Plant Structure-Function Relationships and WoodyTissue Respiration: Upscaling to Forests from Laser-Derived Measurements

Meir, Patrick; Shenkin, Alexander; Disney, Mathias; Rowland, Lucy; Malhi, Yadvinder; Herold, Martin


Land surface processes dominate the observed global signal of large inter-annual variability in the global carbon cycle , and this signal is itself dominated by responses of tropical forests to climatic variation and extremes. However, our understanding of the functioning of these forests is poorly constrained, not least in terms of the size and climate-sensitivity of gross ecosystem respiratory CO2 emission. Woody tissue CO2 effluxes contribute substantially to gross ecosystem CO2 emissions,...[Show more]
