The Hofler diagram and the pressurevolume curve

Hofler Diagram

Water relations parameters of plant tissues can be presented by the Hofler diagram and the pressure-volume curve PV curve . The Hofler diagram shows the relationship between water potential and relative water content Fig. 2.2a . The PV curve is a plot between the reciprocal of water potential -1 and RWC or water loss 1 - RWC during desiccation Fig. 2.2b . Both the Hofler diagram and the PV curve are widely used to characterize water relations of plant tissues. To construct a Hofler diagram or a...
