The apparent temperature response of leaf respiration depends on the timescale of measurements: a study of two cold climate species

Bruhn, Dan; Schortemeyer, Marcus; Edwards, Everard; Egerton, John (Jack); Hocart, Charles; Evans, John; Ball, Marilyn


Productivity and climate models often use a constant Q10 for plant respiration, assuming tight control of respiration by temperature. We studied the temperature response of leaf respiration of two cold climate species (the Australian tree Eucalyptus pauciflora and the subantarctic megaherb Pringlea antiscorbutica, both measured in a field setting) on a short timescale (minutes) during different times within a diel course, and on a longer timescale, using diel variations in ambient temperature....[Show more]
