Patterns of biomass allocation between foliage and woody structure : the effects of tree size and specific functional traits
(Marin Dracea National Research-Development Institute in Forestry, 2016-02)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Biomass allocation is closely related to species traits, resources availability and competitive abilities, and therefore it is often used to capture resource utilisation within plants. In this study, we ...
Aboveground biomass and carbon in a South African mistbelt forest and the relationships with tree species diversity and forest structures
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Biomass and carbon stocks are key information criteria to understand the role of forests in regulating global climate. However, for a bio-rich continent like Africa, ground-based measurements for accurate ...
Tree species diversity promotes aboveground carbon storage through functional diversity and functional dominance
(Wiley Open Access, 2016)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function has increasingly been debated as the cornerstone of the processes behind ecosystem services delivery. Experimental and natural field-based ...
