Carbon isotope discrimination by Eucalyptus species in the Northern Territory, Australia

Miller, Jeffrey M.

Description

Carbon isotope discrimination (Δ) reflects the balance between the supply of C0₂ into the intercellular airspaces of a leaf and the demand of photosynthesis for C0₂ from those intercellular airspaces. The conductance of C0₂ into a leaf depends upon the plant being able to sustain the co-occurring transpiration, which requires the acquisition and transport of water at rates equal to the evaporative demand. The photosynthetic demand for C0₂ depends upon the investment of nutrients, primarily...[Show more]
