Abstract

This chapter describes the patterns of energy and carbon acquisition in plants growing at Echo Valley in southern California and Fundo Santa Laura in central Chile. The pattern of temperature and light dependency of photosynthesis is presented and evaluated, and geographic variability is discussed. Resource-use efficiency in important species is compared. Also, the relationship between carbon acquisition and species abundance in the vegetation is considered.
