Bringing the Kok effect to light: A review on the integration of daytime respiration and net ecosystem exchange

Heskel, Mary; Atkin, Owen; Turnbull, Matthew H; Griffin , Kevin L


Net ecosystem exchange (NEE) represents the difference between carbon assimilated through photosynthesis, or gross primary productivity (GPP), and carbon released via ecosystem respiration (ER). NEE, measured via eddy covariance and chamber techniques, must be partitioned into these fluxes to accurately describe and underst and the carbon dynamics of an ecosystem. GPP and daytime ER may be significantly overestimated if the light inhibition of foliar mitochondrial respiration, or "Kok effect,"...[Show more]
