Accounting for foliar gradients in Vcmax and Jmax improves estimates of net CO2 exchange of forests

Bachofen, Christoph ; Hülsmann, Lisa ; Revill, Andrew ; Buchmann, Nina ; D'Odorico, Petra


Vertical gradients in the canopy represent a major challenge for scaling from foliar photosynthesis to ecosystem-level CO2 fluxes. We tested whether accounting for independent gradients of carboxylation capacity (Vc(max)) and photosynthetic electron transport (J(max)) improves estimates of forest net ecosystem CO2 exchange (NEE). We modified the process-based Soil-Plant-Atmosphere (SPA) model to ...
