The experiment aimed to look at the comparison between the nighttime stomatal conductance of Malosma laurina and Encelia californica. Through the use of leaf porometry and subsequent data analysis, it was determined that there was no statistical differnce between either species, due to the fact that the Malosma laurina was a resprouted species, that needed significantly less water than a fully mature M. laurina plant would have needed.
