    Measuring and Imaging the Soil-root-water System with a Light Transmission 2D Technique
    Authors:  Claude Doussan and Emmanuelle Garrigues, date: 03/20/2019, view: 3154, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Improving crops against water deficits requires a better understanding of plant root system functioning. This requires a better knowledge of the water uptake process and to address the influence of root system architecture or root physiological properties on the uptake efficiency. To this end, we describe here a non-destructive system that enables ...
    Pneumatic Method to Measure Plant Xylem Embolism
    Authors:  Paulo R. L. Bittencourt, Luciano Pereira and Rafael S. Oliveira, date: 10/20/2018, view: 3026, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Embolism, the formation of air bubbles in the plant water transport system, has a major impact on plant water relations. Embolism formation in the water transport system of plants disrupts plant water transport capacity, impairing plant functioning and triggering plant mortality. Measuring embolism with traditional hydraulic methods is both ...
