Title: Optimality and nitrogen allocation in a tree canopy
Author: Hollinger, D.Y.;
Source: Tree Physiology. 16: 627-634.
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: Physical and functional properties of foliage were measured at a variety of microsites in a broad-leaved Nothofagus fusca (Hook. f.) Orst. canopy. The light climate of the foliage at these sites was monitored for 39 days in the late sprlng and early summer with in situ sensors. Foliage nitrogen content (N), mean leaf angle, and gas exchange characteristics were all correlated with the amount of light reaching the microsites during foliage development.
Keywords: light penetration, optimization, photosynthesis model, remote sensing, simulation model
