An empirical model was developed to simulate photosynthetic responses of leaves to highly fluctuating light, with a special focus on the functional role of photosynthetic induction and capacity. Based on diurnal courses of light as input data, which were recorded at natural plant sites, we applied this model to simulate the corresponding course of net photosynthesis (output data) for leaves of two neotropical tree species. All six model input parameters (leaf-specific) were obtained via… CONTINUE READING
