New Phytol 1985 Sep;101(1):25-77

Department of Biological Sciences, University of Dundee, Dundee DD1 4HN, UK.

The benefits which this paper addresses are those of maintaining the intracellular acid-base balance during growth, and of generating osmolarity related to regulation of turgor in environments of low water potential. These benefits may incur costs in terms of the quantity of potentially growth-limiting resources (photons, water, nitrogen) which are needed to produce unit quantity of 'baseline' plant biomass. The direction (excess H or excess OH ) and magnitude of acid-base perturbation during growth depends on the nature of the N-source (NH , N or NO ), so that the costing of pH homoiostasis involves consideration of the costs of overall N-assimilation for comparison with the other costs of growth of a terrestrial C plant.

Seasonal variations in water flux compositions controlled by leaf development: isotopic insights at the canopy-atmosphere interface.

Int J Biometeorol 2021 Apr 13. Epub 2021 Apr 13.

State Key Laboratory of Earth Surface Processes and Resource Ecology, Faculty of Geographical Science, Beijing Normal University, Beijing, 100875, China.

Water-stable isotopes provide a valuable tool for tracing plant-water interactions, particularly evapotranspiration (ET) partitioning and leaf water dynamics at the plant-atmosphere interface. However, process-based investigations of plant/leaf development and the associated isotopic dynamics of water fluxes involving isotope enrichment at plant-atmosphere interfaces at the ecosystem scale remain challenging. In this study, in situ isotopic measurements and tracer-aided models were used to study the dynamic interactions between vegetation growth and the isotopic dynamics of water fluxes (ET, soil evaporation, and transpiration) involving isotope enrichment in canopy leaves in a multispecies grassland ecosystem.

Different ABA-deficient mutants show unique morphological and hydraulic responses to high air humidity.

Physiol Plant 2021 Apr 7. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Lancaster Environment Centre, Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK.

High relative humidity (RH) perturbs plant growth, stomatal functioning and ABA homeostasis, but the role of ABA in this physiological regulation is equivocal. To determine the role(s) of ABA in plant responses to high RH, wild-type (WT) tomato and barley plants and their respective ABA-deficient mutants flacca and Az34 (which are mutated in the same locus of the ABA biosynthesis pathway) were grown in contrasting RHs (60 and 90%) to measure biomass partitioning, stomatal traits and water relations. Surprisingly, growth RH did not affect foliar ABA levels in either species. Read More
