Dent D & Burslem DFPR (2016) Leaf traits of dipterocarp species with contrasting distributions across a gradient of nutrient and light availability, Plant Ecology and Diversity, 9 (5-6), pp. 521-533.
Background: Tree species composition at the landscape scale is often tightly associated with underlying soil type in tropical forests. Changes in soil type may have effects on forest structure that drive changes in both light and soil resource availability, since light availability in the understorey tends to be lower in more fertile sites. Plant functional traits may determine species distributions across gradients of light and soil resource availability.
