An infrared gas analyzer was operated in an open-circuit differential mode to measure CO2 gas exchange in intact leafy and leafless parts of skeletal branches of Pinus sylvestris L. throughout the summer daylight period. The photosynthetic carbon sequestration in major types of forest phytocenoses in northern Eurasia was assessed for middle-aged and moderately dense stands. The estimates were corrected for carbon losses associated with phloem transport of photosynthetic products per each meter…

Based on physiological and biochemical evidence, the chlorophyll index of terrestrial vegetation cover of Northern Eurasia was proved a reliable tool for quantitative estimates of photosynthetic
Prolonged Growth of Young Spruce (Picea koraiensis Nakai) Plants at Double Atmospheric CO2 Concentration Stimulates the Preferential Growth of Thick Roots
Two-year-old young spruce (Picea koraiensis Nakai) plants were grown in a climatic chamber during three summer months at double atmospheric CO2 concentration, sufficient content of soil inorganic
Evaluating Various Potassium Sources for Kentucky Bluegrass Growth
Potassium (K) is one of the essential nutrients for plants but is not a constituent of any plant compound. K is substances for activation of many enzymes and influences the process that the enzymes


Photosynthesis Limits Carbon Sequestering in the Taiga Zone of Northeastern Europe
The conclusion is that the primary photosynthetic productivity, which limits the production process, determines the dependence of the volume of the northern-taiga carbon reservoir on the latitude and climatic parameters.
Carbon fixation in eucalypts in the field
SummaryThe rate of CO2 assimilation at light saturation and an intercellular CO2 concentration of 350 μl l-1 (photosynthetic capacity), measured in leaves of Eucalyptus pauciflora, E. behriana, E.
Involvement of Exported Photosynthetic Products in the CO2Exchange of the Skeletal Shoots of Pine
Only this component of CO2evolution from the surface of the skeletal part of the tree was related to the losses of the net primary photosynthetic production in the aboveground part ofThe pine stand during the current growth period.
Relationships between foliage and conducting xylem in Picea abies (L.) Karst.
The relationship of leaf biomass and leaf area to the conductive area of stems and branches was investigated in Picea abies to determine if these relationships were different in different crown zones and in trees growing with and without competition for light.
