Association of leaf silicon content with chronic wind exposure across and within herbaceous plant species

Yao-Bin Song, Yu-Kun Hu, Xu Pan, Guo-Fang Liu, Ming Dong & Johannes H. C. Cornelissen
Aim: High foliar silicon (henceforth Si) concentration protects plant tissues against herbivory but protection against several abiotic stressors has been proposed too, though the adaptive significance of these functions is still being debated. We aimed to explore the potential relationships between foliar Si content and chronic wind exposure across a large scale and multiple species, and analyze an overlooked alternative or complementary function of silicon in leaves: mechanical protection against wind. Location: Mainland China. Time...
