An energy budget method is described for using potometers to measure the minimum diffusion resistance to transpiration of excised leaves. The method is used to infer the transpiration rate of intact leaves in situ. Values of minimum resistance are given for several coniferous and deciduous trees and shrubs from wet to dry habitats.
