The effect of water status and soil fertility on the C-isotope signature in Pinus radiata

Korol, R L; Kirschbaum, Miko U. F.; Jeffreys, M; Farquhar, Graham


The efficiency with which trees use water is a major determinant of growth under water-limited conditions. We investigated whether increased access to water and nutrients alters water-use efficiency in Pinus radiata D. Don. Intrinsic transpiration efficiency, defined here as the ratio of CO2 assimilated and water transpired at a given vapor pressure deficit, is determined by the difference between ambient atmospheric CO2 concentration (C(a)) and leaf intercellular CO2 concentration (C(i)). The...[Show more]
