Landscape-scale analysis of nutritional traits of New Zealand tree foliage using near-infrared spectroscopy

Windley, Hannah; Foley, William

Description

Near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy (NIRS) was used to predict the nutritional quality of tree foliage from a New Zealand forest inhabited by the introduced common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) as part of a study to understand the relationship between possum browsing and the nutritional quality of foliage. The traits of interest were the foliar concentrations of total nitrogen, in vitro dry matter digestibility, and available nitrogen (with and without incubation with polyethylene...[Show more]
