Title: Xylem recovery from drought-induced embolism: Where is the hydraulic point of no return?
Author: Meinzer, Frederick C.; McCulloh, Katherine A.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: The hydraulic resilience of a species is determined by multiple physiological and structural traits. Understanding how these traits are integrated at the organismal level to yield adequate hydraulic fitness in a given environment would be a fertile area for future research. This type of information is essential for realistic predictions of species hydraulic limits under current and future climate change scenarios.
Keywords: drought, tree hydraulic architecture
