Tulip tree response to drought

As the summer goes on with much less rain than normal, the tulip trees lose many of their leaves.  This tulip tree on the Purdue campus has lost most of its leaves, which lie dead and brown scattered on the ground under the tree.  The leaves that are left on the tree are new leaves at the ends of the twigs.
