The ecology of arctic and alpine Plants



The ecology of arctic and alpine Plants



Biol. Rev 43(4): 481-529. Bibl. 173



In this review the environmental and vegetational characteristics of tundra are described and the adaptations of Plants to arctic and alpine environments discussed in terms of life forms and general morphology, seed dormancy and germination, seedling establishment, chlorophyll, photosynthesis, respiration, water-availability and use, and annual growth cycles.
