A model-data comparison of gross primary productivity: Results from the North American Carbon Program site synthesisDownload
Anderson, R., Poulter, B., Matamala, R., Lokipitiya, E., Chen, J.M., Verbeeck, H., Davis, K.J., Weng, E., Curtis, P.S., Tonitto, C., Munger, J.W., Ricciuto, D., Chen, J., Gu, L., Humphreys, E., Desai, A.R., Price, D.T., Raczka, B.M., Zhou, X., Peng, C., Torn, M., Hollinger, D.Y., Riley, W.J., Roulet, N., Black, A., Bolstad, P., Baker, I., Thornton, P., Monson, R., Jain, A., Law, B., Gough, C., Margolis, H.A., Dimitrov, D., Grant, R.F., Liu, S., McCaughey, J.H., Hilton, T.W., Sahoo, A., Dietze, M., Schaefer, K., Williams, C., Dragoni, D., Tian, H., Vargas, R., Schwalm, C.R., Richardson, A.D., Oechel, W., Kucharik, C., Barr, A., Altaf Arain, M.
Accurately simulating gross primary productivity (GPP) in terrestrial ecosystem models is critical because errors in simulated GPP propagate through the model to introduce additional errors in simulated biomass and other fluxes. We evaluated simulated, daily average GPP from 26 models against...
Ecophysiological adaptations of black spruce (Picea mariana) and tamarack (Larix laricina) seedlings to flooding.Download
Black spruce and tamarack are the predominant tree species in boreal peatlands. The effects of flooding on morphological and physiological responses were investigated in greenhouse grown (18 months old) black spruce (Picea mariana) and tamarack (Larix laricina) seedlings for 34 days. Flooding...
With climate change rapidly affecting northern forests and wetlands, mercury reserves once protected in cold, wet soils are being exposed to burning, likely triggering large releases of mercury to the atmosphere. We quantify organic soil mercury stocks and burn areas across western, boreal Canada...
Changes in net ecosystem productivity and greenhouse gas exchange with fertilization of Douglas fir: Mathematical modeling in ecosysDownload
Abstract: The application of nitrogen fertilizers to Douglas fir forests is known to raise net ecosystem productivity (NEP), but also N(2)O emissions, the CO(2) equivalent of which may offset gains in NEP when accounting for net greenhouse gas (GHG) exchange. However, total changes in NEP and...
Abstract: Enriching plant tissues with C-13 and N-15 isotopes has provided long-lasting, non-reactive tracers to quantify rates of terrestrial elemental fluxes (e.g., soil organic matter decomposition). However, the molecular location and level of isotope enrichment may differ among plant...
Heterogeneous distribution of pectin epitopes and calcium in different pit types of four angiosperm speciesDownload
Intervessel pits act as safety valves that prevent the spread of xylem embolism. Pectin–calcium crosslinks within the pit membrane have been proposed to affect xylem vulnerability to cavitation. However, as the chemical composition of pit membranes is poorly understood, this hypothesis has not...
We estimated heritabilities and correlations for bud flushing and growth traits of white spruce seedlings, and the correlations of seedling traits with 10- and 11-year height of the same families in the field. The seedling greenhouse experiment had a randomized complete block design with 30...
Carabid Assemblages (Coleoptera: Carabidae) in a Rotation of Three Different Crops in Southern Alberta, Canada: A Comparison of Sustainable and Conventional FarmingDownload
Carabids were sampled in 2000 (pretreatment year) and 2003-2005 in experimental plots in southern Alberta. Canada, after a rotation of beans, and potato under sustainable and conventional farming practices. Each phase of the rotation was present in every year. Crop type had stronger effect than...
