Leaf area index and net primary productivity along subtropical to alpine gradients in the Tibetan Plateau

  title={Leaf area index and net primary productivity along subtropical to alpine gradients in the Tibetan Plateau},
  author={Yude Pan and Hua Ouyang and Zhenhang and Q Lu},
Aim Our aims were to quantify climatic and soil controls on net primary productivity (NPP) andleaf area index ( W ) along subimpical to alpine gradienu where the vqetation remains relatively undisturbed, and investigate whether NPP and LA1 converge towards threshold-like logistic patterns associated with climatic and soil Mnables that would help us to venfy and parameterize process models for predicting future ecosystem behaviour under global environmental change. Location Field data were… CONTINUE READING
