uptake from the leaves. It has been established that the relative water content of leaves controls the stomatal movement of CAM plants at night ( Nobel, 1977 ), and that the stomata of CAM plants tend to close under water stress, thus reducing CO 2

and fall months where the trees at CS displayed significantly lower water use ( Table 5 ). Because of reduced water use in CS relative to SA, we suggest that the use of high sodium bicarbonate water may have affected plant water uptake. High soil

differences in the modes of nutrient uptake in CRF- and LF-treated plants. Xylem exudates were analyzed after stem decapitation to assess nutrient uptake by the plant. The volume of xylem exudates per unit of time can be used to measure the activity of water

, lasting only a few hours after ABA treatment. It is possible that ABA temporarily increases water uptake through its impact on aquaporins and then limits it by causing morphological changes to the roots (i.e., suberization) as a means of protecting the

Rain cracking of sweet cherry fruit is an important limitation in crop production worldwide and is thought to be related to water uptake through the fruit surface. This uptake occurs by diffusion through the cuticle and by viscous flow along an

soilless substrate may improve the PUE of container-grown crops because P is retained in the root zone. In contrast to soils, pine bark substrates have no appreciable source of labile P to resupply pore-water with OP during root uptake. However, the effects
