Evergreen leaf respiration acclimates to long-term nocturnal warming under field conditions

Bruhn, Dan; Egerton, John (Jack); Loveys, Beth; Ball, Marilyn


Acclimation of plant respiration rates (R) to climate warming is highly variable and many results appear contradictory. We tested the recently suggested hypotheses that pre-existing, long-lived leaves should exhibit a relatively limited ability for R to acclimate to climate warming, and that acclimation would occur via changes in the short-term temperature sensitivity of respiration. Seedlings of a subalpine, evergreen tree species (Eucalyptus pauciflora) were grown under naturally fluctuating...[Show more]
