Nitrogen addition method affects growth and nitrogen accumulation in seedlings of four subtropical tree species: Schima superba Gardner & Champ., Pinus massoniana Lamb., Acacia mangium Willd., and Ormosia pinnata Lour

N addition (56, 156, and 206 kg N ha−1 yr−1as dissolved NH4NO3) method (canopy vs soil) did not affect the biomass of N2-fixers (Acacia mangium Willd. and Ormosia pinnata Lour.), but significantly affected the biomass of non-N2-fixers

Interactive effects of defoliation and water deficit on growth, water status, and mortality of black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.)

Defoliation followed by water deficit showed time-dependent effects on plant water status and growth in black spruce ( Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.). Biotic stress negatively (during active defoliation by growing instars) and positively (after defoliation) affected plant
