In order to quantify the effects of thinning on biochemical photosynthesis parameters and changes in leaf nitrogen contents associated with the process of crown reclosure, the maximum rate of carboxylation (Vcmax), the leaf nitrogen concentration per unit area (Na), and the photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) were measured at four crown heights in both thinned (1500 trees ha−1) and unthinned control (3000 trees ha−1) stands of ten-year-old Chamaecyparis obtusa (36°3′N, 140°7′E) trees… CONTINUE READING
