Influence of temperature and leaf-to-air vapor pressure deficit on net photosynthesis and stomatal conductance in red spruce (Picea rubens)



Influence of temperature and leaf-to-air vapor pressure deficit on net photosynthesis and stomatal conductance in red spruce (Picea rubens)



Tree Physiology 20(1): 57-63



The roles of temperature (T) and leaf-to-air vapor pressure deficit (VPD) in regulating net photosynthesis (A(net)) and stomatal conductance (G(s)) of red spruce (Picea rubens Sarg.) were investigated in a field study and in a controlled environment experiment. Both A(net) and G(s) exhibited a relatively flat response to temperatures between 16 and 32 degrees C. Temperatures between 32 and 36 degrees C markedly decreased both A(net) and G(s). Vapor pressure deficits above 2 kPa had significant effects of both A(net) and G(s). The influence of VPD on A(net) and G(s) fit a linear response model and did not interact significantly with T effects.
