Trees, forests and water : resistance and resilience to water deficits

Editors: Erwin Dreyer, Hervé Cochard, Jean Marc Guehl, André Granier, INRAE and Maurizio Mencuccini, CREAF. 

This topical issue is dedicated to the memory of Gilbert Aussenac, former Chief Editor, who promoted research on water use and water relations in forests at INRAE in France, and of Pierre Cruiziat, who was a precursor for water relation studies in trees. They strongly influenced the development of this topic in France. Both researchers passed away in 2020.
