Abstract Detail

The Stress of Life with Light:: a Graeme Berlyn retrospective

Gamon , John  [1].

SpecNet – an evolving collaborative network for vegetation spectral analysis.

SpecNet (Spectral Network – was formed in 2003 with the primary goal of exploring links between vegetation spectral reflectance and photosynthetic carbon flux, using scale-appropriate optical sampling methods. Additional objectives have been to explore the contribution of species and functional type composition via spectral signatures and to develop approaches for satellite validation from ground optical sampling. A central focus has been the light-use efficiency model of photosynthetic carbon gain, with the goal of developing optical sampling approaches for exploring the terms of this model. Recently, SpecNet is evolving into a “virtual community” and data sharing collaborative using tools for spectral analysis around these themes. This presentation will review progress and outline remaining challenges in these areas
