Resumo

Not all plant traits from all regions have been standardized or databased. Some ecosystems, such as tropical grasslands, are under-represented in such databases owing to the difficulty in assessing bud banks and evaluating clonal growth. This study aimed to (i) determine whether Brazilian morphological traits of belowground organs can be translated into categories used in the CLO-PLA database and (ii) assess the applicability of clonal and bud bank traits standardized in the CLO-PLA database for Brazilian Aldama species, which have specialized belowground organs and are able to resprout. In all, 165 species, including herbs, subshrubs and shrubs, of 37 genera from different Brazilian ecosystems, were evaluated. Not all the traditional Brazilian morphological categories could be translated into CLO-PLA traits, resulting in a lower number of categories and loss of information regarding plant morphology. Furthermore, clonal and bud bank traits could be only partially evaluated for Aldama, since some traits showed seasonal variation. The CLO-PLA classification focused on the organs in relation to the soil surface, the connection between mother and daughter shoots, and the origin of buds from which daughter shoots sprout. In the Brazilian classification, by contrast, anatomical features or early ontogeny of the organ are very important. Nevertheless, our results might form the basis for future comparative studies across ecosystems and biomes, for which common trait standardization is necessary. However, further research is needed to assess the functional morphology of clonal and bud bank traits in tropical regions. (AU)
