Common methods in leaf gas-exchange research: an introduction to measurements, theory, and data analysis.

Plant ecophysiological methods are becoming increasingly popular because of their ability to inform ecological and evolutionary processes across scales, e.g., at larger ecosystem-level and smaller genetics-level scales. One of the primary aspects of plant function is leaf gas-exchange (CO2 and water vapor) which can be used to understand plant water-use, productivity, stress tolerance, trait screening and phenotyping, adaptation, trait-genotype associations, and more. We propose a workshop focused on current and commonly requested techniques in leaf gas-exchange, led by experienced ecophysiologists from academia and industry. The major components of the workshop will include measurement theory, equipment operation, data analysis, and modeling. We propose a full-day workshop which we will divide into two half-day sessions. Part 1 will provide an introduction to measurement theory (e.g., responses to CO2) and focus on the basic operation of popular gas-exchange equipment. Part 2 will cover data analysis and modeling gas exchange using recently developed R packages. Participants can join either one or both sessions.
