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....
