Intraspecific phenotypic variability of plant functional traits in contrasting mountain grassland habitats Wellstein, C; Chelli, S; Campetella, G; Bartha, S; Galiè, M; Spada, F; Canullo, R (Springer Verlag (Germany), 2013)Empirical studies that link plants intraspecific variation to environmental conditions are almost lacking, despite their relevance in understanding mechanisms of plant adaptation, in predicting the outcome of environmental ...
Functional traits variation in snowbed plants along a snow cover gradient as a prediction of adaptation to climate warming Tonin, R; Gerdol, R; Tomaselli, M; Carbognani, M; Petraglia, A; Wellstein, C (EVS, 2016)Snowbed habitats, i.e. topographical depressions or slopes covered by snow for most of the year and colonized by species adapted to short growing season, can be considered as model systems for research addressing the effects ...
A comparison of the functional traits of Common reed (Phragmites australis) in Northern China: Aquatic vs. terrestrial ecotypes Han, W; Thevs, N; Jia, X; Ji, C; Jin, D; He, P; Schmitt, AO; Cirella, GT; Zerbe, S (Public Library of Science, 2014)Common reed (Phragmites australis (Cav.)
