- ... Knowing the mechanisms and factors related with the control of the stomatal behaviour by plants is crucial for understanding the variation of transpiration with time or among plants under different conditions. The loss of hydraulic functioning in some parts of the plants has been reported to have an important influence in the plant stomatal closure and, therefore, in the plant transpiration. Both ...

- ... Drought is considered to be the main environmental factor limiting photosynthesis (AN) and, consequently, plant growth and yield worldwide. During photosynthesis, the pathway of CO2 from the atmosphere to the site of carboxylation in the chloroplast stroma has two main components: stomatal (gs) and mesophyll (gm) conductances. Both are finite and dynamic, responding to many abiotic factors, theref ...
