Presentation Transcript

At the same time, H2O vapor moves out of the leaf by diffusion (but really H2O vapor moves both directions)

CO2 moves from the air to the leaf to the chloroplast by diffusion (but really CO2 moves both directions)

Ci= internal CO2 concentration. This value can be measured (indirectly) with common gas exchange instruments

Ca= external CO2 concentration

Some definitions ….

(note that this leaf has stomata only on the “abaxial” or bottom side. Some leaves also have stomata on the adaxial, or upper surface. Leaves with stomata on both sides are called “amphistomatous”)

CO2diffuses into leaves, moving “down” a concentration gradient

The CO2

concentration at the site of fixation approaches “zero”

Typical

CO2 concentration of a C3 plant at midday is about 270-300 ppm

Ca = 370-400 ppm?

Net flux of “x” = Fx

(a membrane or barrier with a “conductance” to substance “x” = gx)

The diffusive movement of CO2 into and out of a leaf can be described by Fick’s Law:

Net flux = D concentration * conductance

[xo] = concentration of “x” on the “outside” of “barrier”

[xi] = concentration of “x” on the “inside” of the “barrier”

Fx = ([xo] – [xi]) * gx

Conductance is the inverse of resistance. Both quantities are commonly used. The symbol “g” is commonly used for conductance, “r” for resistance

- gH2O = conductance to water vapor
- gCO2 = conductance to CO2
- gs = stomatal conductance (usually to water vapor)
- gl = total leaf conductance (usually to water vapor)

- Conductance is a PROPERTY of leaf, kind of analogous to its “porosity” to CO2 or H2O vapor. It is NOT a “rate”!!!

- The units used for conductance and resistance can be very confusing -

Applying Fick’s Law to carbon assimilation :

Net C assimilation = (ca-ci) * gleaf

Or: Aleaf = ca(1- ci/ca) * gleaf

(Norman 1982; Franks & Farquhar 1999)

Factors affecting net assimilation (A) and stomatal conductance (gleaf):

- Vapor pressure deficit, D (that is related to the humidity of the air)
- Soil Moisture,
- Temperature, T

Aleaf = ca (1- ci/ca) * gleaf

Humidity and

vapor pressure deficit

The portion of total air pressure

that is due to water vapor is

water vapor pressure (ea)

measured in kPa

When air has no extra capacity

for holding water, the vapor pressure

is termed:

saturation vapor pressure

(es, units kPa)

Saturation vapor pressure is mostly a function of air temperature

When air temperature falls without

a change in water content, the

point of condensation is called the

dew point temperature

Relative Humidity

is the ratio between actual

vapor pressure (ea)

and saturation vapor pressure (es)

RH = ea/es

Vapor Pressure Deficit (D)

is the difference between saturation

vapor pressure (es)

and actual vapor pressure (ea)

D = es -ea

Stomata respond to the vapor pressure deficit between leaf and air (D). Stomata generally close as D increases and the response is often depicted as a nonlinear decline in gs with increasing D.

Aleaf= ca (1- ci/ca) * gleaf

Stomata respond to the vapor pressure deficit between leaf and air (D). Stomata generally close as D increases and the response is often depicted as a nonlinear decline in gs with increasing D.

If D <1, then gleaf/gleaf-max = 1 Aleaf/Aleaf-max = 1 / max = 1

If D > 1, then gleaf/gleaf-max= -0.6 LnD +1 Aleaf/Aleaf-max < 1 / max < 1

Stomata respond to changes in soil moisture ( ). During water

shortage, when drops below ca. 0.2, gleaf declines gradually

down to very low values

Stomata respond to changes in soil moisture ( ). During water shortage, when drops below ca. 0.2, gleaf declines gradually down to very low values

If > 0.2, then gleaf/gleaf-max = ? Aleaf/Aleaf-max = ? / max = ?

If < 0.2, then gleaf/gleaf-max= ? Aleaf/Aleaf-max < ? / max < ?

concentration is about 270-300 ppm

GPP = {f(D)f(T)f(CO2)f()}*APAR

Aleaf= ca (1- ci/ca) * gleaf

ci/carespond to changes in temperature (T). Under low or high T, ci/caincreases gradually to high values

If T <20C or T> 30C, then ci/ca = ? Aleaf/Aleaf-max = ? / max = ?

If 20 C

Next week’s assignment:

1) Using clumping indexes, LAI and values for a conifer stand (Loblolly pine forest, Duke Univ.) and for a Eucalyptus plantation (New Zealand), calculate their Monthly GPP(potential GPP).

- Loblolly pine: = 2.37 gC MJ-1 APAR

- Eucalyptus plantation: = 3.85 gC MJ-1 APAR

2) Assuming that all of the above parameters vary by plus or minus 20%, calculate how Annual GPP would be affected for each forest type.
