Specific conductivity (k s, m2s–1MPa–1) describes the permeability of xylem and is determined by all aspects of xylem anatomy that create resistance to the flow of water. Here we test the hypothesis that k s is a function of radial and vertical position within the stem, rather than solely a function of cambial age (ring number from the pith), by measuring k s on samples excised from 35-year-old Douglas-fir [Pseudotsuga menziesii var. menziesii (Mirb.) Franco] trees at six heights and two or… CONTINUE READING
