Variation in xylem structure and function has been extensively studied across different species with a wide taxonomic, geographical and ecological coverage. In contrast, our understanding of how xylem of a single species can adjust to different growing conditions remains limited. In this thesis,...
Evaluation of centrifugal methods for measuring xylem cavitation in conifers, diffuse and ringporous angiospermsDownload
• A centrifugal method is used to measure ‘vulnerability curves’ which show the loss of hydraulic conductivity in xylem by cavitation. Until recently, conductivity was measured between bouts of centrifugation using a gravity-induced head. Now, conductivity can be measured during centrifugation....
