Leaf cooling curves: measuring leaf temperature in sunlight

Leigh, Andrea; Close, John; Ball, Marilyn; Siebke, Katharina; Nicotra, Adrienne


Despite the obvious benefits of using thermography under field conditions, most infrared studies at the leaf level are generally conducted in the laboratory. One reason for this bias is that accuracy can potentially be compromised in sunlight because reflected radiation from the leaf might affect the calculation of the temperature measurement. We have developed a method for measuring leaf temperature in sunlight by using thermal imagery to generate cooling curves from which the time constant...[Show more]
