studies have reported N concentration decreases during the growing season ( Löhnertz, 1991 ; Wermelinger, 1991 ; Williams and Biscay, 1991 ). Our results are consistent with previous findings of a dilution effect of not only N, but also P and K

-temperature treatment (356 vs. 256 μmol/root for JR and 428 vs. 369 μmol/root for SQ) suggesting that the increase in GSL concentrations resulting from high temperatures was not strictly the result of a dilution effect. Cultivars and tissues varied in individual

concentrations in new stems of 16.8-UF and 33.6-UF is a dilution effect of biomass on the amount of N in the stem. Green ash trees fertilized with higher N rates from UF in 2005 were more active and had a higher demand for C from reserves in old stems earlier in

( Römheld, 2012 ). In addition, the decreased foliar concentrations of N and Ca with increasing organic fertilization rates suggest the presence of a dilution effect associated with the increased plant growth ( Fig. 2A and B ). Foliar concentrations of N, K
