Efeito do Sombreamento sobre o Teor de Clorofila e Crescimento Inicial do Jequitibá-rosa
Com o objetivo de avaliar os efeitos de periodos de sombreamento sobre o crescimento inicial e concentracoes de clorofila em mudas de jequitiba- rosa ( Cariniana legalis ), foi instalado umExpand
The world‐wide ‘fast–slow’ plant economics spectrum: a traits manifesto
A single ‘fast–slow’ plant economics spectrum that integrates across leaves, stems and roots is a key feature of the plant universe and helps to explain individual ecological strategies, community assembly processes and the functioning of ecosystems. Expand
Light and Vegetative Growth in the Grasses Deschampsia flexuosa (L.) Trin. and Festuca ovina L.
The relative growth rate (RGR) of both Deschampsia flexuosa (L.) Trin. and Festuca ovina L. increased with photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) across the range 4-32 mol m-2 day-1. The responsesExpand
Differences in Characteristics of Photosynthesis and Nitrogen Utilization in Leaves of the Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) According to Leaf Position
Robinia pseudoacacia L. has been widely planted worldwide for a variety of purposes, but it is a nonindigenous species currently invading the central part of Japanese river terraces. To understandExpand
We studied the development of 13 tree species growing in the undergrowth of hornbeam forests in the Kanev Reserve in Cherkasy Oblast (Ukraine) and spruce-broadleaved and pine forests in the BryanskExpand
Rocks and leaves: Can anatomical leaf traits reflect environmental heterogeneity in inselberg vegetation?
The results show that most of the speciesgrowing in MM showed more conservative traits related to water retention and drought resistance, whereas species growing in SD showed more diversified resource strategies, which reinforce the heterogeneous aspect of inselberg vegetation in Brazil, which is under variable degree of environmental stress.

Seed longevity and dormancy state in an invasive tree species: Ailanthus altissima (Simaroubaceae)1
Long-term seed dormancy potentially facilitates Ailanthus invasion by buffering against extended canopy closure or allowing passive dispersal with movement of soil, suggesting persistence in the soil well beyond the 2-yr length of this study. Expand
Insights on the persistence of pines (Pinus species) in the Late Cretaceous and their increasing dominance in the Anthropocene
Traits that evolved in response to angiosperm‐mediated fires and stressful environments in the Cretaceous and that continue to contribute to pine persistence and dominance are discussed and the numerous ways in which human activities favor pines are discussed. Expand
Dying piece by piece: carbohydrate dynamics in aspen (Populus tremuloides) seedlings under severe carbon stress
Carbon starvation causes gradual tissue die-back in seedlings of Populus tremuloides, beginning long before carbohydrate reserves are depleted. When tissues die, starch is depleted, but substantialExpand
The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, New Haven
All species showed a degree of adaptation to shade conditions, but leaves of the shade tolerant species had slightly less steep slopes than the intolerant species, so that considered over a range of varying low light intensities, the net photosynthesis would probably be similar in both groups.

Comparative Experiments as a Key to the Ecology of Flowering Plants
The rationale behind two methods of explaining the present distribution of flowering plants is examined and pronounced susceptibilities arise as an indirect consequence of adaptations. Expand
Seedling Establishment in Vertical Gradients of Sunlight
Although the amount of solar energy intercepted by a community of herbaceous species may be comparable with that intercepted by forest (Monsi & Saeki 1953), the height of the shaded stratum willExpand
Limitations to Photosynthesis Responsible for Differences Among Species1
The response to low light intensities by species that vary widely in P~a~ was examined and this response as well as some of the factors affecting COo~ absorption were examined. Expand
The Regeneration of Fraxinus Excelsior in Woods with a Field Layer of Mercurialis Perennis
Fraxinus excelsior ranges almost throughout lowland Britain, occupying soils with a surface pH greater than about 4'2. In woodland communities it is accompanied by Mercurialis perennis, except onExpand
The Experimental Control of Plant Growth
As one of the part of book categories, experimental control of plant growth always becomes the most wanted book. Expand
