Drought resistance of plants in relation to hysteresis in sorption I Hydration and dehydration of the leaves of certain drought resistant and drought sensitive plants II Adaptability of the Ragi plant to varying conditions of soil drought



Drought resistance of plants in relation to hysteresis in sorption I Hydration and dehydration of the leaves of certain drought resistant and drought sensitive plants II Adaptability of the Ragi plant to varying conditions of soil drought



Proc Nation Inst Sci India: 41-49, 51-58, 7



The capillary structure of the leaf tissue plays an important role in determining the degree of drought resistance of plants as revealed by the study of balsam, paddy, ragi, wheat and oats. The leaves of these plants were subjected to successive hydration and dehydration in a quartz fiber spring balance. Hysteresis is exhibited in all the systems and the hysteresis loop disappeared after a certain number of hydrations and dehydrations.
