Stomata provide higher plants with a primary means to adjust to their conÂ tinuously changing environment (10). Like the membrane of a cell, stomata function at the organismal level to preserve biological integrity while at the same time allowing active physical exchange between the aerial parts of the plant and its habitat. Since the most conspicuous role of stomata is the regulation of water vapor loss and CO2 uptake, the study of stomatal function has centered around transpiration and photosynthesis.

Homeostasis is a fundamenÂ tal biological property of living organisms, which need to regulate their interÂ nal milieu while interacting with their environment ( 1 3). Adaptive homeoÂ static ranges are significantly broader in plants than in animals (8 1
