Limitations to reproductive success in the dioecious tree Rhamnus davurica
The reproductive success of a female plant in a dioecious species may be affected by pollen limitation and resource limitation. This study presents evidence that the reproductive success of the dioecious understorey tree ...
Drivers of seedling survival in a temperate forest and their relative importance at three stages of succession
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2015-09-10)
Negative density dependence (NDD) and niche partitioning have been perceived as important mechanisms for the maintenance of species diversity. However, little is known about their relative contributions to seedling survival. ...
Effects of density dependence in a temperate forest in northeastern China
(Springer Nature, 2016-09-08)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Negative density dependence may cause reduced clustering among individuals of the same species, and evidence is accumulating that conspecific density-dependent self-thinning is an important mechanism ...
Stoichiometry patterns in the androdioecious Acer tegmentosum
(Springer Nature, 2016-10-11)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study evaluates stoichiometry patterns in the androdioecious Acer tegmentosum, a species characterized by a rare reproductive system where males and hermaphrodites coexist. Altogether 31 hermaphrodites ...
Soil elements influencing community structure in an old-growth forest in Northeastern China
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study uses detailed soil and vegetation data collected in a 30-ha old-growth broad-leaved Korean pine forest to study the effect of soil properties on tree community structures. Spatial distribution ...
