A dynamic photosynthesis model

RuBP-regeneration parameter response to heat, water stress and light

Nicolas Bambach has been working with me and Kyaw Tha Paw U on creating a dynamic model of damage to photosynthesis that serves as an ‘add-on’ to the Farquhar-von Caemmerer-Berry model. ┬áThe model allows RuBP-regeneration limitation parameters to be damaged in response to extremes in leaf temperature, stomatal closure and limitations to photosynthesis and irradiance. Awesome!

Nico’s work on dynamic damage to photosynthesis is calibrated with in situ fluorometers on almonds and allows for the interaction of environmental stress factors on the classical RuBP-regeneration parameters of photosynthesis\

Nico’s work is currently under review…
