TRY – a global database of plant traits
Plant traits – the morphological, anatomical, physiological, biochemical and phenological characteristics of plants and their organs – determine how primary producers respond to environmental… Expand

The availability of carbon from rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels and of nitrogen from various human-induced inputs to ecosystems is continuously increasing; however, these increases are not… Expand
The C:N:P stoichiometry of organisms and ecosystems in a changing world: A review and perspectives
This study examined the literature in ISI Web of Science to identify the effects that the main drivers of global change have on the nutrient concentrations and C:N:P stoichiometry of organisms and… Expand
The Application of ecological stoichiometry to plant-microbial-soil organic matter transformations
Elemental stoichiometry constitutes an inherent link between biogeochemistry and the structure and processes within food webs, and thus is at the core of ecosystem functioning. Stoichiometry allows… Expand
Changes in soil enzymes related to C and N cycle and in soil C and N content under prolonged warming and drought in a Mediterranean shrubland
Abstract In a Mediterranean shrubland, we investigated the effects of the projected warming and drought on soil urease, protease and β-glucosidase activities and the relation of the possible changes… Expand
Evidence of current impact of climate change on life: a walk from genes to the biosphere.
We review the evidence of how organisms and populations are currently responding to climate change through phenotypic plasticity, genotypic evolution, changes in distribution and, in some cases,… Expand
Plant-soil interactions in Mediterranean forest and shrublands: impacts of climatic change
BackgroundIn the Mediterranean climate, plants have evolved under conditions of low soil-water and nutrient availabilities and have acquired a series of adaptive traits that, in turn exert strong… Expand
The elemental stoichiometry of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems and its relationships with organismic lifestyle and ecosystem structure and function: a review and perspectives
C, N and P are three of the most important elements used to build living beings, and their uptake from the environment is consequently essential for all organisms. We have reviewed the available… Expand
Potassium: a neglected nutrient in global change.
Aim Potassium (K) is the second most abundant nutrient in plant photosynthetic tissues after nitrogen (N). Thousands of physiological and metabolic studies in recent decades have established the… Expand
