- Aquaporin gene expression and apoplastic water flow in bur oak (Quercus macrocarpa) leaves in relation to the light response of leaf hydraulic conductance. Voicu, Mihaela C.; Cooke, Janice E. K.; Zwiazek, Janusz J. // Journal of Experimental Botany;Oct2009, Vol. 60 Issue 14, p4063
It has previously been shown that hydraulic conductance in bur oak leaves (Quercus macrocarpa Michx.), measured with the high pressure flow meter technique (HPFM), can significantly increase within 30 min following exposure to high irradiance. The present study investigated whether this increase...

- Light response of hydraulic conductance in bur oak (Quercus macrocarpa) leaves. Voicu, Mihaela C.; Zwiazek, Janusz J.; Tyree, Melvin T. // Tree Physiology;Jun2008, Vol. 28 Issue 7, p1007
A four- to seven-fold enhancement of leaf hydraulic conductance by light has been reported in three temperate tree species. The enhancement occurs in the liquid-flow pathway between the petiole and the site of water evaporation. The enhancement occurs within 1 h, and dissipates in darkness over...
