Calcium as an antitranspirant

, : Calcium as an antitranspirant. Plant Physiol, 42: Suppl, 17

Introduction of calcium chloride into the transpiration stream of Rhododendron maximum resulted in a reduction of transpiration to less than half its original rate. The effect was more marked in 1- and 2-year-old leaves than in 3-, 4- and 5-year-old leaves.
