349 Symposium--Soil-Plant-Water Relations: Challenges in Model Selection, Parameterization and Validation

Oral Session
ASA Section: Climatology & Modeling Icreased CO2 and temperature projected for the future will impact plant water relations. This symposium will focus on quantitative research on the mechanisms of transpiration, water use efficiency, energy balances, and carbon assimilation by plants as affected by temperature and CO2. The goal of the symposium is to stimulate discussion and provide information on how to best capture these processes in models.
