Intracanopy plasticity under strong wind conditions in the wild olive tree (Olea europaea L.): a conserved response between closely related taxa?


Trees have the ability to respond to local environmental cues by expressing particular phenotypes across their canopy through a mechanism known as intracanopy plasticity. In this study, intracanopy plasticity of Olea europaea subsp. europaea was analyzed by sampling leeward and windward canopy exposures of individuals occurring in an area with sustained… (More)
