Abstract

Obviously more experimental work will have to be done before we can fully understand the adaptive significance of the zeromorphic leaf characteristics of bog evergreens. The results of our study show that the evergreen bog shrubs are not suffering from "physiological drought" and that extreme caution must be used in forming conclusions about functional adaptations on the basis of morphological features.
