Stomatal conductance in mature deciduous forest trees exposed to elevated CO2

  title={Stomatal conductance in mature deciduous forest trees exposed to elevated CO2},
  author={Sonja Gisela Keel and Steeve Pepin and Sebastian Leuzinger and Christian K{\"o}rner},
Stomatal conductance (g s) of mature trees exposed to elevated CO2 concentrations was examined in a diverse deciduous forest stand in NW Switzerland. Measurements of g s were carried out on upper canopy foliage before noon, over four growing seasons, including an exceptionally dry summer (2003). Across all species reductions in stomatal conductance were smaller than 25% most likely around 10%, with much variation among species and trees. Given the large heterogeneity in light conditions within… CONTINUE READING
