An electrical analogue model has been developed based on main leaf hydraulics characteristics and intrinsic geometry. The simulations show good qualitative agreements with specialized literature reports. The constant-phase behavior and the variation with ambient temperature of the frequency response of the leaf impedance are assessed by means of simulation studies.
