Stomatal Water Relations and the Control of Hydraulic Supply and Demand
Stomata have fascinated plant biologists for well over 100 years. It is difficult to think of another plant system that responds to so many factors or displays such complexity at so many levels. Indeed, when one considers the number of feedback loops involving stomatal conductance and all of the potential interactions among these feedbacks, it is really quite remarkable that stomata work at all.
