Habitat-specific responses of leaf traits to soil water conditions in species from a novel alpine swamp meadow community

Li, Honglin; Nicotra, Adrienne; Xu, Danghui; Du, Guozhen

Description

Species originally from alpine wetland and alpine meadow communities now coexist in a novel ‘alpine swamp meadow’ community as a consequence of wetland drying in the eastern Tibetan Plateau. Considering the projected increase in the fluctuation of water supply from precipitation during the growing season in this area in the future, it is important to investigate the responses of the species that make up this new community to soil water availability. Using a transplant experimental design, we...[Show more]
