Aim: Comparative responses of Nothofagus species to water deficits were studied to determine whether rainfall regimes could limit the latitudinal ranges of tropical and temperate forest species. Location: The study species are native to New Guinea, New Caledonia, Australia, New Zealand, Chile and Argentina. Methods: Seedlings of Nothofagus species from a broad latitudinal range were grown in a common environment. Changes in conductance, relative water content and water potential were measured...[Show more]
