Abstract d13
C values of C3 plants are indicators of plant
carbon≠water relations that integrate plant responses to
environmental conditions. However, few studies have
quantified spatial variation in plant d13
C at the landscape
scale. We determined variation in leaf d13
C, leaf nitrogen
per leaf area (Narea), and specific leaf area (SLA) in April
and August 2005 for all individuals of three common
woody species within a 308 9 12-m belt transect spanning
an upland≠lowland topoedaphic gradient in a subtropical
