Variations in leaf economics spectrum traits for an evergreen coniferous species: Tree size dominates over environment factors

Zhili Liu, Kouki Hikosaka, Fengri Li & Guangze Jin
Many leaf traits strongly vary with tree size and environmental factors, but the importance of these factors to intraspecific variations of leaf traits in forest trees have rarely been simultaneously evaluated. We measured needle longevity and specific leaf area (SLA) and nitrogen (N) content of every needle age (0 to 4 year old) for 65 individuals with 0.3-100 cm diameter at breast height (DBH) for an evergreen coniferous species, Pinus koraiensis Sieb. et Zucc., in...
