    Abstract: Many selected populations from plants and animals have been frequently used as indicators species for monitoring ecological changes and ecosystems dynamics overtime, giving early warning signs for possible deviations in ecosystems, and allowing for measuring performance of management interventions. However, there is recent criticism and discussion ... Show More

    Abstract: Plant biomass allocation is a central issue in ecology. Plant ontogeny, as biotic influencing factors, spurs allocation shift among plant different organs. The difficulty is separating the obscure and mixed effect of ontogeny and environmental stress on biomass allocation because of lacking specific information during plant whole life history. In c...
