Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1200699
Description: A plant's growth rate is seen as a central element of its ecological strategy, and as determined by its traits. Yet the literature is inconsistent about the empirical correlation between functional tr ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/177762
Description: • Co-occurring species often differ in their leaf lifespan (LL) and it remains unclear how such variation is maintained in a competitive context. Here we test the hypothesis that leaves of long-LL spe ... More
