Gross Primary Productivity of a High Elevation Tropical Montane Cloud Forest

van de Weg, Martine J; Meir, Patrick; Williams, Mat; Girardin, Cécile A.J.; Malhi, Yadvinder; Silva-Espejo, Javier E; Grace, John


For decades, the productivity of tropical montane cloud forests (TMCF) has been assumed to be lower than in tropical lowland forests due to nutrient limitation, lower temperatures, and frequent cloud immersion, although actual estimates of gross primary productivity (GPP) are very scarce. Here, we present the results of a process-based modeling estimate of GPP, using a soil-plant-atmosphere model, of a high elevation Peruvian TMCF. The model was parameterized with field-measured physiological...[Show more]
