At the ecosystem level, seedlings in particular compete with other vegetation components for light and nitrogen (N), which often constitute growth-limiting resources. In this study, we investigated the effect of light availability on the competition for N between seedlings of European beech and sycamore maple and analysed the consequences of this competition for the composition of N metabolites in fine roots. Our results show different strategies in N acquisition between beech and sycamore maple. Both species responded to reduced light availability by adapting their morphological and physiological traits with a decrease in biomass and net assimilation rate and an increase in specific leaf area and leaf area ratio. For beech seedlings, competition with sycamore maple led to a reduction in organic N uptake capacity. Reduced light availability led to a decrease in ammonium, but an increase in glutamine-N uptake capacity in sycamore maple. However, this response was stronger compared with that of beech and was accompanied by reduced growth. Thus, our results suggest better adaptation of N acquisition to reduced light availability in beech compared with sycamore maple seedlings.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Simon, Judy</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Li, Xiuyuan</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Rennenberg, Heinz</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/29512"/> <dc:contributor>Li, Xiuyuan</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Simon, Judy</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-01-15T14:44:36Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>Competition for nitrogen between European beech and sycamore maple shifts in favour of beech with decreasing light availability</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-01-15T14:44:36Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Rennenberg, Heinz</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
