I recently listened to an interview with a guy who studied water flow in trees. Rephrasing from the OMG climate change version, plants are adapted to typical rainfall conditions where they live. Their water transport structure is no stronger than it needs to be. Reducing from wet to damp can cause drought stress in a wet-adapated species though a damp-adapted species does fine.

Which is not surprising.
