Both winter photosynthesis and the release of extracellular DOC are commonly ignored in stream production studies. We examined these contributions in a second-order stream under a completely closed deciduous canopy. We estimate that in Sandy Run approximately 26% of the annual autochthonous particulate carbon is produced between December and March. Measured… CONTINUE READING
