Root traits are related to plant water-use among rangeland Mediterranean species

Florian Fort, Florence Volaire, Lydie Guilioni, Karim Barkaoui, Marie-Laure Navas, Catherine Roumet

In the context of a global increase in the frequency and intensity of droughts under climate change, root traits need to be explored to better understand their influence on water-use strategies of plants and communities. 283 more words

Survival, Water & Farming

I took this picture earlier this evening, on the top of chalk downs near Devizes in Wiltshire. What happened to April showers? The spring-sown crops are struggling.   104 more words


How do temperate trees maintain or restore water transport function in overwintering stems?

Cun-Yang Niu, Frederick C. Meinzer & Guang-You Hao

Keeping the integrity of water transport via the water-conducting xylem vessels is crucial for trees. But a great challenge to temperate trees is to maintain hydraulic function in overwintering organs, due to freeze-thaw cycles that they normally experience. 354 more words

Log moisture and moss growth under thinned and unthinned forest canopies

Sean R. Haughian and Katherine A. Frego

Water availability is important for mosses, because they do not have roots; they simply absorb liquid water (directly through their leaves) from rainfall, dew, and surface flow. 329 more words
