Trait-based community assembly of aquatic macrophytes along a water depth gradient in a freshwater lake
Trait-based approaches provide a framework for integrating the distribution of functional traits associated with ecological strategies into the responses of plant community dynamics alongExpand

A functional-trait approach reveals community diversity and assembly processes responses to flood disturbance in a subtropical wetland
Despite the strong effects of disturbance on plant community diversity and assembly, we do not fully understand how different aspects of taxonomic or functional diversity respond to disturbance orExpand

Functional traits composition predict macrophytes community productivity along a water depth gradient in a freshwater lake
Functional trait composition of plant communities has been proposed as a helpful key for understanding the mechanisms of biodiversity effects on ecosystem functioning. In this study, we applied aExpand

An alternative mechanism for shade adaptation: implication of allometric responses of three submersed macrophytes to water depth
Allometric scaling models describing size-dependent biological relationships are important for understanding the adaptive responses of plants to environmental variation. In this study, allometricExpand

Trait-based community assembly of submersed macrophytes subjected to nutrient enrichment in freshwater lakes: Do traits at the individual level matter?
Abstract Understanding how functional traits distributed across ecological scales as well as environmental gradients are central issues of trait-based assembly processes. However, whetherExpand

Predicting Changes in Macrophyte Community Structure from Functional Traits in a Freshwater Lake: A Test of Maximum Entropy Model
Trait-based approaches have been widely applied to investigate how community dynamics respond to environmental gradients. In this study, we applied a series of maximum entropy (maxent) modelsExpand

Linking carbon and nitrogen metabolism to depth distribution of submersed macrophytes using high ammonium dosing tests and a lake survey
Strategies of carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) utilisation are among the factors determining plant distribution. It has been argued that submersed macrophytes adapted to lower light environments are moreExpand

Nitrogen/carbon metabolism in response to NH4+ pulse for two submersed macrophytes
Abstract Occasional and sharp increase in NH 4 + availability due to massive input of sewage and agricultural runoff is not uncommon in inland aquatic systems; and its aftermath effects on the systemExpand

Growth and C/N metabolism of three submersed macrophytes in response to water depths
For submersed macrophytes, carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) metabolism is a central factor affecting growth and survival under low light availability. Three common submersed macrophytes, VallisneriaExpand

Environmental and Ontogenetic Effects on Intraspecific Trait Variation of a Macrophyte Species across Five Ecological Scales
Although functional trait variability is increasingly used in community ecology, the scale- and size-dependent aspects of trait variation are usually disregarded. Here we quantified the spatialExpand
