BOREAS TE-05 LEAF GAS EXCHANGE DATA
Get Data

Summary:

The BOREAS group TE-05 collected measurements in the NSA and SSA on gas exchange, gas composition and tree growth. The leaf photosynthetic gas exchange data were collected in the BOREAS NSA and the SSA using a Li-Cor 6200 portable photosynthesis system. The data were collected to compare the photosynthetic capacity, stomatal conductance and leaf intercellular CO2 concentrations among the major tree species at the BOREAS sites. The data are average values from diurnal measurements on the upper canopy foliage (sun leaves).
