Ph.D. student researching moment when droughts kill trees

Tue, Aug 13, 2019

William Hammond, a Ph.D. candidate in Oklahoma State University's Department of Plant Biology, Ecology and Evolution has spent the past few years researching the moment when trees stop living and start dying under extreme drought. He is conducting the study under the advisement of Dr. Henry Adams, a professor in the department. They conducted a study where they imposed a drought upon loblolly pine trees in a greenhouse and observed them through different levels of drought-stress. The team realized the trees starts dying long before foliage turns brown. In a lot of cases, they were still green or yellow.
