This dataset contains the raw stomatal resistance readings used in the 2021 water journal paper; Estimating Evapotranspiration from Commonly Occurring Urban Plant Species Using Porometry and Canopy Stomatal Conductance (Askari et al.).
Stomatal resistance is measured from the leaves of plants using a handheld porometer device. Stomatal resistance provides information about the rate of water vapour transfer out of a leaves stomata (pores). In the referenced paper, stomatal resistance readings are used to infer rates of evapotranspiration from garden plants.
The data describes stomatal resistance measured from three different plant types, (Sedum Spectabile, Bergenia Cordifolia and Primula Vulgaris) taken from nine different hourly measurement periods over the course of three days.
Leaf area index of each plants leaf type is also included in the data; this is needed to calculate evapotranspiration - the use of it is explained in the referenced paper.
