How do woody species differ in hydraulic architecture?
Hydraulic architecture refers to form characteristics of plants that characterize the water relationships. The Huber value, named after a German researcher active in the 20/30-ties of the 20th century, is the ratio between the sap ...

The wonderful architecture of leaf veins and their role for plant hydraulics
Leaf veins provide not only structure to the leaves, but they are also the irrigation channels through which all water transport occurs. Plant species show an amazing variety in leaf vein architecture, which is not only esthetical ...
