- ... Populus nigra L. represents a model system for plant biology and has a productive interest in breeding for short rotation forestry. The growth potential and adaptive capacity of this species are well characterized, but the canopy effect is poorly investigated. We analyzed morphological and functional leaf traits across a multilayer canopy profile in two contrasting clones of this species, 58–861 a ...
