Thermal acclimation and the dynamic response of plant respiration to temperature

Atkin, Owen; Tjoelker, Mark G


Temperature-mediated changes in plant respiration (R) are now accepted as an important component of the biosphere's response to global climate change. Here we discuss the underlying mechanisms responsible for the dynamic response of plant respiration to short and long-term temperature changes. The Q 10 is often assumed to be 2.0 (i.e. R doubles per 10°C rise in temperature); however, the Q10 is not constant (e.g. it declines near-linearly with increasing temperature). The temperature dependence...[Show more]
