Does growth irradiance affect temperature dependence and thermal acclimation of leaf respiration? Insights from a Mediterranean tree with long-lived leaves

Zaragoza-Castells, Joana; Sanchez-Gomez, David; Valladares, Fernando; Hurry, Vaughan; Atkin, Owen


Understanding the response of leaf respiration (R) to changes in irradiance and temperature is a prerequisite for predicting the impacts of climate change on plant function and future atmospheric CO2 concentrations. Little is known, however, about the interactive effects of irradiance and temperature on leaf R. We investigated whether growth irradiance affects the temperature response of leaf R in darkness (Rdark) and in light (R light) in seedlings of a broad-leaved evergreen species, Quercus...[Show more]
