Title: Internal and external control of net photosynthesis and stomatal conductance of mature eastern white pine (Pinus strobus)

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Leaf gas exchange and water relations were monitored in the upper canopy of two 25 m tall eastern white pine (Pinus strobus L.) trees over two consecutive growing seasons (1986 and 1987). Examination of the seasonal and diurnal patterns of net photosynthesis and leaf conductance showed that both internal and external (environmental) factors were controlling net photosynthesis and leaf conductance. Internal control was indicated by a rapid increase and then decrease in the photosynthetic capacity of l-year-old foliage during the development and maturation of current-year foliage, which was independent of environmental conditions. Large differences in net photosynthesis were observed between growing seasons due to seasonal differences in soil water availability, as indexed by predawn xylem pressure potential. Water stress reduced the maximum rate of net photosynthesis and altered the response of net photosynthesis and leaf conductance to absolute humidity deficit
