- ... KEY MESSAGE: Increased shade tolerance and a lower thermal optimum for photosynthesis may give silver beech a photosynthetic advantage over mountain beech in cloudy regions of New Zealand, and possibly the understory. The geographic distributions of silver beech (Lophozonia menziesii) and mountain beech (Fuscospora cliffortioides) in New Zealand roughly correspond with precipitation gradients, wit ...

- ... BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Soil development follows a predictable pattern of nutrient availability over hundreds to thousands of years, which drives changes in the composition and productivity of associated plant communities. However, our understanding of the influence of soil forming factors such as parent material on ecosystem development is constrained by the scarcity of appropriate chronosequences. ...
