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

Plant ecophysiological methods are becoming increasingly popular in modern research because of their ability to inform ecological and evolutionary processes, and link approaches 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 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 ecophysiologists from academia and industry. The major components of the workshop will include equipment demonstration and operation, measurement theory, and data analysis. We propose a half-day workshop which we will divide into two sessions.  The first session will focus on the basic operation of popular gas-exchange equipment and provide an introduction to measurement theory (responses to CO2, VPD, and light). The second section will cover advanced topics in leaf gas exchange and measurement theory (responses to CO2 and VPD), and include approaches to data analysis.
