Abstract

There was a strong accumulation of non-structural carbohydrates in the root and stem tissue, particularly at low temperatures and short daylengths. This was most obvious in the arctic birch population. The highest nitrogen and phosphorus accumulation was, on the other hand, found in leaves at high temperatures and moderate daylengths. As a result the C/N ratio between the total non-structural carbohydrate and total nitrogen content decreased with increasing temperature. The ecological significance of these results were discussed.
