Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/84947
Description: Here, we evaluated how increased shading and declining net photosynthetic capacity regulate the decline in net carbon balance with increasing leaf age for 10 Australian woodland species. We also asked ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/103389
Description: • Architecture can vary widely across species. Both steeper leaf angles and increased self-shading are thought to reduce potential carbon gain by decreasing total light interception. An alternative hy ... More
