PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Coping with temperature extremes: morphological constraints on leaf function in a warmer, drier climate

We are combining field and laboratory studies to determine how hydraulic traits of evergreen leaves affect their tolerance of temperature extremes with change in atmospheric CO2 concentrations.
