Sclerophyllous grasses are hydrostable water savers, except Koeleria glauca, which can maintain stable water balance in spite of intensive transpiration. Perennial dicotyledons belong to the hydrolabile water spender type, while thin leaves of Carex liparicarpos suffer from relatively high water deficits even at moderate transpiration. -from Author
