Optimizing stomatal conductance for maximum carbon gain under water stress: a meta-analysis across plant functional types and climates

Vico, Giulia; Manzoni, Stefano


4. The proposed parameterization provides a framework to assess the responses of leaf gas exchange to changes in water availability. Moreover, the model can be extended to scale leaf-level fluxes to the canopy and ecosystem level.
