Leaf water repellency (LWR) is the degree to which water droplets repel from a leaf surface. LWR has been suggested as an adaptation to maximize gas exchange during photosynthesis and as a mechanism to increase hydrological inputs beneath the canopy. This article examined the relationships between LWR and leaf traits in 33 species across three distinct biogeographical regions (tropical montane cloud forests in Guatemala; tropical dry forests in Guatemala; and foothills-grassland vegetation in… CONTINUE READING
