Importance of the method of leaf area measurement to the interpretation of gas exchange of complex shoots

Publications Posted on: May 28, 2015
Net CO(2) uptake in full sunlight, total leaf area (TLA), projected leaf area of detached leaves (PLA), and the silhouette area of attached leaves in their natural orientation to the sun at midday on June 1 (SLA) were measured for sun shoots of six conifer species. Among species, TLA/SLA ranged between 5.2 and 10.0 (x bar = 7.3), TLA/PLA ranged between 2.5 and 2.9 (x bar = 2.7) and PLA/SLA ranged between 2.0 and 3.7 (x bar = 2.2).
