Titre : Desert shrubs cranked up water use efficiency to survive a megadrought

ScienceDaily (December 20, 2021)

Résumé
Shrubs in the desert Southwest have increased their water use efficiency at some of the highest rates ever observed to cope with a decades-long megadrought. Researchers found that although the shrubs’ efficiency increases are unprecedented and heroic, they may not be enough to adapt to the long-term drying trend in the West.
