Gas exchange of plants in the field

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Being concerned primarily with uptake of CO2 in photosynthesis, this review examines the role of CO2 in exchange mechanisms; micrometeorological techniques (including flux gradient analysis and eddy correlation); enclosure methods; infra-red gas analysers; flow measurement; and advances in understanding of photosynthesis in the field (with particular reference to response to light, photoinhibition, stomata and limitation to CO2 uptake by plants in the field). Future advances will involve technological improvements, eg miniaturisation of equipment, and simultaneous measurement of CO2 uptake with electron transport rate, carboxylation efficiency and stomatal limitation. -P.J.Jarvis
