Photosynthetic Responses of Tropical Forest Plants to Contrasting Light Environments
Across the complex matrix of microsites that compose tropical forests, light availability varies more dramatically than any other single plant resource. On a sunny day, instantaneous measurements ofExpand
Pigment dynamics and autumn leaf senescence in a New England deciduous forest, eastern USA
TLDR
The leaves of woody plants at Harvard Forest in Central Massachusetts, USA, changed color during senescence; 70% (62/89) of the woody species examined anatomically contained anthocyanins during Senescence, indicating no long-term protective activity. Expand
The spectral distribution of radiation in two neotropical rainforests
The spectral quality of radiation in the understory of two neotropical rainforests, Barro Colorado Island in Panama and La Selva in Costa Rica, is profoundly affected by the density of the canopy.Expand
Irradiance and Spectral Quality Affect Asian Tropical Rain Forest Tree Seedling Development
TLDR
The patterns of morphological responses to reduced PPFD and R:FR help explain how the shade tolerances of the seedlings of rain forest trees vary in a continuous manner. Expand
CORRELATES OF LEAF OPTICAL PROPERTIES IN TROPICAL FOREST SUN AND EXTREME‐SHADE PLANTS
The purpose of the present study was to determine which leaf structures best correlate with previously published optical properties of 13 extreme-shade adapted understory species and 12Expand
Cascading ecological effects of low-level phosphorus enrichment in the Florida everglades.
TLDR
It is indicated that Everglades marshes have a near-zero assimilative capacity for P without a state change, that ecosystem responses to enrichment accumulate over time, and that downstream P transport mainly occurs through biota rather than the water column. Expand
LEAF OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF RAINFOREST SUN AND EXTREME SHADE PLANTS
TLDR
The optical properties of leaves from extreme shade and sun-adapted plants of tropical forests are compared to determine if shade- Adapted plants absorb more energy, and if differences in absorptance occur at specific wavelengths. Expand
Anthocyanins in Leaves: Distribution, Phylogeny and Development
TLDR
The distribution of anthocyanins in leaves, both in presence and in tissue distribution, is influenced by both phylogeny and development, and these influences will be important in resolving the ecological roles of Anthocyanin in leaves. Expand
Anthocyanins in Autumn Leaf Senescence
TLDR
These hypotheses make predictions that can be test, to help understand this old mystery - and majestic phenomenon - of anthocyanins. Expand
