Invasive Insects Impact Forest Carbon Dynamics
Clark, K. L., Skowronski, N., Hom, J.

Invasive insects can impact ecosystem functioning by altering carbon, nutrient, and hydrologic cycles. In this study, we used eddy covariance to measure net CO2 exchange with the atmosphere (NEE), and biometric measurements to characterize net ecosystem productivity (NEP) in oak- and pine-dominated forests that were defoliated …

Interannual, Seasonal, And Diel Variation In Soil Respiration Relative To Ecosystem Respiration At A Wetland To Upland Slope At Harvard Forest
Phillips, S. C., Varner, R. K., Frolking, S., Munger, J. W., Bubier, J. L., Wofsy, S. C., Crill, P. M.

Soil carbon dioxide efflux (soil respiration, SR) was measured with eight autochambers at two locations along a wetland to upland slope at Harvard Forest over a 4 year period, 2003–2007. SR was consistently higher in the upland plots than at the wetland margin during the late summer/early fall. Seasonal and diel hystereses with …

Estimating Annual Carbon Dioxide Eddy Fluxes Using Open-Path Analysers For Cold Forest Sites
Amiro, B.

Annual net ecosystem production (NEP) was estimated at three boreal forest sites where open-path infrared gas analysers were used in eddy covariance systems. The analysers showed apparent ecosystem uptake of carbon dioxide during frozen conditions where small net respiration …

Scaling Properties Of Biologically Active Scalar Concentration Fluctuations In The Atmospheric Surface Layer Over A Managed Peatland
Detto, M., Baldocchi, D., Katul, G. G.

The higher-order scalar concentration fluctuation properties are examined in the context of Monin–Obukhov similarity theory for a variety of greenhouse gases that have distinct and separate source/sink locations along an otherwise ideal micrometeorological …

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 …

Global Convergence In The Temperature Sensitivity Of Respiration At Ecosystem Level
Mahecha, M. D., Reichstein, M., Carvalhais, N., Lasslop, G., Lange, H., Seneviratne, S. I., Vargas, R., Ammann, C., Arain, M. A., Cescatti, A., Janssens, I. A., Migliavacca, M., Montagnani, L., Richardson, A. D.

As climate change accelerates, it is important to know the likely impact of climate change on the carbon cycle (see the Perspective by Reich). Gross primary production (GPP) …

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 …
