Abstract

  • The ecophysiological characteristics of Alnus hirsuta Trucz., Populus alba L., and Taxodium distichum L. saplings under flooding conditions were examined. Flooding caused reduction in gross photosynthetic rate (Pgmax) and chlorophyll fluorescence yield and reduced the growth of the A. hirsuta and P. alba saplings. On the other hand, the reductions in gross photosynthetic rate (Pgmax) and chlorophyll fluorescence yield were small, and the growth was not reduced during flooding period in the T. distichum saplings. The development of adventitious roots on the submerged stems was observed in the P. alba and A. hirsuta saplings. In the T. distichum saplings, diameter growth of the submerged stems was accelerated under the flooding condition without the development of adventitious roots on them.
