Variation of Functional Traits of Quercus Seedlings from Different Provenances of Temperate Zone of NSTEC

  • Received Date: 2012-04-17
  • The differences in functional traits among species may be the result of both genetic differences and plasticity if species are measured in different environments. Common garden experiments can help determine the extent to which trait differences observed among species are genetic induced. Seeds of 6 Quercus species from 8 core distribution areas in temperate zone of North-South Transect of Eastern China(NSTEC)were pretreated and sown in the same environment. 5 functional traits of one year-old seedlings were measured, i.e., leaf mass per area (LMA), photosynthetic rate per unit leaf area (Aarea), photosynthetic rate per unit leaf mass(Amass), total dry matter content(TDMC), and root-shoot ratio(RSR). The difference and overall variation of different functional traits among intra-species and inter-species were analyzed, and the relationships between functional traits of seedlings and seed mass were discussed. The results show that: the interspecific variation coefficients of all functional traits were higher than intraspecific variation coefficient, and the interspecies differences of functional traits were also more significant, while variation of LMA and leaf photosynthetic rate were lower whatever among intra-species or inter-species; two functional traits(TDMC, RSR)were obvious correlated with seed mass, while the relationships of leaf photosynthetic rate and LMA with seed mass were relatively lower. It could explain that in temperate zone of NSTEC, the change of functional traits of Quercus species partly were the expression of difference among species affected by genetic evolution, so when studying the relationship among Quercus species and environment, the interspecies variation of functional traits cannot be neglected, and LMA could serve as a better index, and leaf photosynthetic rate take the second place.

Abstract: The differences in functional traits among species may be the result of both genetic differences and plasticity if species are measured in different environments. Common garden experiments can help determine the extent to which trait differences observed among species are genetic induced. Seeds of 6 Quercus species from 8 core distribution areas in temperate zone of North-South Transect of Eastern China(NSTEC)were pretreated and sown in the same environment. 5 functional traits of one year-old seedlings were measured, i.e., leaf mass per area (LMA), photosynthetic rate per unit leaf area (Aarea), photosynthetic rate per unit leaf mass(Amass), total dry matter content(TDMC), and root-shoot ratio(RSR). The difference and overall variation of different functional traits among intra-species and inter-species were analyzed, and the relationships between functional traits of seedlings and seed mass were discussed. The results show that: the interspecific variation coefficients of all functional traits were higher than intraspecific variation coefficient, and the interspecies differences of functional traits were also more significant, while variation of LMA and leaf photosynthetic rate were lower whatever among intra-species or inter-species; two functional traits(TDMC, RSR)were obvious correlated with seed mass, while the relationships of leaf photosynthetic rate and LMA with seed mass were relatively lower. It could explain that in temperate zone of NSTEC, the change of functional traits of Quercus species partly were the expression of difference among species affected by genetic evolution, so when studying the relationship among Quercus species and environment, the interspecies variation of functional traits cannot be neglected, and LMA could serve as a better index, and leaf photosynthetic rate take the second place.
