Variation among plant species in pollutant removal from stormwater in biofiltration systems.
Biofiltration systems use vegetation to improve efficiency of pollutant removal from stormwater, but little is known of how plants vary in their capacity to improve biofilter effectiveness. We used aExpand

Plant biomechanics in an ecological context.
Fundamental plant traits such as support, anchorage, and protection against environmental stress depend substantially on biomechanical design. The costs, subsequent trade-offs, and effects on plantExpand

Reproductive traits of tropical rain-forest trees in New Caledonia
Reproductive traits of 123 species of rain-forest tree from ultramafic regions of New Caledonia were assessed, mainly from herbarium specimens. Most species had extremely small, simple, pale-colouredExpand

Characterizing sclerophylly: the mechanical properties of a diverse range of leaf types
Summary • Although sclerophylly is defined by textural properties, its adaptive significance has been debated without a strong base of mechanical data. We measured a wide range of mechanicalExpand

Responses of some Southern Hemisphere tree species to a prolonged dark period and their implications for high-latitude Cretaceous and Tertiary floras
Abstract Seedlings of some Southern Hemisphere tree species were grown under experimental conditions to investigate their tolerance of long periods of darkness. The taxa used have either a fossilExpand

Quantitative assessment of stand condition and its relationship to physiological stress in stands of Eucalyptus camaldulensis (Myrtaceae)
River regulation has led to a decline in the condition of Australia’s dominant riverine tree species, Eucalyptus camaldulensis Dehnh., in the Murray–Darling Basin. A quantitative method of assessingExpand
