Abstract: Tropical climate is getting warmer, with more pronounced dry periods in large areas. The productivity and climate feedbacks of future tropical forests depend on the ability of trees to acclimate their physiological processes, such as photosynthesis and leaf respiration, to these new conditions. However, knowledge on this in tropical tree species is currently limited due to data scarcity. In this thesis, I have studied warming and seasonal drought responses of photosynthesis and leaf dark respi... more
