Variation in relative growth rate of 20 Aegilops species (Poaceae) in the field: the importance of net assimilation rate or specific leaf area depends on the time scale



Variation in relative growth rate of 20 Aegilops species (Poaceae) in the field: the importance of net assimilation rate or specific leaf area depends on the time scale



Plant and Soil 272(1/2): 11-27



Field experiments reporting the relative growth rate (RGR) patterns in plants are scarce. In this study, 22 herbaceous species (20 Aegilops species, Amblyopyrum muticum and Triticum aestivum) were grown under field conditions to assess their RGR, and to find out if the differences in RGR amongst species were explained by morphological or physiological traits. Plants were cultivated during two months, and five harvests (every 13-19 days) were carried out.
