Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/227147
Description: A modified Jarvis-Stewart model of canopy transpiration (Ec) was tested over five ecosystems differing in climate, soil type and species composition. The aims of this study were to investigate the mod ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/114392
Description: The responses of canopy conductance to variation in solar radiation, vapour pressure deficit and soil moisture have been extensively modelled using a Jarvis–Stewart (JS) model. Modelled canopy conduct ... More
