Figure 6.

As the value of the membrane hydraulic conductivity (Lp) increased (resistance to water flow across the membrane decreased) stomatal sensitivity to increased D declined. Values for Lp are 0.5, 1.0 and 2 times the default value for the curves, reading left to right. Changes in membrane hydraulic conductance influence the maximum value of E and alter stomatal sensitivity to D. The dashed lines are lines of constant D.
