Trade-offs in above and belowground biomass allocation influencing seedling growth in a tropical forest

Maria Natalia Umaña, Min Cao, Luxiang Lin, Nathan Swenson & Caicai Zhang
1. Plants allocate biomass to different organs in response to resource variation for maximizing performance, yet we lack a framework that adequately integrates plant responses to the simultaneous variation in above and belowground resources. Although traditionally, the optimal partition theory (OPT) has explained patterns of biomass allocation in response to a single limiting resource, it is well known that in natural communities multiple resources limit growth. We study trade-offs involved in plant biomass allocation patterns...
