Foliar plasticity in response to ontogeny, location within the plant and environmental changes is widespread among long-lived organisms. To quantify the phenotypic variation in needle morphology and anatomy in response to a climate gradient, we compared contrasted populations of Pinus canariensis grown in five sites inside and outside the natural distribution area of the species. Most needle and growth traits were strongly affected by site. In general, site xericity increased the relative area… CONTINUE READING
