Transpiration and CO 2 fluxes of a pine forest : modelling the undergrowth effect

  title={Transpiration and CO 2 fluxes of a pine forest : modelling the undergrowth effect},
  author={Vincent Rivalland and J. - C. 1 Calvet and Paul Berbigier and Yves Brunet and Andr{\'e} Granier},
A modelling study is performed in order to quantify the relative effect of allowing for the physiological properties of an undergrowth grass sward on total canopy water and carbon fluxes of the Le-Bray forest (Les-Landes, Southwestern France). The Le-Bray forest consists of maritime pine and an herbaceous undergrowth (purple moor-grass), which is characterised by a low stomatal control of transpiration, in contrast to maritime pine. A CO 2-responsive land surface model is used that includes… CONTINUE READING
