Phytogeographic origin determines Tropical Montane Cloud Forest hydraulic trait composition

Fernanda De Vasconcellos Barros, Fernanda Barros, Paulo Bittencourt, Cleiton Eller, Caroline Signori-Müller, Leonardo Meireles & Rafael Oliveira
Tropical montane cloud forests (TMCF) have unique climatic conditions, which allow the coexistence of plant lineages with different phytogeographic origins from tropical versus temperate climates. Future climate projections suggest TMCFs will be subjected to increasing drought stress due to fog uplift and higher temperatures, possibly leading to tree mortality and local extinctions, and consequently changes in forest composition and functioning. Characterising community functional composition, trade-offs among traits and the drivers of community assembly is of...
