Aims The relationship between stem and leaf growth is a strategy that plant canopy enhances photosynthetic efficiency and competitiveness through configuration adjustments; this relationship indicates the ratio between xylem and photosynthetic area in a heterogeneous environment. Our objective was to examine how Melica przewalskyi modulated leaf and stem traits in adaptation to changes in slope. Methods In the alpine grassland of Qilian Mountains, Gansu Province, China, 80 plots were set up… Expand
