Several experiments were conducted with tropical tree and liana seedlings in which transpiration ratio and leaf phosphorus to carbon ratio (P:C) were measured. Transpiration ratio was expressed as kg H2O transpiredg-1 C incorporated into plant biomass, and leaf P:C as mg Pg-1 C. Leaf P:C was positively correlated with transpiration ratio across 19 species for plants grown under similar conditions (R2=0.35, P<0.01, n=19). For five species in the dataset, multiple treatments were imposed to cause...[Show more]
