Sensitivity of leaf photosynthesis to CD2 concentration is an invariant function for C3 plants: A test with experimental data and global applications


Rising atmospheric CO2 concentration (Ca) may alter two components (sensitivity and acclimation) of global photosynthetic carbon influx into terrestrial ecosystems (P G). Most existing global models focus on long-term acclimation. We have developed a leaf-level function ( ;e) to quantify short-term increment of p G associated with sensitivity .The ;e… (More)
