Physiological and production responses of plant growth forms to increases in limiting resources in alpine tundra: implications for differential community response to environmental change


Physiological and growth measurements were made on forbs and graminoids following additions of water and N+water in a graminoid-dominated dry meadow and a forb-dominated moist meadow, to determine if the community-level response was related to differential responses between the growth forms. Graminoids had higher photosynthetic rates and lower transpiration… (More)
