  • Methods
    Sampling Description
    Gas samples were taken from 6 sq. cm sections on individual leaves. These leaves were always sampled from the surface to about 2.5 m height and leaves were selected that received direct sunlight.

    Method Step

    Description
    The flux of carbon dioxide and water vapor was monitored from a number of leaves. Fluxes were only measured once a steady state value was reached. This typically took about 30 seconds to 60 seconds to occur.

    Instrumentation
    LiCor 6400 Gas Exchange system equipped with a red/blue light source in the sensor head.

    Quality Control
    Dataset is inspected by PI for QA/QC; standard validation checks for negative numbers, graphs to detect potential outliers .
