Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/320604
Description: Plant traits vary widely across species and underpin differences in ecological strategy. Despite centuries of interest, the contributions of different evolutionary lineages to modern-day functional di ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/337490
Description: Early flowering plants are thought to have been woody species restricted to warm habitats. This lineage has since radiated into almost every climate, with manifold growth forms. As angiosperms spread ... 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

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/355090
Description: Scaling relations among plant traits are both cause and consequence of processes at organ-to-ecosystem scales. The relationship between leaf nitrogen and phosphorus is of particular interest, as both ... More

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
