Relationships between anatomy and climate in members of the subfamily Pooideae
As climate continues to change, it will become increasingly important to accurately predict the landscape-level response of plant functional groups to climatic shifts. Relationships between vascular anatomy and climate distribution have been revealed in woody plant species, but little research has been done on this subject in the Poaceae family. These relationships were studied in 21 grass species from 5 genera in the subfamily Pooideae by analyzing their anatomical traits and climate data from each species' range. Analysis showed multiple correlations among anatomical traits, such as a positive ...
