Rainfall drives leaf traits and leaf nutrient resorption in a tropical dry forest in Mexico


Core leaf traits, such as leaf mass per area (LMA) and leaf nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) concentrations in green and senesced leaves, are currently used to discern patterns of variation, constraints, and relations to nutrient availability and climate among plant species up to the biomes and global scale. These traits and nutrient resorption were measured… (More)
