Adaptive variation in physiological traits underpinning stem elongation responses among nodally-rooting stoloniferous herbs

Abstract

For nodally-rooting stoloniferous herbs a close physiological link exists between the growth of nodal roots and development of shoot tissues of phytomers distal to them. Furthermore, in Trifolium, presence of nodal roots at phytomers proximal to the youngest nodal root on a stem influences the allocation of carbon along the stem when that stem encounters a… (More)
