Nighttime transpiration in woody plants from contrasting ecosystems

Abstract:

It is commonly assumed that transpiration does not occur at night because leaf stomata are closed in the dark. We tested this assumption across a diversity of ecosystems and woody plant species by various methods to explore the circumstances when this assumption is false. Our primary goals were: (1) to evaluate the nature and magnitude of nighttime transpirations, En, or stomatal conductance, gn; and (2) to seek potential generalizations about where and when it occurs. Sap-flow, porometry and...
