Leaf and Life History Traits Predict Plant Growth in a Green Roof Ecosystem

Abstract

Green roof ecosystems are constructed to provide services such as stormwater retention and urban temperature reductions. Green roofs with shallow growing media represent stressful conditions for plant survival, thus plants that survive and grow are important for maximizing economic and ecological benefits. While field trials are essential for selecting… (More)
