parameters for plant drought resistance.

Wed Mar 12 17:46:07 EST 1997

I am currently trying to design an experiment to study water relations
consequences of increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration.  But it is
difficult to determine what physiological parameter/s confers increased
drought resistance to plants?  I have read that the ultimate aim for
drought resistance is to prevent cavititation events but I do not fully
understand this concept?

Help would be appreciated
