Notes: A Comparison of Twig Water Stress Between Males and Females of Six Species of Desert Shrubs
Abstract:Twig water stress was measured in six dioecious species of desert shrubs (Atriplex canescens, A. confertifolia, A. corrugata, A. cuneata, A. tridentata, and Ephedra viridis). Females had significantly greater water stress than males for all five Atriplex species when fruits were in late stages of development and soils were dry. Diurnal variations of A. canescerts in late summer showed that females had significantly greater twig water stress from noon until late evening. Forest Sci. 28:304-308.
