Acclimation to humidity modifies the link between leaf size and the density of veins and stomata; Plant, Cell and Environment
Cell expansion not cell differentiation predominantly co-ordinates veins and stomata within and among herbs and woody angiosperms grown under sun and shade; Annals of Botany
Differential leaf expansion can enable hydraulic acclimation to sun and shade; Plant, Cell and Environment
Ferns are less dependent on passive dilution by cell expansion to coordinate leaf vein and stomatal spacing than angiosperms; PLoS One
Linking auxin with photosynthetic rate via leaf venation; Plant Physiology
Mapping xylem failure in disparate organs of whole plants reveals extreme resistance in olive roots; New Phytologist
Similar geometric rules govern the distribution of veins and stomata in petals, sepals and leaves; New Phytologist
Vein density is independent of epidermal cell size in Arabidopsis mutants; Functional Plant Biology
Xylem and stomata, coordinated through time and space; Plant, Cell and Environment
