Photosynthetic parameters, dark respiration and leaf traits in the canopy of a Peruvian tropical montane cloud forest

van de Weg, Martine J; Meir, Patrick; Grace, J; Ramos, Guilmair Damian


Few data are available describing the photosynthetic parameters of the leaves of tropical montane cloud forests (TMCF). Here, we present a study of photosynthetic leaf traits (Vcmax and Jmax), foliar dark respiration (Rd), foliar nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P), and leaf mass per area (LMA) throughout the canopy for five different TMCF species at 3025 m a. s. l. in Andean Peru. All leaf traits showed a significant relationship with canopy height when expressed on an area basis, and Vcmax-area...[Show more]
