An “environmental productivity index” based on physiological responses to three environmental variables was used to predict the net productivity of a common succulent perennial of the Sonoran Desert, Agave deserti, on a monthly basis. Productivity was also independently measured in the field from dry weight changes. The index was based on soil water availability, day/night air temperatures, and photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), which were individually varied in the laboratory and the… CONTINUE READING
