" The Dynamic Multi-Functionality of Leaf Water Transport Outside the Xylem "

26th Annual Biology Research Symposium

In Memory of Professor Donald G. Buth

Understanding plant’s physiological responses to drought is more critical than ever under our changing climate. While most studies have focused on severe and prolonged drought and their impact on plant mortality in natural systems, an equally important aspect to consider is that of mild drought in limiting growth, particularly in crop systems. Here, I will present some recent insights and experiments from my lab highlighting the dynamic hydraulic responses to mild drought at the leaf level, and how these can scale up to influencing plant growth.
