Although the germinant and young seedling life stage of trees has the highest mortality rates, our understanding of their fundamental physiology is surprisingly limited in naturally-occurring environments. Field measurements for this life stage are particularly important because of the uniquely harsh environment these small trees experience: their proximity to the soil surface results in an exceptionally dynamic microclimate with large daily shifts in such parameters as temperature, humiditydoi:10.1007/978-94-007-1242-3_3 fatcat:qehx4gwmczgvbpxbrliqde7bwu
