  1. doi request reprint Carbon dynamics in trees: feast or famine?
    Anna Sala
    Division of Biological Sciences, The University of Montana, Missoula, MT 59812, USA
    Tree Physiol 32:764-75. 2012
    ..Much research is needed to elucidate the extent to which allocation of C to storage in trees is a passive vs. an active process, the specific functions of stored C pools, and the factors that drive active C allocation to storage...
  2. doi request reprint Masting in whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis) depletes stored nutrients
    Anna Sala
    Division of Biological Sciences, The University of Montana, Missoula, MT 59812, USA
    New Phytol 196:189-99. 2012
    ..We provide direct evidence that mast events in wild trees deplete stored nutrients. Our results highlight the importance of evaluating reproductive costs over time and at the individual level...
  3. doi request reprint Height-related growth declines in ponderosa pine are not due to carbon limitation
    Anna Sala
    Division of Biological Sciences, The University of Montana, Missoula, MT 59812, USA
    Plant Cell Environ 32:22-30. 2009
    ..Our results provide first direct evidence that carbon supply does not limit growth in tall trees and that decreases of water availability might negatively impact growth processes more than net-photosynthesis...
  4. pmc Sensitivity of the invasive geophyte Oxalis pes-caprae to nutrient availability and competition
    Anna Sala
    Division of Biological Sciences, The University of Montana, Missoula, MT 59812, USA
    Ann Bot 99:637-45. 2007
    ..Because Oxalis accumulates oxalic acid in its leaves, which could ameliorate soil phosphorous availability, field observations were made to determine whether the presence of Oxalis alters soil P availability...
  5. ncbi request reprint Hydraulic compensation in northern Rocky Mountain conifers: does successional position and life history matter?
    Anna Sala
    Division of Biological Sciences, The University of Montana, Missoula, MT 59812, USA
    Oecologia 149:1-11. 2006
    ..A life history approach that takes into account the optimization of size- and species-specific ecological functions may also help researchers better understand biomass allocation and hydraulic function in trees...
  6. ncbi request reprint Physiological responses of ponderosa pine in western Montana to thinning, prescribed fire and burning season
    Anna Sala
    Division of Biological Sciences, The University of Montana, Missoula, MT 59812, USA
    Tree Physiol 25:339-48. 2005
    ..Prescribed fire (either in the spring or in the fall) in addition to thinning, had no measurable effect on the mid-term physiological performance and wood growth of second growth ponderosa pine...

    Thomas H DeLuca
    Department of Ecosystem and Conservation Sciences, University of Montana, Missoula, Montana 59812, USA
    Ecology 87:2511-22. 2006
    ..Our results corroborate the largely untested hypothesis that frequent fire in ponderosa pine forests increases inorganic N availability in the long term and emphasize the need to study natural, unmanaged sites in far greater detail...

    Jennifer R Gremer
    Division of Biological Sciences, University of Montana, Missoula, MT, USA
    Oecologia 172:937-47. 2013
    ..These results demonstrate that the risk of emerging and experiencing stress entails considerable costs, supporting the hypothesis that prolonged dormancy is a beneficial strategy to avoid such risk. ..
