  • RE: Abstract of Tylewicz et al's article

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I found the article very interesting. Being from Chile, though, I have a minor observation to the very first sentence of the abstract. It says: "In temperate and boreal ecosystems, seasonal cycles of growth and dormancy allow perennial plants to adapt to winter conditions. " However, the word "boreal" usually refers to northern latitudes and, by extension, to the Northern Hemisphere (e.g see in Wikipedia at: Notwitstanding that, the same seasonal cycles of growth and dormancy in perennial plants do occcur in the southernmost areas of the Southern Hemisphere as well.

    Best regards,
