Intrinsic water use efficiency (IWUE) was obtained as the ratio of photosynthetic assimilation rate (Pn) to stomatal conductance for water vapor (gs).
Analyses of variance for relative water content RWC (%), photosynthetic assimilation rate (Pn) (umol CO2 m-2 s-1), transpiration E (m mol H2O m-2 s-1), stomatal conductance gs (mol H2O m-2 s-1), intrinsic water use efficiency WUEi (umol CO2 mol H2O-1), total Chlorophyll (Chl) content (mg g-1 FW) and dry root-shoot ratio in henna plant (L inermis) (n=4).
