In order to clarify the relationship of leaf characteristics and growth of Catalpa bungei and provide a theoretical basis for clone selection in Catalpa bungei, the growth and leaf morphology characteristics of 61 Catalpa bungei clones were studied. The results showed that significant variances were found in leaf length, width, width/length, leaf stalk length, specific leaf mass, Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) and height among 61 clones. Leaf length, width and leaf stalk length were positively… Expand

Variation analysis on chlorophyll fluorescence and growth traits of Catalpa bungei clones
TLDR
Remarkable difference in characteristics of biomass and chlorophyll fluorescence can provide basis for future research in C.bungei. Expand
Productivity, leaf traits and carbon isotope discrimination in 29 Populus deltoides x P. nigra clones.
TLDR
There is a potential to improve water-use efficiency in poplar without necessarily reducing the overall productivity, and carbon isotope discrimination in the leaves was negatively correlated with number of leaves increment rate and leaf N content. Expand
Comparative investigation of the growth and physiology characteristics for different Catalpa spp.saplings
TLDR
The results showed that different Catalpa spp.had significant variance in height, diameter, length to width of leaf, leaf numbers per plant and net photosynthesis rate, and photochemistry quenching had significant positive correlation with non-photochemistry quench(NPQ) and significant negative correlation with ΦPSⅡphotochemical efficiency.

Petiole length and biomass investment in support modify light interception efficiency in dense poplar plantations.
TLDR
The authors' results demonstrate important clonal differences in leaf aggregation that are linked to leaf structure and biomass allocation patterns within the leaf, and suggest that there is a trade-off between photosynthetic plasticity and biomass investment in support, and also that high light-harvesting efficiency may be associated with lower photosynthesis plasticity.

Developmental contributions to phenotypic variation in functional leaf traits within quaking aspen clones.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that ontogenetically derived phenotypic variation leads to fitness differentials among different-aged ramets, which may have important implications for clone fitness. Expand
Leaf-level productivity traits in Populus grown in short rotation coppice for biomass energy
TLDR
To physiologically characterize genotypes of hybrid poplar, informing future selection, breeding and the development of process-based yield models, leaf level photosynthetic characteristics were less able to differentiate between the most productive and less productive genotypes than morphological traits.

ADVANCES IN ECOLOGICAL STUDIES ON LEAF LIFESPAN AND ASSOCIATED LEAF TRAITS
It is well known that plants with long leaf lifespans are found to grow mostly in habitats where nutrient availability is low and/or water is limited, while plants with short leaf lifespans usuallyExpand

TLDR
Because of its clearer ecological interpretation and its applicability across different floras, SLA appears to be the best candidate for inclusion in large comparative databases. Expand

TLDR
The possibility of using specific leaf weight to predict seasonal and annual net photosynthetic rate in deciduous and evergreen conifers and a combined structural index could, when calibrated, predict the total annual carbon uptake by different parts of the crown. Expand
