Plant functional traits have globally consistent effects on competition

Nature

Georges KunstlerMark Westoby

Abstract

Phenotypic traits and their associated trade-offs have been shown to have globally consistent effects on individual plant physiological functions, but how these effects scale up to influence competition, a key driver of community assembly in terrestrial vegetation, has remained unclear....read more
