Trait convergence in photosynthetic nutrient-use efficiency along a 2-million year dune chronosequence in a global biodiversity hotspot

Pereira, Caio Guilherme; Hayes, Patrick E.; O’Sullivan, Odhran; Weerasinghe, Lasantha; Clode, Peta L.; Atkin, Owen; Lambers, Hans


The Jurien Bay dune chronosequence in south-western Australia's biodiversity hotspot comprises sites differing in nutrient availability, with phosphorus (P) availability declining strongly with increasing soil age. We have explored the exceptionally high photosynthetic Pause efficiency (PPUE) of Proteaceae in this region, triggering the question what the PPUE of co-occurring species in other families might be along the Jurien Bay chronosequence. We explored how traits associated with PPUE,...[Show more]
