Hedysarum laeve, a rhizomatous clonal half-shrub, commonly dominates in inland dunes in semiarid areas of northern China. This species propagates vegetatively by the extension of horizontal rhizomes resulting in programmed reiteration of apical and/or axillary meristems. In this study, 14C labeling and experimental defoliation were employed to test the photosynthate translocation within the interconnected parent–daughter ramet pairs. A proportion of 14C-photosynthates was transported from the… CONTINUE READING
