of the stomatal aperture ( Fig. 5 ). From a practical point of view, two questions arise: Are microcracks in the CM of developing fruit of european plum important? And, if so, what can be done to avoid microcracking? Microcracks impair the barrier

stomatal aperture is the most dramatic and readily measurable whole plant response to salinity ( Munns and Tester, 2008 ). Lloyd and Howie (1991) found that in the morning, lower values of g S on orange trees treated with 20 mol·m −3 NaCl (although

, pecan does not adjust stomatal aperture in response to intermittent cloud cover, thus behaving like a non-solar-tracking species ( Andersen, 1991 ), and this may result in higher transpiration rates and reduced WUE. This study reiterated the earlier

and indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) are hormones that mediate signaling events involved in plant adaptation to stress and senescence. IAA is the primary auxin in the majority of plant species. ABA plays a regulatory role in controlling stomatal aperture

-stored seedlings might be attributed to the higher SD and SI of leaves under light, which led to favorable stomatal aperture and thus increased the amount of CO 2 in the interior of cells to avoid the decrease of photosynthesis by stomatal limitation during

evidence that would suggest that at least some changes in plant water deficits occur as a result of cold temperatures and not dry soil. Stomatal aperture and leaf water potential are typically reduced even on days of very low evaporative demand and after
