Transpiration in cold-limited areas is restricted by low soil temperature. However, little is known about the influence of soil warming on tree transpiration under a water logged and cold soil conditions. We aimed to test the hypothesis that an increase in soil temperature in the absence of water stress will lead to increased sap flow of red birch (Betula albosinensis) in a subalpine wetland. Sap flow and relevant environmental data were measured for B. albosinensis in a subalpine wetland in the edge of north…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
