Abstract

Xylem structure and water movement was studied in three different Lonicera species with different habits. The twining species, Lonicera japonica had the widest and the narrowest xylem. Lonicera maackii, a tree species, had the greatest annual increases in xylem, but the lowest proportion of conducting xylem. The scrambling species, Lonicera sempervirens, had a low maximum xylem diameter, high ratio of xylem area to leaf area and low conductivity.
