Learn how a group of researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are using the LI-6400 to study Miscanthus x giagantus, a sterile hybrid grass with enormous potential as a biomass energy source. The group is comparing the productivity of Miscanthus to that of switchgrass and of corn.
Read how Dr. Peter S. Curtis of The Ohio State University and colleagues from various other universities conduct their research at sites like the University of Michigan's Biological Station. Dr. Curtis and colleagues use a variety of LI-COR instruments, including the LI-6400 Portable Photosynthesis System for stem and leaf respiration studies.
Tad Day and fellow researchers at Arizona State University use the LI-6400 Portable Photosynthesis System to study the influence of climate change, particularly ozone depletion/UV radiation and regional warming on terrestrial flowering or vascular plants in Antarctica.
What happens to plants when they are fed on by insects? This question has been the focus of the Plant Ecophysiology Project at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's (UNL) Department of Entomology for the past 15 years. Learn how UNL entomologists are using the LI-6400 Portable Photosynthesis System to identify mechanisms of yield loss from defoliating pests.
