Leaf growth physiology

Leaf growth physiology
Leaf growth physiology
The growth and productivity of trees, whether in agricultural or natural settings, depends in large part on the expansion and display of photosynthetic surface area, the leaves. The timing of bud break in the spring, the pattern of cell formation and expansion in the growing leaves, the rate of leaf expansion, and the duration and efficiency of photosynthetic activity through the growing season all affect the amount of carbon that can be fixed, and ultimately the size of the tree. All of these traits vary to lesser or greater degree among species and...

Abstract

The growth and productivity of trees, whether in agricultural or natural settings, depends in large part on the expansion and display of photosynthetic surface area, the leaves. The timing of bud break in the spring, the pattern of cell formation and expansion in the growing leaves, the rate of leaf expansion, and the duration and efficiency of photosynthetic activity through the growing season all affect the amount of carbon that can be fixed, and ultimately the size of the tree. All of these traits vary to lesser or greater degree among species and...
