Faster Field Measurements of Asat

Faster Field Measurements of Asat

Introduction

Measurement of the light-saturated rate of net CO2 fixation under ambient conditions (Asat ) is an important physiological parameter for the investigation of genetic differences in plant breeding programs, ecological studies, and response to environmental stresses or chemical treatments.

To obtain a reliable mean value of Asat for a plot, treatment or species, numerous measurements may need to be averaged. One challenge is that leaves can take 20 to 30 minutes to fully acclimate after being exposed to saturating…

Studying Global Climate Change in the Pyrenees Mountains

Studying Global Climate Change in the Pyrenees Mountains

FLUXPYR, the European network focused on global climate and land use change, manages micrometeorological stations in the Pyrenees Mountains, an area known for its fragile ecosystems.  The network has just installed their third tower, equipped with the LI-7200 Enclosed Path CO2/H2O Analyzer.  Teams from Spain, France, and Andorra are using the eddy covariance technique, remote sensing, and modeling, to propose guidelines for sustainable land and resource management.  To learn more about FLUXPYR’s research initiatives in the Pyrenees, visit www.fluxpyr.eu, and…
