Abstract Drought strongly influences plant productivity, suggesting that water limitation has shaped the evolution of many plant physiological traits. One functional strategy that plants employ to cope with decreasing water availability is drought escape. For drought-escaping species, high metabolic activity (gas exchange) and rapid growth are hypothesized to confer a fitness advantage, because this enables a plant to complete its life cycle before the most intense period of drought. By growing… Expand
