Distribution and variations of potassium and calcium in different cross sections of Picea abies (L) Karst needles and Fagus sylvatica (L) leaves exposed to ozone and mild water stress

Abstract : Two clones of 8-year-old Norway spruce trees, and beech trees, planted directly into the soil in open-top chambers, were exposed to elevated ozone concentrations and subjected to a mild soil drought stress. The nutrient partitioning and intertreatment differences in nutrient levels were studied. In elevated ozone, both clones had increased potassium and calcium levels, whereas in beech, ozone-treated trees had decreased potassium levels. Drought caused decreases in these nutrients for all species. The effect of combining the 2 stresses was more complex, however, and the previously observed effects were not obtained in all cell tissues. Furthermore, they showed both interspecific and interclonal differences. The hypothesis that ozone affects the root nutrition and cell membrane permeability is discussed.
