The Agave potatorum complex, of group Hiemiflorae, is revised. Two new taxa from Oaxaca, Agave nussaviorum and A. nussaviorum subsp. deltoidea, are described and illustrated. The new species is compared with Agave seemanniana Jacobi and A. potatorum Zucc. Information concerning its distribution, ethnobotany, and phenology, and an identification key to the taxa of the complex are provided.

    In temperate zones, trees tend to unfold their leaves earlier due to climate warming. However, changes in the timing of the bud development also affect the dynamics of the cold-hardening process, which may increase frost injuries endured by trees because new leaves unfold at a period when frost...

    Background and aims Plant species typical of cold and warm habitats differ in a suite of morpho-physio-phenological traits, although their evolutionary routes have been poorly explored. Here, it is advocated that traits typical of different climate regimes can be largely driven by contrasting...

    We investigated whether timing and rate of growth are related to the life strategies and fitness of three conifer species. Intra-annual dynamics of wood formation, shoot elongation and needle phenology were monitored over 3 years in five Norway spruces (Picea abies (L.) Karst.), five Scots pines...
