Floral and leaf gas exchange and stem hydraulic conductance data observed from 2017 to 2018 on woody plants growing in Minnesota



These data were collected for a project examining floral water loss and floral hydration in woody plants that flower before they produce leaves. Gas exchange and stem hydraulic conductance were measured on at least six individuals of five woody species. These data were used to compare floral and leaf water loss and to evaluate whether floral water loss was limited by stem hydraulic conductance.

There are three CSV files and one readme file.
