1. Improving our knowledge on plant functions underlying shifts in species ranges along altitudinal and latitudinal gradients is a research priority to understand biotic responses to climate change. Although much is known about biological responses to elevation, coupled observations of ecophysiological and reproductive traits with whole-plant performance metrics are rare, and thus our understanding disjunct rather than holistic. 2. We expected growth and reproductive performance to decrease… CONTINUE READING
