The study aimed to identify how the manipulation of knowledge regarding a training task duration constrains the pacing and tactical behaviour of soccer players when playing small-sided games (SSG). Twenty professional and experienced soccer players participated in a cross-sectional field study using three conditions: not informed on the duration of the SSG, which ended after 20 min (Unknown Condition); briefed about playing the SSG for 10 min, but after they completed the 10-min game, they were ...

Background Tropical forests are threatened by intensifying natural and anthropogenic disturbance regimes. Disturbances reduce tree cover and leave the organic topsoil vulnerable to erosion processes, but when resources are still abundant forests usually recover.

Abstract. Tree water access via roots is crucial for forest functioning and therefore forests have developed a vast variety of rooting strategies across the globe. However, Dynamic Global Vegetation Models (DGVMs), which are increasingly used to simulate forest functioning, often condense this variety of tree rooting strategies into biome-scale averages, potentially under- or overestimating forest response to intra- and inter-annual variability in precipitation. Here we present a new approach of...

been no study examining the adaptive nature of gas inside wood across plants differing in biomechanical demands. - Using a comparative approach, we measured gas volumetric content, xylem's anatomical traits and wood density of 15 tree and 16 liana species, to test whether gas content varies between these plant types strongly differing in their biomechanical demands. We asked: (i) whether trees and lianas differ in gas content and (ii) how anatomical traits and wood density are related to gas con...

The fate of tropical forests under future climate change is dependent on the capacity of their trees to adjust to drier conditions. The capacity of trees to withstand drought is likely to be determined by traits associated with their hydraulic systems. However, data on whether tropical trees can adjust hydraulic traits when experiencing drought remain rare. We measured plant hydraulic traits (e.g. hydraulic conductivity and embolism resistance) and plant hydraulic system status (e.g. leaf water ...
