    Re: how vines cope with water stress.

    Plants have very specific requirements for water. Some can take a great deal of water [willows, mangroves], others need little water [cactus]. A plant that is not getting the correct amount is suffering water stress. In the case of the vines, it refers to the way in which they either adapt for reduced water or for over-watering.
