Modeling Whole-Tree Carbon Assimilation Rate Using Observed Transpiration Rates And Needle Sugar Carbon Isotope Ratios
Hu, J., Moore, D. J., Riveros-Iregui, D. A., Burns, S. P., Monson, R. K.

• Understanding controls over plant–atmosphere CO 2 exchange is important for
quantifying carbon budgets across a range of spatial and temporal scales. In this
study, we used a simple approach to estimate whole-tree CO 2 assimilation rate
(A Tree ) in a subalpine forest ecosystem.
• We analysed the carbon isotope ratio …

Age Effects On Carbon Fluxes In Temperate Pine Forests
Peichl, M., Arain, M. A., Brodeur, J. J.

This study evaluates age-related patterns of ecosystem carbon (C) fluxes in a chronosequence (5-, 18-, 33-, and 68-year old in 2007) of planted pine (Pinus strobus L.) forests in southern Ontario, Canada, from 2003 to 2007. Carbon fluxes determined with the eddy covariance technique were normalized by differences in site …

Carbon Dioxide, Methane, And Nitrous Oxide Exchanges In An Age-Sequence Of Temperate Pine Forests
Peichl, M., Arain, M.A., Ullah, S., Moore, T.

We investigated soil carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O) exchanges in an age-sequence (4, 17, 32, 67 years old) of …

Hydrologic Response To Precipitation Pulses Under And Between Shrubs In The Chihuahuan Desert, Arizona
Moran, M. S., Hamerlynck, E. P., Scott, R. L., Stone, J. J., Holifield Collins, C. D., Keefer, T. O., Bryant, R., DeYoung, L., Nearing, G. S., Sugg, Z., Hymer, D. C.

Observations of the temporal and spatial distribution of poststorm soil moisture in open shrublands and savannas are limited, yet they are critical to understanding the interaction and feedback between moisture distribution and canopies. The objective of this analysis was to study the hydrologic impacts of precipitation pulses on …

Carbon Dioxide And Methane Fluxes From Arctic Mudboils
Wilson, K. S., Humphreys, E. R.

Climate change is expected to alter the Arctic’s carbon (C) balance and changes in these C-rich ecosystems may contribute to a positive feedback on global climate change. Low-center mudboils, a form of patterned ground in the Arctic, are distinct landforms in which the exchange of greenhouse gases between the atmosphere and soil …

Tree Species Effects On Ecosystem Water-Use Efficiency In A High-Elevation, Subalpine Forest
Monson, R. K., Prater, M. R., Hu, J., Burns, S. P., Sparks, J. P., Sparks, K. L., Scott-Denton, L. E.

Ecosystem water-use efficiency (eWUE; the ratio of net ecosystem productivity to evapotranspiration rate) is a complex landscape-scale parameter controlled by both physical and biological processes occurring in soil and plants. Leaf WUE (lWUE; the ratio of leaf CO2 assimilation rate to transpiration rate) is controlled at short time …
