Title: Nutrient composition of blades, petioles, and whole leaves from fertilized and unfertilized yellow-poplar

Author: Auchmoody, L. R.;

Date: 1974

Source: Research Note NE-198. Upper Darby, PA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station. 5p.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: Nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) concentrations in leaf blades and petioles obtained from three fertilized and three unfertilized yellow-poplar sample trees were determined annually during a 4-year period. Concentrations were substantially higher in blades than in petioles. Fertilization increased N and P concentrations in blades, but petioles showed only a slight increase in N and a decrease in P. Because blades were more responsive to changes in external nutrient supply than petioles, and because fertilization affected the composition of blades and whole leaves unequally, blades give a more sensitive and accurate measure of nutrient concentration than petioles or whole leaves.

Keywords: Foliar sampling material, Liriodendron tulipifera
