<p>(A) specific leaf area of tree and seedling communities; (B) leaf dry matter content of tree and seedling communities; (C) leaf total chlorophyll content of tree and seedling communities; (D) leaf nitrogen concentration per mass of tree and seedling communities; (E) leaf phosphorus concentration per mass of tree and seedling communities. We only show the significant regression line. Red points and line represent 18-year-old fallow. Green points and line represent 30-year-old fallow. Black points and line represent 60-year-old fallow. Blue points and line represent old growth forest. Purple line represents total (all the four successional stages combined). * <i>P</i> < 0.05.</p>
