal water relations of three field grown eucalypt species grown at a common site known to differ in their ability to accumulate the cyclic sugar alcohol, quercitol.• We show that quercitol contributes significantly to… CONTINUE READING
