    Department of Biology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah 84112, USA
    Nature 421:939-42. 2003
    ..Our measurements of plant xylem indicate that these conduits conform to the Murray's law optimum as long as they do not function additionally as supports for the plant body...

    Katherine A McCulloh
    Department of Biology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84112, USA
    Tree Physiol 25:257-67. 2005
    ..In general, the observed architectural patterns are consistent with the maximization of transport efficiency operating within mechanical constraints...

    New Phytol 201:217-29. 2014
    ..65. Architectural diversity appears to matter considerably for whole-tree hydraulics, mechanics, photosynthesis and potentially metabolic scaling. Optimal architectures likely exist that maximize carbon gain per structural investment...
