Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/228745
Description: Approximately 1-2% of net primary production by land plants is re-emitted to the atmosphere as isoprene and monoterpenes. These emissions play major roles in atmospheric chemistry and air pollution-cl ... 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/1959.14/142397
Description: Paleobotanists have long used models based on leaf size and shape to reconstruct paleoclimate. However, most models incorporate a single variable or use traits that are not physiologically or function ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/118417
Description: 1.  A prevalent question in the study of plant invasions has been whether or not invasions can be explained on the basis of traits. Despite many attempts, a synthetic view of multi-trait differences b ... More
