Yanjie Liu, Haishan Niu and Xingliang Xu Foliar δ13C response patterns along a moisture gradient arising from genetic variation and phenotypic plasticity in grassland species of Inner Mongolia Ecology and Evolution 3
The spatial variation in foliar δ13C levels along a moisture gradient represents the interplay of genetic and plastic responses. We hypothesized that such a spatial variation would be more obvious than the variation arising purely from a plastic response to moisture change. This study was conducted on Leymus chinensis and Stipa spp. and our hypothesis was confirmed for Stipa spp., but not for L. chinensis.
