A commentary on « Intraspecific variation in root and leaf traits and leaf-root trait linkages in eight aspen demes (Populus tremula and P. tremuloides » by Hajek, P., Hertel, D., and Leushner C. (2013) Front. Plant Sci. doi: 10.3389/fpls.2013.00415
Welcome to my website
I explore the relationship between leaf and root functional traits syndromes and their consequences on the plants ability to face interaction with other plants and abiotic stress mainly water and phosphorus.
I’m particularly interested in the functioning of the grassland and crops communities and on how fertility and climate change impact communities performances in interaction with their functional structure.
