Growth, photosynthesis, and needle structure of silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) seedlings under different canopies
Abstract As part of fir reintroduction program in the Karkonosze Mountains (S. Poland) a study was undertaken to investigate growth and ecophysiological performance of young firs (Abies alba) underExpand

Phenotypic correlates of the lianescent growth form: a review
Background As proposed by Darwin, climbers have been assumed to allocate a smaller fraction of biomass to support organs in comparison with self-supporting plants. They have also been hypothesized toExpand

Acclimation of leaves to contrasting irradiance in juvenile trees differing in shade tolerance.
Leaves developing in different irradiances undergo structural and functional acclimation, although the extent of trait plasticity is species specific. We tested the hypothesis that irradiance-inducedExpand

Contribution of C3 carboxylation to the circadian rhythm of carbon dioxide uptake in a Crassulacean acid metabolism plant Kalanchoë daigremontiana.
During the endogenous circadian rhythm of carbon dioxide uptake in continuous light by a Crassula cean acid metabolism plant, Kalanchoë daigremontiana, the two carboxylating enzymes,Expand

Tertiary remnants and Holocene colonizers: Genetic structure and phylogeography of Scots pine reveal higher genetic diversity in young boreal than in relict Mediterranean populations and a dual
Aim Scots pine is one of the dominant tree species in forest ecosystems of the temperate and boreal zones in Eurasia. Since the Tertiary, it has persisted also in the Mediterranean region, formingExpand

Responses of leaf structure and photosynthetic properties to intra-canopy light gradients: a common garden test with four broadleaf deciduous angiosperm and seven evergreen conifer tree species
Spectra of leaf traits in northern temperate forest canopies reflect major differences in leaf longevity between evergreen conifers and deciduous broadleaf angiosperms, as well as plasticExpand

Perturbations of malate accumulation and the endogenous rhythms of gas exchange in the Crassulacean acid metabolism plant Kalanchoë daigremontiana: testing the tonoplast-as-oscillator model
In continuous light, leaves of the Crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) plant Kalanchoë daigremontiana Hamet et Perrier exhibit a circadian rhythm of CO2 uptake, stomatal conductance and leaf-internalExpand

Leaf age as a factor in anatomical and physiological acclimative responses of Taxus baccata L. needles to contrasting irradiance environments
To evaluate the acclimative ability of current-year and previous-year needles of a shade tolerant conifer Taxus baccata L. to contrasting irradiance conditions, seedlings were raised under 27% solarExpand
