Such structures are regarded as functional analogues to hydathodes, which typically occur in angiosperms (Ziegenspeck, 1948) and may maintain a sufficient water flow (and nutrient supply) by guttating water, which, in turn, facilitates a constant xylem stream when transpiration is reduced (Ziegler, 1982).
