New insights into carbon allocation by trees from the hypothesis that annual wood production is maximized

McMurtrie, Ross; Dewar, Roderick

Description

Allocation of carbon (C) between tree components (leaves, fine roots and woody structures) is an important determinant of terrestrial C sequestration. Yet, because the mechanisms underlying C allocation are poorly understood, it is a weak link in current
