Measuring stomatal conductance. Photo: Uwe Hacke

Aspen plants were drought-stressed in the greenhouse, and their stomatal conductance is measured. Drought-stressed plants closed their stomata to minimize water loss. Aspen is considered an isohydric species, meaning it controls its water potential to prevent the formation of xylem embolism.
