Climate controls plant life form patterns on a high-elevation oceanic island

Severin D. H. Irl, Alexander Obermeier, Carl Beierkuhnlein & Manuel J. Steinbauer
Aim: Plant life forms characterize key morphological strategies that enable large-scale comparisons of plant communities. This study applies Raunkiær’s plant life form concept that was developed for temperate climate to a subtropical island flora, in parts, dominated by summer aridity. We quantify how plant life form patterns as well as patterns of important plant functional traits (PFTs) relate to important climate and topographic characteristics. Location: La Palma, Canary Islands Taxon: Flora of La Palma. Methods:...
