Do you know what about the elevation gradient could drive changes in dehydroabietane in the leaves?
Hi Dr. Elizabeth Herndon, thanks for your question. Yes, the elevation gradient ranged from 30 to 100 m/km. Dehydroabietane derived from Ashe Juniper leaves has shown strong correlation with the elevation (p<0.05). Ashe Juniper is an anisohydric plant and has a relatively shallow rooting system, so water content in the leaves was lower in summer and in higher elevation. The trend of dehydroabietane with the elevation was the same with that of water content.
