Thermal acclimation and the dynamic response of plant respiration to temperature.
Temperature-mediated changes in plant respiration (R) are now accepted as an important component of the biosphere's response to global climate change. Here we discuss the underlying mechanismsExpand

Plant phenotypic plasticity in a changing climate.
Climate change is altering the availability of resources and the conditions that are crucial to plant performance. One way plants will respond to these changes is through environmentally inducedExpand

The hot and the cold: unravelling the variable response of plant respiration to temperature.
When predicting the effects of climate change, global carbon circulation models that include a positive feedback effect of climate warming on the carbon cycle often assume that (1) plant respirationExpand

Response of root respiration to changes in temperature and its relevance to global warming
Global warming over the next century is likely to be associated with a change in the extent to which atmospheric and soil temperatures fluctuate, on both a daily and a seasonal basis. The averageExpand

Leaf respiration of snow gum in the light and dark. Interactions between temperature and irradiance.
We investigated the effect of temperature and irradiance on leaf respiration (R, non-photorespiratory mitochondrial CO(2) release) of snow gum (Eucalyptus pauciflora Sieb. ex Spreng). Seedlings wereExpand

Acclimation of snow gum (Eucalyptus pauciflora) leaf respiration to seasonal and diurnal variations in temperature: the importance of changes in the capacity and temperature sensitivity of respiration
We investigated the relationship between daily and seasonal temperature variation and dark respiratory CO(2) release by leaves of snow gum (Eucalyptus pauciflora Sieb. ex Spreng) that were grown inExpand

Thermal acclimation of leaf and root respiration: An investigation comparing inherently fast- and slow-growing plant species
We investigated the extent to which leaf and root respiration W differ in their response to short- and long-term changes in temperature in several contrasting plant species (herbs, grasses, shrubsExpand

The crucial role of plant mitochondria in orchestrating drought tolerance.
BACKGROUND Around the world, the frequency and intensity of droughts is increasing as a result of global climate change, with important consequences for the growth and survival of agricultural andExpand

Acclimation of photosynthesis and respiration is asynchronous in response to changes in temperature regardless of plant functional group.
Gas exchange, fluorescence, western blot and chemical composition analyses were combined to assess if three functional groups (forbs, grasses and evergreen trees/shrubs) differed in acclimation ofExpand

Response of plant respiration to changes in temperature: mechanisms and consequences of variations in Q(10) values and acclimation
The effects of short- and long-term changes in temperature on plant respiration (R) are reviewed. We discuss the methods available for quantifying the short- and long-term temperature-dependence ofExpand
