- ... Trees tend to stabilize mid-day sap velocity through apparently coordinated active canopy conductance (Gc) responses to atmospheric evaporative demand. We recently reported a model describing this stabilization based on the linear relationship between canopy resistance (Rc) and vapor pressure deficit (VPD). The model was able to accurately reproduce the daily and seasonal courses of sap flow in ne ...
