Leaf respiration in tropical and temperate rainforest tree species : responses to environmental gradients

Kohontissa Wasala, Lasantha Kumara Weerasinghe

Description

Among forest biomes, tropical and temperate rainforests often show high rates of net primary production (NPP), with rainforests playing a major role in controlling current and future atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations, and the total amount of carbon stored in vegetation globally. Quantifying rates of leaf respiration (R) of rainforest species and how changes in environment (e.g. light, short- and long-term changes in temperature (T), gradients in nutrient availability) affect R in...[Show more]
