A method for approximating the photosynthetic production of stand members inside the canopy


, : A method for approximating the photosynthetic production of stand members inside the canopy. Journal of Applied Ecology 16(1): 243-252

A method is described which estimates the photosynthetic products which are available for the growth of a plant within a canopy. The basic assumptions are that a plant can be treated as an integrator of the curvilinear relationship of photosynthetic rate on light, and that variation in photosynthetic rate of the leaves of community members can be reduced to the variation in the light intensity. Equipment is described which integrates light intensity, simulating the curvilinear relationship between photosynthesis and light intensity. A strong correlation was found between actual dry matter production and the photosynthetic production estimated by the present method.

Cardiorespiratory fitness (VO2max) is associated with glycemic control, yet the relationship between VO2max and the underlying determinants of glycemic control is less clear. Our aim was to determine whether VO2max is associated with insulin sensi...

The first ~1% of spores released from sporangia (early spores) during Bacillus subtilis sporulation were isolated, and their properties were compared to those of the total spores produced from the same culture. The early spores had significantly l...

The size of B-cell subsets appears to be under genetic control, but the mechanism of this regulation is unknown. By analysing five congenic strains of mice that differ only in their H2 haplotype, we addressed the issue of whether the MHC genes are...
