Responses of leaf stomatal density to water status and its relationship with photosynthesis in a grass
The present results indicate that high flexibilities in stomatal density and guard cell size will change in response to water status, and this process may be closely associated with photosynthesis and water use efficiency. Expand
Deriving a light use efficiency model from eddy covariance flux data for predicting daily gross primary production across biomes
The quantitative simulation of gross primary production (GPP) at various spatial and temporal scales has been a major challenge in quantifying the global carbon cycle. We developed a light useExpand
Annual cycle of CO2 exchange over a reed (Phragmites australis) wetland in Northeast China
Abstract Net ecosystem exchange of CO 2 (NEE) was measured during 2005 using the eddy covariance (EC) technique over a reed ( Phragmites australis (Cav.) Trin. ex Steud.) wetland in Northeast ChinaExpand
Carbon Storage of Forest Vegetation in China and its Relationship with Climatic Factors
Estimates of forest vegetation carbon storage in China varied due to different methods used in the assessments. In this paper, we estimated the forest vegetation carbon storage from the Fourth ForestExpand
Are plant growth and photosynthesis limited by pre-drought following rewatering in grass?
The present results highlight the episodic effects of drought on grass growth and photosynthesis and will assist in understanding how degraded ecosystems can potentially cope with climate change. Expand
Spatial patterns and climate drivers of carbon fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems of China.
The results indicate that gross ecosystem productivity (GEP), ecosystem respiration (ER), and netcosystem productivity (NEP) of terrestrial ecosystems in China showed a significantly latitudinal pattern, declining linearly with the increase of latitude, but GEP, ER, and NEP did not present a clear longitudinal pattern.

Carbon fluxes, evapotranspiration, and water use efficiency of terrestrial ecosystems in China
a b s t r a c t The magnitude, spatial patterns, and controlling factors of the carbon and water fluxes of terrestrial ecosystems in China are not well understood due to the lack of ecosystem-levelExpand
MODIS-driven estimation of terrestrial latent heat flux in China based on a modified Priestley-Taylor algorithm
a b s t r a c t Because of China's large size, satellite observations are necessary for estimation of the land surface latent heat flux (LE). We describe here a satellite-driven Priestley-TaylorExpand
Productivity, Respiration, and Light-Response Parameters of World Grassland and Agroecosystems Derived From Flux-Tower Measurements
Abstract Grasslands and agroecosystems occupy one-third of the terrestrial area, but their contribution to the global carbon cycle remains uncertain. We used a set of 316 site-years of CO2 exchangeExpand
Combined effects of water stress and high temperature on photosynthesis, nitrogen metabolism and lipid peroxidation of a perennial grass Leymus chinensis
The results indicate that severe water stress might exacerbate the adverse effects of high temperature, and their combination might reduce the plant productivity and distribution range of L. chinensis in the future. Expand
