Altitudinal differentiation in growth and phenology among populations of temperate-zone tree species growing in a common garden

  title={Altitudinal differentiation in growth and phenology among populations of temperate-zone tree species growing in a common garden},
  author={Yann Vitasse and Sylvain Delzon and Caroline C. Bresson},
The aim of the study was to determine whether there are genetic variations in growth and leaf phenology (flushing and senescence) among populations of six woody species (Abies alba Mill., Acer pseudoplatanus L., Fagus sylvatica L., Fraxinus excelsior L., Ilex aquifolium L., and Quercus petraea (Matt.) Liebl.) along altitudinal gradients, using a common-garden experiment. We found (i) significant differences in phenology and growth among provenances for most species and (ii) evidence that these… CONTINUE READING
