Biomass partitioning and leaf area of Pinus radiata trees subjected to silvopastoral and conventional forestry in the VI region, Chile
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2003)
Leaf ecology of pre-reproductive ontogenetic stages of the palm tree Euterpe edulis Mart. (Arecaceae)
(Academic Press LtdLondonInglaterra, 1999)
Leaf traits as indicators of resource-use strategy in floras with succulent species
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2002-11)
Associations between specific leaf area (SLA), leaf water content (LWC) and leaf thickness (LT) in 77 species were analysed to identify which of these traits gave a better indicator value of general plant resource-use ...
Expanding our understanding of leaf functional syndromes in savanna systems: the role of plant growth form
The assessment of leaf strategies has been a common theme in ecology, especially where multiple sources of environmental constraints (fire, seasonal drought, nutrient-poor soils) impose a strong selection pressure towards ...
Within-stand and seasonal variations of specific leaf area in a clonal Eucalyptus plantation in the Republic of Congo
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2010)
Specific leaf area (SLA; m(leaf)(2) kg(leaf)(-1)) is a key ecophysiological parameter influencing leaf physiology, photosynthesis, and whole plant carbon gain. Both individual tree-based models and other forest process-based ...
Leaf trait variation on Erythroxylum tortuosum (Erythroxylaceae) and its relationship with oviposition preference and stress by a host-specific leaf miner
It has been suggested that plant physical and chemical traits vary considerably in space and time. Hence, leaf-mining insects may adjust their oviposition in response to leaf attributes representing high quality. Moreover, ...
Leaf Morphological Plasticity of Tree Species from Two Developmental Stages in Araucaria Forest
(Instituto de Tecnologia do Paraná - Tecpar, 2014)
Reproductive phenology differs between evergreen and deciduous species in a Northeast Brazilian savanna
(Soc Botanica Brasil, 2018-07-01)
Evergreen (EG) and deciduous (DEC) species exhibit distinct strategies to overcome dry periods and achieve adequate water status for reproduction and growth. Such particularities may result in distinct reproductive strategies ...
A simple and non-destructive model for individual leaf area estimation in citrus
(Cambridge University Press, 2010-09-01)
Introduction. Leaf area is often related to plant growth, development, physiology and yield. Many non-destructive models have been proposed for leaf area estimation of several plant genotypes, demonstrating that leaf length, ...
