Phenotypic plasticity and growth temperature: understanding interspecific variability

Atkin, Owen Kenneth; Loveys, Beth; Atkinson, Lindsey J; Pons, T L


The subject of this review is the impact of long-term changes in temperature on plant growth and its underlying components. The discussion highlights the extent to which thermal acclimation of metabolism is intrinsically linked to the plasticity of a range of biochemical and morphological traits. The fact that there is often a trade-off between temperature-mediated changes in net assimilation rates (NAR) and biomass allocation [in particular the specific leaf area (SLA)] when plants are grown...[Show more]
