Taxonomic classification based on morphology alone can prove difficult. This is the case of the polymorphic forest tree species Santiria trimera in Africa, whose classification has remained controversial for over a century. Studies combining chloroplast and nuclear DNA sequences show the existence...

Tree species in tropical dry forests employ a wide range of strategies to cope with seasonal drought, including regulation of hydraulic function. However, it is uncertain if co-occurring lianas also possess a diversity of strategies. For a taxonomically diverse group of 14 tree and 7 liana species,...

AbstractFull Text

Endodormancy is a key determinant of cold and freezing hardiness in plant cycles. Short plant growth periods and increasing frequencies of frosting caused by increasing temperatures are major environmental challenges faced by trees in arid areas of central Mongolia. In the present study, the...
