    Root hydraulics of drought-tolerant and susceptible rice varieties

    Drought-tolerant and drought-susceptible rice (Oryza sativa) varieties have previously been shown to exhibit different trends in root hydraulic traits. Henry et al. carry out an investigation to measure root xylem sap bleeding rates and root hydraulic conductivity in order to understand how environmental factors affect the physiological features of these groupings. The study shows that […] More
