Thermal acclimation of leaf dark respiration of beech seedlings experiencing summer drought in high and low light environments

Rodriguez-Calcerrada, Jesus; Atkin, Owen; Robson , Matthew; Zaragoza-Castells, Joana; Gil , Luis; Aranda , Ismael


Little is known about how environmental factors shape the short- and long-term responses of leaf respiration to temperature under field conditions despite the importance of respiration for plant and stand carbon balances. Impacts of water availability and canopy cover on leaf dark respiration (R) and temperature sensitivity were assessed in beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) seedlings in a sub-Mediterranean population. We studied seedlings established within canopy gaps (39% global site factor; GSF)...[Show more]
