Comparative Nutrient Economy, Stable Isotopes, and Related Adaptive Traits in Picea rubens, Picea mariana, and Their Hybrids

Nutrient- and water economy-related traits in plants have significant implications for growth and fitness. We examined and compared nutrient concentrations, use efficiencies, assimilation, and informative isotopic elements in a seedling provenance experiment, and in seedling and mature tree controlled-cross hybrid experiments of red spruce (RS) (Picea rubens Sarg.) and black spruce (BS) (P. mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.).
