原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Maize ( Zea mays L.) morphological traits influence light attenuation within the canopy, and, ultimately, yield. The objectives of this 3-year field study were to: (i) examine the morphological characteristics of specific genotypes using varieties of maize that were widely used in Chinese agriculture from the 1950s to the 2000s; (ii) assess the canopies and yields of maize populations in relation to changes in their morphological characteristics. There were significant decrease on the ear ratio, center of gravity height and leaf angle with improved genotypes regardless of plant density. However, the ear leaves and adjacent leaves appeared to be longer in improved maize varieties. The mean leaf orientation value (LOV) and individual LOVs increased considerably during the time...
