Biomass allocation to roots, rhizomes, runners and climbing stems (i.e. twining axis and attached leaves) was studied inCalystegia sepium L., a clonal vine. In an experiment which took 2 months, nutrient availability (low and high) and intraspecific competition (none, shoot root and both shoot and root) were manipulated. Under low nutrients the highest biomass of climbing stems was found in plants with shoot competition; the lowest was found in plants with both shoot and root competition. Total… CONTINUE READING
