students using the LI-6400XT

“The LI-6400XT has made concepts they [students] read in the textbook real. For example, they can see how plants really do respond rapidly to light conditions. It has made what they read and learn in the classroom relevant.”

Looking For a New Way to Engage Your Students?

The LI-COR Environmental Education Fund (LEEF) Program offers grants toward the purchase of research-grade instrumentation for undergraduate education. Use real-time measurements to illustrate how real-life processes work. For instance, adjust the CO2 levels inside a photosynthesis system leaf chamber so students can witness the effects firsthand. Plant photosynthesis, respiration, ecosystem gas flux, and radiant energy flux come to life when students actually experience how various parameters affect these processes.

With LEEF Instrumentation,
You Can:

  • Show plant and ecosystem functions in a compelling, dynamic way.
  • Get students excited about science through hands-on activities and undergraduate research.
  • Give students resumé-building experience with top research tools.

Multiple LEEF Packages are Available in Four Categories

Photosynthesis

Use one of our portable photosynthesis systems to demonstrate important interactions between plants and their environment. In addition to leaf gas exchange measurements, accessories are available for measuring leaf chlorophyll fluorescence, soil respiration, and insect respiration.

Eddy Covariance

Measure the exchange of CO2 and H2O between a section of the earth’s surface and the atmosphere. Typical applications include ecology, climatology, and agricultural studies.

Learn More



Soil Flux

Measure the exchange of CO2 between the soil and the atmosphere. LI-COR’s chamber-based system can enhance soil science courses as well as climatology and carbon budget studies.

Learn More



Light

Measure the radiant energy used by plants for photosynthesis. Choose the terrestrial or underwater package for use in plant science, greenhouse management, agriculture, aquaculture, oceanography, and more.
