Water Potential: The Science Behind the Measurement (Part 2)
In the second part of this month’s water potential series (see part 1), we discuss the separate components of a water potential measurement. The total water potential is the sum of four components: matric potential, osmotic potential, gravitational potential, and pressure potential. This article gives a description of each component.
