Growth and carbon stock change in eucalypt woodlands in northeast Australia: ecological and greenhouse sink implications
Data from 57 permanent monitoring sites are used to document the growth in woody vegetation and estimate the carbon sink in 27Mha of eucalypt woodlands (savannas), contained withii c. 6OMha of grazedExpand

Variation in the oxygen isotope ratio of phloem sap sucrose from castor bean. Evidence in support of the Péclet effect.
Theory suggests that the level of enrichment of (18)O above source water in plant organic material (Delta) may provide an integrative indicator of control of water loss. However, there are still gapsExpand

A rapid on‐line technique for determination of oxygen isotope composition of nitrogen‐containing organic matter and water
A rapid, inexpensive on-line technique for the analysis of stable isotopes of oxygen in organic matter and water is described. The oxygen in the sample is pyrolysed over nickelized carbon using aExpand
