    N M Holbrook
    Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    Plant Physiol 126:27-31. 2001
    ..These measurements demonstrate that MRI can be used to monitor the functional status of individual xylem vessels, providing the first method to study the process of cavitation and embolism repair in intact plants...
  2. pmc Why leaves turn red in autumn. The role of anthocyanins in senescing leaves of red-osier dogwood
    T S Feild
    Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    Plant Physiol 127:566-74. 2001
    ..We suggest that optical masking of chlorophyll by anthocyanins reduces risk of photo-oxidative damage to leaf cells as they senesce, which otherwise may lower the efficiency of nutrient retrieval from senescing autumn leaves...

    Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology Arnold Arboretum, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    Plant Cell Environ 34:565-79. 2011
    ..We conclude that the declines in conductance observed in the HPFM must involve a resistance downstream of the extracellular air space, and that in red oak the hydraulic conductivity of leaf tissue is insensitive to light...
