Average annual age-dependent changes of carbon accumulation in the stemwood of major forest species (pine, spruce, and birch) of the taiga zone of the northwestern European Russia (Karelia) were analyzed. The changes in carbon accumulation were assessed by comparing carbon reserves in tree stands of various ages. Net primary productivity of photosynthesis (NPP) and the proportionality coefficient between respiratory decarboxylation and carbon reserves in wood were calculated. NPP clearly…

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


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.
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.
