Bean plants, trimmed to a simplified “double source, double sink” translocation system (the paired primary leaves serving as the double source and the paired lateral leaflets of the immature first trifoliate leaf as the double sink) were used to study the magnitude and short-term time course of...
Comparison of boreal ecosystem model sensitivity to variability in climate and forest site parametersDownload
Ecosystem models are useful tools for evaluating environmental controls on carbon and water cycles under past or future conditions. In this paper we compare annual carbon and water fluxes from nine boreal spruce forest ecosystem models in a series of sensitivity simulations. For each comparison,...
Current uptake of 15N –labeled ammonium and nitrate in flooded and non-flooded black spruce and tamarack seedlings.Download
We investigated the effects of flooding for three weeks on physiological responses and uptake of NH4+ and NO3- by black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP.) and tamarack (Larix laricina (Du Roi) K. Koch) seedlings fertilized with labeled (15NH4)2SO4 or K15NO3 in a growth chamber experiment....
Light (about 3,000 foot-candles) neither increased nor decreased the sink strength of young, rapidly expanding leaves of Phaseolus vulgaris L. cv. Black Valentine, as measured by the comparative rates of import of 14C-labeled photosynthates by sink leaves in the light versus dark in short term...
The confidence with which we can model water deficit effects on grassland productivity is limited by uncertainty about the mechanisms, stomatal and nonstomatal, by which soil water deficits reduce CO2 uptake. We propose that these reductions can accurately be modeled from a combination of...
Terrestrial vegetation contributes strongly to dynamic biosphere-atmosphere exchanges of mass and energy, through activities such as photosynthesis, that help shape the Earth’s climate. The boreal forest is located in high latitudes and subject to large seasonal temperature fluctuations and a...
In photosynthetic organisms it is becoming increasingly evident that light-driven shifts in redox potential act as a sensor that initiates alterations in gene expression at both the level of transcription and translation. This report provides evidence that the expression of a cyanobacterial RNA...
Annual trends of the Photochemical Reflectance Index (PRI) and pigment content in evergreen conifer leaves were monitored over two years from 2011 to 2013. During the second year, chlorophyll fluorescence and gas exchange were included to examine the spring recovery of photosynthesis. All the...
