BRYONET: A/Ci Curve Interpretation for Bryophytes


Dear Colleagues,

My work on ecophysiological responses of mosses (mainly *Syntrichia
caninervis*) to climate change has included substantial gas exchange work,
and has specifically involved the development of A/Ci curves (net CO2
assimilation rate vs. internal CO2 concentration) under different treatment
I have yet to find information on the interpretation of these curves and the
primary parameters drawn from them (Jmax and Vcmax) for bryophytes, and
would welcome any information on this topic. I am interested to hear of any
researchers/publications that have dealt with these measurements.

Thank you,

Kirsten Coe
