Abstract

Root connections and clonal behavior was studied in 1-14 year- old developing aspen. Functional connections remained through age 14. Stem and root node density declined exponentially over time. Biomass and leaf area increased sharply at age 8-14. Growth was dependent upon crown position. Ramet populations were strongly aggregated
