Fast and furious: Early differences in growth rate drive short-term plant dominance and exclusion under eutrophication

1. The reduction of plant diversity following eutrophication threatens many ecosystems worldwide. Yet, the mechanisms by which species are lost following nutrient enrichment are still not completely understood, nor are the details of when such mechanisms act during the growing season, which hampers understanding and the development of mitigation strategies. 2. Using a common garden competition experiment, we found that early-season differences in growth rates among five perennial grass species measured in monoculture predicted short-term...

Trait means predict performance under water limitation better than plasticity for seedlings of Poaceae species on the eastern Tibetan Plateau

Honglin Li, Xilai Li & Xiaolong Zhou
Water availability may be altered by changes in precipitation under global climate change in alpine areas. Trait means and plasticity are important for plants in response to a changing environment. In an examination of alpine plant responses to changed water availability, and for determination of how trait means and plasticity predict the performance (e.g., biomass) of these species, seeds of ten Poaceae species from the eastern Tibetan Plateau were sown and grown in a manipulated...

Geometric model for toppling-prone deformation of layered reverse-dip slope

Liangfu Xie, Ying Ge, Yongjun Qin & Jianhu Wang
This paper concentrates on analyzing toppling response of layered reverse-dip slope under the action of geometric feature factors of slope angle, strata thickness and strata dip, so as to establish toppling-prone geometric model for toppling deformation. To achieve this, a total of 144 kinds of combination schemes performed by numerical simulation are carried out on three secondary factors of slope angle and strata dip and thickness. The toppling response of reverse dip slope under the...
