Morphological plasticity in mangrove trees: salinity-related changes in the allometry of Avicennia germinans

Abstract

Morphological plasticity helps plants to cope to environmental conditions. Allometric responses of the mangrove Avicennia germinans to increasing salinity are easily detectable when focusing on the top height trees. Several studies show that mangrove trees possess high species- and site-related trait allometry, suggesting large morphological plasticity that… (More)
