Our investigations permitted a determination of the dependence of gas resistance of woody plants on the intensity and direction of the physiological and biochemical processes in their leaves. The study of various forms of resistance has led the investigators to the conclusion that, on one hand, the latter is determined by a group of characteristic anatomo-physiological and biochemical features of the plants interacting with specific environmental factors, and, on the other hand, by the degree of resistance and lability of metabolism under unfavorable environmental conditions. 17 refs., 1 tab.
