Relative contribution of meristem activities and specific leaf area to shoot relative growth rate in C3 grass species



Relative contribution of meristem activities and specific leaf area to shoot relative growth rate in C3 grass species



Functional Ecology 19(6): 925-931



Although plant growth depends on a balance between source and sink abilities, few studies have examined how sink activities influence plant shoot growth. This study is an examination of how meristem (sink) activities influence interspecific differences in shoot relative growth rate (RGR) among 16 C3 grass species. The RGR and specific leaf area (SLA) were measured on plants grown under controlled environments in each species.
