Abstract:
Leaf traits and chemicals from tree species in the Gutianshan Nature Reserve, including secondary compound (total phenolic and tannin concentrations) and information on stomata.
Design:
Leaf samples were taken from sun-exposed branches with an expandable pruner. Only completely developed leaves were sampled, without visible herbivore damage and preferably free of leaf fungi. Seven leaves were collected per individual and the majority of species was sampled in five to seven CSPs. Every species was sampled only from one individual per CSP. Rare species that occurred with less than five individuals in all CSPs had a correspondingly lower number of replicates.
Spatial extent:
Comparative Study Plots in the Gutianshan Nature Reserve 29°08'-29°17'N 118°02'-118°11'E
Temporal extent:
Sampling excursions between 2008 and 2009
Taxonomic extent:
Tree species in the CSPs
Measurement cirumstances:
No information available
Data analysis:
Mind that young and old leaves were sampled. For aggregated traits you may want to use old leaves only or aggregate first within both age classes and then average again.

Horizontal, but not vertical canopy structure is related to stand functional diversity in a subtropical slope forest (DOI: 10.1007/s11284-011-0887-3

Abstract:
In biodiversity research, niche complementarity is seen as one mechanism with which species coexistence is maintained. Niche complementarity also results in a more efficient use of the total resource pool, and thus, species-rich communities should...

Tree species traits but not diversity mitigate stem breakage in a subtropical forest following a rare and extreme ice storm

Abstract:
Future climates are likely to include extreme events, which in turn have great impacts on ecological systems. In this study, we investigated possible effects that could mitigate stem breakage caused by a rare and extreme ice storm in a Chinese sub...

Trade-offs between physical and chemical carbon-based leaf defence: Of Intraspecific variation and trait evolution

Abstract:
1. Despite recent advances in studies on trade-offs between plant defence traits, little is known whether trade-offs reflect i) evolutionary constraints at the species level or ii) allocation constraints at the individual level. Here, we asked to ...
