New model for distinguishing different leaf N by N morphology and N function [31]. Leaf N was divided into water-soluble protein N (Nw), SDS-soluble protein N (Ns), SDS-insoluble protein N (Nin-SDS) and non-protein N (Nnp) by morphology (a). Leaf N was divided into respiratory N (Nrep), structural N (Nstr), photosynthetic N (Npsn, which was composed by carboxylation N (Ncb), electron transfer N (Net) and light capture N (Nlc)) and storage N (Nstore) by function (b)
