Data from: Leaf hydraulic parameters are more plastic in species that experience a wider range of leaf water potentials

Daniel M. Johnson, Z. Carter Berry, Kathyrn V. Baker, Duncan D. Smith, Katherine A. McCulloh, Jean-Christophe Domec & Kathryn V. Baker
1. Many plant species experience large differences in soil moisture availability within a season, potentially leading to a wide range of leaf water potentials (ΨLEAF). In order to decrease the risk of leaf dehydration, among species, there is a continuum ranging from strict control (isohydry) to little control (anisohydry) of minimum ΨLEAF. 2. In central Texas USA, species are exposed to a range of soil moisture from wet springs to hot, dry summers. There are...

Data from: Nutrient remobilization in tree foliage as affected by soil nutrients and leaf life span

David Ludovick Achat, Noémie Pousse, Manuel Nicolas & Laurent Augusto
Nutrient remobilization is a key process in nutrient conservation in plants and in nutrient cycling in ecosystems. To predict the productivity of terrestrial ecosystems, we thus need to improve our understanding of the factors that control remobilization. We studied the remobilization rates of several major nutrients (N, P, S, K, Ca, and Mg) in 102 forest ecosystems representing large environmental gradients at country scale (France). Total amounts or availability of nutrients in soils were correlated...
