Does anybody know how to translate from english to french the concept of
"feedforward" developped by researchers like IR. Cowan or G.D. Farquhar:

(e.g. COWAN I.R., FARQUHAR G.D. 1977. Stomatal function in relation to
leaf metabolism and environment. Sym. Soc. Exp. Bot. 31:471-505.

FRANKS P.J., COWAN I.R., FARQHUAR G.D. 1997. The apparent feedforward
response of stomata to air vapour pressure deficit : information
revealed by different experimental procedures with two rainforest trees.
Plant Cell Environ. 20:142-145).


This phenomena is observed when stomatal closure under increasing air
vapour pressure deficit is enough to make leaf transpiration decrease ?

Many Thanks
