We tested whether a trade-off exists between tolerance to flooding and tolerance to drought in wetland plants by assessing biomass accumulation, relative growth rate (RGR), survival rate, and physiological response of three wetland plants growing in drought or flooded environments. In wetlands of China’s Sanjiang Plain, Carex lasiocarpa typically occurs at low elevations (10–50 cm water depths), Carex limosa at medial elevation (10–30 cm depths), and Deyeuxia angustifolia at high elevation (0… CONTINUE READING
