BACKGROUND AND AIMS The major objective was to identify plant traits functionally important for optimization of shoot growth and nitrogen (N) economy under drought. Although increased leaf N content (area basis) has been observed in dry environments and theory predicts increased leaf N to be an acclimation to drought, experimental evidence for the(More)
In order to efficiently grow Salix for biomass production in warmer climates, varieties with a desirable response to drought and nutrient-limiting conditions are needed. The main objective of this study was to investigate the genetic background of biomass production and nitrogen (N) economy in contrasting conditions of water and nutrient availability and to(More)
