Relationships between leaf life span, leaf mass per area, and leaf nitrogen cause different altitudinal changes in leaf delta 13C between deciduous and evergreen species



Relationships between leaf life span, leaf mass per area, and leaf nitrogen cause different altitudinal changes in leaf delta 13C between deciduous and evergreen species



Botany: 11, 1233-1241



We examined the variability in stable carbon isotope ratio ( delta <sup>13</sup>C) in leaves of two deciduous broad-leaved species and two evergreen conifer species along an altitudinal gradient in central Japan. The delta <sup>13</sup>C of the two deciduous species decreased with altitude, except near the upper distribution limit. The two evergreen species, however, showed no clear altitudinal trends for delta <sup>13</sup>C.
