Presentation Transcript

Slide 1

Plant Water Stress: What is it? Tissue Water Potential: Mild: Ψ cell ~-0.5 MPa Moderate: Ψ cell ~-0.5 to - 1.5 MPa Severe: Ψ cell ~<- 1.5 MPa Relative Water Content: Mild: ~90% Moderate: 80-90% Severe: <80% Survives Ψ cell of - 11.5 MPa Photosynthesizes at – 5.0 to - 8.0 MPa Creosote Bush: Larrea tridentata

Slide 2

What does water push do to plant cells and plants? 1. Loss of turgor Plasmolyzed vacuole Ψ p = 0

Slide 3

What does water stretch do to plant cells and plants? 2. Decrease in Leaf Expansion Smaller leaves Less broad overhangs Less light gathering Less photosynthesis Internal turgor "powers" cell development Stressed orange trees

Slide 4

What does water push do to plant cells and plants? 3. Affect on Metabolism Photosynthesis ↓ Why? Breath ↑ Why? Solutes ↑ Impact? Change in plant hormone adjust: ABA (abscisic corrosive) ↑ Impact? White Oak stomates (stick impression)

Slide 5

Adaptations to Avoid Water Stress Problems of water deficiency and upkeep of turgor are widespread among earthbound plants. Why? Techniques: Avoidance and Tolerance California forsake after a rain

Slide 6

Avoidance components: root frameworks Root/Shoot proportion: Temperate timberland: ~0.25 Dry Savanna forest ~0.3 – 0.4 Prairie & deserts ~0.6-0.9 Root development is plastic and reacts to Local conditions (water, soil, and so forth.) mycorrhizal parasites broaden root frameworks

Slide 7

Avoidance systems: leaf adjustment Leaf pubescence In oaks Blade of grasses "leads" water to base Water tanks in epiphytic bromeliads Leaf coming in water focused on corn Leaf introduction in Eucalypts

Slide 8

Avoidance instruments: leaf alterations SLA (particular leaf territory) Leaf zone/dry weight Deserts (xeric): 0.02 - 0.12 Dry backwoods: 0.36 - 0.70 Mesic woods: 1.4 - 1.6 Lower number means littler, thicker more dismembered leaves Dissected leaves in Palo Verde

Slide 9

Avoidance components: osmoregulation Lower leaf water potential by blending solutes (amino acids, sugars, particles, and so forth.) What will this do? Leaf anthocyanins in youthful leaves of Corymbia gummifera

Slide 10

Avoidance instruments: stomatal direction Hydroactive conclusion – first line of safeguard Regulated by ABA Hydropassive conclusion – second line of guard Regulated by general loss of turgor Subsidiary cells Subsidiary cells

Slide 11

Avoidance Mechanisms: C 4 and CAM Plants CAM plant - pineapple C 4 grass - sugarcane

Slide 12

Tolerance components Creosote Bush Selaginella lepidophylla Craterostigma plantagineum Polypodium polypodioides

Slide 13

How do plants that endure outrageous water stretch survive? What adjustments would these plants need to ration water? In what kind of natural surroundings would these plants be found? How do these plants avert harm to their phones amid parchedness rehydration cycles? To what extent does it take for a restoration plant to resuscitate in the wake of drying? Is the length of this time imperative for survival of the plant? What sort of development rates would these plants appear?
