About This Project

California’s two redwood species presently stand as Earth’s tallest, largest, most carbon-sequestering, and nigh oldest trees; their family’s fossils occur nearly globally. To better understand California redwoods' physiology and taxonomy, we study their stomata—pores—over canopy height. Are variations in their leaf stomata adaptive for vertical growth? Can species in the family be defined by them?
