Effects of mesophyll conductance on vegetation responses to elevated CO 2 concentrations in a land surface model

Knauer, Jürgen; Zaehle, S.; De Kauwe, Martin G.; Abdul Bahar, Nur; Evans, John; Medlyn, Belinda E.; Reichstein, M.; Werner, Christiane


Mesophyll conductance (gm) is known to affect plant photosynthesis. However, gm is rarely explicitly considered in land surface models (LSMs), with the consequence that its role in ecosystem and large‐scale carbon and water fluxes is poorly understood. In particular, the different magnitudes of gm across plant functional types (PFTs) are expected to cause spatially divergent vegetation responses to elevated CO2 concentrations. Here, an extensive literature compilation of gm across major...[Show more]
