Functional relationships between leaf hydraulics and leaf economics in response to nutrient addition in subtropical tree species
(Oxford Univ Press, 2013-11)
Leaves can be both a hydraulic bottleneck and a safety valve against hydraulic catastrophic dysfunctions, and thus changes in traits related to water movement in leaves and associated costs may be critical for the success ...
Leaf life spans of some conifers of the temperate forests of South America
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2001)
Estimation of leaf area in pecan cultivars (Carya illinoinensis)
(Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Facultad de Agronomía e Ingeniería Forestal, 2009)
Activity of sesame leaf extracts to the leaf-cutting ant Atta sexdens rubropilosa (Hymenoptera : Formicidae)
(California State University, 2004-01-01)
Crude extracts of new and old sesame leaves (Sesamum indicum, Linaeus) obtained by a sequential process of extraction were tested through contact experiments to investigate their toxicity to Atta sexdens rubropilosa (Forel) ...
Shifting from acquisitive to conservative: the effects of Phoradendron affine (Santalaceae) infection in leaf morpho-physiological traits of a Neotropical tree species
(Csiro Publishing, 2017-01-01)
Mistletoes are parasitic plants that penetrate the host branches through a modified root and connect to their xylem to acquire nutrients and water. Under mistletoe infection, resources that would otherwise be used by the ...
TAXONOMIC USE OF LEAF ANATOMICAL CHARACTERS IN THE GENUS SIMAROUBA-AUBLET (SIMAROUBACEAE)
(Gustav Fischer VerlagJenaAlemanha, 1993)
Effect of source/sink ratio on leaf and fruit traits of blueberry fruiting canes in the field
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2018)
Oviposition of a leaf-miner on Erythroxylum tortuosum (Erythroxylaceae) leaves: hierarchical variation of physical leaf traits
(CSIRO Publishing, 2012-01-01)
Plants do not offer homogeneous supplies of the resources required by herbivorous insects as many resource traits show considerable variation both within and between plants. The distribution of variation among host-plant ...
Photosynthetic responses of understory savanna plants: Implications for plant persistence in savannas under tree encroachment
Savannas are ecosystems where plants are expected to have leaf-level adaptations conferring tolerance to high irradiances, which characterizes this type of open canopy vegetation. The neotropical savannas of Brazil (Cerrado) ...
Differences in leaf thermoregulation and water use strategies between three co-occurring Atlantic forest tree species
Given anticipated climate changes, it is crucial to understand controls on leaf temperatures including variation between species in diverse ecosystems. In the first study of leaf energy balance in tropical montane forests, ...
