Does day and night sampling reduce spurious correlation between canopy photosynthesis and ecosystem respiration?
Dennis Baldocchi, Cove Sturtevant

It is necessary to partition eddy covariance measurements of carbon dioxide exchange into its offsetting gross fluxes, canopy photosynthesis, and ecosystem respiration, to understand the biophysical controls on the net fluxes. And independent estimates of canopy photosynthesis (G) and ecosystem respiration (R) are needed to validate …

Mature Semiarid Chaparral Ecosystems Can Be A Significant Sink For Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide
Luo, H., Oechel, W. C., Hastings, S. J., Zulueta, R., Qian, Y., Kwon, H.

Carbon flux in arid and semiarid area shrublands, especially in old-growth shrub ecosystems, has been rarely studied using eddy covariance techniques. In this study, eddy covariance measurements over a 100-year old-growth chamise-dominated chaparral shrub ecosystem were conducted for 7 years from 1996 to 2003. A carbon sink, from …
