Regression lines for the models are given in Fig.2. Wood Science 4:114-128. 2007. 2008. High intra-specific variability in P50 has been reported for other conifer species too; Domec et al. The parameter set is described in detail in Table 2. Moreover, in some species, wood density is mainly driven by the density of tissues outside the vessels rather than by the vessel lumen fraction (Ziemińska et al., 2013). 2010., Affiliation : In Ponderosa pine, P50 ranged from -1.5 to -0.7 MPa in roots, from -4.1 to -3.2 MPa in the main trunk and from -4.7 to -4.5 MPa in branches. 5b) were investigated. In simplest term, it is the volume of a box - 1 ft long, 1 ft wide, and 1 ft high or thick. Light green dots represent young trees (Austria), green dots young trunkwood (Norway) and dark green dots mature trunkwood (Sweden). 0!����#�„����i�_#��z9U�ӆe&�߇`t\Ps��QÛ�p�ʁ����ոL N&�%@N�3�Qa�`Z-T�KY� ��8'*c������Pj�@�ds������f��n�#�{��qG�J�K��=����6A�i`�0H[, �7��Y�%��_�F�r��[�J頴~��pJ�������`�aՌ�%��$��@RB��ʅ�(�uK'*[A�'-�v\8�"3ڒab�z�i�h�����X��J�ks)L���B�a.f&5T��1��pnއ2@�`���V���,OT'���~U�=-�MQ=4ɥ��g!ؚ�� ��]�b1+�0&��0���CC0�c�� ���8�н�#�9Σ&Y�`�\~+R�?��g�bL�Vˠ� �Œ`�{���UFgp��b��S����!�������: Traits, properties, and performance: how woody plants combine hydraulic and mechanical functions in a cell, tissue, or whole plant.

Angiosperm wood can have – even within a narrow density range - variable amounts of fibre wall-, fiber lumen- and parenchyma fractions (Ziemińska et al., 2015).

The relationship between dry wood density and volume shrinkage of Norway spruce sapwood is presented in Fig. (2017). Specific Gravity, Moisture Content, and Density Relationship for Wood. Wood specimens were soaked in distilled water under partial vacuum at 4°C for at least 48 h to refill embolized tracheids. The high hydraulic safety demand in the sapwood of small young trees might be explained by the shallow root system of seedlings that implies less access to ground water (Rosner, 2013). Dalla-Salda et al., 2014; Martinez-Meier et al., 2015; Wilkinson et al., 2015). Free calculators and unit converters for general and everyday use. Basic wood density was defined as the mass (weight) in the oven dry state divided by the volume in the fully saturated green state [kg m-³]. Accordingly, in Douglas fir seedlings (2nd internode from top) P50 can be much lower (–5.6 MPa) than at the base of the trunk of old trees (-3.3 MPa) of the same species (Domec and Gartner, 2002a). Age- and position-related changes in hydraulic versus mechanical dysfunction of xylem: inferring the design criteria for Douglas-fir wood structure.

Information on the origin of the plant material, age of trees and sampling location within the trees can be found in Table 1.

How much is 1 cft or ft3? Conversion formulas have been developed for lumber (mainly mature trunkwood) in order to calculate e.g. Wood density was calculated from mass in the oven dry state related either to volume at the oven-dry state (dry wood density) or to volume at full saturation (basic wood density). Rep. FPL-GTR-76. Hydraulic and biomechanical optimization in Norway spruce trunkwood: A review. PLoS ONE 10(4): e0124892. Specific gravity is often mixed up with density. Gravimetrically wood density measurements at different moisture contents (starting at full saturation) are easily to achieve on standard size specimens and the conversion curves obtained will be of high value for future ecological studies on other species and across species. For all trees, dry wood density was assessed (n = 134). Figure 2: Relationship between wood density traits and vulnerability to cavitation. P50 (air pressure that results in 50 % conductivity loss) was assessed by the air injection method.

Sections with a thickness of 20 µm were stained with methylene blue; colors were inverted in the digitized images.
