    New Phytol 182:664-74. 2009
    ..Adjustments in membrane properties and extent of pitting per vessel apparently combine to influence cavitation resistance across species...

    Mairgareth A Christman
    Department of Land, Airand Water Resources, University of California, Davis, CA 95616, USA
    Physiol Plant 136:264-73. 2009
    ..The N treatment had no effect on g(night). Thus, higher E(night) did not provide a nutrient or growth benefit to Arabidopsis, even when the plants were N-limited...

    Mairgareth A Christman
    Department of Biology, University of Utah, 257 South 1400 East, Salt Lake City, UT 84112, USA
    Plant Cell Environ 33:431-43. 2010
    ..In summary, we found scalariform plates of diverse morphology essentially double lumen flow resistance, impeding xylem flow much more than previously estimated...

    Plant Cell Environ 31:1170-8. 2008
    ..Further characterization of genetic variation in g(night) within and among populations and species, and of associations with other traits and native habitats will be needed to understand g(night) as a putatively adaptive trait...

    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Santa Cruz, CA 95064, USA
    New Phytol 192:449-61. 2011
    ..We suspect that it is the arrangement of the primary xylem, in addition to the intrinsic traits of the conduits themselves, that may help explain the broad range of cavitation resistance in ferns...
