Response analysis of Quercus leucotrichophora seedlings along the nutrient gradient
This study includes the response analysis of Quercus leucotrichophora along a nutrient gradient. Seedlings of Quercus leucotrichophora were grown along the nutrient gradient which constituited the lower and higher range of Central Himalayan forest. Height growth, dry mass, leaf weight ratio, leaf production, leaf area, leaf drop and foliar nitrogen concentration showed significant positive correlation (P less 0.05 and P more 0.01) with soil nutrient levels whereas root: shoot ratio, nitrogen retranslocation and above ground productivity per g of leaf nitrogen showed negative correlation (P less 0.05 and P more 0.01) with soil nitrogen levels.
