Nutrient accumulation by tropical trees

What is it about?

This paper analysed nutrient accumulation in aboveground biomass among 4 tree groups using 83 stands data, to find differences in nutrient use between species.

Why is it important?

Using model II regressions, we explained differences in nutrient use by tropical trees. We took care about shift of investment in leaf and in stem + twig during growth periods. And we also focus on differences in biomass size, instead of considering nutrient residential time in biomass.
