Crown carbon gain and elevated responses of understorey saplings with differing allometry and architecture



Crown carbon gain and elevated responses of understorey saplings with differing allometry and architecture



Functional Ecology 15(2): 263-273



Attempts at determining the physiological basis of species' differences, such as the ability to grow in deep shade, have been of limited success. However, this basis is fundamental to predicting species' responses to rising atmospheric CO2 in the forest understorey.
