Hydraulic limits on tree performance: Transpiration, carbon gain and growth of trees

An overview of the relationship between plant gas exchange, the potential hydraulic gradient, the size of the plant and its hydraulic conductance is presented. Key references are used to exemplify arguments of whole-plant optimality and to explain the origin and development of the dominant paradigm for interpreting the nature of water use and growth in plants.
