Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/275564
Description: Atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration (Cₐ) has a direct and measurable effect on plant growth. However, it does not affect all plant species equally, which could lead to shifts in competitive domin ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/275713
Description: Aim: At a global scale, the relationship of leaf longevity (LL) to mean annual temperature (MAT) is positive for deciduous species but negative for evergreen species. The aim of this paper is to under ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/177762
Description: • Co-occurring species often differ in their leaf lifespan (LL) and it remains unclear how such variation is maintained in a competitive context. Here we test the hypothesis that leaves of long-LL spe ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/123839
Description: A trade-off between growth and mortality rates characterizes tree species in closed canopy forests. This trade-off is maintained by inherent differences among species and spatial variation in light av ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/355098
Description: Non-photosynthetic, or heterotrophic, tissues in C₃ plants tend to be enriched in ¹³C compared with the leaves that supply them with photosynthate. This isotopic pattern has been observed for woody st ... More
