Growth and morphogenesis of sun and shade plants. I. The influence of light intensity
Acta botanica neerlandica , Volume 32 - Issue 1/2 p. 49- 62
A number of herbacious sun and shade plants were grown at different light levels to investigate their adaptations in morphology and growth to light intensity. All species examined respond to low light intensity strongly, but very much the same. It is concluded that shade tolerance is not based on different adaptations in morphology or growth rate.
