Within-crown pattern of ecophysiological features in leaves ofAcer campestre andCarpinus betulus

  • Josef Huzulák
  • Pavol Eliáš


The crowns of mature sample trees ofAcer campstre L. andCarpinus betulus L. growing in a closed forest served for the determination of water content in leaves, of specific leaf area and stomatal density. Three layers were taken into account, the position of the leaf with regard to the exposure of the particular portion of the crown, leaf insertion within the limb, and changes in the course of the growing period.
