In the northern temperate zone, we often find the opposite of the trend in deciduousness
seen in the tropics.
This study of a humid, eucalypt savanna in northern Australia identified a range of leaf phenologies, with respect to the degree of deciduousness
, the timing of the major leaf phenophases, and the degree of synchrony both within and between species.
Variations in social wasp nesting occurrence are seemingly not related to the deciduousness
of the plant and its architectural patterns, with the exception of Synoeca cyanea (Fabricius, 1775), which possesses astelocyttarus type nests.
surface area, lower degree of deciduousness
, and higher hydathode
The variables that best explained differences in floristics were found to be related to the level of deciduousness
The main objectives of this paper were: i) identifying differences on the structure and parameters of flora, such as basal area, number of trees, richness and diversity in both sectors; and ii) investigating differences on the functional traits having leaf deciduousness
and dispersal mechanism as a basis.
Succulence and lowering of transpiration by thick cuticles, sunken stomata, drought deciduousness
of aerial portions of leaves (e.
Cordilheiras" are composed by cerrado species, with considerably deciduousness
during the dry season, what increases the temperature and the exposure to light of the forest interior.
It is evident that lianas must have adaptations for obtaining and efficiently using water in order to keep producing leaves in seasonal dry periods when many of the trees exhibit deciduousness
(Putz & Windsor, 1987).
Because of plant deciduousness
, herbivory is highly concentrated in the rainy season (Janzen and Waterman, 1984; Filip et al.
