Ecosystem respiration (ER: or CO2 flux), methane (CH4) fluxes and net ecosystem production (NEP) near Toolik Lake, Alaska, comparing effects of temperature, moisture and nutrients on tundra C balances.
|Gaius Shaver, 2012 A/Ci curve parameters measured from shoots harvested at three levels in the canopy from 19 1m x 1m plots dominated by S. pulchra and B. nana shrubs near LTER Shrub plots at Toolik Field Station, AK the summer of 2012.. 10.6073/pasta/1f1df6b91414fd96c0c4e0aa9933f43b||
A/Ci curve parameters and modeled carboxylation, electron transport, and triose-phosphate utilization efficiency rates from shoots clipped from low, mid, and the top of tall, shrub canopies dominated either by Salix pulchra or Betula nana species. Six shoots were harvested from each 1m x 1m plot, two from each level in the canopy. These plots were located near the LTER shrub plots at the Toolik Field Staion, AK for point frame measurements, and all measurements took place the summer of 2012.
