Guang-You Hao, Guillermo Goldstein, Lawren Sack, N. Michele Holbrook, Zhi-Hui Liu, Ai-Ying Wang, Rhett D. Harrison, Zhi-Hui Su, and Kun-Fang Cao. 2011. Ecology of hemiepiphytism in fig species is based on evolutionary correlation of hydraulics and carbon economy. Ecology 92:2117–2130.

Appendix A (FIG. A1). A figure showing correlations between stem hydraulic conductivity and wood density in Ficus species. The correlations between wood density (ρwood) and (A) sapwood-specific hydraulic conductivity (Ks); (B) leaf-specific hydraulic conductivity (Kl). Note that the data have been plotted on logarithmic scales. The straight lines describe the logarithmic equations fitted to species mean values. Data were fitted separately for hemiepiphytic (filled symbols) and non-hemiepiphytic (open symbols) species. Symbols for species are as defined in Fig. 1. Phylogenetic independent contrast correlations are shown in panels (C) and (D).
