“As water potential is regarded the best indicator of plant water status, because it is the integrated result of above- and below-ground environmental conditions, it holds promise as a pivotal model variable to which other plant processes respond.”
Could the exogenous application of melatonin help to improve tolerance to drought stress in crop plants?
More independence in trait adaptation may mean a greater leeway to adapt to changing climate.
When drought passes the signals to restart the development of rhizomes in Festuca arundinacea are on different regulatory pathways to the signals that turned it off at the start of the drought.
