Carbohydrates play an important role in the structure and metabolism of plants such as construction of xylem and embolism repair during the growing season. The availability of carbohydrates depends directly on the phenology of each species which is strongly influenced by climate change. Within the context of carbohydrate supply and by using a highly original approach to integrate seasonal phenology, carbon balance, xylem growth, sap flow and cavitation repair, my aims are to assess how the availability of carbohydrates is affected by seasonal events and the significance of this for hydraulic conductance (xylem function) and primary production in temperate trees.
