Structural and hydraulic correlates of heterophylly in Ginkgo biloba

Leigh, Andrea; Zwieniecki, Maciej; Rockwell, F.E.; Boyce, C Kevin; Nicotra, Adrienne; Holbrook, Noel Michele


This study investigates the functional significance of heterophylly in Ginkgo biloba, where leaves borne on short shoots are ontogenetically distinct from those on long shoots. Short shoots are compact, with minimal internodal elongation; their leaves are supplied with water through mature branches. Long shoots extend the canopy and have significant internodal elongation; their expanding leaves receive water from a shoot that is itself maturing. Morphology, stomatal traits, hydraulic...[Show more]
