Partitioning overstory and understory evapotranspiration in a semiarid savanna woodland from the isotopic composition of water vapor
The relative contributions of overstory and understory plant transpiration and soil evaporation to total evapotranspiration (ET) in a semiarid savanna woodland were determined from stable isotopeExpand

Effect of Growth Form, Salinity, Nutrient and Sulfide on Photosynthesis, Carbon Isotope Discrimination and Growth of Red Mangrove (Rhizophora mangle L.)
The red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle L.), a dominant mangrove species in Florida, frequently occurs in two distinct growth forms, scrub and tall trees. These two growth forms show significantExpand

Influence of mangrove detritus in an estuarine ecosystem
This study has determined the relationship and extent of mangrove reduced carbon flow and its contribution to the diet of higher consumers in a nearby seagrass bed using stable isotope techniques. InExpand

Isotopic carbon composition and related characters of dominant species along an environmental gradient in Inner Mongolia, China
Carbon isotope composition (d 13 C value) provides a useful measure of integrated water-use efficiency (WUE) of plants and can be used to rank the drought tolerance of different species. WeExpand

Leaf respiration is differentially affected by leaf vs. stand‐level night‐time warming
Plant respiration is an important physiological process in the global carbon cycle serving as a major carbon flux from the biosphere to the atmosphere. Respiration is sensitive to temperatureExpand

Tracing Changes in Ecosystem Function under Elevated Carbon Dioxide Conditions
Abstract Responses of ecosystems to elevated levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) remain a critical uncertainty in global change research. Two key unknown factors are the fate of carbon newlyExpand

An experimental and modeling study of responses in ecosystems carbon exchanges to increasing CO2 concentrations using a tropical rainforest mesocosm
The ecosystem carbon exchanges in the enclosed rainforest of Biosphere 2, an enclosed apparatus comprised of large synthetic ecosystems, were measured and modeled during the winter of 1995–1996 underExpand

Isotopic fractionation during cellulose synthesis in two mangrove species: Salinity effects
Abstract Carbon, non-exchangeable hydrogen, and oxygen isotope ratios of cellulose of Avicennia germinans and Rhizophora mangle plants hydroponically grown under different salinities (0, 18, 45% seaExpand
