2009 journal article

Acclimation of leaf hydraulic conductance and stomatal conductance of Pinus taeda (loblolly pine) to long-term growth in elevated CO2 (free-air CO2 enrichment) and N-fertilization

PLANT CELL AND ENVIRONMENT, 32(11), 1500–1512.

author keywords: capacitance; embolism; reference conductances; reference leaf water potential; time constant; turgor loss point
MeSH headings : Acclimatization; Carbon Dioxide / metabolism; Dehydration; Droughts; Fertilizers; Nitrogen / metabolism; Pinus taeda / growth & development; Pinus taeda / physiology; Plant Leaves / physiology; Plant Stomata / physiology; Plant Transpiration / physiology
TL;DR: Because leaves represented a substantial component of the whole-tree conductance, reduction in K(leaf) under CO(2)(e) affected whole- tree water use by inducing a decline in g(s-ref), which was manifested only during times of high soil moisture. (via Semantic Scholar)

By: D. Grans n, B. Hannrup*, F. Isik n, S. Lundqvist & S. McKeand n

author keywords: Juvenile wood; solid wood products; X-ray diffraction
TL;DR: Genetic variation in wood density, microfibril angle (MFA), wood stiffness (MOE), height, diameter and volume was investigated in a 26-year-old Norway spruce clonal trial in southern Sweden and suggested that early selection for wood quality traits would be successful. (via Semantic Scholar)
