Plant Physiology students from Cal State University, Los Angeles have been in our Puma Canyon Reserve taking leaf samples of yuccas and Joshua trees as part of a study under the direction of Christine Scoffoni, Assistant Professor of Plant Biology.
“Different microclimates can have a significant impact on the physiology of succulents that inhabit arid environments such as the Mojave Desert (California, USA). We investigated plasticity in physiology, morphology and anatomy of two dominant Mojave Desert monocots, Yucca brevifolia (Joshua tree) and Hesperoyucca whipplei growing along a soil water availability gradient.”
