Photosynthetic characterisation of tropical and temperate rainforest species
Rubisco catalyses a rate-limiting step in photosynthesis and is the largest nitrogen sink in leaves. The maximum rate of carboxylation of Rubisco, Vcmax, is routinely estimated from gas exchange using the Farquhar, von Caemmerer & Berry 1980 model of photosynthesis. As Vcmax allows mechanistic representation of photosynthesis, it has been incorporated into terrestrial biosphere models to estimate global primary productivity. However, doubts remain about...[Show more]
