Examining the evidence for decoupling between photosynthesis and transpiration during heat extremes

De Kauwe, Martin G.; Medlyn, Belinda E.; Pitman, Andrew J.; Drake, John E.; Ukkola, Anna; Griebel, Anne; Pendall, Elise; Prober, Suzanne; Roderick, Michael


Recent experimental evidence suggests that during heat extremes, wooded ecosystems may decouple photosynthesis and transpiration, reducing photosynthesis to near zero but increasing transpiration into the boundary layer. This feedback may act to dampen, rather than amplify, heat extremes in wooded ecosystems. We examined eddy covariance databases (OzFlux and FLUXNET2015) to identify whether there was field-based evidence to support these experimental findings. We focused on two types of heat...[Show more]
