Light field heterogeneity among tussock grasses: Theoretical considerations of light harvesting and seedling establishment in tussocks and uniform tiller distributions


Although the tussock growth form of caespitose graminoids is widespread, the effect of this growth form on light interception and carbon gain of tillers has received little attention. Daily incident photosynthetic photon flux density (PFDinc) and carbon gain in monospecific stands of tussock grasses were compared with those of a hypothetical distribution… (More)
