Do temperate rainforest trees have a greater ability to acclimate to changing temperatures than tropical rainforest trees?



Do temperate rainforest trees have a greater ability to acclimate to changing temperatures than tropical rainforest trees?



New Phytologist 157(1): 55-64



Photosynthetic responses to acclimation temperature were investigated in seedlings of eight Australian rain forest tree species, namely Eucryphia lucida, Nothofagus cunninghamii, Tristaniopsis laurina, Acmena smithii var. smithii, Sloanea woollsii, Heritiera trifoliolata, Castanospermum australe and Alstonia scholaris. Australian rain forests extend over 33 degrees of latitude, providing an opportunity to compare temperature responses of temperate and tropical species.
