Reproduction-related variation in carbon allocation to woody tissues in Fagus crenata using a natural 13C approach.

Abstract

The contribution of new photo-assimilates and stored carbon (C) to plant growth remains poorly understood, especially during reproduction. In order to elucidate how mast seeding affects C allocation to both reproductive and vegetative tissues, we measured biomass increase in each tissue, branch starch concentration and stable C isotope composition (δ13C) in… (More)
