Studying Tree Cricket Signalling using Infrared Gas Analysis

Posted by: Scott Trimble
June 8, 2021

A team of biologists wanted a tool for CO2 measurement to find the drivers of trade-offs in insect signalling. A portable Infrared Gas Analyzer, which was designed for plants, was found to be suitable for the task because it allowed ...

Improving Carbon Flux Modeling with Plant Canopy Analysis and Gas Exchange Measurement

Posted by: Scott Trimble
June 2, 2021

Gross Primary Productivity models are crucial to estimate carbon flux in time and space. Integrating sun-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (SIF), which is sensitive to photosynthetic activity, can improve productivity estimates. However, scaling SIF from plants to landscape, while including a myriad ...

Root Growth and Nitrogen Treatments in Wheat Crop Rotation

Posted by: Scott Trimble
May 18, 2021

Increasing yield has been and continues to be the holy grail in crop breeding. Aided by minirhizotrons, root scanning is increasingly used to understand underlying causes, such as root growth response to management practices. This approach could help to achieve ...

Climate and Competition: Gas Exchange in Two Studies of Wild Species

Posted by: Scott Trimble
May 11, 2021

Climate change studies are focusing on the possible effects of higher temperature on vapor pressure, soil water availability, and light quality on plants. In native species adapted to milder climates, altered patterns of evapotranspiration could lead to increased stomatal closure ...
