For six tropical rainforests pecies, young leaves produced on rapidly flushings hoots had markedlyl ower reflectancei n the UV-B region than did mature leaves and contained higher levels of anthocyaninsa nd total phenols. Progressive changes in these characteristicps rovide empirical support for an earlier suggestiont hat anthocyaninsi n flushings hoots of tropicalt rees have adaptive value throught heir ultravioleta bsorption.
