Zweifel R, Zimmermann L, Zeugin F, Newbery D. Intra-annual radial growth and water relations of trees: implications towards a growth mechanism. J Exp Bot. 2006;57:1445-59 pubmed
..A concept is discussed which links radial growth over a feedback loop to actual tree water-relations and long-term affected C-storage to microclimate. ..

. Morphological and physiological responses of Scots pine fine roots to water supply in a dry climatic region in Switzerland. Tree Physiol. 2009;29:541-50 pubmed publisher
..The lack of a marked response of the fine root biomass to irrigation in the low- and high-productivity trees suggests that fine roots have a high priority for within-tree carbon allocation. ..

..By contrast, high variability in the response of individual seedlings to summer drought indicates the potential of continental P. sylvestris provenances to adapt to changing environmental conditions. ..

..abies and Q. pubescens. The model worked well for P. abies at the wet site and for Q. pubescens and P. sylvestris at the dry site, and may be useful for estimating water deficit in other tree species. ..
