Respiratory flexibility and efficiency are affected by simulated global change in Arctic plants

Kornfeld, Ari; Heskel, Mary A; Atkin, Owen; Gough, Laura; Griffin , Kevin L; Horton , Travis W; Turnbull, Matthew H


Laboratory studies indicate that, in response to environmental conditions, plants modulate respiratory electron partitioning between the 'energy-wasteful' alternative pathway (AP) and the 'energy-conserving' cytochrome pathway (CP). Field data, however, are scarce. Here we investigate how 20-yr field manipulations simulating global change affected electron partitioning in Alaskan Arctic tundra species. We sampled leaves from three dominant tundra species - Betula nana, Eriophorum vaginatum and...[Show more]
