Leaf morphology in silver beech (Nothofagus menziesii)

This honours project in leaf morphology examines New Zealand’s Nothofagus menziesii.

More commonly known as the ‘silver beech’, this flora holds important clues to the way in which trees coped with the major climate changes that occurred during the glacial cycles over the last several hundred thousand years.
