It seems of utmost importance to investigate the details of the regulation of carbon metabolism under water stress conditions. The effects of water stress on respiration have been less studied than those on photosynthesis. It is commonly considered that respiration is less sensitive to water stress than photosynthesis (Boyer, 1976). In Eucalyptus globulus there was a clear decrease in respiration rates measured at 20 0 e from winter and spring to summer when the plants were subjected to water stress (Fig.
