AbstractCompares stomatal conductance and gas exchange rates in four mangrove species, including Conocarpus erectus, in south Florida. Under ambient CO2 levels, there were no differences among species. Under elevated CO2 conditions, there stomatal conductance and transpiration decreased while instantaneous transpiration efficiency increased.
