Abstract

Arun Singh Ramesh investigated growth, physiology and biochemistry of Flindersia species distributed along an elevation gradient in the Australian Wet Tropics. He found that a mountaintop restricted species was sensitive to high temperatures and demonstrated limited acclimation of growth and physiological functioning compared to more widespread species.
