The black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) is an important tree species not only for the vegetation rehabilitation but also for the photosynthetic carbon dynamics on the Loess Plateau. Slope aspect and stand age play important roles in the photosynthesis of the black locusts. To investigate the photosynthetic carbon fixation capacity (PCFC) of the juvenile and mature black locusts located on the sunny and shady slopes, we have analyzed the capacity and daily dynamics of photosynthesis of the… CONTINUE READING
